sorry it's been so long

Sorry I have been MIA, I have been in the hospital for the last month fighting a blood infection after my latest round of chemo and then got pneumonia. Don't worry I am home and on the mend.

Here's some updates on the babies:

WOW she's moving all over the place. She is crawling and pulling herself up on everything. One baby being mobile is a lot of work, we can't even imagine when all three are moving. She is wearing 18 month clothing and wearing size 4 diapers. She currently has 7 teeth. Three on the bottom and four on top. She looks so funny with her top teeth because they aren't her front teeth they are her incisors so she looks like a vampire. Is taking three bottles a day and is eating finger foods.

Has two bottom teeth. Currently wearing 6-9 month clothing and wearing size four diapers. He is not crawling yet but is rolling everywhere he needs to go and should be there soon. Is taking three bottles a day and is eating baby food at every meal.

Is soo close to crawling, we give it about a week or so. Currently he has two bottom teeth and we believe more are making their way in. He is wearing 9-12 month clothes. He is taking three bottles a day and eating baby food at every meal.

Cancer Update

I just wanted to share with you all...

Best News Ever...


I had my CT scan this morning and went up to see my oncologist right after. He said this was one of the best scans he's seen in a long time. The smaller tumors are either gone or have shrunk and the larger tumor is hollowed out an no longer active. We are absolutely ecstatic about the news. I am hooked up to my chemo pump right now and couldn't be happier to have this toxic drug going into my body because it's working!

Thank you again for all your prayers...they worked!

Baby Food

Since the babies started eating solids we have been making all their food with organic vegetables. This past weekend we had a baby food making marathon! We made peas & carrots, peas, green beans, pears, apples, and peaches. The vegetables were cooked and then pureed. The fruits were baked and then pureed. I then put them into ice cube trays and froze them. Each day we will thaw a couple ice cubes of fruits or veggies and feed them to the babies.

And Preston makes Three

All three babies are successfully sleeping unswaddled!!!

Kesleigh is still waking a few times a night and just needs to be soothed a bit but goes right back to sleep. Not sure what that's all about but whatever. The boys are sleep champs!! We are getting a set schedule down for naps and for the most part (except Kesleigh) I can put them down at 8:30am to nap. Kesleigh just doesn't seem to need as much sleep during the day.

My mom brought them to our last day of school last week so everyone could see were we a spectacle for all:)

Hope you have a great weekend!!

Operation Unswaddle

So far so good. Gavin and Kesleigh are sleeping through the night unswaddled. I don't think Preston is ready yet because he's so little still andlikes being wrapped tight. I think 2/3 isn't bad:)

Here are some unverified weights on the babies. We weighed DH and then added a baby so they should be "somewhat accurate"

7 Months:
Kesleigh: 20.4 lbs
Preston. 16.6 lbs
Gavin: 18.36 lbs.

7 Months!

I seriously cannot believe they are 7 months old. Kesleigh is sleeping w/o her swaddle!!I thought for awhile there she would go to college swaddled:)Kesleigh and Gavin are both sitting up w/o help. Little man Preston still needs some help but he's ahead in other areas (like holding his own bottle). It's just so amazing how different they are. We have started taking them out somewhere every weekend just to get a change of scenery. We hear, "my you guys have your hands full" everywhere we go. Yes, I guess we do but honestly we don't know any different so it's not that bad at all. Yes, the first 6 weeks or so were rough but they are interactive now and so much fun. Sorry I haven't updated more, things are a bit busy around here:)
