Well, it is nap time in the Thompson house, and I thought I would take advantage of the uninterrupted time to post a quick blog and a few pics. I should probably be doing homework, but ... well, just but... Can you believe the babies are almost 1/2 a year old!?!? I sure can't. Time is passing so quickly. It makes you sit and think about how they will be in high school before we know it.
Several new things, the babies started cereal and stage 1 foods. That was exciting. Mia the tiny diva eats like crazy! As soon as the spoon starts to get to her mouth, her little lips are already chomping away. Most of what is on the spoon ends up on her face. She will also let you know you are moving too slow. Jevin did well in the beginning. It took a few bites before he decided he would cooperate. Now he does pretty good. Deuce on the other hand...he would gag with every bite. He was not having it! I don't quite understand. I know pureed peaches are not the tastiest, but if you have tasted Enfamil...water even tastes better! So, after about a week Deuce started getting the hang of it. Still puts up a little fuss every now and again, but they are all munching down.
They are all rolling belly-to-back and back-to-belly. They are reaching, grabbing, and passing toys from hand to hand pretty well. Jevin can sit pretty steady while propping himself with his hands. It won't be long before he can do it all by himself. Mia has almost perfected holding her own bottle. She can pull it out and put it back, but she still will forget and drop it. The boys are getting there. Deuce more so than Jevin, but it will come.
Bedtime has become a breeze. For so long we would feed them around 7:30 or 8:00 PM then rock each one to sleep. One Sunday I told Marcus, "You know, as long as we keep doing this, we will keep doing this forever." So mid February we started putting them down after their bottle. A little drowsy, but not always. The first couple of nights, they had some trouble with it. Deuce not so much since he had found his thumb, and Jevin seemed to struggle with it the most, but after about 3 nights, very minimal fussing. Now days, no fussing. It is in the top 5 things that have happened over the last 12 months!
#1 Finding out we were having "A" baby.
#2 Having 3 babies (their arrival).
#3 Sleeping though the night.
#4 Going to sleepy-by all by themselves!
...and I could though making it to 34 weeks and 4 days with no complications in there somewhere, but it's a toss up between sleeping though the night.
Exactly 365 days ago, we had our first sono and found out we were having 3 little babies!! Crazy, Crazy, Crazy!!!
