November 25th, 2008
What are we up to? Well, Kinnick is still working on getting used to her new glasses. She does pretty good until she runs out of toys to play with within reaching distance, then she takes her glasses off and plays with them. However, she keeps them on for a few hours at a time. Carver is still working on sitting. He still has a long way to go, but he makes a good effort most of the time.
Carver's incision is healing very nicely. The hematoma is already completely resolved. His hair is starting to grow back. He'll be ready for a hair cut in another 2 weeks. Activation day is set for December 16th. What a great Christmas gift - hearing! We can hardly wait to see his reaction to sound.
Kinnick got her first haircut - complements of Nurse Marci. She wears lots of hats at our house. Kinnick looks like a smaller version of Katie Holmes, now. So cute!
Kinnick is starting to show some interest in crawling. We put her in a crawling position and rock her back and forth. She used to HATE putting her hands on the floor. She's starting to like it. Hopefully we'll have her crawling over the next couple of months.
Both kiddos had to get 3 shots the other day - Hepatitis A, Flu shot, and DTAP. They weren't too happy about the shots, but really didn't have any negative effects after getting them.
Kinnick and Carver will get their second Synagis shots next week. It seems like they just got their shots. They're both doing pretty good right now. Kinnick is sounding a little junky, so hopefully she's not coming down with cold number 4. She needs to grow. She still weights 17 lbs. Carver weights 19 lbs 2 oz. We stuff them until they about split at the seems, but they still don't gain weight. It's crazy.
We're going to celebrate Thanksgiving at home this year with no visitors. Kinnick and Carver will enjoy Gerber 2nd foods sweet potatoes, ham, and applesauce.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving.
