Happy 5th Birthday Kinnick and Carver!

I can hardly believe that my little 1 lb babies are now 5 years old. Kinnick and Carver turned 5 on March 29th. We celebrated on Sunday, April 1st.

Since cake hasn't gone well the past 4 years, I thought I would get an Ice Cream cake this year. Kinnick and Carver have been eating Ice Cream and bananas as a snack for quite a while, now. So, I thought that they would surely eat their cake this year. Well, Kinnick was mad at something. She wouldn't even look at her cake and refused to sit by it. Carver tried a few bites, but it was so cold, he wasn't real interested. I suppose if I would have put it in the microwave for a few seconds and mashed some bananas in it, then maybe they would have eaten it. I still have a piece left, so maybe I'll give that a whirl.

Kinnick was excited to get her own Ipod touch. She LOVES music and drives everyone crazy begging to listen to Itunes on their Iphones.

New books are always a hit. We gave her a book about a dinosaur that cleans up his room. I'm hoping she takes a hint.

And of course, she got a new BLUE sweater. She wanted a blue sweater for school pictures, but we couldn't find one small enough for her.

Carver got some cool gifts. He got a soccer beeper ball. He's already learned how to turn it on.

Carver did a great job helping unwrap his gifts.

We got Carver an Incrediblock, so he can work on sitting. This will give him something to play with while he works on sitting. He seems to really enjoy it and the new bumblebee ball.

Carver is outgrowing his baby swing, so he got a new swing with a higher back to help support his head. I can't wait to hang it and take him out to swing.

And, one final picture of Kinnick giving her big brother, Hayden a hug. So precious!

Love the updates! I can't believe that they are 5 years old either. In a way, it seems like yesterday, but it also seems like a lifetime ago at times too that we met in the NICU! I am so happy to see how well Kinnick is doing at preschool and how Carver loves his new toys. They are so beautiful. I always think Kinnick looks like she is about to be ornery ;-)

Happy birthday! I was amazed to hear how much Kinnick is talking and how independent she is. And Carver is interacting with his toys so much!

We have the same swing and it's been great. It's held up for over 4 years for us! Hope Carver likes it.
