Hudson

Hudson is almost four months old now. She is the best baby in the world. She doesn't fuss much at all and just goes with the flow. I just moved her to a four hour schedule and she adapted beautifully and sleeps 12 hours straight at night. I stopped waking her up at 10 just to eat and it didn't phase her at all. She is just a blessing and a happy little baby. She's been rolling over both ways since she turned 3 months and is a pro now! She loves to smile, laugh, and talk all the time. I'll put her in the swing and Palmer and Emerson love to swing her. The higher they swing her the harder she laughs. Here is a couple of her 3 month pictures and a few short video clips.




Here is a video of Hudson rolling over. It's really dark, b/c there weren't many lights on. I had to post it b/c I finally got her rolling over on camera. She rolls over all the time, but when I put the camera on her all she does is look at me and refuse to roll over.

Here is Hudson hanging out on her blanket talking to me.

The shots are here

Palmer's medication has arrived, she's taking Increlex. The nurse came to train me on how to give her the shots. She is getting two injections a day. We have to rotate the injection site, so she doesn't get sore or build scar tissue. She gets the shots in her leg, arm, stomach, and bottom. Palmer is handling it pretty well. She know what's coming when she sees the shot and usually tries to run. She just fuses for a second when she gets the shot and is over it pretty much immediately. The needle is really small. I've adjusted pretty well too, it's just part of our day now. We go back to the endocrinologist in August for a check up to see how much she has grown. Here are a few pictures to see what we're dealing with and of course one cute one of Palmer playing:

Emerson's Latest

For those of you who know Emerson very well at all, you know she's always up to something. Here's her latest. Tonight when it was dinner time she wanted to go get in her pool. I told her no and that I was getting dinner ready. Emerson and Palmer were playing nicely in the living room when I left to go fix their plates in the kitchen. I went back to get them and they were in my bathroom. Palmer walked out laughing with her hair soaking wet. I asked Emerson what she put on Palmer. She gladly told me "sunscreen". When I asked her why, she told me that they wanted to go swimming and she was putting on their sunscreen. Emerson somehow sprayed her and Palmer's right eye. They both had a swollen, red right eye. It's was crazy, the eye was red, the skin around the eye was red, they had red splotches on their forehead, and half of their nose was red. Thankfully, we just took a bath and rinsed them. By bed time the redness was almost gone. It didn't seem to stop either one of them, they were both still happy and playing. Here are a few pictures of their red eyes. Palmer's were worse than Emerson's. Somehow or another Palmer always get the short end of the stick. These pictures were after their bath at dinner saying "cheese".
