Catching Up, Part 1

Hello everybody!! We are still here. It has been a while. I actually had to hesitate when entering my login name and password. I am going to attempt a series of posts aptly named, "Catching Up," in order to do just that. Both Wyatt and Parks are doing great. We missed posting updates on their 4th and 5th month birthdays. Here is a snipette of a drafted post from their four month birthday that never got posted and an update on their size now.

"Parks & Wyatt turned four months old yesterday, September 15th. I can hardly believe it's been that long since they were born. We have come so far in such a short period of time and we have so much to be thankful for! Wyatt has been completely off his meds since the beginning of the month and we no longer have to check his blood sugar. He now weighs over 11 pounds, almost five times his birth weight. He is an extremely happy baby, smiling and laughing constantly. The painful weeks after he came home from the NICU are a distant memory. He doesn't even seem like the same baby. Parks is doing great as well. He now weighs 15 lbs."

I am happy to report that on October 15th, Wyatt now weighs 13 pounds and Parks is probably close to 17 pounds. They are now only a couple of inches apart in overall length and are looking more and more alike than ever. Parks' hair is starting to turn darker, and his eyes have turned hazel. Wyatt appears to be bald his hair is so blonde, and his eyes are now a very bright blue. Parks is around the 50th percentile for his weight unadjusted. If you take his prematurity into account he is well over the 90th percentile. Wyatt has finally broken through on the growth chart for weight. He is in the 5th percentile unadjusted and 25th percentile adjusted, but his overall curve is trending about as vertical as you can get. We have had a few doctors appointments over the last month and a half, but I will post about those later. Here is a slide show of some random pictures over that time to get everyone reintroduced to our little men.

I cannot believe how much they have grown. They are absolutely beautiful. I still think of you often and remember how blessed we all are. The boys will always be a true example of God's work and that miracles still occur. I am sure you have your hands full with the boys (Todd included) and the new job. I hope we can catch up soon. I miss and love you.
