I can't believe how fast my babies are growing up. It seems like they're older and bigger and smarter every single day. Today they had their 3 month check up complete with vaccines. It's amazing how much time it takes to do anything with 3 babies. We had their pedi appointment, took the rail to Children's to refill Linus's meds, grabbed a bite to eat, took the rail back and it was nearly 8 freaking hours before we stepped foot in our house again!
Simon weighs 12lbs9oz which puts him in the 25th percentile for his age. He smiles the most and has the best laugh I've ever heard. He coos and babbles and will even repeat you if you use his sounds. He is the best snuggler and just makes my heart melt when he hugs my neck. Simon is also our little water boy. He has so much fun kicking, floating and waving his arms in the bath. Simon has gone from being our "laid back guy" to our "hot and cold boy". He's the quickest to throw a fit but also the fastest to smile. Sometimes his face is still red and streaked with tears when he's laughing again. He'd going to keep me on my toes, I'm sure of it.
Linus is 10lbs11oz and is not quite on the charts yet. He's doing pretty well at home on his meds and feeding tube and will see his cardiologist on Tues 1-11-11. He's definitely our most independent little guy but is smiling more and more and has even laughed a few times. He's also started cooing and working his mouth. Linus's favorite past time is to look loving at his "food bag" and talk and smile and laugh. It sits on an IV pole next to his favorite swing along with his enteral feeding pump. You'd think this very dull peice of medical equipment was a damn puppy the way he reacts to it. I swear to you he's never looked at me with half the love in his eyes. If I was the jealous type, he'd be in big trouble. Luckily for him I've chosen to find it hilarious.
Dexter is a whopping 12lbs13oz and in the 35th percentile. Our big boy is so attentive. He can sit quietly and study a toy forever. Dexter mostly hates bath time and seems scared we'll drop him the whole time. How did someone so young become so untrusting? If it were Linus, I'd say he has a good reason to be wary, but Dex? Nope. His biggest claim to fame is that he knows how to fake cry. This kid will scrunch up his face and say "waaa waaa hmmmmmm" then open his eyes and look around like "Did it work? Is someone coming?" SO freaking funny. Cracks me up every time. Unfortunately laughter is not what he's going for so it's mostly backfired for him. :) When he's tired he wants to be held and will rub his face back and forth across your chest and shoulder. Such a sweetie pie, this one.
