Week 11

Here's a week 11 update
Not much to report. Everything is going well. The doctor's VHS still isn't working, but I videotaped through my camera, so there is a shaky video below.
Also, my cousin Sandy has been in labor all day and should deliver soon. Can't wait to meet my little first cousin once removed, and Sarah and the twins' second cousin.

Poor Sarah

So Sarah has been sick the last few days. She came down with a fever Sunday afternoon and by Monday it reached 103. She threw up everytime I tried to give her Tylenol and so Monday night ended with a trip to the walk in clinic (which was mostly useless). She continued to not hold any food down and by Tuesday wasn't able to keep anything down, so back to the pediatrician in the morning. Finally at about 3 today her fever broke and she was able to keep down 2 oz of formula so hopefully the worst is over. I look forward to seeing my happy, smiley Sarah return. :)

Developing well

Sherri had another ultrasound this morning. I didn't go because Sarah had (has) a fever.
The ultrasounds were cool today. Sherri said she could see fingers move. Unfortunately the doctor's VHS is still broken, so no video. But here's a couple pictures.

Last Saturday - Playing with the Cousins

On Saturday Sarah and I went to see her cousins, Rhys, Dilynn and Sawyer. Sawyer was having fun with his little cousin; although it was hard to get them to hold still for a picture. (Blurry handed Sawyer with non-looking at the camera Sarah was the best of the bunch.)

Baby's Growing

The twins are at week nine now. Everything is progressing normally. Week 12 we will have a more detailed ultrasound (no that doesn't mean we will know the sexes.)

Few more milestones

For about the last week Sarah has been saying "mama". Sherri and I don't think she actually associates it with "Mom", but she does seem to repeat it, on separate times and days, so I think I can safely say it is her first word.

This isn't new, but she really loves to jump in this thing. We haven't put her in it for quite a while, but she is definitely a happy baby when we put her in it.
What is new is we started her on carrots today. We debated between peas and carrots, but decided on carrots for absolutely no reason. She ate the first two bites without incident, then as you can see in this 2 minute video (yeah I know it's long) she started not liking it. We'll see what happens tomorrow.


Here's the ultrasound pictures from yesterday. We also brought a tape to record the heartbeats, but the doctor's VHS recorder wasn't working. :(

Sarah's 6 Month Check Up

Sarah had her 6 Month check up today. She did really well, only crying for a short time after the 3 shots of vaccinations. She is growing steadily and here is some updated info:
14 lbs 15 oz
26 1/4 in
Began eating rice cereal a few weeks ago. Tolerated it at first and now hates it. We'll be moving on to oatmeal and veggies in the next few weeks
still mostly wearing 3-6mo clothes, depending on the brand
Can basically sit on her own, as you can see below

Sarah's 2nd tooth just broke through, you can see it (a little) in the next photo

We had our 4th ultrasound of the twins today and everything looks good. I don't know how to operate the scanner so Scott will have to upload the pics later.

Happy 1/2 Birthday to Sarah

Today Sarah turns 6 Months old. We go to the pediatrician on Tuesday for her check up so we will have updated stats at that time. In the mean time Sarah has decided that the birthday board makes a fun toy!

I can't believe she is 6 Months old already. She is basically able to sit on her own now, although as soon as she gets distracted she topples over :)
