Abby is our tiny one and weighs about 18 pounds now. She lags a tad behind the others in large gross motor skills, but she is doing great in all other areas. She is very verbal, has been clapping and signing a couple words for the past couple of months, has been pulling to stand for quite a while, but will not stand independently for more than a couple of seconds. She has the funniest little personality and is so silly, and she loves to snuggle. She can give a really demonic sounding gremlin growl that creeps everyone out. Her favorite food is probably eggs and toast, and of course cheerios! She has 6 teeth with no others in sight.
Allie is a little bigger and weighs about 19 pounds now. She is extremely verbal, she can say Momma, Dadda, bye bye, more, uh oh, and dog. She can also sign more, milk, all done, eat, clap, and wave hooray. She stands independently for a bit and cruises along the walls and couch. I don't think it will be too much longer before she is running all over the house! She has the sweetest sounding voice, besides when she is screaming her crazy "give me what I want right now" scream that comes close to shattering the windows. Her favorite foods are bananas and toast. She has had 8 teeth for a couple months now, but no others on their way yet.
Corbin weighs about 20 pounds now. He is not as verbal as the girls but does babble a lot of different things. He also does not sign like the girls, and I can't get him to clap or wave goodbye either, he just looks at me and laughs hysterically. He does love to mimic fake sneezes though which is super cute. He stands independently and cruises along couches and walls, along with climbing up anything possible and destroying everything in his sight. He has the most infectious laugh and is a huge Mommas boy. His favorite food is toast. Notice a pattern here? At breakfast, after he eats all of his toast, he will scream his head off until he realizes you are not giving in and giving him more toast. Then he will start shoving all of the other food in his mouth by the fist fulls. He has had 8 teeth for a couple of months and is now cutting his bottom cuspid teeth, which have been the worse so far.
Carson weighs about 22 pounds now. He is not verbal at all and he worries me to absolute death. He does not babble, he doesn't make a peep besides laughing and razzing. I try not to worry, but this is something he should have started doing a looonnnggg time ago, so its hard not to. He passed his hearing screen, so I am having him evaluated by a speech therapist to see if there is anything we can do to help him along. He is very interactive with us, very playful and makes eye contact, so I am hoping it is simply just a speech delay. He has pulled to stand for a while but will not stand independently. His laugh is hilarious, he sounds just like Pee Wee Herman which is awesome. He does have some sensory issues to textures, he doesn't like grass, he doesn't like squiggly toys, shaving cream, etc, but he is making a lot of progress. His OT says that its a great sign that he has never cried at these things, he just pulls away. She thinks it is something that he will be able to work through and get over since he is so young and making progress already. His favorite food is anything and everything, he will eat whatever you put in front of him, and lots of it! He has his two bottom teeth with his top four about to pop through any day now.
It has been WAY too long since I have updated, so I will just end with a few pictures from the past few months, and try to be better about updating from now on!
