Destiny started piano lessons at the beginning of the summer..She really wanted to and she has been doing great..She picks up on it really fast. I never have to remind her to practice she is always playing..Well they had a recital this morning to show off everythign that they learned all summer..Here she is playing three different songs.She wasnt even nervous..I was more nervous for her then she was:))

Avery by-passing time

Cleaning out the toy box and then climbing in!!!

Cleaning out the round robin cabinet and trying to fit through but realizing that she doesn't quiet fit:))

This is what Avery does while she waits for sisters to come home. Just a few updates on Avery.. She had her hearing check up and her tubes are open and working very good and her inner ear is measuring sounds really good so in other words her hearing is GREAT and we go back in 6 months for another check up!! YEAH!! We also went back to the special needs/nutritionist dr. for a check up and she is weighing in at 27 1/2lbs..:)) She isn't having a problem gaining weight anymore!! She falls about 50% on a normal growth chart for her weight and we are doing good there..The dr. wants to repeat a swallow study pretty soon to make sure that she isn't aspiring and is good to drink from a straw now i told her that i had been giving her a sippy cup with a thicker straw and Avery doesn't seem to cough or have any problems after taking a drink so thats why the dr wants to check and make sure everything is a OK..We are also going to be starting a straw program in speech therapy which is suppose to be AWESOME for her as far as lip closure and proper tongue hopefully after we do the swallow study we can start that..
Well i think that is it for now...i guess ill let you all know on Thursday what we find out at our ultrasound:))

Well we are in full swing again..We survived the first week of school..Things are going great they are both loving school...Avery and I are adjusting just fine with the girls being gone all day:)) There really isnt anything else to update on..I did have another dr. appointment but it was just a basic appointment..The heart beats sounded good and I am finally starting to gain weight. So far I have only gained 6lbs. but she said watch out when i reach 20 weeks bc then that is when i will really start to gain the weight..I had to have an ultrasound to find the one heartbeat and anyways the nurse practioner said that she thought it looks like they are in the same sac too (which means identical) This is the third ultrasound that I have had and I have had three different people tell me that it looks like they are in the same sac but then eventually they tell me that they arent..but I am not convinced that they arent identical..No I didnt get to find out what they are..It was just a quick one to check out the hearts and there make sure there heartbeats where good..Next week is when I hopefully will get to find out what the babies are..As long as the babies cooperate..So we will see..

Here are a few pictures that Destiny took yesterday..So sorry the pictures aren't really straight..

Back to School Pictures

Well today the girls went back to school finally:)) You can definately tell when summer is at the end. The girls were fight constantly and i think they are getting tired of spending so much time together. But they were both very excited to get back to school. It took them forever to pick out there first day outfits. They had been picked and repicked and repicked over and Girls i tell ya they are quiet funny. All up in there clothes.Oh yeah they both got haircuts too..Do you like them??
I was wondering how Avery would be when the house was quiet if she would seem lonesome so when Avery woke up she seemed pretty good until we went upstairs to get ready and she went into the girls room and climbed up in Brielle's bed and just sat there..She was looking for them..:))

Summer is over:((

Where did the summer go?? I can't believe that it is over for us already..It seems like the kids just got out of school..Well sorry i havent been able to give you all an update on how the pregnancy is going or on anything else lately..We went down to Myrtle Beach for a vacation and had a great time Ill try to get pictures on later or tomorrow..and then my laptop broke once again and so i had to wait for it to get fixed..It is a funny how dependent you become on the technology until you dont have it anymore then you are lost:))
Well I am 17 weeks and no i havent found out what I am having yet..I have an ultrasound Sept 3 and hopefully we will be able to find out then if the babies cooperate. I have had a dr appointment since the last one..I have to have them every two weeks..I got to hear two heartbeats..They were both great and took the nurse a long time to find the second one she kept hearing the first one and the baby kept moving around so she would keep getting that one..I have been feeling ok for the most part.. I have had ALOt of pain and pressure in my pelvic area. I can only stand or walk for about an hour and then i have to go sit that has been VERY painful but when i seen the dr she gave me a muscle relaxer to take at night so that seems to be helping a little..She also told me that i would be having them c-section which i was a little bugged about just bc i have already had a c-section even though it was Avery why i had one. And when i had Avery she had said that she would let me go naturally but she told me that practices have changed since then..I might try to call around to a couple of other dr.s just to see what they say..She told me to try to have at least 3 hours of down time a day..and probably in the middle of october i will be put on parital bed rest if i need it..So now after i find out what they are i will be in panic mode to try to get everything ready..I am having a hard time with a stroller..I dont know what to do..I dont really want a triple stroller bc they are ALOT of money!!! But i think i am going to have to get one bc a double isnt going to work bc i wont have any place to put Avery and I am going ot need a stroller going in and out of therapy twice a whats a person to do??? Avery still needs a stroller and will for a long time..When ever someone else is with me like destiny she could always push her in an umbrella stroller if i got a dbl stroller but nobody will be with me when i go to therapy.
The girls start school on Tuesday..It is hard to believe that Destiny is going to be in second grade and Brielle is starting Kindergarten but i am ready...They are ready to go back to..I have been trying to get school shopping done this week but i have had to spread it out to more than one day just because i cant walk that that has pretty much stinked..but i gueess i have to listen to my body when it says means it!!!
Avery is doing great...She had her re-evaluation for OT this week..This time last year she was showing a 7 month delay for OT and this time she is showing a 4 month delay..Yippe!! She has made so much progress this past year..I am so proud of you Avery!! She has met all of her goals that we set for OT last year and we had to make new ones.
Well Ill leave you with a picture this was taken when i was 14 weeks..i need to take recent ones bc im bigger then that now..but anyways certain people can leave me alone now to post a picture:)))
