The twins are growing like crazy and meeting new developmental milestones all the time. Both girls are rolling all over and love to spend time on their bellies. This is much different from our other two children who hated tummy time. I believe they like it so much because they can be in on the action of their siblings playing.
On July 16th the twins each got their first tooth with in a couple of hours of each other! They are out to prove just how identical they really are. However, just to throw us off, Brooklyn got her second tooth on Sunday and Brienna has yet to break the second one through.
At the beginning of July, the girls began eating cereal and babyfood! They are growing so quickly! They of course LOVE it now! Brienna had to be convinced but Brooklyn will eat anything you feed her. The twins’ personalities are different on any given day, but neither of them are consistent in their personality. It changes from day to day. But, I guess they are women, right?!?! I can only imagine what they will be like at 13!
We have been spending a lot of time camping in our new camper and the kids love spending the time outdoors. Don’t get me wrong, it is A LOT of work taking the four kids camping but, totally worth it!
With all of that said, this is going to be the last entry I will be making on the blog. The twins are done with doctor appointments and are down to the normal “well-child” check-ups and we are ready to go on as a normal family. If you would like to stay updated and see periodic pictures of the twins, I occasionally post them on Facebook. Just look me up and tell me you were following the blog!
We want to take this opportunity to thank you again for supporting us through our journey with monoamniotic twins! Our lives have changed dramatically over the past year but we couldn’t be happier with the girls at home, safe and healthy. We are truly blessed.
The bible verse at the top of the blog is so true. And included in the “one blessing after another” is our friends and family. Thank you again for all the support!
I would also like to send out a prayer request. A little that girl that I have watched at daycare fell into a campfire on Sunday and is at the burn center in St. Paul. She is doing well and had surgery this morning. Please send up a prayer for Autumn to make a full recovery! Here is her caring bridge site: www.caringbridge.org/visit/autumnaclark
Thanks again for all the thoughts, prayers, and support you provided during this journey. We would not have been able to do it alone and all your acts of kindness are greatly appreciated!
Mike, Kelly, Sydney, Taiton, Brooklyn and Brienna
