This about sums it up

This one's for Shannon and Shaunie. Love you!

I hate cookies

No, not the delicious edible kind, i LOVE those--perhaps too much....I'm talking about the stupid "virtual" kind. I am having cookie issues that prevent me from logging in here to's driving me nuts. Actually, it's probably my computer. Nothing I can do about it. But I am working on pictures slowly but surely.

A few noteworthy events:

Ashleigh can now roll from her back to her tummy. I forced her to do it a few times through the crying on thursday the 23rd and later that day---she became a rolling machine and loves being on her tummy! Go figure.

Avery loves the crib. She has taken all of her naps in the crib and has slept every night in it too. She logs an average of 11+ hours a night----STRAIGHT!!! {{{doing the dance of joy}}}

Ashleigh has started sleeping for about 7hours and then back to sleep for about 2 or 3 more.

Jordyn decided it would be fun to go after Avery and grabbed her by the diaper, pulling for all she's worth, until she was fully exposing …

Hi Everyone

We are all doing so great here. Hope you are well!

Ashleigh slept ALL NIGHT last night!! Yippee!! She went to bed at 11PM and woke up for a bottle at 8:50AM. I am so proud of her! She is so addicted to her bottle I never thought she would make it an entire night without one--but she did it! I hope this is a start of a new trend!

We have been training Avery to sleep in the crib and she is doing amazingly well! We can put her in there once we notice her starting to get tired, and she falls asleep on her own. I give her a pacifier and a book or some toy and stand there for a bit then I sneak away once she starts being unable to keep her head up. It's great! We did, however, have to buy one of those little sensor mats for the crib because she likes to sleep on her face...and I mean FLAT on her face. Tony and I couldn't sleep at night with the fear that she wouldn't be able to for our peace of mind the mat will sound an alarm if it doesn't detect the slightest mo…

Update on the appointment

Things went great yesterday at the hospital. They all passed! woooohoooo!

I will fill you in on more of the details when I get the whole report next week sometime, but I think overall, they all scored within the normal range for their gestational age AND their chronological age! YAY!

Big relief. Ashleigh will need a little physical therapy for her low muscle tone, but that wasn't unexpected. Of course they were chatty kathy's ALL morning until we got to the hospital. They were nearly silent (except for crying spells from Jordy and Ash---I had to nurse Jordyn 2ce in the four hours we were there to calm her down). Go figure. We even talked to them all week about saving up for the appointment. I guess they've already started to ignore us. :)

Oh well. I couldn't be happier right now.

My computer is driving me CRAAAZZZYYYY!!!

I don't want to make excuses, but yeah. I guess I'm gonna. Let me explain.

I have a "hand-me-down" laptop that I "re-built" with XP pro. I also installed some additional memory and everything was great. Then one day I woke up and when I went to turn it on, I noticed the power cord looked severed. Great. How the crap did that happen...and I didn't notice it until then?...hmmm. So I ordered a new cord from ebay (probably my first mistake--or maybe second behind even attempting to do any of it myself) and it was working fine until a few days later the cord kept coming unplugged whenever it was moved or bumped...which was fine, I would just work off battery then plug it in when I was done to recharge. Well NOW the battery won't hold a charge and every time the plug comes out, my computer shuts off, usually in mid-sentence. So I haven't been able to reply to emails or update my blog or work on pictures because every time I try to type or move (with tr…
