Trax Farms

Hi! I just posted some new pics from our trip to Trax Farms last weekend. The boys and Reid had a good time playing in the pumpkins. I also reposted a pic from last year's trip to the pumpkin patch, because the difference in the boys is incredible! Unfortunately, the boys' nanny fell last week and broke her arm, so she is not able to pick the boys up right now. Fortunately, that means that I got a few extra days at home with them until I worked out some childcare alternatives. The boys and I have made good use of our bonus vacation time and have been hanging out with Aunt Lys, Reid, and Grammy. Of course, we also spent some time at Starbucks! I am headed back to work tomorrow, which is good, and bad at the same time. I will miss the boys so much, but I can't stay home forever. Someone has to pay the bills around here and Ross and Riley are too busy playing and napping to go get jobs! Thanks for checking in!

Bye, Bye Magical Hat!

ROSS IS FINISHED WITH HIS HELMET!!!! Yeah!!! He had his last appointment today and he has made such great progress that he does not have to wear it any more! I posted a bunch of new pics, including two of his head so you can all see how great he looks. The boys also had their 15 month checkup today and they are totally healthy kiddos! Ross now weighs 23 lbs 14 oz and Riley is 24 lbs 13 oz. They are both 31 inches tall. The boys also had their legs casted today so their braces can be made. They should have them in early November. Riley's will be covered in a truck pattern and Ross will have fish all over his! Check out the pics!

Riley's Re-eval

Riley had his annual re-evaluation yesterday and he ROCKED! His tests showed average development in social skills and slightly above average development in cognitive skills, for his real (not adjusted for prematurity) age! Way to go, Riley! He has made excellent progress in OT and only showed minor delays in fine motor skills. Although he has made progress with his gross motor skills, he is still having more significant trouble in that area. He is going to be wearing DAFO's, similiar to the ones Ross will be wearing, to help stabilize him. Overall, the entire team was pleased with his progress and I am thrilled with how beautifully he is doing!
