Kevin and I have been contemplating stopping the blog on the boy's 1st birthday. We were starting to feel like it is pretty boring for most of our awesome readers. Which is a good thing...we like boring. Boring means uneventful!!! :) However, when I read the comment from KH under the comments section of our last post...I felt a change of heart. KH, I will say lots of prayers for your little guy. Ben was in the 3rd percentile for most of the pregnancy and look him now!! He is small, but mighty!!! He is actually ahead in development and soooo active! My thought is, that babies who struggle in utero are born fighters!!! I can see it in Ben!! He is on a mission!! Both of my boys are fighters!! They are going to make their mark in this world...there is no doubt in my mind. Ok...I am bias!! I really believe that their strong will, will take them great places...as it will with your little fighter!! Please keep us posted! Like I mentioned earlier, reading your comment inspires me to continue the blog. While on bedrest, I inundated myself with positive stories that I read on the TTTS message board or other blogs. I loved reading success stories. Jake and Ben are now the ones to pass on this wonderful gift...the gift of HOPE!! :)
Update on our 3rd little peanut: He/she is doing really well! I am currently 13 weeks and feeling great. The endocrinologist is hopeful I will be able to lower my medication dosage soon. I am anxious to stop taking all of these drugs. I don't even like to take Tylenol while pregnant...let alone PTUS!!
We are starting to plan Jake & Ben's 1st birthday party. We are really excited! We are doing a baseball theme. Go figure!! We just can't believe this day is approaching soo0 fast! The boys are growing like weeds and taking off in development. They both are crawling (Jake does an army crawl thing still) and Ben is pulling to standing. They are doing lots of self-feeding and talking (babbling) up a storm! They talk to each other a lot too. It is really sweet.
Thanks again for being a part of our life and lending your support!
Danielle, Kevin, Jake, Ben & Baby K.!
