Week 45

This week has been great! No problems of any kind. Max is still trying to walk. He takes a few steps than gets nervous and plops down. The physical therapist said he will no longer need physical therapy soon since he is above average and not testing as a preemie at all. Her only concern was his speech since he seems to be the quiet one. This is just that he is not as verbal as Alex who has been "talking" since he was three months old or Emerson who is the babble king! He was however the first to laugh out loud and the first to shake his head "no". But within a couple of her hours saying he is a little delayed in speech, my angel baby decided to break his silence. He started "dadadadadadada" and "ut oh" and "bababababa". That will show her! Say my baby is delayed in speech...he'll show you! He just choose to not say anything! Emerson is super baby. He was stationary for so long that now I can't get him to sit still. He's mobile from the time he wakes up until he goes to bed. He is standing up on everything and is starting to walk from one side of the furniture to the other. I think I almost liked it better when he couldn't crawl! I could always count on him to be where I left him if I had to leave the room. Now I have to watch him every second. Alex is growing and talking up a storm. Everyday he says more and more words. He now sings at the top of his lungs. He makes me laugh so hard. He will stand at the couch and sing "oh baby, oh baby" over and over again! When David comes home he sings the "dada" song. He dances while he sings, shaking his little bottom all around. What an amazing little guy! Austin had a rough behavioral week. We had some listening issues ,problems with following directions and behaving in general but we are hoping after a long talk and some much needed restrictions we will have a better week to come. We are getting him enrolled in some vacation bible school sessions and possibly soccer, if he gets used to his glasses quickly! I know it's the age and just plain boredom since he is out of school so we are not being to harsh on him. We have finally finished his swing set and are hoping to get the new pool installed within the next week, this should help.

I am feeling ,much better. I am now officially out of my first trimester and the morning sickness has subsided, somewhat. I am still throwing up several times a week but at least its not every ten minutes! I do wish I would get a burst of energy. I am so tired all the time. So I have now heard every stupid comment in the world. Since most people know I am pregnant again, I get so may discouraging comments. I thought it was bad when I was pregnant with the triplets. But now it seems all I hear is..."how awful", "poor you", "I would kill myself", "just shoot me if that happens". I swear if I don't punch someone it will be amazing. I am not a violent person by nature, but these people are getting on my last nerve. So this is what I have to say to those who think this baby is a bad thing...I always wanted to be a mom. I knew if God blessed me with the ability to have children that I would be the best mom I could possibly be. I felt so blessed when Austin came into my life. He was so amazing and perfect. I felt if he was the only one that my life would be complete. When I found out I was pregnant with the boys I was so thrilled, scared but thrilled. I heard the most horrible things from people. But I let their comments slide and concentrated on keeping the babies and myself healthy. When they where born it was the best and scariest moment of my life. But everyone turned out to be happy and healthy. Now I let most comments about the triplets slide. I mean come on people it's only the uninformed and frankly the unintelligent people that make the stupid comments I've heard. When it comes to baby number five...we are thrilled. Thrilled that we have 4 beautiful, happy, healthy children. Thrilled that we have another one on the way and thrilled that God blessed us with the ability and the means to take care of ALL of our children. So to all that think my children are some sort of circus freaks because they are multiples or think differently about Austin because he is adopted or that think baby#5 is a mistake. I say...well...I am a christian woman and will not say what I really want to but I do say, keep your comments to yourself. Didn't your mother teach you, if you have nothing nice to say than say nothing at all!
