Week 37

This is just a taste of the pictures taken.
I don't want to give away too many yet because of Mothers Day!

Week 37

This week was great. My boys are all happy and healthy. No major problems or dramas, just what every Mom loves. Just a week of happy babies.

David had a business trip so it was just me and the boys. The kids all went to get their picture taken on Saturday and that wasn't the ordeal I thought it would be. They where all so happy to be out of the house. Although we did have some tears and anxiety when the strange photographer woman was trying to position them. They are so used to me taking pictures that they did surprisingly well. I did a NEMO theme since they all love the movie so much. I brought their own Nemo stuffed animals and that's how we positioned them. It worked out really well for them to have something familiar in a setting that was very foreign to them. The pictures turned out great and I bought the CD so I can make as many as I want. This works out perfectly just in time for mothers day.

Maxim went and got his first pair of walking shoes while at the mall. He slept during the whole thing The shoes are so cute. All brown soft leather with little feet on the bottom. I only bought them for him since the other two babies aren't yet showing signs of walking. Alexander is crawling all over and trying desperately to get to the toys that Max is standing at. Max is pulling himself up and walking very fluently from one piece of furniture to another. I give him less than a month before he walks. Emerson is getting around great now. He is crawling enough to grab toys he wants and to occasionally grab a brother who is not paying attention to him. They are all doing so amazingly well! I have had lots of people ask me if they are delayed because of prematurity and guess what...they aren't not at all. Emerson and Alex are completely age appropriate with their milestones and Max is advanced for 8 months. It's a beautiful thing how God works! We have been blessed and we know that. We couldn't ask for more!

Everyday Austin is getting closer and closer to Kindergarten. We got his report card from Pre-K and he is doing well all the way around. Aside from some behavioral things like his listening skills(which all 5 year old have issues with)there are no concerns and he is good to go! He went for his school physical on Monday and passed with flying colors. He has some issues with his one eye, which he has had since birth but he sees a specialist in July and will probably get glasses or need minor surgery. That should resolve most of his issues. He got 3 shots and handled them like a trooper, not even a flinch. He said "wasn't I brave Mommy?". He sure was. I was very proud. Although it is time for him to go to big boy school all day I can't help but reflect on what an incredible child he is. He was the sweetest baby and has turned into such an amazing young boy. I know he will do well in school but I just wish he could of stayed my sweet little baby for a while longer. I miss that. It's his time to be a little more independent and I will just have to deal with my little boy growing up.
