The girls turned 10 months old yesterday. 10 months. I can’t even believe it. We are fast approaching not only most time spent out of the hospital than in during their little life times, but also their First Birthday. Stop. It.
Both girls are doing very well. They have VERY different personalities that have blossomed since being off treatment. They both have two bottom teeth which all came in at different times….two teething babes is it’s own form of torture! Both girls are also sprouting hair and I’m obsessed with it. I can’t wait to do pony tails!!!
Kendal is our chunky baby weighing in over 17 lbs. Her nick name is “chunks” or “chunky monks”. I love her baby rolls. She sits on her own like a champ and just in the last few days can bear weight when in the crawling position. She is a talker. And DEMANDS you pay attention when she’s talking. She also is making huge strides in the eating department. She’s taking baby food SO WELL and just today we found a sippy cup that is working for her. She’s not good at it yet, but I’m convinced with practice she will have that tubie gone soon.
Kenedi is our “peanut” (because she weighs 14.5 lbs) or “lovey dove”. She is so calm, cool and collected all the time. She has the sweetest demeanor and will offer you a smile whenever you need it. She is getting much better at sitting on her own but still despises tummy time. She refuses to lift her head while on her tummy but that’s something we are working on! She doesn’t talk much but definitely observes everything around her. Recently she started blowing raspberries as her mode of communication or attention seeking. Her fine motor skills are very impressive and she will examine a toy for hours. She hasn’t been eating very well lately but she has been battling a double ear infection. Today she seems MUCH better and I’m excited to start up with trying some food again tomorrow.
I have started planning their first birthday party, which is also their golden birthday and I am so excited! I cannot wait to celebrate with them. I think if anyone deserves an over the top gold party, it’s these two little survivors!
The girls are wearing Love Your Melon hats in this photo (Kendal on left, Kenedi on right). Please check out their website and their cause. Such a wonderful organization!
