What a weekend!

So I have been off all the weekend and getting the kids ready for bed everynight. It was so nice to do that since I am working evenings now I love being home to put them to bed. Anyway, I realized how much my kids love brushing their teeth everynight! And it is too cute!!!! I also fed the kids some ravioli for the first time this weekend, that was interesting eating the WHOLE jar and it was such a mess! Next time, they will be naked! LOL. I have enjoyed being off this weekend with them. I hate to go back to work.

This morning I woke up to all four of my tires and rims on my car being stole off my car last night. I'm so digusted with whoever did this because we only have 1 vehicle so if something happens to me kids and they need to go to the doctor or to the er I am screwed until I get new tires. The cops came and so did the crime scene unit and they checked for finger prints and there were none. It makes me so mad that they did this and they are getting away with it! And I don't even live in a bad area. Whoever did it had some guts! Anyway, with that being said I will be moving out of my apartment. I'm going to look at a house this week sometime. I just can't believe this happened to me! I'm still hoping it is just a dream.

Aniyah's Legs

Well I took Aniyah to see the specialist for her legs due to them being bowed to the extreme. The doctor told me that after 2 years of her walking she should outgrow it, and if she doesn't then there will be other options like braces for her legs. I'm not exactly satisfied with that because she will have a hard time walking due to that, but I guess that's the only option right at the moment. Aniyah and Izayah both are sick Norman and I have already been sick I still have a bad cough from it, but of course the kids have to get it as well! LOVELY!!! NOT!!!!! They both have runny noses and a bad cough, Izayah did have a fever, but it is gone now. I just hate when my kids are sick because they get so crabby....especially Izayah!

Izayah has been having a hard time eating table food so after trying different options he's back on baby food and I am starting to put chunks of table food in the baby food and he will eat it that way. I think that he doesn't like the different textures. His doctor is not too worried about it though she says as long as he will eat snacks and take his milk fine then theres no worries, but a 1 year old child should be eating normal not just snacks like goldfish and cherrios. So I am hoping that this will help out to get him to table food SOON!

Aniyah now has 4 teeth and unfortunately I hate to say both of the kids have their Daddy's gap on their two front teeth. Good thing it isn't their permanent teeth!!! I'm definately keeping my fingers crossed on them not having a gap for their permanent teeth....please keep their teeth in your prayers LOL!

Happy Birthday!

Sorry I haven't updated in a while my laptop was down for the moment so I had to wait for it to be fixed, but it's all better now! Anyway, Aniyah and Izayah had their birthday last week (September 8th) and my precious miracle babies made it 1 year! I feel so blessed. I had their birthday party which turned out great they really sure loved the wrapping paper! I got them each their own personal cakes which they loved, but Izayah didn't like getting dirty! It was so funny. They had a good time and I did as well. Here are some pictures from their birthday party. Aniyah also goes to see a specialist for her legs on monday because they are EXTREMELY bowed, which is causing her to bend her feet and curl her toes in which all in all is going to bed harder for her to learn to walk because her feet pretty much get in the way. But hopefully this doctor will have a lot of answers for me. They also went to the doctor for their 12 month check up and Izayah is 23.7 pounds (70th percentile) and 29 inches and Aniyah is 20.9 pounds (50th percentile) and 27 inches. They have caught up on their weight, but not height yet. Anyway, enjoy the pictures!

Bath Time Fun!

So I was giving the kids their baths tonight and decided to let them play in the water for a little while. They were making me laugh so hard tonight. They both would splash in the water and stop and look at eachother and laugh so hard, it was so funny.

I got all the birthday plans and presents finalized this weekend. It hit me when I was ordering the cakes this weekend. Gosh, I wish time would slow down! I am so thankful for everything in the past year from the wonderful NICU Nurses to having them be very healthy now. They sure have gone through more than any other child at this age. God sure has double blessed me with miracles.

The kids spent the weekend with their Nana (Norman's Mom) so that I could finish everything up. I was so happy to have them back! I sure missed them but it was a nice break to have!

More Teeth!

Well I woke up this morning and Izayah has another tooth! So he has a total of 7 teeth now, and another will be cutting through very soon! Aniyah on the other hand still has only 2 but her two top teeth I think will be coming through very soon as well. Friday they had physical therapy. And the physical therapist said that Aniyah has extreme bow legs. Babies usually all are bow legged, but Aniyah has it to extreme and she isn't sure if she will out grow it. Izayah has it too, but she's sure he will out grow it. Their birthday is coming closer and closer, it makes me babies are growing up. *Sigh* But I am so blessed. I have been working on pushing their bedtimes to 8:00 instead of 7:00 because they are waking up around 6:30 or 7:00 and with me working at night I need them to sleep just a little longer than that! But they have not been able to make it 8:00 yet. They made it to 7:45 but they just get too tired! But I'm working on it!!!! Today they slept until 9:00!!!! That made me happy! Aniyah pulled herself up on the wall this weekend. They both are doing so well at pulling themselves up. This weekend Izayah was standing up on the gate and he was holding on to it and he was rocking back and forth and the gate fell over on him! So now I have to make sure that he isn't going to be doing that again!

Birthday is coming soon!

I can't believe that Aniyah and Izayah will be a year old VERY VERY VERY soon. It is so sad, but I am so blessed to still have them here. I didn't know at first if they would really make it. They are more than miracles, they are my heros. These tiny precious babies have come so far these are the things they can do now:

-Self feed themselves
-Hold their bottles
-Pull themselves up on everything
-Sit in the big bathtub
-Sit unassisted
-Scoot everywhere they go
-Play with eachother

There is probably a lot more, but those stick out for the most part. It is just mind blowing how fast they have grown. I wish time would slow down! Izayah has 6 teeth now, and Aniyah has 2! Well, that's all for now!
