Tyler is a little "sitting up" champ! Danielle, our infant development therapist, had Tyler sitting up almost the entire session! He either sat or stood up (with help of course) the entire time. Good job buddy! The last couple of days Tyler has been able to sit up for quite a while without tipping over. The only problem is that he doesn't know how to get "out" of it so he'll sit there and cry when he's done. I tried to show him how he can lean over and lay down but he's not quite getting it. I think he needs more practice!
It's just so fun seeing the boys progress so quickly! Parker is also sitting up but seems to falls over after a couple of minutes - or when he sees something he wants. He'll lunge at objects, forgetting that he doesn't crawl or walk yet! Is he going to be the child that jumps off the roof because he's sure he can fly? We are in trouble!
Besides both boys now having both bottom teeth (yep, both boys have two little white teeth in front), the only other news comes from our Pulmonologist. Our Thursday appointment produced exciting news! The doctor checked both boys and congratulated us for a job well done. He said that by looking at them, reviewing their charts and recognizing that they did not get sick this RSV season, John and I did an excellent job and should be commended. He asked me to produce a monthly photo collage of the boys that he can use in his teachings and said that if he was going to do a story on successes, he'd send the news cameras to our house. After the appointment I looked for the band leading our "Good Parents" parade but it didn't show - weird, huh? Ha ha! He obviously made us feel good. BUT what made us feel better is the fact that the boys were given a green light to begin going out into the world. We need to remain vigilant about people washing hands before touching and not being around sick people, but on the most part they can begin socializing with others! I "smell" play dates in our future! He also told us that the boys WILL NOT need RSV shots next year - in fact, they won't even qualify! Wow...this is HUGE! We were walking on clouds when we left his office! Now, we still have to go back in a couple of months for check ups and their daily breathing treatments will continue, but on the most part the boys lungs are healing/growing right on track! Yipppppeeee!
Below are some fun pics from around the house!
