Bad blogger....

okay -- that's me. I've planned on updating the blog many times over the last few weeks and then something happens and I just don't have the time. I also haven't read any blogs in weeks either. I need to do that today too and catch up with all my blogger friends.

The girls are doing great and getting so big!!!! In the past two months Cassie has grow .75 inches and Chloe has grown 1.75 inches!!!! That's just crazy. My baby girl - Chloe - is catching up in so many ways. She's actually on target -- according to Early On - who evaluated both girls two weeks ago -- in all areas now except for fine motor skills and speech. We are going to do some speech classes with Chloe and hopefully get her talking more. She's now saying about 60 words and learning more words and things every week. Cassie on the other hand is on target or advanced a little bit in all areas except in speech. And she's only now behind a few months in speech. Like I have said before -- these girls just amaze me.

Both girls are still great eaters and love fruits and veggies. Chloe would live on bananas if we let her and Cassie would live on sticky white rice and tomatoes. Those are their favorites right now.

Even after having Chloe on two different -- expensive -- brands of probiotics she was still having lots of liquid poop issues, even with no dairy at all. I did some research on some other brands and read a ton of reviews for them and decided to switch Chloe's probiotics....again. The brand we switched her too is very cheap compared to the other two brands we used. But I figured it was worth a try since we weren't getting any positive results with the other brand she has been on for the past 3 months. She's been on them for a little over a week now and since the 4th day on them we have had solid/normal poop. That's very exciting news around here. For the past 7 months that has rarely happened. I'm going to give it another week and then try to slowing add some dairy back into her diet and see what happens. So far I'm very impressed with these probiotics.

Not much else going on around here and I'll end this post with the promise to update the blog more often and I'll add some pictures too.

Here are some pictures of our FCC picnic and also Cassie and Chloe giving lessons on the proper way to set a table. With your favorite fuzzy blanket of course. And just some other cute pictures of them. Since mama thinks they are cuties things ever!

I love the new pictures! Such cute, cute girls. Great news about both girls progress in all areas. Makenna is getting ready to be evaluated here in NY because they don't accept the KY evaluations. She is really behind in her speech and the frustration is building (for her and us!)
