Life is good...

The babies are 7 weeks today and I swear they are getting bigger and bigger by the day. They still don't let us sleep more than 3 hours at a time - no wait, let me take that back, Noah doesn't let us sleep any longer than that. He is the one that will start fussing after 3 to 4 hours, at times I think just because it has been 3 or 4 hours since he last cried. I am saying that because sometimes when we get him out of bed to feed, he falls asleep. Poor Julie and Tyler are then rudely awakend by a diaper change before being fed, too, since all are on the same feeding schedule.
It amazes me though how when one cries, the other two don't. People always ask and assume that when one fusses, all of them do and I'm here to tell you that it's not the case. Don't get me wrong, there are times when two cry at the same time but very very seldom does it have anything to do with being awakened by another baby.
All three are now more awake, yay! So, they get to spend some time in their bouncers or on Lucas' little couch for some belly time or with mommy and daddy and big brother. They definitely are working on those neck muscles, their sight as well as grabbing. It is amazing how they learn so quickly.

Lucas is doing fine as well. His speech therapy is definitely paying off and he is picking up on his vocabulary. However, we were told to have his ears checked again since it seems that there might be some fluid built up again. It is kind of frustrating since we have already had tubes put in and replaced at least 3 times and his hearing checked three times as well. Some of it is expected though due to the cleft palate. It is however a little bit frustrating since no one really knows for sure why he isn't talking yet. Of course I blame myself in so many ways, should have could have done more. We are hoping that he will catch up when he starts preschool; I think it will also help tremendously just being around other children his age. We shall see but no matter what, I am very proud of him for what he is already capable of doing!!
Here are few more pictures of our four little ones.
