Almost 6 months...

The state of Arizona offers a free program for any child that was in the NICU for more than 3 days after birth. This program is an early intervention program. A nurse comes to our home throughout the first 3 years of life. In the beginning she came once a month. Now she is coming every 3 months.

The babies are only 4 1/2 months old (gestational age) and 6 months old actual age. Because the babies were 7 weeks early, the nurse evaluates them as of the gestational age.

Yesterday the nurse came over and played with the babies to see if they were doing everything a 4month old should be doing. As I suspected, they are acting more like a 6month old than a 4 month old. Except Alexis, her fine motor skills are more like a 8-9month old.

I feel so blessed!! I went through so much to get these babies. The ups and downs of infertility is hard to explain unless you go through it yourself. And now, I am so amazed at how perfect they are. They are a huge blessing!! They bring Justin and I so much joy, and we are so very proud of them and all they do.

God gave us families, it was in different ways and different times but, he blessed us greatly! He can move mountains, that's for sure!

Love you!
