Daddy, Babu, and Uncle Tony thought it would be funny to give the kids a taste of lime. It was funny!

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.

Each day, I am amazed at how these little ones are growing and learning. A couple of nights ago, I was laying on the floor with the babies. Alexis took my hand in hers and isolated my pointer finger. She took my finger and slowly placed the tip of my finger to the tip of her tongue. Then, she took it away (while still holding on to me). She then placed the tip of her pointer finger to the tip of her tongue. Took her finger away, and pulled my finger back to her mouth and once again touched the tip of my finger to the tip of her tongue. She pulled my finger away again and you guessed it, touched the tip of her finger to the tip of her tongue. She repeated this cycle for at least 10 minutes. She only stopped because she became sidetracked by mommy laughing so hard.
