8 Months old! We've missed you!

So sorry we've been MIA for so long! The boys are 8 months old today. The last month has been full of ups and downs. We found out last Thursday that the boys haven't gained any weight in the last 2 months, and so we are desperately working on packing on the pounds. We'll find out at our 9 month appt. if it has worked. Please say a prayer for the boys that they gain weight like they need to to thrive.

Jack has a swallow study on Friday. We've also now begun seeing our special eduation, physical therapist, occupational therapist, and dietician regularly. We're learning lots of new excercises!

Sumner sat up for the first time on Saturday wehn we went pumpkin picking at Young's. It was really exciting: one minute he was leaning on a pumpkin, the next he sat forward! I was lucky to catch it with the camera too!

Jack can say "mama" "dada" and baba" although not at anything in particular. He's also been sucking his thumb on and off. He has a "very hungry caterpillar" rattle he's become quite fond of. He's also learned how to scream and blow raspberries and he loves to do that.

Summy's talking off and on and is really into pointing his fingers one at a time...also moving only his thumb. He of course still loves his taggie, and loves being tickled on the neck and sides, and playing peek a boo. At Miss M's house, he belly laughed when his friends there danced for him.

I'm going to post our 7 month picture today, and 8 month tomorrow, along with some others! We promise not to be MIA this long again!
