The Texas Tooth Step...

Babies Situation:

The Girls have had a good first week of the year. Kinsley is cutting her first tooth but doesn’t seem to be too bothered by it. She has a small, sharp, nobby tooth that just broke the surface. A few months ago, she had more symptoms than now which included eating poorly, broken sleep patterns, and lots of drooling. Trinity is going through all of that right now. She is drooling heavily and eating poorly. She doesn’t want to play as much and is very needy – she wants to be held a lot.

The occupational therapist, Julie, came this week after being off for the holidays. She was very impressed with how much the Girls have changed and improved over the last few weeks. She said both Girls are above their adjusted age of 6 months except for sitting on their own. We will be working on that!! Trinity is stronger throughout her back and can sit a little better and for longer but she still needs assistance. Kinsley is weaker at sitting but she has mastered lying on her side which is the next step to sitting up. Julie feels both will be sitting in the next few weeks!

We are still working on feeding the Girls different solid foods. Today they had sweet potato and absolutely loved it. Yesterday was peas and from what I saw on Kinsley’s face, it isn’t one of her favorites. Julie did tell us that kids with severe reflux will be pickier with textures and taste so she plans to monitor Kinsley’s eating habits. Still today, Kinsley will not eat oatmeal or rice cereal. Trinity will eat everything and anything. You can’t feed her fast enough and she gulps it all down.

Parent's Thoughts:

It has been really neat watching the Girls grow –personality wise and developmentally. Both are very different from each other. Trinity is miss smiley, she loves food, but she doesn’t care too much about anything that she might have to work for. Kinsley is more serious with a sweet smile. Food isn’t her #1 priority but physically, she is all over the place. It seems like the one’s weaknesses is the other’s strength. Overall, we had a good week of health!! Thank you God!!

Our Encouragement:

Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass. He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, And your justice as the noonday.

Psalm 37:5-6
