Another Month Gone By

She is 7 months old. How does that happen? She finally rolled over. I am sure she would have done it sooner if she was ever laying down. She prefers to be sitting up all the time. Like Teague - she wants to know what's going on ALL the time.
And she still growls. The other day, Quinn growled at me while we were in a store. A lady stopped her cart and turned around to see what the noise was. So funny.
Her favorite toy - her toes. It is hilarious how she can grab that foot and pull it to her mouth.
They are twins. All Quinn needs is a dimple and glasses.
And now for a little Kenyon update - I have been putting this off for too long. Can you believe that we are almost to his 1st birthday? I really haven't known what to say. Basically, he has been struggling. But this past week was much better (at least from my perspective). Kenyon's spirits have improved some. His recent visit to clinic showed that he has gained 20 pounds. That is great news! His blood counts look really good (I don't know what they are but everything is looking normal). His hair doesn't seem to be falling out very much anymore. His diabetes are under control. We are also happy to report that his taste is slowly improving. They are tapering the steroids - but really slowly. It is driving us crazy. But there is progress. Unfortunately, he is suffering terribly pain in his knees. They tell us that it is the result of the steroids (lame). So overall it is better. I am just a little nervous. We have had good weeks and then they can get so bad. So I am cautious....

Annie, I am so glad to hear that Kenyon is doing better. I cant even comprehend what the last couple of years have been like for your family. And I know when this is all done great things are in store for the 6 of you!

I feel the same way about Josh. It must just be because they are our babies. I was never quite this sentimental with the other 3 because I knew and hoped there would be more.

So cute. The other day we were talking about how families have kids that all come from the same "mold." Those two definately did!

Quinn is absolutely adorable!! Her piercing blue eyes! Bella does the same thing with her toes, and it is SO CUTE!

Hang in there. You all have come a long way, and it sounds like overall it's looking good. You're AMAZING! And I love your G.D. lessons - you're a natural teacher, and very easy to listen to. (In fact, you make G.D. FUN! That's a hard task!)
