Wowzers! Is it really Thursday already??? Seriously, with four babies at home time literally FLIES!
1. Our Occupational Therapist, Laurie came this week for one of our bi monthly sessions. She was impressed with how well everyone is spoon-feeding and how the quad table works. One concern I had was that Rylin still does not tolerate tummy time well. Laurie taught me a new way to do modified tummy time with a chair cushion. It gets Rylin up on her knees and working her core and neck muscles in a new way.
2. Lily has been trying very hard this week to convince us that we actually have quints and she is the fifth baby. Wherever the babies are, Lily is close by. We have been working on teaching the babies to pet her gently. They just love touching her and do pretty well with close supervision. Lily also has been doing very well with them and tolerates all of their squeals and erratic movements. We try to praise her often and pet her so she doesn’t feel neglected.
3. The quads turned seven months old yesterday. At seven months, most of the six month clothes are getting snug and we moved up to size three diapers (except on Sydney of course). Everyone is officially teething and Mason even has two teeth erupting. Mason is still the only roller, but we are working on it with the other three. During every wake time, I entice them with novel toys and nudge them a bit, but no takers on the rolling. We are also starting to work on sitting with less support. Rylin and Harper occasionally balance on their own, we just provide a safety net in case they tip backwards. They are soaring with spoon feeds and beginning to cry for me to feed them faster!
