Yesterday was Brylee and Ellison's due date. They are already three weeks old and are doing great! They sleep so much I sometimes forget they're even here! They've both seen the pediatrician for their newborn checkups and are very healthy. Brylee will have another examination by the cardiologist in the coming weeks to check on her heart, but so far she seems perfectly fine.
Kinley pretty much ignores her new sisters completely. Even when we bring one of the babies to her, she pushes them away as if to say, "Get her out of my face." Devyn, on the other hand, is much more interested. She will point at them, hug them, and bring them toys (I recently found about 7 puzzle pieces sitting on top of Brylee in her bouncy chair).

Brylee and Ellison said, "No photos please!"
The "big girls" are now 22 months old. Devyn is as crazy as ever! She is incredibly dramatic and averages about 100 meltdowns per day. Anytime something doesn't go her way she throws herself on the floor and puts her head on her hands. She LOVES to be outside! If you leave the door to the garage open she'll get into the stroller, buckle herself in, and wait for you to take her somewhere. She also enjoys emptying things...like the fridge, diaper bag, kitchen drawers, toy baskets....whatever she can find.
Devyn taking a break from her normal trail of destruction to read a book in her baby sister's bouncy chair.
Kinley is our independent one. At times she will play with Devyn, but most often she prefers to play by herself--probably because Devyn usually takes her toys and runs away with them. She continues to receive physical, occupational, and speech therapies. Her progress is slow, but steady. She still LOVES to watch her Baby First channel on TV and likes it when we sing to her (apparently she doesn't mind our horrible singing voices).
Kinley's excited face! Practicing her standing.
Fun at the park:
They slept through their first trip to the park.
And just a few more randoms....
Miss Lily's first day with each set of twins. Can you tell who is who?
