GRRRRR.....I just wrote and finished a post and the entire thing deleted on me!! So needless to say I am frustrated right now and glad I can type fast!!! So here goes - post is long overdue and no real excuse why just been busy as usual. The babies have been going to bed at 8 or 8:30 each night so no reason I can't post more ha ha. I guess I am enjoying the new quiet time at night ha ha.
So - first update. Mason started preschool on Aug 17th. He enjoys it and I think it will be good for him to be away from the babies some during the day and do something different. He goes to Victory Christian Academy and it is right across the road from our house, well about 6 blocks away, but very very convenient. He wears a uniform too - very cute!! :-) They have an excellent preschool program and I think he will learn a lot - he goes Monday, Wed, & Fridays.
As for our sweet little babies - they are growing sooooo soooo fast - TOO FAST!!! Okay sit down and take a deep breath, what I have to say will shock you. My itty bitty preemies will be 1 YEAR OLD on 11 days!! Yep - this year is almost done and it has FLOWN BY. Today really put it into perspective for me. My friend and I went to visit a girl from our multiples club that had twin boys on Thursday night at the hospital. We went for a quick visit and got to go take a peek at the precious little boys in the NICU. This is the 1st time I was in the NICU since my babies came home almost a year go! And I have to admit when I entered those doors and saw those sweet tiny tiny babies the last year flashed before my eyes. I could barely remember how small they were when they were born until I saw Ty & Trace.....all I have to say is WOW this year has been truly amazing and worth every tired day, every diaper change, and every bottle of milk. Which over the past year has added up to about 6,570 bottles and probably over 10,000 diaper changes. WOW WOW WOW!!!
Now for an update on the babies - they are now all crawling EVERYWHERE and FAST. They all have 6 teeth, 4 on top, 2 on bottom. They all eat like pigs and are now eating table food. Our favorites are grilled cheese, Green beans, PB&J, mac n cheese, waffles, oatmeal, applesauce, pudding, and pretty much everything you put in front of us. They are great eaters and at this point would much rather feed themselves then eat baby food off a spoon. I am NOT complaining. The girls are also pulling up to stand and Tanner pulls up to his knees, he's not far behind.
I guess that's about it for now since I wrote this entry 2 times now ha ha :-) I will try to post more frequent shorter entries and pictures so I can keep everyone updated on the crazy life of the Gorka Family :-)
