OT and some Sydney sillies

Well Maggie does NOT like her OT (occupational therapy) exercises. Every time we do them she cries (and no we are not hurting her). So she is alittle bit funny about them. She can have quite an attitude sometimes. Maggie's nurse Jessica came today and she is doing fine. Everything looks normal for Maggie.
Last night Sydney wanted me to put one of our Build-a-bear's clothes on Maggie to see if they would fit. So what do you think?
Kind of Funny looking huh? Sydney thought it was fun to do.
Here are some funny things that Sydney has been saying lately..
Instead of George Washington it George Washingtent.
And instead of The Book of Mormon it is The Book of Norman.
Silly girl.
Here are some more pictures.

Just some things.......

Pene is quite a kid. Yesterday while Syd and Pene were taking a bath, i'm not sure what exactly was going on but Pene started calling Syd a baby and so Syd was crying an complaining a that Pene was calling her a baby. Pene can push Syd's buttons like nobody else.
The other day we were watching The Fifth Element, and Syd calls it "The Fit Elephant", silly kid. She said something else funny but i can't remember what it is now, maybe later.

In an attempt to have Maggie in cloth diapers i decided to try to make a pull-on Fleece cover. Well unfortunately I need a different kind of fleece because she peed' right thru it. Bummer but it was still cute. Here is a picture:

And we are a little sad right now. Our sweet little baby friend Elizabeth passed away. She was 6 months old, she also had Trisomy 18.

Cloth diapers and other stuff

Well i have finally gotten Pene back in her cloth diapers! Yay! I wish I could out Maggie in some but they are way too big. Note the pic in a g-diaper. The only way i will get Maggie in cloth is if i buy some preemie cloth diapers (that still might not fit) or make some with a doll pattern that i found. Oh well, we'll see.

Nothing much going on with the others. One thing, Sydney told Suzanne that she liked her Grandpa and missed him because he growls at her. Silliness.

Why are you taking my picture? says Maggie with her Joker hairdo
Don't let them fool you, they aren't asleep.

Moving and other fun stuff.

Well we have moved (yet again). Still piled in with boxes, it feels like for every box i empty there are 3 more. And it feels like they just keep coming.
On to other stuff.
Pene has started telling knock, knock jokes, this is her joke.
Knock Knock
Who's there?
Banana who?
....................... and that is the end of her knock knock joke.
Pene enjoyed a Fudgesicle, see.

Nothing much about Sydney, she is just convinced that since we moved that when her birthday is has moved. So everyday she asks if she is 5 yet.

On to Maggie. She has made it to 4 months! YAY! She has also decided that it is okay to nurse. For the last couple of days i have been nursing her after she has her bottle, not every time because i don't want to exhaust her too much, so she nurses and she is getting the milk to because it's on her face when she is done. So far she is eating ok. She has a 2oz bottle about every 2-3 hours, half breastmilk half formula, and she is not as messy as she used to be so she is getting pretty much all of the 2 oz. And i think she is starting to gain alittle bit of weight (not sure b/c we haven't weighed her recently) beacuse her legs and arms look alittle bit fuller.
Now if only she would sleep better at night.
She was visited yesterday by an Occupaitional therapist to see what we might be able to do to help her with her neck control (she doesn't have much if any) and to help relax her hands so that she will be able to use them if she hangs around for awhile. Well that about all there is for now, here are some pictures of Maggie. Enjoy.
