Amelia and Allison Tucker's Journal
11 months old!!!
Written February 2, 2013 8:32amThe girls are 11 months old!!! It's crazy to think they are almost a year old. It's like yesterday I was pregnant.
The girls are doing well at home. We have adjusted into a nice routine. They still don't nap at the same time but they don't wake each other up either. They are good babies.
Both girls can sit up on their own. Allison will scoot on her belly backwards. She gets on her hands and knees so it won't be long for her to go forward. They are hitting all their milestones nicely.
I'll try to answer some questions. The biggest one I get is about their ng tubes or feeding tubes. We have no idea how long they will be in for. We are working on them taking food by mouth but its a long process. It's not easy to understand. For now they have the tube, their formula goes in the tube, they do not eat food, and they will have it for a little while. We want it out so bad but we need to do what is best for them.
Owen is adjusting well to us being home. He is sleeping in his own room all night with a wake up to go potty. This brings me to the next challenge in life, potty training. He is in the process of being potty trained. I think kids should come with a manual and the ability to reprogram when needed. He is ready to be trained, just wish it was that easy.
Greg is doing well with school. He goes Monday through Thursday. While he goes to school, Owen goes to daycare aka school. I hang with the girls getting the house cleaned, dinners done, and meeting with ten million people. Oh and cloth diapering. Anyone who cloth diapers know this is a task in of itself.
We have gone to the mall twice with all three kids. We aren't afraid! It takes two bags and lots of prep. Valerie, we need to upgrade to a backpack. Valerie is my friend who has 10 children, 7 which are adopted and she manages all 10 going to the mall and doctors appointments. She carries a hiking backpack!
Anyways life is good. Just preparing for the girls big 1st birthday party and dealing with doctors appointments. It's a crazy busy but I wouldn't trade it because it means we are home together.

Things are going well.
Written January 23, 2013 9:17amThe babies are happy and healthy at home. They are enjoying their play time and nap times. We had a rough time the first two nights but we are in a routine now. The girls are doing great at home.
Owen loves his family together. He is so happy and loves his new room. He loves his sisters too and always is willing to help. I'll ask him to go check on the babies and he tells me okay and he goes and picks up their legs and says no poop. It's too cute.
