11 weeks

Levi and Lucy are 11 weeks old as of yesterday. They are STILL sick:( They still have the thrush and they have colds on top of that. Basically until we get the thrush cleared up they have NO immune system. So any little sniffle they EASILY catch. I took them to church almost two weeks ago and Lucy caught something that she still has and has shared it now with Levi. No one even touched them. Yes, that is how low their immune systems are. It scares me because it's now RSV season as well as cold and flu. I won't be taking them around people for awhile!!! If we go anywhere as a family it is either outside or in a large space where people won't be very close to them. I am currently trying to combat the yeast through my eating (as well as the medicine they get) I am trying not to eat yeast or sugar.....sugar feeds yeast. This includes natural sugar ie fruit. This is really hard for me because when I nurse I crave sugar. (To look on the bright side....if there is a bright side about no sugar or bread...I might loose some weight:) I'm just trying anything and everything I can to make these babies better. I bought some stuff to do a yeast cleanse but then I read on the back...."do not take if pregnant or nursing." I've got to say having sick babies for 10 weeks is really frustrating! They don't feel well so they get fussy and don't sleep very well. This is hard on the WHOLE family!!! I really hope they get well soon!!! If not we will be spending our holiday season as hermit crabs. I must say that I feel grateful that this is what we have to deal with! Things could be much worse!!! We are very blessed!!!

Now for the individual report.....

It is really important to me that they get as much individual attention as possible! The fact that they are twins is REALLY awesome!....But I just want them to be treated as individuals because they are two different people.

LEVI: BIG NEWS..... He rolls over from his tummy to his back! He did this for the first time just this week (Wednesday, October 20th). He has found his voice. I love to hear his coos! He also does big smiles. He is very strong and will push himself up for quite a long time. While he pushes himself up he moves his legs like he is going to crawl....not yet buddy....not yet! There were a couple of days this week where Ezra and Lucy were both sleeping so it was just the two of us. We had fun! I say we were playing "only child."I love you handsome boy!!!


LUCY: Such a charmer! She will look you right in the eyes and just smile and talk to you. She is a wiggler! She almost always has her arms and legs going. She is starting to use her little voice. I love listening to her talk! She does seem to like tummy time very much. She spits up A LOT! Sometimes I think gee...I would have to feed her so often if she would spit up less:) I Love you Beauty Doll!!!

I told you Lucy is always moving
