Thursday, July 2, 2009 - Update

Making our fourth of July plans

Oh, they'll be so much fun!

Thanks to everyone for your comments. I know that I shouldn't worry about Olivia's weight gain. I tell myself that over and over again, but I still do. Maybe that will lessen with time. . .ya know, when there will be something else to worry about. :) She is doing fabulous with her vocabulary. Today, she saw the squirrel at grandma's house and said, "Skirl! Woof Woof!" Okay, so squirrels don't say woof woof, but I couldn't believe she said squirrel!

I am really looking forward to this weekend. Tomorrow night I'll be hangin' tough with my girlfriends at the New Kids On The Block concert. I really really really need a night out to relax and have a good time. Then, Saturday will be the 5th (?) annual Glunt fireworks display. We always get together with Joel, Laura, Julia and Rebekah to shoot off fireworks and watch our neighbors' displays. This year, we're hoping and praying that it won't be the last as they face the prospect of moving away. It just wouldn't be the 4th without them. We have envisioned doing this for many more years. And one day the girls will invite their boyfriends and instead of watching the fireworks we'll be trying to determine whether they're worthy of our girls. This weekend will definitely be a "blast!"

Have a great time.

Love it! I hope our girls' future boyfriends have to pass the Aunt Jodi and Uncle Ryan test as well. As always, the future is safely in God's hands.

Like you, I don't think I will quit worrying about Rhys's size any time soon. My biggest concern with him eating right now is our attempt to prevent the potential of the dreaded growth hormones. I am selfish in that I do not want to be faced with having to make that decision. I feel like preemies have so much more attention on weight and height, where their term baby counterparts are left alone. As so many others have pointed out, who is to say what size Olivia or Rhys would have been if they'd not been so premature? I have a 3-yr old nephew who is only about 28 pounds. Will anyone ever recommend growth hormones for him? Nope! Anyway, I think as long as our babes are growing developmentally, and are healthy and happy we should consider our efforts a success! Y'all have a great 4th celebration. We are currently under a burn ban, restricted waters, etc, so I doubt anyone will have the festive fireworks that are an annual staple around here.
