Thank you. I liked seeing William coming out of you feet first. Hope all are well.

William spent 7 weeks in the hospital re-learning to eat, and has been diagnosed CP to what extent we won't know till he's older. He's getting pumped milk in a bottle as he's not able to latch, we hope with all the therapy he's getting we'll be able to latch him in the future. We're thankful he was able to come home without a feeding tube.

I can't see it... I don't know why... but I'm sure it's awesome.

My oldest son has CP, we didn't have a diagnosis (or services b/c of that) until he was 2 years old. He is doing really well (he's almost 6 now). It was AMAZING the effect that therapy had on his eating, walking, talking, etc. Some of his brain re-wired to adapt and it was incredible to watch it in action. Not a fast thing by any measure, but I'm a believer of "services before 3 yrs. old" for that reason... it really helped us!!

Best wishes...

Mama to 4 amazing little people, another little expected 3/6/12!

If you can't view the photos on firefox (or a different brower) try explorer, that worked for me.

Beautiful photos/song together, I'm glad your little ones are doing well now!

The photos are incredible! Makes me want to have another baby (or twins) and capture it all with pictures...I'm sure you never tire of looking at them...although I'm sure having those adorable babies in real life is even more amazing!

Congratulations. My favourite picture was the one where we see your hands and the back of your baby's head as he's nursing.
