I did promise to upload more video of the boys' party, so here is just one of the kids dancing and having fun. It's kind of a chaotic clip with kids running in and out, but you can see some of their dance moves. Mairead is yelling, "C'mon everyone!" while spinning into everyone around her. They definitely had fun!
The boys had their 12 month visit to the doctor last week and she was very happy to see that they are doing well. She is pleased that they are growing bigger and stronger and she thinks they look great. They are still on the small side (25th percentile for height and weight), but healthy just the same.
Jack weighs 21lbs 5 oz and is 28 1/2 inches tall. Ben is the exact same height, but weighs 12 oz more at 22lbs even.
She did recommend that we have a cardiologist follow up on Ben's heart murmur, but she is confident it is nothing to worry about. We will go to Children's Hospital for that on April 1.
Speaking of Children's, we did finally get an appointment for Mairead, but it is not until June 1. The specialist she needs to see has quite the waiting list, so we will just have to be patient. She will start receiving different services through Early Intervention this week, so we are looking forward to helping her that way.
Thanks to all of you who have posted words of encouragement here on the blog or who have sent us encouraging emails. We truly appreciate the support you provide for us and our little girl. And Jack and Ben, too!
