Sorry for the lack of updates last week. Eli's week started off rough when Landon "helped" him off the porch and he skinned his face.

That same night, I was at the hospital having a non-stress test done and I get a text from Dustin that says, "I'm pretty sure Landon just broke Eli's nose." Dustin had cleaned most of the blood up before I got home, but there were still drops of blood all over my kitchen floor. Poor little Eli. His nose never swelled or bruised, so I don't think it was broken after all. Then... Dustin, Eli, and Landon all had some sort of stomach bug, but thankfully I managed to avoid it somehow. I went to Lubbock Thursday for my weekly appointment and Friday we spent the day in Abilene shopping, eating, going to the doctor, and visiting the zoo. We needed some fun after that long week. We haven't been to the zoo in a really long time and it was fun to see Eli and Landon soak it all up and get excited about all of the animals they recognized.

My appointment Thursday was okay. Harper still isn't growing as quickly as we'd like. She is 3 lbs, 6 oz. and in the 6th percentile now. Dr. Atkinson said that while her growth isn't what it should be, if we look at the big picture, she really looks great. All of the monitoring I've been doing (twice a week) looks great. Her fluid looks good, her blood flow looks good, she's very active, and her heart rate is always very consistent. Overall...she looks good. She's just really small. I was SO relieved that he didn't put me in the hospital to watch her any closer than we already are.

(33 weeks)

Yesterday marked the exact day in my pregnancy (by gestational age) that Eli and Landon were born. 33 weeks and 3 days. Eli was born at 3 lbs, 4 oz., so Harper is already bigger than he was at this time. Hopefully we can make it another four weeks!

Here are a few pictures of Eli and Landon:

Eli (successfully) dressed himself this day.

This has always been Eli and Landon's favorite spot in the yard. There's a little hole in the fence and they LOVE to stick things through there and terrorize the neighbor's dog. It's really quite annoying as that dumb dog barks like crazy at them. They laugh and think it's hilarious.

Sweet Landon
