Cadence's 1 year anniversary and Preemie Awareness Day!

It's been a year since Cadence Rose has been home! Cadence is such a funny, strong willed, smart, sassy, and loveable baby! At 15 months, 12 adjusted, she weighs 17lbs (she was 1lb13oz at birth). She has been walking for a few weeks and says mama and dada. She loves when I read to her and her monkey stuffed animal. She had such an infectious laugh and is so full of personality! Today is also World Prematurity Awareness Day, which is near and dear to my heart. I'm so proud of where Cadence is today and of her brother and sister! Here are some recent pictures of Cadence. 

And Mary said: “My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he has been mindful of the humble state of his servant.  From now on all generations will call me blessed.”  (Luke 1:46-48)

The 1st anniversary of Jude's homecoming was yesterday!

It's been a year since Jude Joseph has been home! Of all three babies, Jude is the one that amazes me the most with his progress and development. At 15 months/12 adjusted, he crawls, pulls to stand and cruises, babbles mama and dadda, self feeds (and boy, oh boy, can this boy eat!) walks with the walker, and sleeps through the night, and drinks out of a sippy cup very well. Of all three babies, he naps the best and just loves to sleep! From a tiny 1lb13oz, 13in long baby at birth, to a 19lbs and is 29 3/4in long, this boy is so amazing. He is still on nexium for his reflux, which has improved but is still present some days (unfortunately, because it causes pain). But, if you give him his binkie (which he is thoroughly addicted to), it helps a lot. Here are some pictures of my handsome miracle baby.

And the child grew and became strong; he was filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was on him.  (Luke 2:40)

1 Year Adjusted Birthday!

Today is a big day for the Burrows Triplets- they hit their 1 Year Adjusted birthday, which means if they would have been born on their due date, then they would be a year old (puts it into perspective how early they were- 3 months and 4 days, 96 days, 13 weeks and 5 days). They are REAL living miracles! They are following exactly what they should be doing if they were to be a year old. Cadence started walking 9 days ago, and Aria and Jude are right behind her and are master crawlers. They eat solid food like champs (I did baby-led weaning with them and they are completely off purees), they drink whole milk now instead of formula, and are very good sleepers and nappers (yay, finally on a solid schedule!) We got the good news that the babies will receive synagist for rsv for the months of November and December. It lifts a huge weight since they are still at risk for getting very ill from it if they get it. Aria is only 14lbs8oz so she is particularly at risk. Cadence is almost 17lbs and Jude is19lbs. They are growing but are still small, even for their adjusted age. They are doing so well though and we had a great Halloween! Noah was the Big Bas Wolf and the triplets were the 3 Little Pigs! Here is to many, many more happy memories and cute coordinating costumes :)

Psalm 16:11
 You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
