We got a new septic system put in about a week ago and it turns out that our house has two waste disposal lines coming out of it. The crew only hooked up one to the new septic system so we had nasty sewage water back up everywhere. The basement storage room was a nasty, wet mess when we found the problem. Thankfully we can still use one bathroom which got hooked up to the new system. I did the dishes in the bathroom sink and had to take all of my wet towels over to my mom's.  Audrey seems to be doing worse again. Sometimes she is having trouble eating and is super gassy. She gets up about every 1-2 hours each night.

4 months

The girls had their 4 month well checks on Wednesday. Ellie was 14 lbs. 11 oz. and 24.75 inches. Audrey was 14 lbs. and 25.5 inches. They are both doing good. Ellie has rolled over from her tummy to back, blows raspberries, plays with toys and is ok spending time on her tummy. Audrey is trying to roll over, coos and laughs a lot, plays with toys, and is able to lift her head 45 degrees off the floor. They are both wearing 6 month clothes and size 2 diapers. Audrey got evaluated by the county early ed program with will receive services to help with her torticollis.

Audrey's neck is getting stronger!  It was a rough night last night, especially for Tate. He has developed a fear of pooping and hadn't gone for about a week and woke up crying with a tummy ache. So, we gave him a suppository in the middle of the night.  He also got up around 5 to potty and couldn't go back to sleep. He took a three hour nap. We finally flew his kite from Easter for the first time and it was a hit. Ellie cried with each bottle she ate today.

Ellie sometimes has a hard time eating because she is too busy smiling. I gave her some special snuggles.

We got two new cats on Sunday. Tate decided to call them Nice Cat and Scaredy Cat. We let them out of the cage to run around and Tate loved it.  He carried Nice Cat all over the yard. The cat eventually went into hiding and Tate cried and cried at bedtime because he was worried about him.
