Parenting after a Loss

BPF: 12w (twins) + updates

It's hard to believe the boys are 12w old already. I remember their scary birth like it was yesterday. We saw the orthopedist last week who confirmed our pedi's diagnosis for Silas' foot. It was squished in the womb but his tendons will tighten up as he ages and his foot should turn back in to be a normal position.

Sawyer rolled over in his crib yesterday! Twice! It was such a shock I almost thought I'd put him down that way on accident but then he did it again!

They've both finally started social smiles and Silas will giggle! While I think we may be ramping up into  growth spurt this weeks milestones have been fun!

This was Father's day technically.

Silas giggled until he passed out. It was hilarious.

  • So cute!! I love looking BPFs -- especially of the little little ones!! It all goes so fast -- I barely remember DS when he was 12 weeks -- and he's only 11 months!! Soak up every second -- they are some darling little boys you have!!!

    ETA:  Not sure of the backstory on Silas' foot, but DS's foot always curled inward in the beginning.. I had talked to our ped (though we didn't see a specialist), and she just said that it was probably positioned that way in utero, so that's how he's comfortable holding it.. We just made an effort to make sure whenever we stood him to straighten it.. and then around 4-5 months when we started putting him in his jumperoo, I'd sit and just correct it so that he got used to holding it straight and not curled in.. that worked for us as we don't ever see him curling it anymore!  Good luck :)
