As usual, things are busy in the World of Weeks.
The girls both had orthodontist visits.
Naomi got a mold taken of her mouth so they can make her an expander. She just doesn’t have enough room for her teeth to come in. Hopefully this will prevent the need for braces, although it’s more likely that it will simply reduce the amount of time she’ll need to wear braces, which won’t be needed for a few more years. She still has several teeth to lose.
Lili, on the other hand, did get braces on her top teeth. She’s had minimal problems and is taking very good care of her teeth so far. She will only need to wear them 12-16 months.
Little Bit is growing and changing daily. She is really working hard on holding her head up and is beginning to use her legs more. She is not fond of tummy time, but she needs to work on those core muscles.
She is no long swimming in the newborn outfits. In fact, she fills them out quite nicely. It won’t be long until they will be put away and saved for other foster babies we might have in the future.
We took a trip to a local farm with our homeschool co-op. The girls fed a long-horn bull, cows, calves, llama, goats, rabbits and chicken. We were entertained by the llama chasing the calves. We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day on the farm.
We’re beginning to gear up for the holidays now. It’s hard to believe that Christmas is only 8 weeks away. Seems like not so long ago we were opening Christmas presents and now we’re planning again.
