Since I wrote my miserable commentary the other day things have been getting a little better around the Hakes home. We have a wonderful nanny who comes in every morning and just helps me out until noon. She takes Harmon on long walks and plays with him in the back yard. This has really helped b/c this was the special attention I always gave Harmon before I was hospitalized. Harmon still wants to be the baby... he sneaks into the crib and sits in his old car seat every chance he gets BUT he is learning to be gentle and like his new siblings.
Today has been the best day though! Today Harmon learned the word "NO!" For those who know Harmon know he is a very very bright boy but doesn't say a word. He has been in speech therapy for a while now but it hasn't produced a lot of results. Today though he started answering my questions and comments.
- Harmon say goodbye to Miriam (our nanny who he loves and hates when she leaves)... "NO".
- Harmon would you like to take a nap? "No" and than he ran away from me :p
As for the cupcakes they are doing great. Rachel has a bit of colic but I think she will be okay. I'm hoping we will be able to get off the special formula real soon since they are gaining weight so well. Also hopefully it will be gentler on her tummy.
Callum is the pimp daddy of the group. He is very well behaved and just eats, sleeps, and plays. He is starting to remind me of his cousin Troy with the chubby little cheeks. Rachel is just our little string bean still... hopefully she will fatten up soon. Right now she has the most gorgeous blue eyes and when she is happy she has the prettiest little smile. No doubt about it... I've got 3 very different but VERY cute little kids ;)
