Now we are six

According to Jeremiah we weren't a "proper" family of 6 until Ezekiel came home.  He came home on Monday and it's been so lovely being home with all 4 of them together.  He is still struggling with weight gain and still very sleepy and floppy.  But he is home and that's something to celebrate.

Jeremiah turned 7 yesterday.  My biggest rainbow baby is looking very grown up these days, with 2 of his baby teeth gone, an obsession with lego and beginning to favour star wars over Thomas the tank engine.

How tiny I thought he was then but also how huge he was compared with Ezekiel.

and last week, with Ezekiel

Last week was sports day for Jeremiah and Isaac.  I must admit I was dreading it when Isaac said he was doing a running race, remembering my own sports day humiliations but the school handled everything really well.  Isaac and the other children who have mobility problems were given a head start, in fact Isaac started half way down the track.  Isaac came joint 3rd out of 4 in his race.  Jeremiah was in the relay and his team came 3rd out of 4 so they are both the very proud owners of a bronze medal each.
