Growing Babies

This girl, as always, has finally grown again after being back on oxygen full time… this morning she weighed in at a whopping 16 pounds!  Once again, skirted passed a gtube by 4 ounces 2 days before the cutoff.  This girl!

We went to the elementary school this afternoon to enroll these two cuties in pre-K!

How did THAT happen?!

They are so excited, and I am stunned that my babies are ready to be big kids!


Then we came to Tulsa tonight to pick up Mary! We were all so excited to see her! She was especially glad to see us!

Now we are at dinner, with big kids who can choose their own pizza!

And baby sign language flying as Mary teaches them all the signs I have showed them for three years, except now it is cool, and now they understand they don’t have to voice and sign. Mary prayed her first prayer in sign language, told us of all (most) of her adventures, and was most excited to show them how to sign “trash can”.

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
