Avri (20+ months): Starting to talk more. Knows several animal sounds. LOVES her baby and taking care of her. Weighs 18 pounds and is wearing 12-18 month clothing. Arthritis is getting better, but she isn't progressing as quickly as the doctors have hoped. They are increasing her methatrexate dosage, and Kurt will have to start giving her injections once a week instead of crushing up pills. :( She is losing some of the muscle in one of her legs because of the way she compensates when she walks. She'll have to undergo some physical therapy once the arthritis is under control.
Kelsie (5): Attending Kreative Kids preschool and loving it. Just started playing soccer and seems to be enjoying it. She is naturally pretty athletic. Loves playing dress up, singing, my little ponies, and barbies. Pretty typical girl.
