Our first outing

Yesterday all the kids had pediatrician appointments in St. Johnsbury and amazingly we made it there on time! It was quite a chore getting 4 babies ready and loaded into the car thankfully we had my mom here to help. The doctor checked them all over and confirmed that they are perfect, LOL! Cameron's hernia incision looked perfect so he didn't have to go with me and Aubrey to Dartmouth today. They are all growing so quickly their latest stats are:

Matthew 6 lbs 11 oz
Brady 7 lbs 11oz
Aubrey 5 lbs 4 oz
Cameron 5 lbs 12oz

After the pediatrician we went to Walmart and everyone looked like it was some sort of circus show at all the babies in the strollers. Luckily everyone kept a look but don't touch approach in the check out line but 3 registers closed down to come take a peek at the babies.

Today my dad, Aubrey and I went to Dartmouth for her eye exam while the boys stayed home with Ben, my mom and Marlene. Aubrey did great on the ride and did better at her eye exam than I did. As soon as she started crying so did I, I hated seeing her eyes clamped open and her uncomfortable. The good news is that her eyes are getting to the mature stage and they don't think she will need any sort of surgery but she gets rechecked in 2 weeks.


  1. GREAT news, and holy cow little Brady is a BIG boy!!! So glad everything is well, thanks for the update:)

  2. Wow, the kiddos are growing just perfectly. And Cameron must be chowing down on the milk, Mr. Big boy.

    It is so hard to watch the babies get examined, get shots, etc. It is almost worse on mom then it is on the babies. You are doing great.

  3. Sounds like it was a great day! I'm amazed by how big they are already!! Micah was 5 lbs 14 ozs at birth, and at 6 weeks, he was still only 7 lbs. Your babies are growing WELL!! - Tkeys

  4. WOW! I'm so happy to hear all of the great news! To cute on those registers shutting down though! I can't believe how well they are growing!

  5. awww they are growing quick!!!! I'm so glad you had a great first outing! I hope all goes well with Aubrey's re-check - I'm sure it will!

    Sounds like you guys are living a wonderful life! Congrats!!! :)
