Finally getting better

It seems like the babies are starting to feel better. They are finally eating well and sleeping a little better, they are being much more playful and are acting like themselves. It seems like they have been sick all winter. I guess that is the downside of day care. Luckily our neonatologist that comes for home visits and gives them the Synergist shot got them approved for one more shot so they have the RSV protection for the rest of this season. I wish they would be eligible next year but they won't be because they have been too healthy. How can anyone be too healthy?

At the home visit on Thursday we got the babies latest stats:

15 lbs 10 oz
26.5" long
17" head circumference

19 lbs
27.75" long
18" head circumference

13 lbs 3 oz
25" long
16.5" head circumference

16 lbs 4 oz
26.5" long
17.5" head circumference

We are talking about switching a couple of them over to rear facing convertible car seats. I am having a hard time carrying Brady and his seat up and down the stairs to get in and out of the house all the time. It will be quite awhile before Aubrey will be in a big seat thankfully because we wouldn't be able to get past a rear facing car seat to get into the third row of the van. It is going to be quite the Olympic event trying to get back there to strap them in anyway.

We put them in our new quad stroller for the first time last weekend and they seemed to love it! I love the fact that I can take them out for a walk alone if Ben isn't home or he is busy. The babies are liking the warmer weather and taking walks, they look around at all the scenery and the fresh air seems to make them sleep a little better too.

It is so hard to believe that the babies will be 6 months next week. They are doing new things all the time. Blowing raspberries and chewing on their fingers are the games of the week so we almost always have bibs on them to keep them from drooling on their clothes. All of the boys are able to sit up by themselves for a few seconds at a time and Aubrey either doesn't have the desire to or can't yet. She thinks a Princess doesn't have to do anything she doesn't want to! They all have tickle spots and different toys that make them laugh. Coming soon...we will be feeding them cereal next week for the first time so I will be posting pictures of their first time eating cereal!

We've been FLOCKED!

Nine years ago this summer there was so much uncertainty, would Ben make it through his treatments?  Would I be able to carry all four babi...
