The babies have been turning into big kids before our very eyes this week! What happened to the little midgets who had heads that fit in the palm of my hand? It makes me sad to realize those days are gone forever and I will never get to experience infancy again. :(

Matthew has decided that he can get everywhere by CRAWLING!!! He does get on all fours and crawl a foot or so then he decides that it is quicker to army crawl. He loves that he can find Daddy whenever he wants to! He is up to 3 teeth now, 1 on top and 2 on the bottom.

Brady thinks he is the coolest because he stands up and the others can't. He just looks at them and says "haha" then usually falls over because he is too busy teasing to pay attention. He has two teeth on the bottom now.

Aubrey still is toothless and is trying to crawl with little success. She loves when we sing the Elmo song to her and she repeats the "la la la la" when we sing it. It is so cute!

Cameron is the leader of the tooth race with 4 and one on the way, 2 on top and 2 on bottom. He watches Brady pull himself up and tries to follow suit by grabbing the couch cushion and looking at it like "why aren't you standing me up?"

The are trying more and more table food and doing well with it. I think the transition to having regular meals with us should be easy in another month or so. They are all bug fans of straws so I ordered some new spill proof straw cups to give them at meal time hopefully eliminating all but the bedtime bottle within the next few weeks.

We spent the past 2 days at Moose Hillock Campground with Uncle Tom and Auntie Kate. They slept great and were so well behaved. Swimming was fun! They loved the water in their floats but enjoyed it way more when they were being held. Everyone there kept asking if they were quads and the other usual questions. I was able to swim since my wrist is making a great recovery so I had the stitches out and got a removable splint. I still can't lift the babies or do anything with my hand until I start therapy in a couple weeks.

Ben had his 3 month check and everything still looks good so he has one more 3 month check then he goes onto 6 months checks. He has been cleared to work part time with no more than 2 consecutive hours sitting or standing.


  1. Oh my gosh, you have one STANDING?! They're getting so big.

    I always sing Elmo's song to Lyla, too, but change it to "Lyla's Song". =)

  2. I do the same Alyssa! We sing all sorts of songs where we change the words to have thier names in it.

  3. What big changes they are making. WTG kiddos. I still don't know how you are doing all that without being able to pick up the babies. I hope Ben is keeping up. Post some new pics when you can.


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...
