Gummy Bear Grins


I was able to catch all four babies today smiling with their big gummy bear grins. These are some of the cutest pics of the babies that I have taken lately. Hope you enjoy them.

Boppy pillow sleeping

For some strange reason the babies have their own way they think they should sleep in the boppy pillows. It cracks us up, know matter how many times you put them in there correctly, they still find their own way to lay. Cooper and Ella are practicing their diving technique. Casen is just hiding hoping know one sees him. And Cole well, he seems to get it right in the boppy.

Cole seems to be the only one who seems to have it right

Let FREEDOM ring

After much debate and a out of the blue phone call. Jeremy and I purchased a new stroller for the quads. Technically it was for me. It lets me get out with all four babies by myself. Thats right I no longer have to wait for someone to come over and go with me. I had read where a quad mom had purchased this, and she loved it. So I emailed her to get the pros and cons. After all of her great info, we decided to go ahead and make the purchase. Lucky for us someone sold it to us second hand so it didn't cost us near as much as it could have. Yes, we are still in search of the runabout for the quads, but we are holding out in hopes that someone will be selling one, and we can get that second hand as well.

I took the babies out for a quick walk around the block so you have to forgive me and my fine Texas heat hair do, but I was just so happy to get out. And yes the babies love it. Thank goodness. We did have to put a head rest for Ella and Cole to use since the front seats don't recline as far back as the back seats do.

Cereal Anyone?

Ok so I got a great idea to try and spoon feed the babies cereal. (yeah right) What was I thinking? It started off a great idea, until the actual feeding began. As you can see from the pics, the babies were wearing more than they ate. Lets not forget to mention Casen screamed through it all, as if someone was torturing him. Poor baby. I have since learned maybe they just weren't ready for it. Sorry guys mommy is still learning.

Cooper "O know here comes that spoon again"

Ella" Hold up, I have had enough"

Cole "I just can't take anymore of this"

Casen" This is horrible make her stop"

Casen"Hmm she wonders why I am screaming, it's
not the cereal, it is the fact that I am in my

visit from Great Grandpa (papaw)

My Papaw and Gammy came to see the babies. They were so excited to see them, since they hadn't been able to see them since they were in the NICU. It is very hard for my grandfather to get around. We had a really good visit and Papaw said" let me hold all these babies" So here is a couple of pics with him and Gammy and the babies, and one with older brother Haiden.

I love you so much Papaw!
