We're Back!!!!

Hello Again!   It's been a long time since we've posted (over three years), but we really want to pick things up again!    We feel very blessed to say that Lauren, Maggie, Reese, and Gavin continue to be wonderful, healthy children.   We look forward to documenting their/our life through our blog.....again!  The pictures below are a few of the memories we've created this summer.

Long Over Due!!

We have had a wonderful month!! I am so sorry it has been sooo long for an update!! We had a couple of nice days last week so we went outside!! YAY!! It was so nice to get the babies out of the house!! Here we are enjoying the outdoors.

Here is our out door play area. I have to say the day before I tried to let them do their own thing in the front yard. They were everywhere. It was like fireworks. Maggie went to eat the neighbors rocks, Lauren went to eat the other neighbors mulch, Gavin headed for the street and Reese went to ride her car. I talked with a neighbor and the next day, they played in the "jail".

1st Birthday!!!

We had the best day on Saturday! We celebrated the quads birthday with our families and it was so special!! We can not believe how time flys ( I know everyone says that but it is sooo true!!) I was Dr. Marshall's today for their one year check ups (I only take two at a time otherwise it is just to much for me to be able to really focus on each baby) and we were talking about how blessed we are! I look at these babies and can not believe how well things have turned out. We give God the glory every single day!!!! The only thing Dr. Marshall mentioned was Lauren's weight. She wants her to gain a pound this month. I know that does not sound like much, but the month before she only gained an ounce. Other than that, they look great!!!

Current Stats:

Gavin: 19 lbs 7 oz. 29 1/2 inches

Reese: 18 lbs. 7oz. 29 1/2 inches
( I don't think this is right because she is def. not the same as Gav and Maggie)
Maggie: 19 lbs 6 oz. 29 1/4 inches

Lauren: 14 lbs 27 inches.

We have a ton of birthday pics. We had to capture every moment!!!! The theme was "Our sweathearts are turning one" I can't say that Jon loved it but they are only one and do not know the difference.

Lauren is doing great!!! She just started crawling about a week ago and she is everywhere!!! I love it because now she can follow her siblings everywhere and she does!!! It is so sweet to see this little 13. 8 lbs crawling so fast. She def. has her own personality. She lets people know what she wants!
