(A) Gavin Christopher (2 lbs 13 oz) 10:29 p.m.

How wonderful!!! The girls were especially jazzed at school today when they heard that you chose the names Lauren and Reese (Sydney's middle name). I'm almost speechless about the wonder of all of this.

We're just so very happy for you and hope your NICU experience is just as short and healthy for those little ones as possible.

Hugs - Melissa, Scott, Lauren & Sydney Casey

I'm so glad everyone and everything is going well. It would have been interesting if the babies were born next week (02-29) and then the quads would have birthdays every four years!

The Crowe Family said...

Our prayers certainly continued to be answered... and they won't stop! Our God is so amazing - bringing you, Tiff, through this pregnancy with such an amazing attitude and for giving Jon the strength and peace that passes all understanding. We are so grateful!

Welcome to Gavin, Maggie, Reese, and Lauren. The prayers continue from Colorado!

We love you all,

Hi to the Michaels'
From Rockford, IL
I am so happy to hear your story and that you have 4 new family members. What a huge blessing to Jon and Tiff, but also your family and friends.

I am a dear friend of Christina Vance and I have had the pleasure of knowing her for about over 20 years. I saw your blog on her blog and started finding out about you both.

I have a 2 year old boy, Preston and he was a premie and stayed in NICU for 10 day. It was hard to leave him behind every night, but I am so glad he had some great doctors and nurses. I will continue my many prayers for your family and can't wait for updates on your blog. Please take care of yourselfs and your babies. With love Lisa Swanson
