Update on Lauren!

God is good! Lauren's Payton Duct (PDA) closed! Thank you for the prayers everyone! They are being answered! I'll update this post later, but just had to share the news with family and friends.

Tiff held Maggie and I held Gavin for the first time yesterday. Gavin and I took an hour nap:) Talk about being at peace with the world! I'll try to post our pictures later today. I'm debating if I want my harry chest plastered over the web. I have a few best buds who would have a field day with that one (Matt R ;)

Love you guys!

Be darned with your friends ribbing - kangarooing is the best thing in the world for those little babies! Hairy chest and all! Again, even though I know you only through the SF grapevine - prayers, prayers, and more prayers from this family of multiples to yours!

I just got on your website for the first time this morning, and I'm glad to get the update already this evening. Praise God for what he is doing for your new family! Best wishes to all of you, and we'll keep you in our prayers.

Hi Tiffany and Jon! I've been checking out your site daily since my mom told me about your blog. Hanni and I are so thrilled for you and have sent many prayers your way. I love all the pics and hope to get to see your beautiful family when I make it back to the Midwest this summer!

Love,

Once you have children you develop "dad hair." And since you have four you are destined to be very hairy in odd places...ears, back, and nose.

Glad to hear everything is going well. See you when we get back from Florida.

Oh my goodness!! What great news! I'm thrilled that Lauren's PDA closed! That is just such great news. I'm so happy that everyone is doing so well. Isn't sleeping with a newborn curled up on your chest the best sleep in the world? There's just something about holding those little babies close that will knock you out everytime.

We're thinking of you guys and praying for all 6 of you everyday.

We love you!
Christina, Patrick, Henry and William

Hey there guys, I am so happy that Lauren's PDA closed on its own and no surgery was needed. I continue to pray for great health for all of you and enjoy all the updates. It brings tears of happieness everytime I read a new blog. I know it is the pregnancy hormones but I love it :).
Hope you are enjoying your new temp house and blow kisses to all those babies for me.

Much Love,

Hi Jon and Tiff:

Jon, so glad you and Gavin are bonding. You'll need to get away and spend some "guy" time in the future (maybe tennis!!) living with 4 females....while all of the cheerleading is going on! Yea, for little Lauren, we'll keep the prayers coming for all 6 of you.

Love you all, Becky

Congratulations on your quads. They are precious. Enjoy every minute. Ours are 2 months old now and I can't believe how fast time is going by. Our prayers go up to you and your family. We'll keep in touch with your blog and your progress. Jenn - Momma of the herd
