Gavin Graduates To A Crib

We are so excited that Gavin is in a crib. He is such a big boy:) Jon and I can now pick him up and love on him anytime we want. It just makes it so real. The only thing left for Gav is to eat on his own, then he is ready to come home!! Eating can take weeks to learn, he will start trying the bottle at 33 weeks. Now that he is in a crib he can wear big boy clothes!!

Here is Jon and I holding Gavin!

Maggie and Reese are doing well! They are being held for the first time like big girls by their daddy:)

Sweet Lauren is still doing great on her ventilator. She continues to stay on the lowest settings. We just pray for her lungs to develop, that she continues to get bigger and stronger.
Tonight Jon and I were visiting the quads and I went to say goodnight to Maggie and Reese and in their bed was a gift to mommy. I was so surprised! The babies decided to get me a ring with their birthstones in it (which is amethyst). I just love it!!! It has four amethysts representing each of our little blessings. I bet it was Lauren's idea:)

WooHoo! Way to go, Gavin! Time to get that boy some cutie preemie outfits :)
Prepare yourself.... it might not take him too long to take 8 of 8 bottles. And then he'll be home.
Gavin needs to whisper some tips into Lauren's ears - Owen had to do the same thing to Molly. She'll catch up soon - she just needs a little more time.
Your girls are always going to have a strong brother!
Such a great weekend! Love, Jessica and Benjie

Oh my goodness! Tears of joy are flowin' as I read this post this morning! Between seeing Gavin in his big boy crib and looking adorable in a little sleeper, and seeing the joy in your eyes as you both hold him, and seeing Jon hold both Maggie and Reese together, hearing that Lauren is staying strong, all with Rascal Flatts playing in the background - oh my goodness! Praise God for all of these updates. So glad to hear how everyone is doing. The ring sounds beautiful - what thoughtful little babies you have! :-) We're praying for you all and think about you often throughout each day.

We love you and we're so grateful for the news!

Christina, Patrick, Henry and William

Wow! I had been worried all month because we didn't know whether you delivered. Finally I called your Mom's friend Judy to see if all was well and she told me the wonderful news. You will be great parents! We are so happy for everyone.

What a champ little Gavin is! I love the photo of him...what a little man. And the one with Jon and the girls is darling too! I know it was little Lauren's idea for the Mommy gift...she's so thoughtful like that! We continue to pray for the growth and strength! XOXO-Busings
