The Michaels' Quads

Well everything is status quo here in Champaign.

Gavin - 3lbs 2 oz. Doing really well!
Maggie - 2lbs 8 oz. Doing really well!
Lauren - Stable from last blog. They think her PDA may have a slight opening still. We are waiting to hear what the doctor thinks tomorrow. Numbers aren't as high as last time and could require medication if anything at all. She is up in weight. Yeah! 1lbs 12 oz.
Reese - has some bouts with apnea, but otherwise doing well. 2 lbs 8 oz.

Reese and Maggie are just so much alike.......

...that they've become roomies! ...and from time to time roomies must share!

I'm a little biased, but it's got to be the cutest thing you've ever seen!

We continue to ask for your prayers for all the quads, especially Lauren! We have met a wonderful couple here in Champaign, Dave and Helen Leverton. Their son Austin is going through very similar phases as Lauren. Please pray for them as well. I know there are a lot of prayer warriors our there and we appreciate you very much!

Here are a couple of the prayer quilts from 2nd Presbyterian Church. We love them and what they represent!

Maggie and Reese snuggled up together and snuggled up with Tiff is the most darling thing I've ever seen! Absolutely precious. So happy to hear how the babies are growing, and way to grow baby Lauren! I'm so proud of her! You all continue to be in our prayers everyday. We're thinking of you now especially as you head home. We'd love to come see you.

We love you, all 6 of you!

Sooo cute! I love the pics of the "roomies" sweet! Also Tiff you just look like such a natural in all the photos (you too Jon), not that I would've expected any less. You also look so good for just having these babies (again you too Jon :)) You all continue to be in our prayers and we are more than happy to include Austin! XOXO-Busing

I can't believe that you are commuting!! I drive have the distacne to school and it gets old. The secretary at my school asked if there is a Mariott nearby because she had a sister-in-law that could probably get you a room for nothing or next to nothing. If you want me to try and pull some strings, let me know.

I know the commute will not be the best but we will add better weather to our prayers for your family!!! At least some sunshine and windows down may help:)
I want you to know your family is beautiful and doing wonderful b/c your babies are surrounded by your love!!! We will continue to pray for each and every one of you.
