What a 48 Hours!!

Things have been happening around here!!! We are so excited because the quads have reached some huge milestones!!!!

1. LAUREN IS ROLLING OVER!!! She can roll over her right and left sides. She can also get her legs up from underneath her to begin crawling!! Yay!!

2. Gavin started crawling, actually army crawling. Reese smiled at him so he decided to go toward her to grab her face, but much to his surprise she got him! He turned right around. It was so funny!!

3. Maggie and Gavin have become great eaters. They started off pushing their tongues out but now can't wait to eat!

4. Reese is talking up a storm. She has such an outgoing personality!!!

This video shows everyone in action!!!

Have a great weekend!! Jon and I are going on another date night!! Aunt Kassie and Uncle Clint are going to babysit!!!

Lauren started wheezing last week so we took her to Dr. Marshall. Everything looked great (of course I was totally thinking RSV) she just put her on a nebulizer, as needed. We started at four times a day. Lauren does awesome with it!! She is such a trooper!

I love playing on the floor with my babies!

We had our very own pumpkin patch!!! It was so nice here, Jon and I were able to take the babies outside for a wagon ride. They LOVED it!!!! We had our own little Halloween party with both sets of grandparents, Aunt Kassie, Great Aunt Ginny and our friend Kori Gettel!!! We had so much help Jon and I were able to have a date night while Grandma and Grandpa Samuels, Aunt Kassie and Gettel put the babies to bed. Thanks guys!!!

Jon in the backyard pulling the little pumpkins all around for their first Halloween!!! The wagon was a gift from the Broach's, our babies love to ride in it!!!!

Maggie fell asleep on Gavin during the ride.

This is Gavin at the end of the evening. It is so hard to be the big brother!!

Reese enjoying her time!!

I love this picture with Gavin's arm around Maggie while she is taking a quick nap on his shoulder.

Jon and I with our four little pumpkins!! They look so excited:)
