1st Birthday!!!

We had the best day on Saturday! We celebrated the quads birthday with our families and it was so special!! We can not believe how time flys ( I know everyone says that but it is sooo true!!) I was Dr. Marshall's today for their one year check ups (I only take two at a time otherwise it is just to much for me to be able to really focus on each baby) and we were talking about how blessed we are! I look at these babies and can not believe how well things have turned out. We give God the glory every single day!!!! The only thing Dr. Marshall mentioned was Lauren's weight. She wants her to gain a pound this month. I know that does not sound like much, but the month before she only gained an ounce. Other than that, they look great!!!

Current Stats:

Gavin: 19 lbs 7 oz. 29 1/2 inches

Reese: 18 lbs. 7oz. 29 1/2 inches
( I don't think this is right because she is def. not the same as Gav and Maggie)
Maggie: 19 lbs 6 oz. 29 1/4 inches

Lauren: 14 lbs 27 inches.

We have a ton of birthday pics. We had to capture every moment!!!! The theme was "Our sweathearts are turning one" I can't say that Jon loved it but they are only one and do not know the difference.

Look at all of our presents. I think we are a little spoiled!!

What a great party! I know Jon really thought of the theme, it's ok to admit it :) Don't worry about Lauren's weight. We went through the same with Ainsley because in 2 mos. she only gained a few oz, but lucky her she gets to eat whatever she wants when she wants. I'm sure Lauren is always busy, like Anisley, so it makes it hard to keep weight on. They are all so adorable...and a little spoiled with those presents, but when you are that darn cute who wouldn't want to spoil you? Can't wait to see you all again soon! XOXO to the babies!

I had to laugh out loud when I saw that picture of Reese just looking at the camera like you were crazy! She was in no mood to smile, obviously! Oh are right, look at all those gifts! I can't imagine what Christmas will really be like next year at your house!

Hi Tiffany!! So Im the other multiple Mommy here in town that Doreen was talking about. :) If you want to send me an email, maybe we can chat, and see about getting together this month for a play date or something! Ive been following your blog since you had the quads. Dr. Jarrett was my doctor too. Small world, remember me from the BHS football game? I work at the place where the daycare LOVES to eat at. With those yummy dream bars. :)

Congratulations on the big milestone of 1st Birthday! Your babies are beautiful. I feel a special bond following your blog because my husband is from Bloomington also and I lived there for 4 years. Have a lot of great friends there. Now, I'm 30 wks with our quads. We're getting close. Anyday could be the day. I have been very encouraged following you, and pray that our babies are healthy like yours. God Bless!
