10 Months Old

The kids are now 10 months old. 2 More months until they are a a year old. I can't stand it! They are growing way too fast. I weighed them and measured them all, so it is not official, but I think we're close. Lily weighs 20lbs. and is 30 inches long. What a big girl, huh? No wonder it is taking so long for her to crawl. She has a lot of weight to carry around. She is still doing the army crawl, but is up on all fours rocking.

Sarah weighs 16 lbs. and is 27 inches long. She is finally up on all fours and rocking. She is still trying to sit up all the time though. Those abs must be like steel. She seems to get frustrated very easily when she cannot do something. She has started to feed herself though. She gets mad when you don't let her help with the spoon.

Ava is starting to catch up! She now weighs 15 1/2 lbs. and is 26 1/2 inches long. Looks like the only difference between Ava and Sarah is a half an inch/lb.! She is still crawling around and pulling herself up. By the way, she was also the first one to sit up, or should I say sit down. I'm not sure if that one counts. No one has actually just sat up from a laying position. She is also standing in her crib and she still loves sucking on her thumb!

Luke weighs 20lbs and is 28 1/2 inches long. He is worming his way all around. He is very quick. He looks like an inch worm, but faster. He hasn't quite got the hands moving with the feet yet, but he will any day now. He is a first for something! He beat Ava on something. He is the first one to clap! Yay Luke -E- Doo!

My Aunt Susanne, Uncle John, and cousin Sean left town on Monday morning and headed to Clearwater for vacation. We'll miss you! Thanks for all your help. I'm sure we'll see you again soon!

Daddy is working hard and when he is not, he spend lots of time on the floor playing with the kids. He had been so busy that he hadn't least that's the excuse I was giving him. He was actually trying out a beard. He finally shaved last night, thank goodness. As you can see in the picture below, the kids love to play with him and Ava loves to climb all over him.

I officially started back to work on Monday. It was a sad say for me, but good too. I miss the kids terribly, but am happy to get back to work and help provide for the kids. I am exhausted though. The day never seems to end until the kids are in bed asleep around 8:30 pm and I don't last much longer that that. It's pretty sad to tell you the truth, but I wouldn't change it for anything in the world.

Below is some video of the kids. Enjoy. I'm lucky that I get to see it everyday! Make sure to pause the the music before you watch!

For those of you that are reading this on Facebook, to see the video you need to go to our blog.... http//

Till next Time!

Clowning Around and Having Some Fun

This week was sad for me! I officially started work this week. Don't get me wrong, I was excited to get out of the house and work, but I was very sad to leave my babies. Nick pulled through and brought them to work for a visit! It cheered Mommy up and gave others a visit!

We had some out of town visitors this week as well. Great Aunt Susanne and my cousin Sean came down for a visit. My parents are going to babysit for us, so Sean and Susanne came down to help out with my transition back to work. It helped a lot! Thank you! Great Uncle John came in for a visit on Friday and they are leaving tomorrow to go to Clearwater for a week long vacation.

I will have weights and lengths for you next week. I will be weighing and measuring them myself. Their next visit to the doctor isn't until they turn a year old. The video below shows you some great insight into what they kids have been up to lately. They are really coming into their own. You may laugh a little!

Till next week!

Don't forget to stop the music so you can hear!

A Talker and a Crawler

Well, we finally have another crawler and a talker. I'll let you see the short videos to see who they are and what they are saying! Nick and I were pretty excited! Take a guess before you scroll down and post a comment to let me know if your guesses were right! All of a sudden they seem to be growing up so fast! They will be a year old in 71 days. I remember being pregnant like it was yesterday....

Sarah aka "Beeno"

Luke aka "Luke-E-Doo"

Ava aka "Stinky" Lily aka "Lily Bug"

We also had a wonderful night out with Kevin and Sarah Crissman who also have quads (Tanner, Joel, Sophia, and Wyatt ! We had a great time. Drinks, dinner, and a movie! It turned out to be a late night, but it was worth it! Thanks for the great time guys!

Nick and I on our way out! YAY!
Kevin, Sarah, Me & Nick

Below is the video.....make sure you pause the music before you hit play or you won't be able to hear the talker! Have a wonderful week!
