Hi from Mel!

Hi everyone! Thank you SOOOOO much for all of the sweet messages and for thinking of us. Today has been an amazing day. Natalia, Samuel, and Sofia have been in the room with us all day so we are able to feed, change, and take care of them. They are so beautiful and sweet and strong, I can't believe it. We've been dreaming of this for months and it still exceeds all expectations. The delivery was surreal, it was amazing to see so many doctors and staff working together to say Happy Birthday to each baby. Pretty amazing to hear each of the four come out crying and then to see them for the first time. It has been extra special to have my Mom, Dad, and Kelli here on less than a day's notice, in addition to Dan's mom who has been here all along. The doctors said we had an awesome cheering section in the waiting room yesterday. Danny has been to see Matthew a few times today and I will be able to see him later tonight. The NICU staff says he is doing great and is right on par for where he should be at this age (i.e., the others are just overachievers). They have ensured us that he will be fine and not to worry. I love the little picture of him with the nose tubes and Michigan cap, and we can't wait to have him in the room with the rest of the crew. :) Lots of love to all of you, we are so lucky to have such wonderful friends and family. Talk to you soon!
