Happy Birthday to the Quads! and the Doctors

Hi everyone, Today is the Quads' one week birthday! It is amazing that much time has passed already. With Sammy, Natalia and Sofia home, we have now settled into our 3 hour feeding/changing routine, dividing up the work, living by the alarm clock, etc. We went to the pediatrician's office today with the 3.. Boy what an adventure. We had three car seats in my Mom's Honda, plus Mom and Dad, but we made it! They are so cute in their little car seats...I included pictures of that and of the doctor's visit...The appointment went really well. They are all gaining weight, feeding well and holding their temperatures. The doctors continue to be amazed that the 3 made it out of the hospital in 4 days. We have another appointment on Friday.

My mom and I went to the hospital to visit Matthew. He is also doing well, now he is in an open crib. He is working on his breathing and eating. Matthew will probably be in the NICU for another 1-2 weeks. At that point he can fly, and we will all come back to Michigan!

One other note, Melissa's grandmother (Nana) is coming tomorrow to help out. We are very excited for her arrival and look forward to some very cute babies with Great Grandmother pictures!!

Thanks everyone for your comments and posts, it really is so sweet and touches us!

Take care..

P.S. There are loads of pictures at
