Hi again from Arizona!

We've had a great weekend here. Sam, Naty, and Sofi are all eating well and are little sweetie pies. They've had fun with their aunts, uncles, cousin, and grandparents who were here through the weekend. My mom and dad and Silvia and Wes flew home last night, while Kelli, Geoff, and Kaitlyn head home later today. It was fun having the whole crew here.

Today we are hanging out at the apartment and making trips to the hospital to see Matthew. He has been doing great. He is off the c-pap breathing support and is breathing room air, and has been eating portions of his meals with the bottle. The next goals are to eat fully with the bottle (46 cc every three hours), and to stay in an open air bed while maintaining his body temp. It's up to him to set the pace, the NICU takes it one baby step at a time based on his cues.

Tomorrow Sofi, Sam, and Naty have their first pediatrician appointment. This week the baby staff will be down to Dan, Dan's Mom, and I... we'll miss the extra help, but are up for the job. We'll keep you posted!

Congratulation's buddy!!!
I'm so happy to hear that you and the fab four are doing great. We can't wait to meet them. My (4) kids, Justin, Kevin, Joey and Danny have decided that they are each going to pick one of the quads as their special little buddy.

Hey Salinas-

Greetings from one of your new neighbors... Dave and Leslie Kuhl. We live a few houses away at 32521 Woodvale Court. Got this web site from our friends Dan and Nancy Bass.

Congrats on your fab four! How crazy, fun and exciting life will be.

We have a 3 Y.O. girl Kendall, and a 4 Y.0. Reid. Wanted to let you know we have two very lightly used cribs with matresses, and extra high chair, a unused infact Britax car seat, and misc stuff in you would be interested.

Since our kids are three and four, we are in the process of cleaning out some of this stuff and would love to help out a new neighbor. Drop us an e-mail if you think the cribs might be of interest!

Can not wait to meet you!!
