Life with all four, and a shout out to the NICU!

We've had a great first couple of days with Matthew at home. He is such a little angel. The first night we kept checking on him to make sure he was ok and he always seemed to have his eyes wide open checking out his new surroundings and trying to decide where he was. He got extra cuddles to make extra sure he knew he was loved and taken care of. I think he missed all of his nurse and doctor friends from the NICU who treated him so well. We are very thankful to all of them for helping our big boy get well and for being such great teachers to Dan and I. BTW, thanks to the NICU nurses for leaving messages on the blog, that is so nice! Your handsome little buddy says hi and wants you to know he is eating like a very big boy. :)

Yesterday (Wednesday) we went to the pediatrician with all four babies. It required two car trips which gave us our first official taste for life with quads. It is crazy busy and we love it. The doctor says they are all doing great, gaining weight like champs. Today was a nice relaxing day with no appointments, so Dan and I were able to go to the pool for a little while while the grandmas watched the little ones. In addition to being super Dad, Dan has been busy coordinating insurance issues, travel, online minivan shopping, etc. so he especially deserved a little break.
Tomorrow morning we are taking Naty, Sam, and Sofi to the Children's Hospital for a six hour altitude test to determine if they will need oxygen on the plane like Matt. We'll let you know how that goes!

Haha! I'll be sure to bring, grits, okra, and some "britches" - I wonder if I can find a kids' translation of Faulkner? What am I saying... I need an adult translation first!

That should be an interesting flight home, but it is still so amazing you are already headed home. You all will be in our prayers Mon. for a safe journey.
