Quads 10/13 Update: Quads Due Date, Dr. Visit and More News Coverage!!

Hi everyone! So sorry we haven't updated the blog in a week. We got a little buried and there isn't a ton of new news. Today was the Quad's official due date and my sister's birthday..

Happy Birthday Silvia!!

On to the update!

The quads went to see Doctor Miele last week. They were given a great bill of health. They are all growing really well. Matthew is up to 7 lb. 12 oz., which is in the top 75% for newborn boys of his age; Sammy weighed 7 lb. 5.5 oz. (65%); Sofia weighed 6 lb. 15 oz. (75% on the girl chart); and little Natalia weighed 6 lb. 5 oz. (50%). We are so very lucky that they are healthy and growing so well. We are going back in a month for their next check-up. It was also the first time we traveled with all four in the new minivan, so there was major cuteness going on.
