The only problem is that Andy had a head cold last week and now I have it...ugh! Praying the babies & Jenna stay healthy!!!

Way to grow, babies! They also are definitely growing as individuals and their little personalities are starting to shine. Here is an update.
Lauren- Our smiley little girl! She has bright eyes that always seem to take in the world in new & exciting ways. She often loves to smile and flirt with anyone who talks to her. She is a wonderful sleeper, eater, and is pretty content but has the sweetest siren of a cry when she is hungry or uncomfortable! Although not a reflux girl, Lauren will spit-up if not burped well. The other day daddy was feeding the girls and had not burped either one, and she erupted like Mt. Etna! Andy started to panic and once I lifted Lauren up so she didn't choke, I laughed and laughed (I think I am far too use to getting puked on). I had fun watching Andy problem solve what to do when you are still in the middle of feeding 2 kids and suddenly you have puke all over yourself, the sofa, and one (or 2) of the babies. Lauren was just fine and seemed unfazed. Daddy was not! We LOVE our beautiful Lauren!

Tanner- He is overall the most laid-back of the four! Both boys have pretty bad reflux and are on meds for that. I feel terrible for the pain they have, and Tanner is often straightening his trunk, extending his legs, and wincing. On the plus side, however, he has wonderful trunk extension and has the best 90 degree head up on tummy time! (I know, what a therapist thing to say...). Tanner also use to prefer his head to move to only his left side and I was concerned about torticolis and a flattened head, so mom here went into action. I started doing therapy with him and I am proud to say the preference is almost gone! We also have Early On now coming for all the kiddos, so hopefully they can help with this and any other issues.
Tanner has the longest, most adorable eyelashes and while not as smiley as the girls, he will stare adoringly at you with these big, beautiful eyes and my heart just melts. Then, if I am so lucky, he will give this half-grin smile showing off a right cheeked dimple and it just makes my day. I love my Tanner-Man so much!

Tyler also likes to stare adoringly into my eyes, and smiles are a rare but awesome thing to see. Like Tanner, Tyler also has a dimple in his right cheek and does the cutest little half-smirk smile. They are identical but both look completely different to me. We love our little Tyler so much!
|So serious, little man!|

As for us, it seems totally normal to feed 4 babies every 3 hours & wear spit-up as our cologne of choice. And FYI, a white residue on shoulders is the "in" wardrobe accessory right now!

Life is very, very busy, especially as the holidays approach. But, we are so blessed & we love it!
