Been a LONG time since I last checked in but my personal life has been in a really bad downward spiral. I will post more about that but not right now. I have some good news to share. On September 14th Joseph crawled! I am SO happy for my little boy! It is not true crawling. He is on his elbows and puts his arms forward. Then he drags his body. I am SO happy that he has figured out a way to get around. Then on October 12th Margaret actually sat up! Yea! That was the first time! She crawls on her hands and knees. Then she stops and pushes herself up and sits on her legs. I am SO happy for her. She also continues to be a little chatterbox. She speaks the most of all the babies. James continues to be "all boy". He LOVES to take balls and to throw them around and what them bounce. It is SO cute. He is also really good about putting things away and bringing me items and saying thank you. My munchkins are the best! Must go now because they are waking up...

Out and about...

I had to take the babies out. It was a challenge because the babies are sick with a bad cold. James is suffering the worst then by a far second is Margaret. Joseph is lucky because he only has a slight stuff nose.

So I had help from my daughter in loading the babies. We had to drive about 30 miles away to have Joseph's helmet checked out. It was just a fitting check. Joseph has been wearing a helmet in the hopes of adjusting the shape of his poor little head.

I am pleased to report Joseph is now rotating with purpose to get something. I am SO happy to see him actively work to go and get a toy!

For the last 3 weeks James has been using the sign of "all done" when he is finished eating. Now that Margaret is eating too he does not understand that he can be all done but not get down from the high chair. I make he wait while Margaret is finishing her food. Margaret has to wait too sometimes but it is usually the other way around...lol.

Yesterday we went to WIC. James weighed 26lb 9oz. I was told he was at lest in the 80% in height and weight. Margaret was 16lb 15oz. She has finally reached the growth chart in height. She hit the 1%...lol. At least she is growing. :D Joseph is getting bigger but he still is not on the growth chart. My poor little guy! Sadly, I missed his weigh because I was being pested by a nurse who was curious about the babies.

Margaret and Joseph were switched to Boost 1.5 (high calorie). I will be feeding Joseph and Margaret more and more food and supplimenting the food with the Boost. I hope this works and continues to give them all the calories they need.

Picture of James in his "big boy" bed

Here is a picture of James in his "big boy" bed. This was his first night sleeping in the toddler bed and he did SO well!

Starting Over

I have written a couple of blogs chronicling the lives of my surviving quadruplets but things seem to get lost on the computer when it crashes so now I am using a public blogger. Hopefully, I will not lose my information again.

Yesterday, August 1st, one of my babies became a little boy. James slept in a toddler bed! He had escaped out of his crib a couple of time and we were worried he would hurt himself so DH and I decided to get a toddler bed.

Margaret also has escaped her bed once. I have NO idea how she managed that! She does not sit up on her own and she does not crawl properly (only army crawls). She is a MAJOR talker. She babbles a LOT but she also says a lot of words too.

Joseph can roll both directions really well. I have high hope for him and I hope to see him sitting (at least aided) in the next 3 months.

Now that I have started a blog I hope to write here more and more often. I want to remember my day-to-day life with the babies. It is SO amazing raising high order multiples! I feel very blessed by them!
