Welcome 2009!

Our visit today went very well. The ultrasound showed that all babies are still doing great! Fluid is normal, heartbeats are normal, cords look fine, and cervix is still long and closed. As Dr. E put it, the kids couldn't be doing any better! We are so thankful to God for this news...as every day that we get through with no complications is a great victory. Dr. E suggested that beginning next week we will go to twice a week office visits. So I have an appointment Tuesday and Friday of next week. Once again to hear the "Quadfather" say how complex this pregnancy is and see him shake his head about certain decisions...reminds us of how we NEED our heavenly Father in every aspect of this pregnancy and in our lives.

Thank you for being faithful in your prayers. Here are some specific prayer requests:

- Please pray that my contractions will not increase in the upcoming weeks
- Please pray for the babies' cords to remain tangle-free
- Please pray for the babies' fluid levels to remain normal
- Please pray for our doctors and decisions they must make with this complicated pregnancy
- Please pray for Nick and my mom as they travel this weekend to "swap" places

This next year will be an exciting year for us and we welcome it with open arms! I can't wait to wrap my arms around our four little miracles and hear their first cry, see their first smile, bite my first baby butt (please don't think I'm weird...I've always wanted to nibble on my own baby's booty!), and have soooo many more firsts. I can't believe this is finally the year! I hope you and your family have a Great 2009!

I will leave you with my 23 week belly shot.

Woohoo! Way to geaux babies. Safe travels to hubby and mom...we did the "swap" SEVERAL times while I was there too so we know it all too well :)

You are doing so great...praise God! Your family is in our thoughts and prayers and I can't wait (well, technically I can wait so don't get in a hurry babies) for you to get back to Louisiana with those little bundles of joy so I can meet them!

Keep on keeping on girl. Let me know if you need anything


P.S. I have eaten my fair share of baby butt over the last 15 months too :)

We continue to pray for you, Kami. Glad to hear that things are going so well. I remember all too well the complicated serious conversations surrounding our pregnacy. Just keep focusing on how God is providing daily for you! He is faithful!

WOW! Good for you for doing so great! You are almost a 24 week graduate! Even though you want them in there longer, of course! I'll say a prayer that you can hold them in as long as God will allow you!

Keep resting and drinking water :-)

I just started following your blog and I wish all good things for you and your family!
I am the mother of 6 year old quads, three boys one girl. Only two of my boys are identical. They were born at 27 weeks but are all healthy and happy today.
Keep up the good work and continue to allow God to be in charge.
Feel free to contact me through my blog if I can be of any help.

still looking awesome! Ian likes to eat"booty cake" as he calls it. The girls are always trying to tell him it's not the kind of cake you eat....but they die laughing. Loving how the Lord is taking care of everything...what a testimony!
