Okay, so where to begin...first we had Aunt Lynn and cousin Seth (Nick's sister and our nephew) come visit last month. I believe it was love at first sight...for both Aunt Lynn and the babies! We had such a good visit with them and are looking forward to another visit in August. Then, we had the pleasure of our AC going out for a few days in this miserable 100 degree weather. Of course we relocated to GG and Big Pop's house until it was fixed. We also had our 4 month well visit. Dr. said babies are doing great and growing nicely. You be the judge (these weights are from a few weeks ago):
Madden - 11lbs 12ozs
Jagger - 11lbs 13ozs
Sloan - 12lbs 3ozs
Rocco - 13lbs 3ozs
She also said that it was time to start feeding these babies! How exciting...uh, messy too! Little did I know what we were really in for. They have gotten much better than when we first started. They started with rice cereal for a couple of weeks then we introduced some veggies this past week. I am having fun making their food...it really saves lots of money as you can imagine buying baby food for four!

Madden went to the pulmonologist a couple weeks ago. He is doing great each time they test him off the oxygen, but we still can't get rid of it completely until he has done a sleep study. The dr. just wants to be certain he will still do okay in a deep sleep. We are able to take him off the oxygen for a couple of hours each day. Our sleep study is scheduled for July 21st in New Orleans. Also, Jagger had his appointment with the eye doctor for his hemangioma in his eye (you can see it in his right eye in the picture above.) Good news is that his vision is equally good in both eyes and that the hemangioma is not affecting his vision. It should go away on its own but it may take several years. The dr. said it will be the brightest and biggest during the ages of 3-6 months then should start to lighten and get smaller...eventually go away.
We had a great Fourth of July...spending the day at my parents house with the entire fam. The babies even went for a dip in their new pool.
