It has been our lifelong dream to become parents. On February 12, 2009 at 29 weeks and 4 days, Sloan, Rocco, Madden and Jagger were welcomed into our world. This is our story of our pregnancy, delivery, and life with quadruplets.
Last month, we had a great visit with Aunt Pat and Uncle Bill from Tennessee. This was their first time to meet the babies. They are grandparents of twins so they understand first hand life with multiples!
Uncle Bill and Aunt Pat with Jagger, Rocco, Sloan and Madden I think Madden might have been a little tired of taking pics ;)
Aunt Pat made these beautiful personalized quilts for each of the babies
Sloan loved hers!

"Thanks Aunt Pat...we LOVE the LSU blankets you made for us...our daddy does too!" (Clockwise: Sloan, Madden, Jagger, Rocco)
Also last month, we went to a couple of parties. Sloan was invited to a Fancy Nancy birthday party by her friend Mikalyn. It was such a cute party. The girls dressed up, made purses, picked out accessories, had a fashion show and decorated their own cupcakes! Sloan couldn't participate in everything but of course, she had to dress the part...

Here is Sloan with her fancy cousin Rylee!
It was a such a nice few hours spent with my baby girl! I look forward to many more momma/daughter days!
I didn't get many pictures from our LSU party, but here is another of Sloan dressing the part...

Now, you might think that she wouldn't like wearing those tutus...being itchy and all....that was Nick's concern anyway. I kid you not, when I put the tutu on her and the tulle touched her skin, she let out a giddy little sigh. She is such the princess already!
The babies turned 8 months old this month! They are getting so big. Crazy how time flies. I thought you might be interested in their most current weights and recent developments.
Rocco - 19lbs 2ozs Sloan - 19lbs 2ozs - she caught up to Rocco! She is quite the eater. Jagger - 17lbs 2ozs Madden - 16lbs 8ozs
Just as of last week, we have two babies with two teeth each....Rocco and Jagger. Sloan and Madden can't be far behind judging by the pool of drool left behind wherever they have been! Sloan is rolling all over the place, but the boys are only rolling from belly to back. They are all sitting pretty good. I still sit right by them or put pillows around them in case they take a dive...which they still do pretty often. So is that considered sitting? If not, they are very very close! Here are some pics from our days together...

Jagger, a little unsure still with his balance

Happy Rocco...notice the drool!

I think she was the only one that thought it was fun!
Okay....so this is another one of those mom is bored and alone with the kids pics. Before you judge me for subjecting my children to this, I will tell you that they were all laughing until I got the camera out and ready. They were having fun....REALLY!
Aww...precious little girl! She couldn't wait to get home for her nap.
This is a video of Jagger and Madden loving each other. So fun!
Oh yeah, we started eating meat this month! GG and I are still making all their baby food and they usually like just about everything we have made, but meat...not so much! We started with chicken first. They have definitely gotten better with it, but this video of Jagger will show you just how much they don't love it!
Finally, we had the pleasure of spending the day with some new friends. For the LSU/Florida game, we tailgated with fellow quadparents Torey and Jac Tubre, along with Matt and Sandra Cochran and Billy and Moni Graf. The game turned out to be a let down, but we did have a great time with them and look forward to seeing them again. Special thanks to grandmama and grandaddy for keeping the kiddos while we could go play!
Sandra, Jac, Moni (Yes...she is wearing Alabama...the nerve! ;) and me

Billy does a mean Johnny Cash!
That's one tired little mama...I know Jac, anywhere you can get it, huh?
Some of you may be familiar with this, but this was done at our church this past Sunday. There were so many great testimonies of how God works in people's lives especially when we do not even deserve it! Thanks to everyone who shared their story on Sunday. Nick and I were so glad to be a part of it.
