During the pregnancy, we joke about everything being "times 4." I had my first taste of it when we took the babies to their 2 month well visit last week...4 new patient forms to fill out, 4 copays, and 4 sets of shots and consent forms! I am proud to say that all the babies are healthy and over 7lbs!
Sloan - 7lbs 2 ozs, 19 1/4"
Rocco - 7lbs 0 ozs ,19 3/4"
Madden - 7lbs 2 ozs, 19"
Jagger - 7lbs 1 0z, 18 1/2"
Madden is still on the oxygen but still has not had any apnea episodes. He is scheduled to go to the pulmonologist next Thursday. I am praying he will not need the oxygen anymore. Poor little dude, he hates having the canula in and is constantly tugging at it. So many times I find him looking like this...
Our dogs, Lucy and Buddy, are loving their new brothers and sister. It's really cute how Lucy has turned into a little momma. Here are more pictures as promised.

It feels so good to be home!
Please pray for us as we travel. Grandmama and Grandaddy will be flying here on Monday so they can help with the babies on the way back. We will have six adults (me and nick and the grandparents) for the four babies. Because of the airline restrictions with the oxygen, my parents will be flying on a different airline with Madden, but we will all be arriving home around the same time late Tuesday night.
We have loved our time here in Arizona. We have grown to love all the people that have been a part of our lives over the last 5 months. We will miss everyone terribly...but I will save our goodbye's for a later post!
Pictures will be coming...I promise!
It's so awesome to have a baby home...or half-way home, at least! I used to dream of the day when I could just watch my baby sleep, comfort her when she cries, feed her when she is hungry, and yes, even change dirty diapers. Believe me, I am enjoying every single minute of this. I am ready to have my whole family home but know that it will come in His time!
Her first road trip
Jagger was scheduled to be home today, but when we got to the hospital last night he was back on the oxygen again. Danielle, our nurse, said his stats were just not where they need to be so they put him back on. He just needs a little boost for a few days...hopefully, it won't be long before he can come home!
One down, three more to go!
Sloan is playing peek-a-boo and Rocco is already filling his role as the big brother! I can't believe we actually caught this on film....too funny! (Click on pic to see a better view)
Could Momma and Daddy at least look at the camera!
This will have to do!
