Today, I decided to try to feed all four girls by myself at the noon feeding just to see if I can do it. To be honest, I felt that if I could do that feeding, I could do any of them. Three babies get medicine before that feed and one of them gets two meds. So, it definitely takes more time and patience. I was able to do it, and I still have all of my hair. After a while, I may have a permanent circle on my cheek from holding someones bottle with my face so I can use my hands. We did start to prop Sandra for partial of her bottles. She is doing much better at pacing herself. But I have to watch her ever so close because she did have a brady while being hand fed just yesterday.

Right after I decided to give the feed a try Debbie decided to fly home to be with her mother. So, I am glad that I am able to do it alone. I am glad that Debbie is flying home to be with Grandma but the girls will miss her. Debbie does plan to come back once things have settled down in Missouri and will return with Stan. I know that since I was able to feed that Josh will be able to also. I think he will attempt it tomorrow. We are going to have to prioritize our doctors visits for now. My goal is to have Josh and I rotate the night feedings so that the other can sleep some. He will also have to take a shift of watching them when he gets home from work so that I can do necessities like shower. ha ha Between 8 am and noon it is crazy here. The girls reflux is at it's worst and there is allot of screaming and they need constant care. It is not unusual for me to be trying to console three at once.

The girls are growing and doing great! Their new weights are:
Makaila - 8 lbs 5.5 oz
Hannah - 8 lbs 1 oz
Samantha - 9 lbs 4 oz
Sandra - 6 lbs 3 oz

If I go a little longer than normal without a post, know that we are doing good just extremely busy. Please to continue to keep Josh's grandma and family in your thoughts and prayers.

I dont blame you for worrying about RSV. And I think the meals have been the most helpful for you anyway, so am glad that you will still get that. I miss them, sure hope to be able to get over there again. Kiss them all. Take care, off to take a speech test. Have a good night.
