Lesson Learned

Hannah in her banana orange sherbet outfit - orange shirt yellow pants (Daddy dressed her).

Sandra's current bed. If we put her in her crib she chokes on her vomit. So, she spends most time in a bouncy seat.

As often as I put socks on these girls they fall off. But, I don't mind I love their cute little toes. Plus, we live in TX where it is warm.

Makaila loves the swing!

Samantha is a great pillow!

Sandra and Samantha chatting away! Sandra now gets to be on tummy time since the last couple times she hasn't had a brady. She enjoys tummy time with her sisters.

How can this possibly be comfortable?

No, this is not Gymboree, it is our Adult game room turned into a baby's dream room with all the fun things to play with.

I learned a big lesson today. If you are looking for a make over or just a major change in hair style don't go to a drive through. Alright, it wasn't a drive through but it might as well have been. Here comes a true story!

Some of you already know the beginning, so bare with me. When we first found out we were pregnant we were told we were expecting twins. When we went back for a follow up ultra sound we were informed of triplets. That night I told Josh (jokingly) "If I go back and they tell me quadruplets, I am going to the nearest barber shop and getting my head shaved." I have had long hair for a quite a while now. But not thinking quadruplets were ever a possibility that was what I planned. I figured if it were true I would never have time again to do my hair. Well, here we are 3 1/2 months into raising four girls. I have not had time to do my hair. I got tired of the silly pony tails and decided to get my hair cut. My hair has not been healthy due to the pregnancy and the pony tails were not helping.

So, today I went to get my hair cut. Now, I knew I was really taking a chance going to once of these quick, no appointment necessary places. But I figured, I'd take my chances. I knew that I wanted shoulder length and a hair style that didn't require a lot of maintenance. I wanted a "wash and go" style. As I was sitting waiting for my turn I saw a picture of exactly the cut I wanted on their wall. I thought to myself, they must have people ask for that cut often and they should be able to do it easily. Boy, was I wrong! Speaking of "boy", I look like a boy! ha ha I keep telling myself that it is just hair that it'll grow back. And it better as it is no where near my shoulders. The lady cut one side too short and fixed it by cutting more off both sides. I know, I don't get it either.

The girls are doing great and don't seem to mind my new do. I took Makaila and Samantha to the doctor to day for their RSV shots. Makaila gained one pound and Samantha 1 1/4 pounds in the last month. I went to the doctor today and my biopsies were negative. I have stomach lining damage (ulcerated areas) due to the reflux during pregnancy and IBS. I was put on a new medication to help with the pain.

It was been fun to see the girls growing up lately. They are starting to hold their heads up and straight, not for long but they are doing it. If Sandra is upset and we enter the room her whole face lights up and she gets excited. I have seen Samantha smile so big it was a giggle. She enjoys Daddy playing with her button nose. Sandra has been very colic lately, spitting up after every meal and at least half of it so we started her on a new medicine today. I hope it helps. Sandra and Hannah are on two different meds that they take four times a day but 30 minutes prior to a feeding. It makes it difficult. First we have to wake up during the night earlier to give it to them. And secondly, if they are resting, we have to wake them up and then they remember they are hungry and will cry for that 30 minutes until they can eat.
We are all doing great! 54 more days of RSV lock down. Not that we will be going very many places once April 1 st comes along. But, it won't be a scare if we had to. I do know that neighborhood walks will be had and Daddy is going to take the girls running starting in April. I can't wait. Maxine has a fan club so I know the girls will get one too. Hope everyone is doing good and are healthy.

Loved the picts. Is Hannah the little corkskrew? Ouch! Good thing they are so flexible at this point. I especially liked Sandra and Samantha at tummy time. They get cuter each day. Thanks again for taking the precious time to share picts and stories.

I think you forgot one picture..... we want to see your new haircut! c'mon how bad can it be? The girls are getting soooo big I cant believe it! They all (even Sandra) have rolls! Sure looks like Samantha is sucking her thumb in that one shot. Glad your biopsy is negative and hope the medicine helps your pain. Sounds like the girls all got over the last cold, that is good, I sure wish I could be there, I hate missing them! Kiss them all for me please!!!!!!!!

Love Auntie Debbie
