After a tiring day and a struggle with extreme highs and lows of my blood sugars, I needed a boost. And wouldn't you know it the girls pulled me through. One of the girls rolled over. She almost even did a 360 because she had so much momentum. So you ask who was the first to roll over! Little peanut Sandra! Yeah! You go girl!

Sandra, always so photogenic!
Hannah ready to a ride!
Makaila enjoys the new view!
Samantha; chillin' as always!
I have been very tired and having extreme headaches lately. I have just been chalking it up to being a mother of four adorable girls. Knowing that I had gestation diabetes and hadn't checked since delivery I wanted to check my blood sugar. To my surprise, I have been having high numbers. I am continuing to check throughout the weekend and will call my doctor Monday. I know Type II diabetes was a concern my high risk OB told me about after the pregnancy, but I didn't think this would happen to me. I will update after the appointment.

Hannah or is it Makaila? ha ha Really, this is Hannah!
Sandra, had a brady! Or should I say the monitor alarmed a brady. Even though it did not appear to look like a brady we had to start a new month count down.
Makaila talking to G Ma about what she wants the Easter Bunny to bring her!
This is a common occurrence after the 4 pm feed. For some reason, they are all usually fussy between the 4 pm and 8 pm feedings. Yes, I eat dinner some how this way to.
Oh wait this is after a 8 am feeding. Hum! Another fussy time. Yup, that is a lap top behind me trying to respond to e-mails and update blogs. Can you say multi task?

Since G ma has arrived we have been hand feeding the girls most of the time. The feedings go so much faster now. When Josh is at work we prop Samantha and hand feed Hannah and Makaila. Sandra is still on an every two hour schedule during the day.
Today was such a nice day Josh, Maxine and I took the girls for their first walk around the neighborhood. They really seemed to enjoy it. However, it took more time getting them ready and in the strollers then the walk itself. It was so nice to get out and get some fresh air though. As soon as the stroller got going, Hannah fell asleep. I told Josh that I was going to take her for walks after every feed. ha ha

We as usual have a busy week ahead of us. On Monday we have a nutritionist coming to the house, Tuesday the occupational therapist comes to work with Hannah and Thursday is Samantha's physical therapy. But, we are all looking forward to Wednesday. We are counting the days. G Ma (Josh's mom) will be returning. YEAH! It will be nice to have the extra hands here. Hannah and Makaila have been struggling with reflux and require being held a lot more now. With the extra help, I also plan to organize and Spring clean.
The girls are a lot more alert now and curious about their surroundings. They love their mobiles. We had the kind that came with their bedding and only ran for I think 30 seconds. Our hands were getting sore winding them up so this weekend I got them mobiles that last for 20 minutes by remote control. Woo hoo! The girls are also holding their head up more and more and smiling more often. Sandra is still eating every two hours during the day. They all sleep after the midnight feeding until the 8 am. That is such a huge relief.
One of the small things that I do to help get through the difficult days is to take one of the girls and Maxine (the dog) for a walk to the mailbox daily. I rotate (in birth order) so they all get an equal time out. I am in the hunt for a quadruplet stroller. I have in narrowed down to two options. Yes, there are a few out there. It will be so nice to be able to take all four out on walks together. I plan on ordering (whichever one I decide on) one next week.
