Kangaroo Care with baby Andrew...in HEAVEN! One of the neatest experiences of my life! His vitals remained completely stable the whole time, he was so relaxed.

AMAZING pics!
God has really blessed your family!
I am truly amazed at how healthy and precious your babes are...Savannah looks like her daddy.
You did it.
You made it through the crappy bedrest and not being able to breathe and eating all that junk food (sounds fun the first week, but had to of gotten old).
All is good.
And I am so proud of you.

Oh they are so precious! Love the pic of Savannah sleeping in her pink hat! Love the pics! You look amazing. Keeping you all in prayer.

Whoa...you said you had FOUR babies? You look AWESOME, sister! Seriously! Love, love, love all the sweet pictures of the babies but I must say my FAV is of you holding baby Andrew in Kangaroo Care. Made me tear up and get all warm and fuzzy inside. We serve an awesomely loving and merciful God, don't we? Praise Him, Praise Him ALL you little children, God is love, God is love!

Such beautiful babies and a beautiful Momma! How does it feel to be able to see your feet again? ;-)

I hope you take this in the humorous way it's intended, but the color and size of Savannah's feeding tube in the second picture you posted makes it look likes she's got a baby cigarette hangin' out of her mouth that she's puffing away on! ;-) It's like she's thinking, "Boy, you would not BELIEVE the last few months that I'VE had!!! Pull up a rocking chair buddy and let me tell you all about it..."

Sorry. Just a little *giggle* I had... :-)

Melissa said...

They seriously are the most precious little angels ever! I am so happy for you guys and couldn't be more excited about how merciful our God is! They will be home before you know it and getting into everything. How cute is the Gig 'Em pic???

Jamie's Crew said...

What awesome pictures! Thank you for sharing with all of your blog support team! I love that already, names are being shortened and endeared to each baby: Drew, Sav, Ben, Ethan. They are so loved! God has done an awesome job, and so have you and Joe. You all look so good. Praise God from Whom all Blessings Flow.
Love,

Okay, thinking back to my previous comment...I might have to say that the pic of Kangaroo Care is my second favorite pic and the one of Drew giving the Gig 'em thumbs up is hands down my favorite! Fightin' Texas Aggie Class of 2001...and Drew will be Class of 2029? My nephew, Drew, will be 3 in Oct. and already has "Gig 'Em Aggies" down and will sing The Spirit of Aggieland along with you. Training them early!

Emily said...

Suzanne, you look amazing! By looking at you it seems impossible that you had four babies in your tummy a few days ago. I am so thankful that you are getting to have so much contact with all four of your precious children. The kangaroo care picture and the one of Savannah laying on her tummy are my favorites. God is so good!! We continue to pray for all six of you daily.

Jody and Janell said...

YOU DID IT!!! They are all sooooo perfect! Oh Savannah is an angel! Just think: they WILL be home soon and you guys will all get to snuggle and love on each other. It is the BEST! You look AMAZING!!! Keep up the great job! God is soooooo INCREDIBLE!!!

I love the pics. They are doing so well and you look great. I did the kangaroo care with the girls. It always calmed them down and they would keep thier vitals up. It was a neat experience. They are going to be home before you know it.

Glad things are going so well with the babies. It is hard to believe those were all inside of you such a short time ago. God is so good!

Leah said...

Oops, that comment above should say "pink hat" not "Pink hate!"

Suz you look wonderful and so happy! Praying that those beautiful babies start piling on the weight! Are you pumping for them - are they able to have BM or what? I hope you can bring them all home soon.

Suz,

I am so glad you all are doing so well. God is so awesome! Hang in there. You made it through all the bedrest and other hard stuff. The NICU time will pass and you will soon be able to have all these babies at home with you.

That picture of little Savannah's face is sooooooo sweet. What an angel baby!! Please put a little kiss on her head from your sister in Christ, Christina in Palm Springs!

Suz...check out Precious Image Creations (I have no financial gain at all, I have just used it with my preemie) They make a cami style top that you can actually wear a baby in (probably two with how small yours are.) Kangaroo care is what they had in mind when they designed the top. It is very cool.
Those babies are precious! You look great!

How is Shiloh liking having you home, Suzanne? Are you taking anything home that smells like the babies for Shiloh to sniff? I can't believe that the Steece IV are already 2 weeks old! God Bless each and every one of you!
