Quad Pics...Lovin' the Home Life

Enjoying their daily "tummy-time"! Savannah, Andrew, Ethan, Benjamin...Gig 'Em Ags




Shiloh, guarding "her litter"


Lovin' their paci's!


The twins are looking SOOO much alike! Andrew has a tiny little "stork-bite" on the back of his head which helps for now! I can just look at their faces and tell them apart...don't ask me how...mommas just know. Drew is also going to have surgery soon for his bilateral inguinal hernias, poor baby. I had the same thing when I was three months old...so, I guess his surgical scars will help in figuring out who's who! (E on the left, Drew on the right)


Talk about four little peas in a pod! Aren't they precious?! Chunk, twig, twig, chunk!



Every time I am feeding on this bed, Shi tries to wedge herself in there somehow...starrrrving for attention!


Savannah is terrified at her momma's pale, make-up-less face with nappy hair! ;) Seriously, I MUST get some sun! Love this pic of Sav! She thinks her mom is crazy!


Nurse Ashlie came by and made Savannah some adorable girly headbands! Sav is too cute and Ashlie is too cool!


I'll try to write more about "life with quads" later! I only have like 1.5 hours in between feedings and it seems that those hours FLY by! But I'm still loving every second of it...these babies are precious! It is tiring and a LOT of work, but I'm completely in love!

Oh Suzanne! How precious! Thank you for taking time out of your quadruple-y busy day to grant us bloggers a peek into your life. It looks like you are supremely organized so far.

I love the new pics! They are all getting so big. Sorry that Etan is having surgery. Miles and Madyson both had hernia surgery. Madyson's happened before she came home and Miles had his shortly after everyone was home. The surgeon's at Cook's are great he will be in good hands. I will keep you guys in my prayers I know how scarry it is to have your baby in surgery. I love Savannah's headbands, She is going to be a girly girl like my Madyson. And we loved headbands so I will be passing those along to you guys. Hang in there! You are doing a great job. I remeber those few minutes between feeds and how they flew by. It is hard work but I loved every minute of it and still do.

The quads are so sweet! It is hard to believe how far they have come in such a short period of time. Thanks for keeping us up to date with them. I can remember how exhausting one baby was, so I can't even fathom 4 at one time! Blessings!

beth ewing said...

they are too precious and getting so big! i can't believe you have any time to blog. ok stupid question from a momma of one...how in the world to you feed 4 babies? i mean are you able to breastfeed them all exclusively and how do you do that without turning around and having to feed another. i'm just trying to imagine how in the world you feed them all and still have time for anything else. you're amazing! and you look great...not pale!

Jody and Janell said...

ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL! You look amazing! Isn't life great?? These first few months are crazy hectic but it goes SOOOOOOOO fast. My twins are almost 6 months and it is making me crazy b/c they are getting too big! ; ) I want them to stay little and snuggle always. Isn't being a mother the greatest joy EVER? You are doing FANTASTIC! YOU GO GIRL!!!!

You've got that NICU feeding hold going on. A NICU mom can spot it miles away. We still feed our 6 mo twin boys that way. Best of luck...hang in there. You are amazing and still so positive.

Can you believe they are almost 2 months old? Did anything you imagined this would be like come true? Or is is just better!

I love how they all sleep on their boppies in the pack and play. Is that by design? I remember co-bedding my twins in the pack and plays.

Kimberly said...

You are a super mommy, Suz! Thanks so much for taking the time to update us with pictures. They are absolutely adorable!!!!
So the comment about peas in a pod got me thinking-any ideas for Halloween costumes yet?

Anonymous said...

Love the pics! Don't worry about the make-up, you're still radiating!! Just wanted to give you a heads-up... I *think* I saw your playpen on the morning news today for a recall because of something to do with "strings". Just for safety you may want to check it out. Thanks for sharing your beautiful gang with us!

Everyone looks so great Suz, including you! You must be catching some sleep or you hide the deprivation well:) Love the pic of Savannah sacked out with her mouth wide open....I'm sure there have to be some moments recently of you and Joe with the same expression.

The babies do look just precious, beutiful, I know they are little bundles of joy! Your friend in East Texas.

Misty said...

They are all so adorable. You can really tell in that one picture the chunks and the twigs. To funny!! The twins really do look allot alike. I always wondered how you could tell identicals apart. I guess your right a mom always knows! :-)
I'm so glad that everyone is doing well and that things are going good!

laura said...

Suzanne, you look incredible! You don't look like you just had a baby, much less FOUR!! Wow. My favorite pic is the one where they all have their pacifiers in and their eyes are wide and looking all around...how precious. Your children are just beautiful. What a blessing!

Amanda's News said...

ADORABLE pics!!! Love the one of them all in the pack-n-play! Thanks for the update:) You really are super mommy!!! Try and get some rest in between those feedings!

Patti said...

I've been reading your blog ever since I heard about you giving birth to quads. I'm pregnant with only 1 child and due in about a month and have an 18 month old. Whenever I'm worried that I'll be overwhelmed I think of you and your 4 beautiful babies!!! I live in upstate NY but my husband is from Aggieland so I love seeing all the Aggie references.

Your little Ethan looks just like his daddy - they are all TOO cute! Keep on smiling,

Your babies are beautiful and you look amazing. I have been following your blog because a friend told me about your quads. I wanted to pass along a website for you. Since the babies seem to love the Soothie pacifiers, then they will love these: http://www.wubbanub.com/ They are able to keep the pacifier in longer and when they get older, they can find their own pacifier! : ) Congrats and God Bless! Sincerely, Elizabeth Ryll elizabeth@ryllco.com

Love, love, love the pics!

On a side note.... I've never seen another Ashlie spelled like that! Hmm....

Sunni Len said...

The pics are so great thanks for making the time. Love ya.

jaj said...

Congratulations on having all of your children home! The are all just so precious and beautiful. I am mom to a 24-weeker, who just turned 8 years old this month, so your blog is bringing back a lot of memories for me. I can't imagine a preemie times 4, though. You are doing a great job!

Anonymous said...

I love the pics of your quads! They are beautiful and you did a great job at holding them in for so long! You truly are blessed to have four beautiful babies that are perfect. I love the pic of the babies sleeping midline and working on their "heads". That is my passion at work, to send preemies home and while they are in there and not have preemie head. I couldn't exactly figure out what you used though, looks great and would love to tell families.

I loved seeing E,D,S and B! Especially the picture of Savannah's little look. Couldn't you just watch their expressions all day?!?!

Nate, Maurine, & Hannah said...

Love the updates! You are doing great Suz!

Heather said...

I liked the chuck, twig, twig, chunk too! They are precious!

MaryBeth said...

Just had to delurk to tell you how much I loved the chunk, twig, twig, chunk photo! Too cute... love your blog!! Can't imagine how you find the time. I had to wait until my trio was 7 months old and sleeping through the night to get one started... way to go, Suz.
