Cranial Band 2009 Calendar Hopefuls!!!

Cranial Technologies creates a calendar every year of cute little kiddos in their cranial bands. I tried to take some pics the day before the quads got their bands off so we could hopefully make it somewhere in the 2009 calendar! These were my favorites! (I have previously posted the other pics I am going to send in as well)


I just liked this one because each set of twins are posing the same way...again!









Oh man...my sons are going to KILL ME one day! (If their dad doesn't first!...haha...jk- Joe got a good chuckle out of these pics!)











Just consumed with excitement over mommy playing dress up at their expense...


Drew: "MOM! You've GOT to be KIDDIN' ME!?!"








I have about 10 pictures of Ben eating his "flower"

So....hopefully we will make it in there somewhere! I'd LOVE to be on the cover...but I just didn't have time to get too creative. (I wonder why?)

Those are the CUTEST pictures ever!!! I love them! If your kiddos don't make it in to that calendar, who ever is in charge of the selection process should have their heads examined. They are adorable!!!!! :)

very clever! By the way, I wanted to ask you about the cereal in the bottle for reflux. I have a 3 month old and our pedi suggested the same. Did it help your little ones?

JAMIE'S CREW said...

What great pictures! Every family has one of those type photos. For us - my maternal grandmother's very best friend from high school - crocheted a darling jacket, hat and booties for my firstborn child. It meant alot to her to do it since all my grandparents are gone. The problem? The 3-piece crochet masterpiece was very PINK and my first born was a BOY!

My husband was a bit offended that my mother insisted on photos of HIS son dressed in pink and sent to the family friend! LOL!

They are so CUTE!!!! I'm SURE you will be on the cover...seriously, how could they Not be??:)

Jeffrey & Amanda said...

I don't know how these pictures couldn't make the calendar! Ok, give me a break your "lack of creativity" puts my best creative days to shame! Too cute!

Such great pics..your kids are BEAUTIFUL!!!! I know you are probably going to say, you just know, but do you have trouble telling Drew and Ethan apart? I know you once said you dress one in stripes, but after a bath, when they are naked, or just in a diaper are you ever worried about getting them mixed up...I am sure they have different personalities, so you can tell that way...but I was just curious. You are so blessed!!!!!!

Suz...I absolutely LOVE the flower pics!!!! This one will make it on the wall of fame. I got your text the other day, sorry I didn't respond. I am off towards the end of this week and will call for a good time to come by as always. Much love

Wondering if you get to now keep the kids bands now that you are doen with them? Just currious!!!
Other wise they are just completely adorable, the pictures are just pricless.

Suzanne said...

anon #1- yes, i can tell them apart..it is harder now that their heads look alike (drew used to have a longer forehead) but i can still tell! joe is getting a lot better too! it sounds corny but yes, mamas just "know" and it is mainly the "way" they look back at me. ethan will look you straight in the eyes while drew will look at you, then look around, then look back at you again.

anon #2- YES! you better believe we get to keep those expensive bands! i'm thinking about dining room table center pieces or wall fixtures! ha...for the price WE paid for them, they will be around forEVER!

Stacey T. said...

Delurking to say that those pictures are the cutest things I've ever seen, and I would be money they will end up as May 2009 (May flowers)!!!!!

Your babies are so CUTE!

Cheryl said...

Hi, My husband and I are an Aggie couple that love checking on The QUADS! This one was especially funny to us. Love the flower headbands!!!

Stephanie said...

ADORABLE!!! Those pics are GREAT! Heck...why dont they make the whole calender of those 4precious babies!?!?! I would buy it! Keep up the good work! You amaze me everytime I read your blog!

Kristen said...

So sweet! I love the flower pictures! They are so precious!
I bet you are glad you are done with those bands. Your kids are soooo precious!

By the way----Dr. Tabor is doing an Amnio on Wednesday (27th) and if their lungs are developed. He wants to take them at 34 weeks (Almost 35)-because of the Placenta Previa. We are nervous that they will be in the hospital. Let us know about any tips you have when it comes to babies in the hospital and having a c-section.
Thanks so much for all the advice!

Hello! I'm the "to-be-father" of quads and your blog got trickled down to me through some friends. I've enjoyed reading your blog this evening as I start to think about our future! My wife has been in the hospital in Champaign, IL for over 30 days now. We reside in Bloomington/Normal IL. We are officially 28 weeks at midnight! Exciting for us! We've developed our own blog as well:

www.michaelsquads.blogspot.com

I look forward to referencing your blog for some good ideas as we go through similiar stages. God Bless!

ARiley said...

I'm thinking at least one of those pictures will definantely get you a spot in the calendar. How absolutely adorable!!! I love the one with Ben eating the flower!!!

Karen said...

Those should BE the calendar! So cute, no way will they not be chosen. The multiples factor ALONE should get them fixed not to mention being ADORABLE!

Melissa said...

OH MY WORD!!!! Could they seriously be any more adorable? I can't wait to show Keaton the pics of Miss Pris all dolled up in her flower gitup! And how about Mr. Ben posin' so well in his flowered headpiece? You for sure will make the calendar with those!

Megann Cain said...

Suz--
These are just precious--they are the cutest pictures--I think they should make the ENTIRE calendar of the quads--don't you? I'm amazed at your strength, your creativity, and how happy these babies are--you guys are rockin' and rollin'--God is so good.

Sooz said...

Oh. My. Goodness. Just when we thought they couldn't get any more cute! The boys so need the flower pictures as their Senior High baby pictures..lol!
They are sure to make the cover of the magazine! I can't wait to hear the news.

Suzanne, I love the pictures. Thank you so much for sharing them with me and please tell Joe, your Mom, Dad, and all extended family I said hello.

Love, Doreen

ps., How can I post a photo with my comments so you will know who this is?

Shauna said...

You are soooo making the calendar!

Williams' bunch said...

Love the pictures. They are so cute!
I love Ben eating the flower....too cute.

The McCarter Family said...

OMG! Ofcourse they will make the calendar - and I wouldn't be surprised if they made the cover! I've recently discovered your blog through some friends that told me about your amazing story. I'm completely obsessed with reading all the way back to the days that you were first expecting your little wonders! I have a little one that is just a few weeks younger than the quads and also a 2year old and I cannot even imagine how you have time to do all that you do! God bless you - they are absolutely darling!

Brittany said...

the one of ben eating the flower cracks me up- i WANT to meet this kids!

Sandee said...

Your babies should get the full calendar-they are so cute.

Are the sleeping all night and how much help are you getting now from family and friends?

Jennifer :) said...

I don't see how they COULDN'T choose your kiddos to be on the calendar! So precious! :)

(It will be interesting to see how the boys respond to the flower pics when they get older, lol. My brother is irritated with my mom just for dressing him up in bright colors when he was little, haha!)

Suz - I can't help but wonder what Joe thinks about Sav being a "Calendar Girl"...I mean topless and everything. What a reputation she'll have! =)
Thank you booochooos for your encouragement yesterday - You are a BLESSING! How are you holdin' up, quad sista?
Sendin' my love and 8 kisses for your little flowers (2 a piece),
Quatro Mama

Mary said...

i looked at the 2008 calendar and there is no way your kiddos won't make the 2009 edition!

i think we have a distant "friend" connection...your blog has been passed around the girls in my bible study group. your family's story is so exciting and inspiring and i love seeing the updates. thank you!

Jessica said...

OMG!! They are so adorable. My triplets had to wear helmets also. They will for sure make the calendar!! Who could say no to those faces!!!!

Good Lord, thank you for the laugh! Hey, you have 4 kids, you should get a whole season on the calendar!

Joy said...

How could you not make the cover with such adorable babies??? There is no question...your kiddos will be in that calendar! If not, your fellow bloggers will petition on your behalf! :)

Kimberly said...

Not creative...are you kidding me? YOu are hillarious! I could just eat up those little sunflowers. How could they not all be covermodels?!!!
Love the pics!

CBJR Family said...

Great pictures! I love them! How can they NOT make the calendar??

Found your blog through the Murray blog, I've been a lurker for SEVERAL months and have never commented until now, couldn't resist when I saw those flower pics!

Jaimie said...

I haven't stopped by in a while and I can't believe how big the babies are!! They are all so cute. I love the flower pictures. Their little faces just warm you heart!

boysmum2 said...

They are adorable

JAMIE'S CREW said...

Suz and Joe - just wanted to say that everytime I look at that top picture of savannah in her bumbo seat with the blower headpiece on and she is just chuckling with laughter - I just smile and fall in love with her!

All the babies are cute of course - but I love to see the unbridled laughter of a baby like that!

So cute!

Take care!

Melissa said...

Hi Suz,

I know this was an old post and I'm not sure if you're still reading comments this far back, but I have to ask -- how did you get such an amazing black background? The Quads literally pop from the page and it's gorgeous!!

~Melissa :)

Suzanne said...

melissa! so funny you should ask! i went to target and bought a black bed sheet! that's it! i know its pretty hi-tech! ;) try it out..

Melissa (harleyjean@aol.com) said...

How funny! I would have never thought about doing that. :)

I have been reading your blog for a couple of months now, and I want you to know that it has brought me so much comfort and joy during my own struggle with infertility. I just completed my first Clomid/IUI cycle this month and am currently in the middle of my "two week wait." Reading your posts and seeing the pictures of your beautiful babies has brought me hope that one day God will bless me with a child(ren) of my own. I used to feel so alone, but I have realized that there is a whole extended "family" out there that understands exactly how I'm feeling and what I have been going through. Thank you for sharing your journey (and successes!) with the rest of us. You are a bright source of inspiration for everyone. :)
