Happy Half-Birffday!!!

Wow...6 months ALREADY??? My widdle babies are gettin SOOOOO BIG! (sniff, sniff) Where are my teenie, tiny, infants??? I just told someone today: (okay, this is reeeeally cheesy but...) Joe and I are falling more and more in love with these kiddos everyday! They just get cuter & cuter and give the most amazing smiles and chuckles! We LOVE how they are starting to look at each other and interact a little...it is just too much fun!

Happy 6 Months, Baby Steece Quads!!!

Look how serious Drew looks (stripes, remember?)
"Now Savannah, you MUST be on your BEST behavior for mommy..."


Just four best friends, sitting around for a little mid-morning chat!


"Sister...that bow is hideous...really..."


Silly little munchkins...look at their little round noggins! Only about 2-3 weeks left in the bands! WOO HOO!!!


My five little babies all lined up in a row (in their birth order, starting with Shiloh...the first-born, of course!)

Get ready for 4 of the cheeeeziest looking grins you have ever seen! I LOVE it!

I've really enjoyed reading about your family! Thanks so much for sharing this with the rest of the world!!!

Chelle said...

Love the pics. They make me smile. I also love that Drew and E look like they are holding hands in that last pic. The grins are not cheesy at all...they are precious. They command a return smile just as big!

They are absolutely adorable!! Love the smiles! So cute! Happy 6 month birthday Steece babies! I also really admire what you do every day! I could not imagine raising 4 babies all at once!

Jessica V said...

They are sooo beautiful, and look so happy.

joan's musings said...

Altho it has been over 40 years, I still remember that feeling of daily being more and more in love with that baby of mine....and it doesn't stop--that wonderful parental love for our children.

Yours look well-loved, adorable, and thriving!! Precious, precious babies with wonderful parents.

I can't believe it is six months that I have been enjoying your blog. I can't remember how I found it, but have been thrilled to part of the group who follows your progress.

It is especially a blessing for me to know of your reliance on our God as you seek to raise these four precious little lives for his glory!!

The Lord bless you and keep you both in the busy days ahead as these sweet babies continue to develope into the people that God can..and will use to His glory.

Brittany said...

OH MY GOSH, SUZANNE!!! They are so stinkin' cute I can't even stand it! I love them! Happy Half Birthday little precious ones!

Corrie said...

This is probably my favorite post EV-ER!
Love those cuties!!

Anonymous said...

You 2 have to be 2 of the luckiest people around!! They are absolutely gorgeous, get them in some magazines, ads whatever immediately :)

Collegegirl said...

Oh my goodness! The quads are so big and so cute!! They just lighten my world with those cute smiles!!!

Triplet Mama said...

They are soooo beautiful!!!! Oh my gosh!

Melissa Dovel said...

They are soooo cute!!! I just told my husband to come over to the computer so I could hit him they are just that cute (no worries I tell him this all the time about our own kids). I can really see Ethan and Andrew looking identical now more than ever. Percious babies and just as precious parents. Words of wisdom that someone spoke to me when my oldest was a baby and I always pass it along. What ever age and stage your kids are at make that your new favorite!

Blessings to the Steece's

Jenny said...

Love the pictures of them sitting around in a circle. You have beautiful babies!

Ashhog said...

Happy 6 months!! They are cuties!!

Anonymous said...

Your kids are the cutest thing ever!! HAPPY 6 MONTHS. Their heads are getting so cute and round. BTW I had to have surgery to fix my head when I was 11 months old. I glad you dont have to do that and that the bands will fix their precious little heads

Anonymous said...

Wow. Those are the CUTEST pictures. What adorable babies. I know that has to be so much work because there are days that just having one can be challenging but the blessing that they are to you and them always having each other has to pale in comparison to that work. You are so blessed!!!!!!Thanks for sharing. Hope you keep sharing your story.

Michael and Hannah said...

I can't believe how big they're getting! It's been fun to see joy manifest itself in your life through these sweet little babies!

Amanda's News said...

CUTE CUTE CUTE!!!!! They are getting so big:) And their heads are lookin' great! They have beautiful smiles!

JAMIE'S CREW said...

Gorgeous!! Such personality! But then, how could they have anything less personality wise with Suz and joe as the parents! Great pictures. Thank you so much for sharing the quads 1/2 birthday with us!

Barbara Manatee said...

Happy 6 month birthday Steece babies! They are so dang adorable! My twins are 14 months and I totally agree...every day you find something else to love about them. It only gets better. Our two are at a very cuddly stage and their hugs and snuggles are the best!

Jessica, Myron and Rylie said...

WOW!!! I cant believe it has been six months since they were born. Thank you for allowing us to follow your journey and enjoy your family. Anytime you want to bring those kiddos to CO you just let us know....

Leah said...

Happy 1/2 Birthday Babies! They look precious!

Let me tell you, you're not cheesy! The falling in love with them never stops!

The Mannings said...

LOVE the new pics. Each one of those babies is absolutely ADORABLE!!!! Time really does fly by, doesn't it? My oldest turned five last Saturday (sniff sniff). I wish blogging had been around when she was a baby so I'd be able to look back now and remember so many things that I am ashamed to say I've already forgotten. Oh well....

It's amazing how much bigger they are. They sure don't look like those tiny little babies you brought home! Thanks for sharing your babies with us!

Danda said...

Now that you are half way to the real birthday, any ideas for the big day for the quads? That will be a wild 1st birthday with 4. Glad to see all is well.

Danda

Kristi said...

Those smiles are worth everything, aren't they?

Leah said...

Happy 1/2 Birthday!
I love the pics. It is great to be able to see how they growing!!!
Thank you for sharing!!

SC said...

Please please please tell me you're going to post comparison before and after shots once they are done with the bands. Their little heads do look so different already. I can only imagine seeing the images side by side to compare!

lifeofadancer312 said...

Wow! I can't believe the quads are 6 months old already! What cute smiles!

cdj said...

I love it! They actually have faces now...okay that is supposed to be a good thing. You know what I mean, I know. Infants are so hard to "get to know" because they haven't developed what they look like yet, but I can DEFINITELY see you and Joe in these four! I love the pics in their chairs...I guess they are liking them more now, huh?

Amy said...

The bumbo seats are hilarious! One in every color- I can't wait to see that quad stroller now!

Courtney said...

yeah for awesome pics! what sweet babies...E and Drew look SO much alike...i am glad their bands are working!

Jaclyn said...

OK- you don't know me and I have never commented before but oh my...your babies are ADORABLE!! I cannot contain my smile looking at these pictures. LOVE THEM!!! Your family is just too cute!

Burkett Quad Squad said...

T-Totally SO super cute! I love it! Happy 6 months! yay! we'll be there in 7 days! Hasn't it flown by...although i know you've probably had just a few days that you thought would never end and you're just praying for Joe (and in my case Brian) to get home!--i know i have:) but those days are there just to make us that much stronger mommas!! I love seeing your babies! I'm serious here in a few years we (all the quadmamas) should meet somewhere fun and have a good time!just think of all the kiddos!?!?
Jenny

Casey's trio said...

LOVE the pictures...time has flown by. Can't believe it has been 6 months already! The kiddos look awesome and SO very happy. The best part is that it contimues to get better every day. Mine now ask for hugs and kisses which melts my heart everytime:)

damien said...

wow there all growing up so fast , i love reading your blog have been keeping up with ya for months now . hope you have a great weekend

Ashley said...

Suz,

Your pictures always make me smile or laugh. You are doing an amazing job with these little guys. You have been blessed no doubt, but they have been equally blessed to have you and Joe as parents.

My husband and I suffer from infertility and reading your blog gives me hope that maybe one day we will be as blessed as you and Joe were!

BTW -- Ben has the cutest SMILE ever!

lynne uk said...

Lovely pictures,thank you for showing us - and Happy Half-Birthday to Ben, Savannah, Ethan and Drew!

Chris said...

Happy HALF BIRTHDAY STEECE QUADS! They are so freakin' cute! I love how much Ben and Sav look alike yet he's so boy and she's SO GIRL! Ethan & Andrew are gonna be LOOKERS too! Boy, I feel for ya'll when the kids hit those puberty years. Your phone will be ringing off the hook!!! Is Drew home? Is Ethan there? I can hear it now. Loving them in their bumbo seats too. I just had so much fun with the bumbo when Lindsay would sit in it. Wait until their legs start chunkin' up and they won't fit in it anymore....it will freak you out!
Have a great weekend!

Hilary said...

Wow, they are SO cute and are getting SOOO big! Their smiles are so precious...you are one lucky mama!

Jennifer :) said...

They are getting cuter every time you post pictures! I love it! I also love how big Savannah's eyes always are! They're all beautiful! :)

Kelly said...

Happy 1/2 b-day!! You are cuter every day!!

Where do you get Sav's bows?? Must. get. some!!

Katelyn said...

I can hardly believe they are four months old! Hooray! I love the little comments you made, especially the one about her bow - it's adorable. I am so excited for you and Joe that you have four, happy healthy babies! I especially love the last one of Savannah, she looks like she is totally working it. It's brilliant!

Williams' bunch said...

They are so precious. How cute. I love Savannah's bows!!! :-)

It is amazing how quickly the time flies!! My baby boy will be a year on Tuesday-it seems unreal.

It is so much fun to watch them grow and change (and learn to do more things). I'm sure it is even more fun to watch four at once....
You are truly blessed. :-)

Jodi said...

Oh. My. Word. Those are my favorite pics yet!!! The little "circle of friends" in their Bumbos... and the smiley smiley pics... ABSOLUTELY PRECIOUS! You guys have beautiful children. Really. Too too cute. It just isn't fair to other babies. :)

Krystyn said...

Their smiles must absolutely melt you! They are perfect. Thanks for sharing the love you have for your family.

ASHENFELTERS said...

They are so cute!I have been following your blog since before they were born and even I can't believe they are already six months!It does fly by doesn't it?My twins are 2 1/2 and I really feel like is was just months ago that they were born!(most days anyway, some just seem SOOO long, I'm sure you can relate!:)Happy 1/2 Birthday little ones!

Jennifer said...

Great pics! I love the Bumbo seat ones. It looks like Savannah is leading a board meeting of some kind. Thanks for being so faithful to blog. I can't believe that they are six months already...that has flown for us in blog world too!

Kristen said...

I have been following your blog for a long time just because we have mutual friends. I also had trouble getting pregnant, but we had to do IVF. Clomid never worked. I had Endo also. I can't believe how much a year can make a difference. I understand completely. We are having twins and I saw that you had a pediatrician that specializes in multiples and was wondering if you could tell me her/his name. We are delivering at Harris Downtown and live in the area. Your sweet babies are precious!!!!! My blog is www.caseyandkristen.blogspot.com.
Thanks!

Phillips Family said...

Those bumbo pictures are about the cutest things I have ever seen...Ever!

Lindsey said...

Those pictures are adorable... But I must say that I do love the picture of Ben looking at Savannah's bow with a look disapproval. Thank you for sharing your family with everyone.

Happy half birthday to you and your children.

The Bryan/CS Eagle has an article about a set of quads (3 boys,1 girl)attending A&M. I immediatley thought of you.

Amanda said...

You have to tell me where you get Savannah's bows from? They are freaking great!

Suzanne said...

awww...thanks for the sweet comments about miss prissy's bows! we actually received a box of of bows (every color you could imagine)
in the mail from one of my (never met) blogger buddies! so, i'm sorry...i have no idea where she got them!

mrsvanoven said...

Those are ADORABLE!! You guys have such gorgeous children, and in no way do they look like they were born early, or were multiples, they look to me exactly how my kids looked at 6 months, singletons, full term!! Good job mama!! ;)

Stacia said...

Those pictures were great! Love "circle time"! Happy 1/2 Birthday babies!!

Harris Boys said...

your foursome are just precious. I love checking in to catch some more pics! Happy Half birthday...they'll be one before you know it!

Anonymous said...

there is a website called
www.gigis.org that has many of the bows.
hope this helps! they are really cute.

The Johnstons said...

What beautiful babies you have! A friend of mine told me to check out your blog saying what an incredible story you have. I must say, I agree. I started reading and didn't stop until the end.... err, beginning. The whole time I was thinking, "She looks so familiar, I can't put my finger on it." Then it hit me. I dragged out a few of my old "Warrior Ways" yearbooks and BAM! There you were! A few classes ahead of me (I was in 2003), but it was a tiny school and I remember faces. Small world, huh? I'm so glad to see you're doing well. I don't know how you do it with FOUR!

Most people call me Lees... said...

They are just too cute! I just got the twins some Bumbo seats - I am hoping that it will help their "NEED" to sit up and watch the world around them! Noah (20 months) keeps them entertained - but they want to be able to sit up and watch!

You are doing a great job! You can tell by those smiles! I am sure that everyday there are little moments that you have to remind yourself that you WILL make it through this day (if not, share the secret because my twins make me think that sometimes!)but you make it seem as though you have it under control 99% of the time. Thanks for having so much fun with them and showing the world that you can be friends and partners with your hubbie instead of at ends once you have kids!

Bethany said...

Happy Half Birthday, kiddos! I love the first picture! The commentaries are hilarious! Congratulations on making it successfully thru the first 6 months! :)

Side question: Where do you get all those beautiful head bows?

Melissa said...

THAT just totally made my day!!! Just LOOK at them!!!! They look sooooo cute all sitting there together. My how far they've come, huh? It just gets better and better. Those smiles could just light up the world.

Kristi said...

I swear they get cuter every day! I LOVE the picture of them all in their bumbo's, SOOO CUTE!!!

Oh, we got Eli and Rowan fitted for their helmets- we pick them up in approx a week. Cool thing is, they come with a design already on them! Eli is getting camo (of course) and Rowan is getting butterflies. I was so excited they came pre-decorated!

Happy 6-month birthday Steece quads!

Suz, thanks for all your encouragement and love this week. It was an AMAZING week, and I can't wait to talk to you about it....Girl, you have SO MUCH to look forward to - this is just THE BEST!

Thank you SO much for sharing your littles with us. They are just ADORABLE!!! The "circle time" pictures are PRICELESS! What a treasure! So glad to see that BEN could follow the conversation and stay awake through it.;) The one of DREW looking so serious as if he is thinking what you put into words is so ding dang cute, I could NOT stop smiling. Then in that same picture it looks as if ETHAN is looking at her too, like he is thinking "ARE YOU LISTINING TO DREW?" Then BEN with a look at DREW, like he is thinking, "YOU TELL HER DREW!" Poor baby girl SAVANNAH, she will always have "her boys" bossin her around. Thank heavens for your BEAUTIFUL BOWS darling girl. Thanks again SUZ and JOE for sharing your JOY with us.

Happy 6 months! Love the "cheeses". Sav has her daddy's eyes I think (for now!) ;)

Deanna said...

Happy 1/2 Birthday. I guess that means we are 1/2 to all my kids birthdays, since they are August babies as well. I can not believe how big they are getting. Life is getting ready to change drastically for you guys. First comes the crawling and they can crawl pretty fast, so watch out. Those times are fun. Watching new milestones that you never believed you would see always made me smile, and I am sure it will for you guys as well.

Jamie said...

Still love checking in with y'all! Can't believe your sweeties are six months!!! They are too cute! Thanks again for sharing your lives with us. :)

Hi Suz,
I don't know you, but my twin sister showed me your quad blog :) You have such an adorable family & I thought I would comment. I know that me & my twin share such a special bond, I can only imagine your four will have a special bond too. I hope me & my husband can start trying for a baby soon too...I think I have "PCOS" and I don't ovulate right. My sister has the same problems. But, it would be so awesome if we got pregnant together! We will be 27 in May & we are from Arkansas. Becky (my sis)lives in Ft. Worth, Texas with her hubby & I live in Las Vegas, Nevada with mine now. Anyways, I love reading your blog!

Forgot to mention how I just melted looking at them, because I can really see you in them (and Joe, too, of course). It is so neat to see little features of one of my closest friends in her little babies!

I just found your blog and I must say...my heart melted seeing your babies sitting around in their bumbos. You are so blessed to have such cute little ones!! It is so true that you fall more in more in love each day. Today you think, "How could I possibly love you anymore than I already do?" But tomorrow, it just happens!!

VERY cute!! I love their smiles - not cheesy at all. :)

WOW! you guys are amazing! thank you for all the sweet comments! we are truly blessed...

***INFO ABOUT SAVANNAH'S BOWS!!*** my blogger buddy, julie, emailed me the information about the bows (she is the one who had sent me an entire box of bows!) The ebay seller's store is http://stores.ebay.com/bows-n-stuff
you can find lots of cute bows there!! happy shopping!

Jennifer said...

What great pictures!! (Don't I say that every time?)

When the bands are gone, will you post before and after shots? It's hard to tell in pictures what I'm sure you see in person, and I'd love to see the effect the head bands have on the babies' heads!

Anonymous said...

Wow. I'm so in love with your blog and the freakin adorable pictures. My son is the same age as the quads. They are a joy to see. Thanks for sharing your adventure.
