WOW!

OH MY GOODNESS GRACIOUS!

I always knew I had the BEST blogger buddies in the world! You really out-did yourselves. What incredibly creative people you are! SHEESH!

It is going to take me a while to get through all of these. They were ALLLLLLL so creative and FANTASTIC! You sure don't make it easy for a gal---Bear with me! I will put a blog poll where you can choose from my favorites as soon as I can...

This is a BIG week for us!

Today, I'm taking Sav back to the doctor to make sure she is clear of infection and to schedule her renal sonogram/etc.

Thursday, Feb. 28th marks the ONE YEAR anniversary when we found out we were having quads! (Oy vey, that was a fun post! READ HERE!)

Saturday, Mar. 1st is our FIVE YEAR ANNIVERSARY!!! WOO HOO! (I could write a WHOLE long post about the man I love--and will try to) Joe planned a romantic weekend getaway in Austin for the two of us. **Big thanks to the Steeces for watching over our little ones while we are away...and for Linda and the volunteers who will be staying over! We wouldn't be able to EVER go out if it wasn't for them!**

Sunday, Mar. 2nd is Joe's 29th birthday! (Yes, I know...he's an old man, but I won't tell him!)

SO....lots going on! Lots to do! I will be back as soon as I can! ;)

Hey, I've been following your blog since the babies were born. I took some time today to look through some of your older posts and found that ya'll are in the Arlington area and that Joe works for Mouser in Mansfield. Do you mind sending me an email I could email you at? I would love to email you and ask some questions. Thanks!

Happy Anniversary of finding out about the Quads! And 5 years of marriage! And 29 years of Joe!

Hi! I've been a fan of your blog for several months now and wanted to de-lurk! The suspense with choosing a new blog name is killing me! Congrats on all your big days coming up!!!

Collegegirl said...

This month is seemingly full for you! So glad that the babies are getting so big and strong! Happy anniversery!!!
Congrats for all the milestones!

Happy Anniversary week! My husband and I have learned the importance of getting away from our little one every once in a while. It's easy to lose sight of being wife when we are so busy being mommy. I hope Savannah's doing better.

Devin said...

Suz,

I really enjoyed reading the post when you found out about the quads...I can't imagine the feelings that day! I would have panicked myself, but can you imagine now having it any other way?

Good luck with Sav at the appt., and have a wonderful week enjoying your anniversary/Joe's birthday. Judging from the number of comments on the last post, I am surely not alone in saying that I will look forward to your coming back to the blog world when you are done!

You guys are my heros.

Wow...what a difference a year makes!! Oh, and happy anniversary and (early) birthday to Joe!

Chad said...

Blog lurker here, but I just wanted to say that I have been keeping up with you guys through your whole adventure and you are such an inspiration. Happy Anniversary and Happy Bday to Joe. Thanks for not calling him old as I will be turning 29 just 10day after him.

Happy Anniversary week!! You "picked" a wonderful day to discover you were having quads-- my birthday ;) Enjoy your time in Austin :)

Deanna said...

Happy Anniversary! Have a fun weekend. That is great that you guys are getting a weekend away! Happy Birthday Joe, don't let Suz give you a hard time about turning 29!! I turn 34 on the 10th and I feel old, having quads tends to age you rather fast. LOL

Yeah for all the goodness that is going on in your life. On the 28th it will be 2 years to the day I found out I was having twins. That day was both scary and exciting for us as well. Have fun on your weekend getaway.

Hey sweetie!

I only know about you all through my sister-in-law, but I admire your joy and enthusiasm with your lovely family! It's a blessing to read about. ANyway, i know you have a million blog names to read through so I'll just go ahead and add to the deal, just to make it a wee bit more exhasperating.

As in, quads and the angle/view of life they give you.

Have fun pickin one out!

God bless you, and know that I have and will continue to pray for you.

Krystyn said...

Wow! So much to celebrate! God is good!

Rick & Jenn Payne said...

I posted a comment, but I'm not sure it went through so I thought I would try it again. I just wanted to say Happy Anniversary for your five years of marriage and for finding out about the quads. I'll never forget the day we found out about ours. I remember watching Rick's face and watching the blood drain out of it. PRICELESS!! I laughed a lot that day and talked to GOD a LOT! We're so glad that the Lord decided to bless us with such a wonderful miracle and I'm sure you guys are too. Your family is BEAUTIFUL. Thank you for sharing your life with us. We love to keep up with your blog! God Bless, Jenn - momma of the herd

Erika von said...

I think you are amazing people to life the lives you live!!! How exciting! I have one little precious girl (with cranial plageocephly & cranial band) and you give me strength when I read your blog! Hang in there!!

Brittany said...

so, what is it like to have over 200 comments on your blog. Suz, you're a celebrity! I was just thinking about things today... can you believe all the kids we all have? I mean, our Fort Clark days are OVER. Sad, but true. But won't it be fun when we all get together one fine day... and all we'll be doing is running around after all the kiddos. I hope that day arrives! It would be a shame to not give our generation a chance to have as much fun as we had... ha!

Hi Suz,

I just found out we are having quads yesterday!! I will be using your blog on a daily basis to get ready for this:)

Suz,
How did they know that the identical twins you would've had regardless of the Clomid? Also, you said Joe 'was' a twin...does that mean he isn't anymore?

Carrie Foster said...

Happy Anniversary (wedding and babies) and Happy Birthday, Joe!
We love you guys!

Allison said...

Wow! I ran across your blog while blog surfing and am SO impressed at your level of sanity! I have 11 mo twins and have barely even survived thus far. You and your hubby are SUPERPARENTS! Congratulations!

megan said...

March 1st is my 5 year anniversary too!!! Happy Anniversary!!!

Hey Suzanne,

Long time reader of your blog. Don't know if you are aware or not, but today when I checked your blog there was an "inappropriate" advertisement at the top for hot college girls. With videos of girls kissing, etc. I know that you are not personally responsible for this, but thought you might want to take it off of your blog - yuck! Not too family friendly!
Sincerely, big fan of the steeces

Gen McNulty said...

Oh Suz!
Just read the day you found out and SOOOOOO related to that post! Although.. I had four sacs... and a LOT more medication! :):) You are strong and wonderful parents. You know I love you guys! Happy bday to Joe (29 isn't so bad- I'll be 30 in August)!! Happy 5th too! Our 5th is in July! We have FAR too much in common... wish we lived closer. Have a great get away!
XOXO
Gen :)

Gen McNulty said...

kristin,

the egg that split (making identical babies) would have spilt without clomid. Clomid just stimulates your ovaries.. it can't make them divide. With all the twins in Suz and Joe's pool it was bound to happen.

Melanieshea said...

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!! Hope you guys are having an awesome weekend getaway!! You two sure deserve it!!! Oh, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOE (TOMORROW)!!!

Tracy said...

I met a girl at the Youth Ministry conference in Atlanta who gave me the address of your blog. She was pregnant and I was telling her how I was on Clomid. She proceeded to tell me about you and the quads and I FREAKED OUT..haha. I even told me RE about you and how I was concerned that this would happen to me. We just had our first ultrasound(we got pregnant the first round too) and there is only ONE baby! Your babies are beautiful and you and your husband must be so proud!

addicted said...

Hello. I just found your blog today. I went back and read about your pregnancy and the birth of your quads. What a wonderful story! You are a wonderful Mom and I look forward to reading more about your beautiful children!

Happy Anniversary!

The Gerwer Babies said...

So sorry to bother you on your vaca!! Bad quad mom!!
Email me that picture of us at dinner when you get a chance (hehehe). Please :)
Hope you had a great weekend.

I am a lurker...I admit it! Suz, thanks for letting us lurk. And I want to tell you...you are beautiful!! I think what you do for other multiple moms is your ministry and your beauty...kind heart, loving words shines through it all! You are beautiful on the outside AND inside. God bless you and your sweet family.

I was wondering if you were a stay at home mom now or did you go back to work?

Jamie Chitty said...

Hi Suzanne!! I found your blog through other Harding girls. You are such a trooper and deserve mom of the year with having 4 babies. I don't know how you do it.

Kelly said...

Hey Suzanne...this is Kelly McCarver (Maddux), I'm friend with Adrianna and know the McCalls from Columbus....anyway I love you story.

Well there goes my night! I found your page from your web designer friend as she is going to help me with a new page. Yeah, I found it around 5 pm and it's almost 11 pm. :) Except for some breaks to get my kids to bed, I've done nothing but sit on my couch and read your amazing story!! Wow! I am an identical twin and also had a baby in nicu for a while so I was drawn in from the start! Oh, and I have my own 'Ben', his name is Carter and he is a hoot! Ben's spunk will only get more amusing! Watch his closely! Ha! I'm so glad you are blogging it all--'online scrapbooks' are amazing aren't they? God Bless!

Burkett Quad Squad said...

Hey Suz
I hope you had an AMAZING weekend with all the celebrations! WOO HOO!Can't wait to hear about Sav and how everyone is doing! Happy 7 mos...a few days late! I can't believe mine will be 7 mos in 4 days! wow! Only a few short months til 1 year! i think Gen M, Jen M and I with all of our collective kids (all 16 of them including yours) and hubbies should make a trip down to TX--and visit! at least it's not snowy and cold there like it is here in stinky IN! we love you guys!

Becky said...

Hi Suzanne ~ I looked for your e-mail address but couldn't find it. Could you drop me a line when you get a chance? Either at deepmuckbigrake@yahoo.com or becky_handsfull@yahoo.com. Thanks!

kristin said...

Hey Suz...not sure if you remember me or not (current nursing student at harding). We talked a while back, and I told all the teachers hi for you. I update them on yall from time to time :) Anyway, I was driving the boring drive home from Searcy today, and I occupied my time trying to think of names for the blog. I may be too late but I thought about a few.

4-ever Joyfully BleSSED... or

4-ever BlESSeD

I capitalized J for Joe, B for Ben, S for Suz, S for Sav, E for Ethan, and D for Drew. Can you tell I was bored on the way home?? Shiloh is left out... I tried to think of a way to include another S but I'm not that creative.

I actually thought it was really neat how when you spell Blessed it includes all the letters of your precious angels. I'm corny like that I guess, ha.

Anyway, I also thought of...

4 peas in a pod, what gifts from God! (maybe kinda corny??)

un4gettable

I'm not so sure about those last two. Anyway...just thought I'd share :)

Hope all of the anniversary and birthday celebrations were a blast!

Oh, and I'm in Dr. Clayton's Peds class right now..not sure if you had her, or remember her much. All I'm gonna say is that it is fun fun, haha.

Kristi said...

Love the new format! I am jealous!

ASHENFELTERS said...

oooooo! The new layout it totally cute! Love It!!

Elizabeth said...

I love it!!!! You guys are so Cute!!!!!!!!!!

The Nowling's said...

Hi
I have been following you guys for a while. I am not sure how I first found your blog, but I watched and waited for your little angels to arrive. I wanted to check and see how Sav's test went. My 7 week old has Hydronephrosis (stage III) and he had the catheter test done as well as an ultrasound. At this point they see no reason for the Hydronephrosis (no reflux or blockage) but he still has it. We will just repeat ultrasounds and see what happens I guess. Hope all turns out well.
