I'm a big kid now!
What an AMAZING start to 2010!!
We hope everyone had a wonderful New Years. Drew, Brian and I spent the evening with our good friends and neighbors Eric, Katrina, Kiersten and Nolan. The kids danced to Nick Jr. songs and chased each other around the house. It was a good time had by all (we all felt our age by choosing to stay in!!).
Maddox, Parker, Emma, and Jack decided it was time to start eating from a bottle and move from their isolettes into open cribs. It was exciting to see them take this next step. Emma and Parker should be home within two weeks. Maddox and Jack won't be far behind them. Maddox is doing well with the bottle feedings, he tires easily and is sometimes unable to finish it. Jack is having trouble keeping his body temperature high enough to stay in an open bed. He will try an open bed again in 24 hours. It's great to go into the NICU and see them holding their own...no big alarms, very few wires to be hooked to, and starting to look like chubby little babies.
Drew has been doing well with potty training. He is telling us when he has to go. He's also learned how to climb to high places like the counter top and on top of his laundry basket while picking boogers! He keeps us on our toes and makes us laugh.
I can imagine the chaos of having two year old quads...it will be a trip!!
Love to all!!
