Tiny Travelers

We made it safely to Wisconsin and back with no major meltdowns or emergencies. I was praying the quads would be good on long road trips like Drew was, boy am I one lucky girl. We didn't get out the door as early as we liked, but that's ok. We stopped and picniced under a tree with the babies half way there. We looked like we were moving! The car couldn't have fit one more thing in it anywhere.

We arrived to my parents standing in the driveway waiting for their babies. Emma and Jack were out of their carseats before I could even make it in the house. We had all sorts of visitors come and see us. Drew had a great time playing with everyone. Papa and Drew played in the pool, the babies played toys and watched the dog and Drew run around the house. They also made it out to dinner for the first time. They did great.

Now that we are home, the fun continues with our own toys, and without the hussle and bussle of all the people. The babies are quite cranky and just want to be held all day. It's been somewhat rough. On a positive note though...Jack has said mama two days in a row and they are rolling all over the place. Jack is almost rolling from room to room, and everyone else has just figured out how to get from back to front.

Drew is in need of some attention, so I need to run. After all, daddy is at work making him monies for his piggy bank. :)

Drew has this new thing with monsters. They are appearing everywhere. First it was under his bed. Brian and I thought it was the start of some scary sleepless nights. It turns out he likes to scare them away before he crawls into bed. Then the monsters started appearing in his closet and in with his we went along with it. Today, Drew started walking backwards and said "Mommy help me, monsters are taking me away!" I had to laugh at him. His imagination is cracking me up!! There is never a dull moment in our house when Drew is home.

The quads are monsters too! Hungry little monsters that is. They can down 8 jars of food per feeding. YIKES! They're not even teens yet. This is going to get expensive. They are growning fast. Jack is showing signs of walking...his body is ready, but his little brain is not. They are almost sitting up by themselves. Maddox found his thumb today. I do believe I now have two full time thumb suckers. Parker still enjoys his fist and Emma takes whatever she can get. She's not too picky.

Our house search continues. We have found a few we really like. We still need to sell ours first. Being patient about it is the hard part. We are taking the quads on their first mini vaca. We are heading to Wisconsin for a few days. Hoping for a smooth trip! Hope to post updated pics soon. Super busy with all the stuff going on around us. The quads will be 7 months old on Saturday so hopefully I can get some new ones taken and uploaded. Well the pizza is here...gotta grub!
Love to all!!

Wow, I feel like its been forever and a day since I've posted! Ok, maybe a week...but a lot has happened in that small amount of time. We have moved a majority of things to storage and painted some of the rooms in our house. We've looked online at some homes and have begun the whole financing process. I have nothing to hide, but yet I'm so scared. It's only money right??

Drew is still cracking me up. Two weeks ago he wanted to take the babies back, on Saturday he said "Mommy, we can't leave babies...they cry!" Hahahaha. He is very attached to Daddy's job lately. He always goes to the front door and if Brian's truck isn't in the driveway he tells me, "Daddy at work, make me money, put in piggy bank." Makes me laugh everytime!! He loves riding in Daddy's truck...boys and their toys!!

The quads are great. Learning new things every day. Parker is such a chatter box, Emma is chill for now, Jack is quite the thumb sucker, and Maddox is a mommy hog. He loves to cuddle. All four are almost sitting on their own. Jack is starting to roll all over the house. Parker got in his way today and stopped him from rolling into the dinning room. They are about to make their first trip to Wisconsin...they are ready. Ready to cuddle with Grandma and Papa.

I hear cries of hunger, so that means time for bottles. Possibly a chocolate milk sippy for Drew, and a glass for mommy. Jammie time too!

On the move.

Well...we've done it. We have listed our house for sale. I am in a mad dash to declutter and paint a few things, but trying not to get my underwear in a bunch! I know it's easier said than done.

We decided it was time a few days ago when Brian brought in the feeding table and highchair. He got it all arranged and cleaned up. An hour later we were both looking around thinking the same thoughts. TIME TO MOVE! It will be interesting to see how this will work with the quads and Drew. I think Drew will be ok without a few toys, but how do you hide millions of baby items?? I will most definetly keep you posted on that adventure.

All five kids have been sick this past week, I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Some cranky babies, that's for sure. The cuddling has been nice but I feel like I've done nothing. We did take the kids on a late night walk last night. They really seemed to like it. More so than when we go during the day. It may just have to be a bedtime addition.

Time to run, babies to play with!

Meet the Scotts!

What a week...and it's only Wednesday!

The week started out a little rough. Emma, Maddox and Drew turned out to be sick and wheezing, Emma fell off the couch and landed head first in a bouncy seat and it was HOT! On the positive side though, Jack and Parker discovered their toes, Jack decided he was going to be a full time thumb sucker, and Drew decided he was going to start taking off the babies diapers. Yes, he has learned to take off his own everytime he needs a new one and seeing as he wants to help, he has decided he will take the babies diapers off too. Such a good big brother.

We've spent a lot of time outside the last few days. It's been great, however; the house has been completely neglected. Brian finally decided he was going to clean last night. We decided it was also time to bring in the feeding table and highchair for the quads. They are such good eaters. Loved the sweet potatoes, hated squash. Carrots is our menu today! It has also pushed us into our new home search a little quicker. The feeding table doesn't fit so's making for quite the fire hazzard should we ever have one. We have a plan to go and look at a house today to see if it's a possibility. No we don't even have ours on the market yet...we are looking for a good realtor. We are going to need all the help we can get!!

More exciting news...our update on the quads from the news paper has printed!! I've tried to attach it to the update today. I do hope it works. (I think you click on the title of this post.)

Hugs to all, as I'm off to the doctor will another sick baby!
