Five Month Updates.

Can you believe they're five whole months old today? It hardly seems possible to me. Having a front row seat to watch them grow and change every day has been one of the greatest privileges of my life. I continue to be blessed and amazed by them and the really cool little people they already are.

A while back we began to see smiles, but in the past month smiles have developed into full laughter. It's hard to hear them laugh and try not to laugh myself. It's truly that infectious. This month also brought us the unexpected joy of sleeping through the night. Big thanks to the babies for this one. The extra sleep has been life changing!

I have done a good job of keeping up with my goal of posting at least one update per day on our Facebook page, but there were just so many cool moments to share this month that I decided to flood you with a bunch here all at once.

As always, thank you for your continued prayers for our family. We have been blessed beyond any measure we could have imagined. I knew before that God is good, and didn't doubt His blessings, but since the arrival of these precious miracles, I most often think of Him as my God of extravagant goodness and blessing. Like the saying says, "if you think my hands are full, you should see my heart."

Nap time for Sweet Micah.

We finally got over our colds. Andy and I got so tired of wearing masks in the house, but I guess they worked because we never gave the cold back to any of the babies!

We get told often that Micah and Marin look alike, as do Becker and Roland. I wonder how many times in the next couple years we'll get asked if we have two sets of twins?

Feeding time! My sweet quad mom friend Becky took this picture. She said that I was going to look back and realize that I had thousands of pictures of the babies but very few with me in them. I'm sure she's right.

I told her she looked ridiculous in this thing, but she insisted. Diva.

Shameless pandering. I think we all know who will be the politician in this family.

My blue eyed boys are full of giggles these days.

We were a big hit among Packers fans this month. We can't wait for April when the Fearsome Foursome makes their first trip to Green Bay and Lambeau Field.

I didn't put the blanket over his mouth but he sure does look cute.

Sweet Micah melts my heart.

Roland will play happily in his seat for a long time, but when he's done, he's done!

Can anyone tell yet that Roland enjoys the spotlight?

We spend lots of time playing on the couch. No one is rolling yet, but I think we're close, so we spend more and more time playing on the floor.

More diva.

And just when you think she's the cutest baby girl ever, she does this.

Micah took advantage of some play time at the doctor's office.

I have read that eye color can change until they are about a year old, so there is still time, but Roland is bluer than ever.

New friends.

Definitely our ham, Roland.

Everybody is doing great at tummy time, though sometimes they get lazy and fight it. 

"Dude, put your tongue away. You look ridiculous!"

  I hope that's not picture overload, but there was just so much cute to share this month!

Until next time, love and blessings,
