Our Wednesday in Quadville......

Every Wednesday morning Louis Dean says, "We get to see the babies today!!"
We have our coffee, do our reading and then we head to Dallas!

I nearly ALWAYS take a picture of Granddad holding all his quadlings!!

The fish pillow I scored at Goodwill was a big hit!!

The girls love to wear my earrings so I took extra pairs with me yesterday!

That Trystan is adorable!!! They ALL are!!!

Kailey spends lots of time sitting in Granddad's lap!
Normally she doesn't stay still for long - unless Granddad is around!

I am always so impressed with Amber's 'Golden Schedule!' They all four take good naps every day after lunch. Yesterday I took one too!! We went upstairs to get them from their cribs and put sweaters and mittens on then wrapped them in blankets to go for a walk.

It was a bit nippy but we ALL enjoyed it......
except for Granddad who didn't bring his coat and was being rather wimpy about it!

Kailey was especially photogenic!

They took their little snacks cups with them and I had a bottle of water with me.

All three girls kept their mittens on while eating their crackers!

When we got home and took the mittens off their little hands were still warm!
Not so with Harrison who had his off before we even got to the sidewalk!

I do so love seeing LIFE through the eyes of children!

Logan is the little homemaker!
She stirred the baked beans and helped me place the strips of bacon on top.

This picture is a bit deceiving.....
Logan hasn't managed the FOLD yet but she's pretty good at UNstacking them!!

Kailey has been calling me MeeMAW!!
I bet I'll answer to WHATEVER they want to call me!!!

After dinner Granddad helped me herd them all upstairs where Amber had their bath ready!

Not one of the babies is afraid of the water and they don't mind getting their faces wet!

They LOVE their bath times!!!
Amber has taught them to sit on their towels once we get them out of the tub and wait their turn to get dressed for bed.

We ended our day with a nice glass of wine and visiting with Amber.
These days are going by so quickly!
The quads will be two years old soon!
HOW did that happen so fast??

Have y'all heard about the Fugate Quadruplets?
This is from their Facebook page.......


Quad Squad #kquads
On February 8, 2014 Quadruplets were born to Craig and Kim. Kim found out she was expecting (surprise #1) went to her first Dr visit, found out it was Triplets (surprise #2) then at 28 weeks she went into labor and they couldn't stop it. In the delivery room, they delivered 3 babies. Dr and Nurse said, "There's more feet" (surprise #4). They were blessed with 4 sweet and tiny baby girls.

They were all 14"
Baby A 2lbs 1oz
Baby B 2lbs 5oz
Baby C 2lbs 8oz
Baby D 2lbs 6oz

They are all identical! Can you imagine??
They all have names starting with 'K.'
Three of the baby girls are gaining weight and doing well.
Little Kayleigh is on an Oscillator and they hope and pray her lungs will get stronger.
I am reminded of our own Harrison whose lungs were so delicate 10 days after birth that he was hanging onto life with every breath.
Prayers made all the difference.
Praying for Kayleigh......

Linda, The quads are growing, I just find it had to believe they are almost two. Daniela's little quote is so right, isn't it? Your relationship with those grandchildren is precious. I love seeing the film clips. Take care of yourself. xoxo,Susie

that must be very unusual to have 4 identical... i love the tub scene and the one with all four in LD lap... i am trying to imagine what he will look like when they are 3 or 4 years old and all sit in his lap....

They are eating beans and miracle grow. We noticed all over again how big they are getting! So adorable...Trystan has a smile so bright, Logan so seriously helping, Kailey with that twinkle in her eye, and Harrison so handsome. What a happy group and I always enjoy reading how Amber is training them so well.

Interesting to learn about the Fugate quads. Saying a prayer that all will be well.

Your quadlings are precious miracles. Every time I hear of a premature, or multiple birth, I think of those four little miracles and pray.
I love your Wednesdays too!

Oh my goodness, the precious babies have all grown out of baby stage and are all toddlers now, how adorable each one of them are. They're almost two already? Where does time slip away on us?

Have a wonderful weekend Linda!
