Post #700

700 posts!
I wrote the first post January 21, 2010 so this begins my fourth year of blogging.

Yesterday, during a lull in the action over in Quadville, I made a run for the Goodwill.
Sometimes you just need to get out in the 'real' world.
My only purchase was this tin of grasses and shells.
I love the colors!

I will take this back home with me next week and put it in our bedroom or maybe Louis Dean's bathroom.
I'm sure he would LOVE more debris in there!

It's been cold down here in the Houston area this week......and WINDY!

Tuesday night Louis Dean and I were sitting on the patio when the wind came in so strong it lifted the canopy  like it was fixing to fly! We quickly lowered it to half mast and that took the wind out of its sails.
There was ice on my windshield this morning and it will be cold again tonight.
Hopefully by the weekend it will be warm enough to 'live' out side again!

The was the scene yesterday morning in the nursery.
Louis Dean sure has a way with these babies!
They clearly adore him as well!

Things are changing in Quadville about as fast as the babies are growing!
They still drink their bottles in the pack and plays where they recline in their boppies.
We then whisk over to the couch where we have the bumbos lined up and ready for the spoon feeding.

Works like a charm!
We leave the seats there until after the 11:45 feeding.
Then I add a pillow and take the place of the bumbos while the quads play below me in the Quad Corral!

It's only going to get MESSIER!!

Louis Dean stayed on after Mike came home last night for a little while.
They had to lower the cribs.
Guess you can tell why!
It seems Kailey is the reason!
She was the FIRST to pull up from her bobby and hold onto the edge of the pack and play so they had to drop them all the way down.
She was the FIRST to get OFF the play mat so they had to put up a Quad Corral.
She was the FIRST to pull up on the side of the crib!
Fortunately I was right there in the room with her!

Granddad is off today. He's a guy and they can't handle as much as women can!
He does pretty well with every other day but this week after being OFF for FIVE whole days he was here three days in a row. So today he's hanging out with the critters back in the camper!
I told the babies not to worry! He'll be BACK tomorrow!


  1. Awww that Kailey leading the way! All their expressions are so adorable, but Harrison's are especially cracking me up. He looks like he knows things that you could only guess at! =)

    Hang tough the weekend's coming!

  2. Congrats - I was so lucky to have found you through Debbie. Sandie

  6. Congrats on 4 years of blogging, dont know how I found your blog or Ambers but love love them both.
    Way to go Miss Kailey,pulling up:)
    Love your tin of grasses and shells.

  7. Linda, Nice treasure from the gw. Those babies are the cutest things ever. When LD holds them, they look right him. When those babies start crawling and walking, Amber will not need to join any kind of gym...she will get a major workout. I just had two at once and it was a busy time in my life. It's very cold here today and suppose to be that way for a while. Only 48 more days till spring.:):)xoxo,Susie

  8. Wow! SO many posts. I've been blogging the same length of time and I think I'm around 450! But you have a lot to write about, especially in the last 8 months! I've been reading Amber's blog, she is as sweet as you!

    Cold here, too...10 degrees right now. Brrrrr.


  9. Congratulations to you! 700 posts!! I found you through Sweet Tea. Love those babies and Louis Dean is my kinda guy.

  10. Wow 700!! those babies are growing so fast!! just think when they start walking:)

  11. Congratulations on 700 posts - every one a good one!
    Every one of the photos of the babies with their Granddad Louis Dean is more precious than the one before.

  12. Oh baby, yes! You all have fully graduated to the time when you must always prepare for the NEXT thing, the will be able to do.

    Prepare now. 'Cause that Next Thing will creep up on you.

    Easy, with one. Wow, with 4. -grin-

  13. Those babies are growing so fast. Eight months already! It seems like just yesterday they were born.

    Love your Goodwill find. So pretty.

    Hope LD enjoyed his time with your furbabies.

  14. Looks like that Kailey is going to be a leader!

    Our weather has been windy too. We even had thunder & lightening last night in the middle of a snow storm. It was pretty neat. At one point last night I thought about removing our renter from the camper. I was afraid he was going to get blown off

    It's the weekend friend...You & LD try to catch up on some rest.

  15. Congrats on your 700th post! I really enjoyed reading this post. You have an extremely unique way of writing that I admire.

  16. Way to go, now that's a huge accomplishment to blog this much and be so busy with all you do. Congratulations are in order!!

    Your grandchildren had me laughing out loud, they're each so precious and special, it's Kailey who made me chuckle, she's right on top of things... literally! :-)

  17. Way to go. My blog anniversay is sometime this month. I love the way you write and tell your stories. This will be the beginning of year 3 for me and I doubt I have half as many posts as you.
    Sew enjoy your blog.
