The first 2 months

It is so hard to believe that my precious little babies are already 2 months old today! Time feels like it is passing by so quickly! Deciding to stay home and take care of Sophie, Emme, Max, and Brady was not the easiest decision at first, as I love my job as a teacher. However, once they were born, I very quickly realized how much more important it is to stay at home, and enjoy watching them grow. Since James and I are not planning on having anymore kids at this point, I am so glad that I am home to watch their important milestones.

Today was our first outing with 3 kiddos. We had to take Emme, Max, and Brady to the pediatrician for their 2 month check-up and shots. We started preparing last night by buckling in carseat bases, packing the diaper bag, getting bottles ready, setting out outfits, loading one of the double strollers in the van, and making sure all of Brady's oxygen supplies were ready to go. The days of walking out the door with only a purse are over! Overall, things went very smoothly. We carried everyone out to the van, and I climbed in back so I could snap everyone into the carseat base. Thank goodness for carseats that snap right in! It sure saves a lot of time! Once we got to the pediatrician's office, I worked on unhooking everyone from the bases, and handing them off to James. He then snapped Max and Brady into the stroller. I pushed the stroller, and James carried Emme in her carseat. Once Sophie comes home, we will have to take both double strollers. I called the pediatrician's office ahead of time to make sure they could get us right into a room to avoid exposing them to too many germs in the waiting area.

All bundled up, and ready to go to our 2 month doctor visit!

Patiently waiting for the doctor!

After our doctor's visit, we decided to take the babies to visit Sophie in the NICU. The pediatrician's office is only one block away from the hospital. It was nice to have everyone in the same room again! Poor Sophie probably wondered what happened to her quiet room since we came in with starving babies during feeding time.


By the time we all got home, James and I were exhausted, and the babies were all fussy from the shots. We all took a much needed nap!

Well, I should get bottles warm for our next feeding. I am posting some pictures from the first two months of our life with quads. Hope you enjoy! :)
