I'm taking the blogging plunge!

I've decided to jump into the world of blogging. I hope that this will help to keep everyone updated on the girls and with life in a "day care gone bad" (otherwise known as our life with 18month quads). Actually, River, Rayne, Julianne (aka JuJu) and Skye have been the biggest blessings in my life next to their dad, Beau! I truely cannot imagine life without them. And it all began with a blind date 6 years ago! Who knew??
As for the girls, they just had their 18month check-up and have been so healthy they don't have to go back for 6months!!! (Except they have now decided to have ear infection, snotty noses, and bark like a bunch of seals...... and of course, keep me up all night!)

For the latest stats on the girls:

River is now 32" tall & weighs 24.4lbs (at birth 3lb 1 oz)
Rayne is 32" tall & 23.5lbs (3lb 7 oz)
JuJu is 31" & 22.2lbs (3lb 1 oz)
SKye is 29.75" & 19.4lbs (2lb 13oz

River, Rayne & Skye hit all the milestones on the 18month checklist. The doctor was very impressed and happy on their growth.

JuJu continues to have delays, but her growth and accomplishments the last 6months have been phenomonal! The neurologists even said she has done so well that there is no need for another MRI or testing at this point and he didn't need to see her for a WHOLE YEAR!!!!!! (For those who may not know, right after birth JuJu got a very bad staph infection, MRSA, that left her with a stroke that has affect her left side and hearing damage known as Auditory Neuropathy. She wears hearing aides when she & her sisters leave them alone!)

Just too cute. I'm going to link to your blog on mine so I can check out you guys. I love seeing the four of them :) I have three girls. Now I know what it would be like to have one more!! Well, I have one more but she's 7 so that doesn't count...

What's funnier is whenever I talk about having another one so we could have just one more boy my husband says "you know we'll get 4 girls instead!"

I'm so glad you've begun blogging. I have so enjoyed keeping mine up, and I'm working on making my first year's worth of blog entries into a book for all four of my girls. Hope they will enjoy it one day as much as I've appreciated the outlet it has been!
Anyway, glad you are blogging and with your permission I'll add you to the list of same age group multiples blogs I read.
