A mid-day slumber party

I noticed before lunch I was missing two, and found Skye & JuJu laying by the front door. They had both taken pillows & blankets and were all comfy and snuggled in. Of course, I had to take pics!
Skye's opinion of my picture taking which brought the other two running to the hideaway.
JuJu desperate for a blanket used a bathmat.
The reason JuJu was using a bathmat! JuJu originally had Rayne's blanket, but..... when Rayne walked up she quickly took it back, which started an INSTANT tantrum! River (who is really sweet~more on that later) ran and got JuJu the first "blanket" she could find-AKA the bathmat. As you can see here, while all of this chaos was going on, Rayne celebrated her victory in getting her blanket & a pre-set-up nap space!

River showing off her own blanket while JuJu was still having a tantrum on the floor.
The girls are really starting to interact in such amazing ways. Most of the time I feel like an intruder spying on this special little band of angels who is blessed to be included.
The other day Rayne & JuJu were playing with the door. They open & close it saying hello/goodbye over and over and over again. You get the idea. Well, it was only a matter of time when one of them got hurt. So JuJu got her hand caught in the door (not seriously, I have protectors on the door so it can't shut all the way). Before I could get over the babygate ( i was getting lunch ready), River & Skye went flying down the hall to her, yelling JuJu crying!
As soon as I got there & picked her up ( quick look, no blood, no broken bones or skin or obvious contusions), River & Skye were grabbing JuJu's blanket out of her crib for her & help me put it around JuJu. River went and got her blanket for JuJu & Skye got a stuffed bunny. Rayne handed her a book. I was so proud and amazed at my girls and how quickly they rallied around her at that moment. I knew right then, that no matter what happens, they will ALWAYS be there for each other and truly give the shirt off their back to the one in need. They even stood around and help to rub her back as I was doing until she was calmed down.
Of course, within in 10minutes they were back to being normal 2 year olds & I was looking at the clock hoping nap time was really soon!

That is SO cute! Love the title too! I almost wanted to snuggle up with them! (= We have had hands caught in the door here ever since they learned how to open & close them. It drives me CRAZY! LOL! Happy Spring!

Love, Cathy & the quads

That is really precious! I love to see my girls looking out for their "sissies". I can't imagine the amount of comradeship their must be with quadruplet girls!

Very cute pictures! I love that they made their own sleep space and by the door. Waiting on daddy to come home maybe?
