4 month checkup!

So, we ventured out again today for the babies' 4 month checkup at the doctor's. All babies did great-we had minimal crying the whole visit. (even with the 4 shots they got!)

So, at 4 months, these are the stats:

Matthew 8 lbs 11 oz 21 inches long (he's come a long way b/c of his reflux!)
Emma 11 lbs 7 oz 22 3/4 inches long
Kaitlin 9 lbs 15 oz 21 inches long

and our big guy..........
Austin 14 lbs 7 oz 24 1/2 inches long!!!!

Austin and Emma actually made it on the growth chart for their size. If I remembered correctly, Austin fell in the 25th% while Emma was in the 5th%. The doc said that they may not be completely caught up until 18 months old. It is a great thing, though, that with being 2 months premature, two of the babies are actually comparing well to a singleton baby born full term. Mommy's doing something right!!!

We ordered our new "custom built" Ford 12 passenger van today. Yahoo! Everyone will definitely see us coming! It should be ready within 3 weeks..................I'm trying to get myself excited.......................
