Lexi looked beautiful for her 8th grade social!!! She wore a stunning yellow dress that was perfect for her! She had a great time with all of her friends! I can't believe she is this old, already! Where's my little 3 year old in her Big Bird shirts???? LOL :)

when you leave FOUR two year olds alone for about FIVE minutes!!!! They somehow got a hold of a permanent marker (Thanks, Lexi!!! LOL) and had a blast marking themselves up..........and the couch...........and the NEW TV!!!! As my friend Brandi would say, "Never a dull moment!" LOL

Nicholas had his first official campout with the Cub Scouts on 6/19/09. He had a great time.....although he was initially apprehensive about sleeping in a tent! :) He did great, and is looking forward to the next campout at the local Minor League baseball field. :) Great job, Nick!

Yes, it's been awhile since I have blogged here consistently. Unfortunately, it has been a rough month or two with our family. My husband, Tom, and I have separated. He has moved out of the house and I am in the process of filing for a legal separation. Things have been very chaotic, stressful, and of course sad, however, our family has also been surrounded by an outpouring of love and support from our family and friends. For that, I am forever grateful.
In any event, I will try and blog more regularly now, as things are beginning to calm down some, and we are now living our "new normal" if you will.
Thanks for reading and caring about our family. :)

My Matthew........my "oldest" of the quadruplets-my Baby A........ :) I had loved the name Matthew, even way before I became pregnant with the babies. So, naturally, as soon as I found out that Baby A was a boy-he became my Matthew. :) Matthew continues to be a "Momma's boy"........he LOVES being right next to me, ALL the time! :) He is my little honeypot-and I am trying to savor these moments that he does want to be so close to me. In regards to speech, he is really coming along. In the past month or so, his words have really picked up-and he amazes me daily with new sayings. I am quite pleased with his progress. In regards to nutrition, he is still struggling. Even with the chaos in my life now, I *try* to give him as much high calorie foods as I can..........I know I haven't done great the past month, but I am trying. We did discover that he did have a slight iron deficiency in his bloodwork, so he now takes an iron supplement daily. Matthew also has a "second opinion" type appointment with a new GI doctor in July-I am anxious to get another opinion. I do plan on taking both Matthew and Katie into the pediatrician this week to see how their weight gain has been this past month-believe it or not, it does "seem" that they feel heavier! :) Matthew is a very determined little boy. He knows what he wants and goes after it----his "shrill piercing" scream is definitely a weapon in his arsenel-once he starts screaming, the other babies tend to give up. It is like nails on a blackboard-trust me! LOL :) When Matty is happy, boy is he happy. He is loveable, cuddly, and super sweet. Even though he remains the tiniest of the bunch, he will always be the "big brother" to the gang. "Small but mighty"-that is my Matthew. :) Mommy loves you, Matty........XOXOXO

I was so excited to chaperone Nick's field trip to the Aquarium this week! :) I was soooo looking forward to spending the day with my handsome six year old son! :) And trust me, it was a much needed "break" for me as well! We had a great time-saw many fishies, sharks, and even hippos and birds! Of course, Nick had to get his face painted-and I think that was the highlight of his trip!!! :)
