Christmas Time and December Visitors

We went back to the GI doctor this week. The babies still have reflux. Their meds were increased and because they are gaining weight, no new actions. So, we have projectiling, fat babies.

Here are their new weights:
Anthony- 10 lbs 4 ozs
Michael- 10 lbs 8 ozs
Jakob- 10 lbs 10 ozs
Jaileigh- 8 lbs 8 ozs

December has been a fabulous month for visitors. We have been so blessed to have so many family members and friends come help. When they come visit this gives our church a break. I'm sure that the church members are happy to have a break.

With the Christmas and flu season it has been harder to get help. One day Mike and I survived 16 hours without help. It was pretty traumatic actually. I really don't know what I am going to do when Mike goes back to work. We have been so blessed and lucky to have so much help so far.

Aunt Julie came back again. She flies in from Salt Lake every 2-3 weeks to help out. She is holding Jaileigh and Michael.

Aunt Linda came out with Aunt Julie this time. She is the only guest to successfully get a picture with all four babies on their lap. Anthony, Jakob, Michael, and Jaileigh.

Anthony and Jaileigh having a little bonding time.

Mike and Anthony- bonding time. They have become buddies lately. Anthony is a high maintenance eater. He still hasn't figured out how to burp so you have to work with him.

Sweet Michael

I've been super terrible lately with keeping up with my blogging buddies.
I just wanted to tell you how GOOD your kids look! The baby fat is the best! I know reflux is hard but it does get better. i promise, its not forever. We are still on very little meds but almost done with them.
The kids are just too cute!
Enjoy your volunteers and take all the help you can get! I miss mine many days (our stopped oct 1).
