What a blessing these babies are! We love them with all of our hearts and cannot imagine our lives without them. I cannot believe that they have been with us for 6 months already. I remember the day they were born, like it was yesterday. I cherish every second I have with these little miracle babies. I feel so blessed and loved that Heavenly Father chose Mike and I to be their parents. We hope and pray that we will do the job that He has lined out for us the way that we are supposed to.
Jakob, Jaileigh, Michael, and Anthony- reverse birth order. Can you tell by the thighs who doesn't miss many meals? (Hint- count the rolls)
Feeding carrots for the first time. It was a family affair.
Michael- not so sure about things.
and dear Anthony- he is never one to keep his opinion to himself.
Jaileigh was ok with the carrots but not the Bumbo chair. You can see in the previous family picture that she was out of the chair and on daddy's lap. She has been a mammas girl for soooo long and now she is starting to warm up to other people. Thank goodness!
More pictures tomorrow of the celebration. We even had cake!

Jakob trying out the Baby Einstein Exersaucer
Anthony again with Jaileighs hand on his head.
Jaileigh with her rice cereal face. We either feed them in their Bumbo chairs or their boppies and we spoon feed them. This should make all the occupational therapists happy.
Michael showing his new dislike for cereal. He figured out that the bottle is much faster.

Michael waiting not so patiently for his next bite
We also got BUMBO chairs for Christmas. They love sitting in them and socializing with each other. They are so cute too. Early Childhood Intervention comes in on Friday's to work with the babies and suggested we ask Bumbo chairs for Christmas. They are really neat chairs.

I have attached some links to our friends blogs that have blogged about the DeMaria quadruplet experience. Jen, Michelle, and Marci spent weekends(s) with us and we are so grateful and feel so blessed for their help.
and now for the best part . . . . . . pictures
Michael and Jakob
This time they are trying their serious faces

My friend Kristen came up from Vegas to spent a night and a day with us. She and Michael bonded. They will be forever buddies now.

Mike and Jakob snoozing on the couch- they must have had a rough night.
Baby Major, my brothers son is 2 1/2 months old and is going to be very tall. This is a picture of his foot next to Jaileigh's.
Grandpa and Anthony taking a little nap together.
Jakob- grinning again.
Grandma and Jaileigh
Rori taking a nap with one of the babes. Do you think the babies got spoiled with all the napping together?
Grandpa and Anthony having some male bonding time
You may have noticed that Jaileigh quite often has a bow on her head. The majority of these come from my friend Darcy. She has given me quite a few of them as gifts and I love them! She makes and sells them and this link is for her store. The bows are adorable and very reasonably priced.My Dolly's Bows
