Welcome to our Family Anndalyn Grace

This is a guest post from Mike Amber's husband.  
On May 29, 2010 at 2:55 pm, Amber delivered a beautiful baby girl Anndalyn Grace DeMaria.  Mom and baby are doing very well and the quads and daddy can't wait for everyone to come home.   Anndalyn weighed 7.6 pounds and is 21 inches long.  We feel so blessed and excited about little "Annie" coming home and adding to our family.  More pictures will be added when we get a chance.

Cooking With The Quads

One of our new favorite games is playing kitchen. They have so much fun with their food, pots and pans. I have been looking on Craigs List for a kitchen. I think they would love that.

First step- Dump the food out on the floor, Michael loves this part.

Jakob and Michael

Michaels excited!

Jakob and Jaileigh. She's cooking her hot dogs and Jake wants one.

Jake put graham crackers on his plate

Anthony hiding his plate of crackers under his legs. Do you think things get stolen at our house?

I love this picture of Michael. He was being so silly.

She Loves Her Brother

One day Jakob and Jaileigh woke up from their naps at the same time and decided to hang out together on Mommy and Daddy's bed. Jaileigh kept trying to tackle Jake and give him kisses. He was playing hard to get but I think he secretly liked the attention. Usually Jaileigh and Michael are buddies.

She just tackled him

Now she's getting ready to go for it . . . .

AhHHhhh she got him!

The aftermath. Is that disgust on his face?

Here are his real feelings.

Jaileigh- very proud of herself

Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My!

One of the last times we went to the zoo we decided to buy them souvenirs. We bought them toy animals and they have loved these! They play with them several times each day. Even though we have the Little People animals so they still love these more. One day after naps they got their animals and went and sat on the couch together.

Michael, Jake, Anthony, and Jaileigh

Michael thinks something is funny. Jake and Anthony are teething on their giraffes. They are both cutting canine teeth. OUCH.

Anthony and Jaileigh. She looks really enthused. I probably asked her to tell me what animals she had.

Jaileigh kissing her monkey
Jake and his giraffe

Michael and the hippo

Anthony and the other giraffe. Does anyone know what sound a girafffe makes? I don't!

Anthony and Jaileigh are having a conversation about the monkey and Michael and Jakob are listening intently.

I couldn't resist this picture because of Jake's grin.

Now they are conversing about the turtles.

Boom Boom Ain't It Great To Be. . .

One of the songs my kids like to sing is

"Boom, boom, ain't it great to be (Anthony, Michael, Jaileigh, or Jakey)? Giddy and foolish the whole day through. Boom, boom, ain't it great to be (Anthony, Michael, Jaileigh, or Jakey)?"

While we sing it they play the drums. This morning we got the pots and pans out so they could each have their own drumset.



Michael always likes to smile for pictures.

Jaileigh wanted 3 drums

Jakob even got some spoons out to hit the drums with
