{Quad Squad} One vs. Four & Fall Photos!

Yesterday I got a taste of what life would have been like with just one single baby. What a dream to go out with one instead of four! I loved spending the day with my little big man and took Harrison to his doctor appointment, then decided to make a quick run through Babies R Us and Kroger on the way home.


Make no mistake, we are still on lockdown at home, so I sanitized my hands a million times in between touching things in the store and loading and unloading him from the 'burb. "I want four sick babies at home all at the same time, " said no one ever.

He loved eyeing all the colorful baby clothes around Babies R Us as we strolled through to grab a couple things, then he completely slept through Kroger while I bought them out of organic brown rice cereal. Which was only six boxes to begin with, anyway. Those will last about 2.5 weeks in our household! Some things, I've discovered, are totally worth buying in bulk simply so I don't have to haul around town wasting my free time by making runs to multiple stores looking for the same thing. Apparently Gerber's organic brown rice cereal and Baby Lysol are on that bulk-buy list.

The whole time I was in Kroger, I was prepared to fend off the masses who wanted to come up and see what a quadruplet looked like. After a couple minutes, I realized that no one even cared I was in there. Why would they suspect this single child was one of four? Ha! You mean, the average outing with a baby doesn't involve crazy questions about multiples, two twin strollers and a clearly mapped out escape plan?

As soon as this dawned on me, I literally rolled my eyeballs and laughed to myself—so there are some "normal" parts of having children that I have not yet, and may never, experience.  I'll accept my odds, though, since apparently I don't do many things in my life half-assed. Having four babies at once being among those. ;)


But once I got home, I was so excited to see the other three and set up a quick fall photo shoot on the love seat in our living room. Four lil pumpkins = major cute factor and super adorbs pictures. (And that's coming from someone who still doesn't consider themselves a "baby person" but I do have a soft spot for my fantastic four.)





Seeee? 
I told you they were cute. 


More fall pics coming this weekend!
And recipes!

  4. It is so funny how we get used to all the attention from four and realize when it's only one it's no biggie to the general public. I guess we get used to the limelight ;) So glad you got to spend some individual time with Harrison. I'm hoping to do that with ours from time to time.
    I LOVE your pumpkin pics, so cute! We need to dawn our Halloween onsies soon. We are totally phoning it in this year and just going with onsies. Next year we will sport some creative costume.

  6. Youre making it sound like having one baby at a time is "half-assing" it. Sorry we don't all have quads...

    1. Nope, not everyone has quads! It's a quip to make light of having four kids at the same time, take it or leave it.

  10. A the joys of a singleton! I had taken Just Kenzie to a drs appointment and it was so weird to just carry in one car seat, sit in a waiting room without being stared at, there were no questions about having my hands full, were they natural or fertility, and no being rude telling people they couldn't look.

    Love the pumpkin photo shoot and am going to totally steal your idea. Now to just find a black blanket! I can't believe how alert the kiddos are. I can just imagine them looking at you while your taking them thinking what is this lady going to make us do next!

    And where do you find baby Lysol? I can not find it anywhere....

    Keep up the great work Amber. And I can not wait for some tasty recipes to try!!

    1. It's a different world we live in now, huh, Krista!?

      And Baby Lysol is at Babies R Us...I LOVE it. Smells way better than regular Lysol and it's perfect for keeping the diaper bin fresh and sanitizing car seats and strollers after doc appts.

  11. Hi! I'm new to your blog, but I wanted to tell you that your little ones are so adorable! I agree with a previous poster that they are looking more & more alike as the days go on :) I think Harrison & Kailey look a lot & Trystan & Logan look a like! Keep up the good work, you're doing great!

  12. Boo to anonymous responses!! Your kids are adorable and I have LOVED reading all about the babies. My sister has twins and I have seen firsthand that the world of multiples is VERY different than having only 1 baby. It just is - good, bad or indifferent. Your photo shoots are so cute. Channel 2 shows viewer pics all the time on the air - you should definitely email one of your pictures.

  13. Hi Amber. I am Luann's sister-in-law here in TN. As she has shared your blogs I have been keeping up with you and the babies, but haven't written anything. I just wanted to tell you that I have enjoyed reading all about your experiences and seeing pics of your precious children. I shed a few tears and said lots of prayers for you all too. I thank the Lord that you have four beautiful healthy babies and thank you for sharing.
