And speaking of four, great things are happening in fours around here! The babies are all rolling around like crazy, standing flat on their feet when you hold them up and babbling and laughing every chance they can—mostly when they make eye contact with someone. Kailey will talk to anything with "eyes," including toys. And Logan, who is usually a tough crowd to crack, has been turning up smiles nearly every day. They're also flying through the foods now. We've introduced, in no particular order, sweet potatoes, spinach, apples, pears (a fan fave), mangos, bananas, peas, squash and carrots and will be tackling blueberries, zucchini and broccoli in the next two weeks. We've also started mixing some foods, most of which I make myself, and they love carrots and apples together as well as peas with pears.
They are about 6 1/2 months old now and Harrison weighs 14lbs 11.5oz; Logan is 14lbs 1oz; Kailey is 13lbs 15.5oz; and Trystan is 13lbs 10oz. I think it's so cool that, even though there's only about a pound difference between the lightest and heaviest, their body shapes are all quite different at the moment. Trystan is very petite and all muscle right now, while Logan is a bit shorter and chunkier and Kailey and Harrison are both long and lean. Kailey likes to hold her arms open to either side when she wants to be picked up and girl's got some skyscraper arms and fingers!
Weeks and weeks ago, I promised a post on how we accomplished 12-hour sleeps at night for those who have asked how in the world we did it with quadruplets. And it's coming, I promise! It takes me forever to get anything done these days. No, seriously. It took me five days to put away one basket worth of laundry that sat in my room for a week before that. Just as soon as I set out to do a particular task, about three more pop up in its place and then a baby starts crying for attention or my phone rings and then I can't even remember what I was trying to remember to do in the first place. I tend to go through that cycle about three more times before ever touching down on a project and even then it doesn't always get finished. How the hell I meet deadlines for work I'll never know.
This is my crazy life. And I love it all.
