And the babies are.....

HEALTHY so far, which is of course the most important thing! I haven't yet shared this blog with people I know in real life (I need to do that asap), but if you knew me, you would know that I am insanely gender obsessed! It didn't really matter WHAT genders (although I did hope for at least one of each), but I just had to know! I was the same way with Ella, although I did want a girl very badly with her.  :) ANYWAY! We had our elective gender scan today! It was a blast and I was so thankful all babies were moving and kicking around everywhere, I always get SO nervous before an ultrasound worried that one may not be there anymore. Morbid, I know, but it's just a huge fear. After I saw that I could focus on finding out the genders! We didn't get any cute profile shots since it was just a gender scan... but here are the goods!

Introducing Abby Reese! Baby A is a GIRL!

Introducing Carson Eli! Baby B is a BOY!
 Here is Allie Claire- Baby C is a GIRL!

And last but not least, here is Corbin (Jacob?)- Baby D is a BOY!!

We are so excited to add 2 little boys and 2 more girls to our family! We took Ella to the ultrasound, she was not all that impressed, she just wanted to play with their toys. But I guess that is what you get from a 2 year old!  ;) When we came home and watched the video of the ultrasound again, and turned it off, she kept asking where her babies went. She loves my belly and loves the idea of babies being in there, but I don't think she really understands that they are real babies, and that they will be coming out to live with us!! The other day she brought some sprinkles and put them in my belly button, telling me she wanted to feed the babies sprinkles, it was so cute! She always sticks 2 fingers in my belly button and tries to rip my stomach open, and gets upset because she can't get the babies out. She is such a sweet girl and is very gentle and kind with babies (although jealous a lot of the time when Daddy or I hold them), so I am hoping she does well with them when they come home!

I am growing, growing, growing. Although I don't mind my stomach growing of course, it is a little hard for me to see the rest of me balloon up. But I know it has to happen in order for me to gain all the weight I need for the babies... so I just have to suck it up!!  Here is a pic of my 16 week belly!

I also wanted to share this awesome necklace a good friend of mine, Dottie, had made for me! It represents the quads, and my sweet Ella as well! She is always so thoughtful, and I will cherish this gift forever! I am very lucky to have her as a friend, along with a few other amazing friends as well!

 Well, I guess that is it for today, folks! We are on cloud 9 and just so blessed and happy! We will be approaching the difficult part of the pregnancy soon, I will go on bed rest in 2 weeks. So any prayers or positive thoughts would be greatly appreciated, I hope and pray daily that I can carry these babies for a LONG time!!


  1. You look so great! Congratulations and best wishes through the rest of your journey.

  2. I am so excited for you!!! And you look great! Just remember, I'll be in the same position in a couple weeks and feeling like I've turned into a balloon... haha, so we are never alone. I just keep telling myself these little quads will be all worth it in the end. :)

  3. Thanks ladies!!

    And yes, Amber, they will be SO worth it! We don't have a lot longer, we can do it!! :)
