Noah & Sophia
You may have noticed in the picture above that Noah's bottle is as big as he is! He is eating more than all of his siblings at about 5 - 6 oz. a sitting. We figure he's either a binge drinker or just making up for lost time. Either way, we'd better let the Aggies know of his skills so he might get an honorary ring. ;)

Finn & Noah
Finn is always put to bed the same way you see Noah there - wrapped tight and next to his brother. Every time we go in there he's somehow come out of his blanket and finds his way to the bumper.
It's been a while since we've been out of the house and we were getting a little stir crazy so yesterday we decided to take a field trip to Target so we could get some errands done and the babies could get a change of scenery. A trip to the store has now turned into a side show act. Lets all face it, even when we see one new baby out and about we all take a minute to check them out, look at the mom to see if she's in one piece, give her a congratulatory smile and are on our merry way. With four babies it's just natural that people have got to know more. It's too much for just a smile or nod and on with their shopping. Chris and I planned ahead and brought one double stroller and then held one baby each in a baby bjorn, which cut down on the gazes. Still, wondering around we would hear "Oh, Twins!" and then a few seconds later they would have a very astonished look on their face as they realized we were each carrying another baby with us. One gal said to her friend as she's staring at us approaching her, "Look - twins!" The friend says, "No, I think it's four." Gal replies,"Where are the other two?" The friend, "The parents are wearing them." Another lady came up to me while I was looking over a few Christmas cards and stares for a moment and then asks "Are these all yours?" I wanted to reply, "No, I've been collecting them in each of the aisles hoping no one would notice." But instead, I just nod and say, "Yup, and my husband has one more in the next aisle over." Her eyes were as big as saucers.
Even better is when we headed to the baby section. Here you'll find new moms battling one new infant and you can see the tired look on their faces. We approach and they almost go white. One new mom came over and patted me on the back and could hardly say a word. I feel like this is one of our public services, helping these moms get a sudden burst of new energy knowing the only have one bottom to wipe.
