Early Christmas Present

Nana thought the babies need something new to keep them entertained so she gave the quads their Christmas present early. Kristi and I could barely get it together before Leah had already climbed up. It gets a little hairy when more than two want at the top. They like to take the little people or anything else they can find and throw down the slide. And they think its quite hilarious to try to crawl up the slide and then slide down on their bellies.

Ricky and Heath checking out the view on top of their castle.

Leah taking a rest on the steps.

"You want me to go down this thing?!"

There's that sweet smile!

Peek a Boo Ricky!

Leah investigating underneath.

Tent Time

Miss Cecelia, a friend that still comes to help, brought over a tent that her grandchildren used to play in. the quads had a ball! Best of all it's easy to pop up and take down. So now when we need a new adventure to pass the time inside, we camp in!

Leah had some major static hair going on in the tent.

Tyler and Ricky checking it out.

Heath crawling around while Leah checks out the top of the tent. Heath getting a little static going on too.

Ricky having a ball crawling in and out.
They would crack me up how they would crawl in and roll around or just sit their and laugh at each other. The joys of simple pleasures!

Fun Fall Afternoons

Tyler happily playing in the leaves.
Heath getting him a hand full of leaves too.
Ricky coming after the camera.

Ricky Roo likes to play on the steps down to the driveway.

Ty-Man found himself a new hat. I think he's going to be the jokester of the bunch, always finding a way to make us laugh.

What do you mean I got a brown nose?

"Look Mom, i found some dirt ." Leah also enjoys a little dirt action. Today she didn't eat it!

"I'm not that dirty!"

The kiddos love being outside as much as possible. They love to play on the porch, venture down to the fence to see the puppies, play in the leaves, their playhouse, and the dirt of course!

Milk Mustache, Milk Belly, MILK EVERYWHERE

Heath enjoys taking a big drink out of his sippy cup and then letting it run out of his mouth! And then runs all over his clothes, his belly, and then we smear it on the table! Oh, the fun of boys!

Heath's First Haircut

Heath finally had enough hair that had grown on top that he needed a haircut. Randy is showing Melinda the long part on top. the only hair that seems to be growing.

He-Man sitting good and still...for now.

Heath now wondering, "What are you doing?"

Little trim around the ears.

Reward! Jenna helped Heath with his sucker. Yum!

There goes those sweet curls that Mama loves so. Ricky definitely needed his rug cut.

Sister once again manning the suckers.

Tyler was not too happy this time getting his hair cut. So he had to have his sucker during the cut to keep him happy. Glad Melinda has more covers. Tyler got just a little drool on this one.

Little Miss Leah got her a sucker too, which she loved. Miss independent held it herself and devoured the whole thing!

Pumpkins, Pumpkins, We Like Pumpkins...

On the first of November, we headed down to our church to the "pumpkin patch". The Pumpkin Patch is a fundraiser the kids do to make money for summer camps. The quads had a blast running around and checking out all the pumpkins. Sitt'n in the pumpkins.

Yep Sis, I think this is a good one.

I like this one, but I think I spy another good one.

Oh yeah, gotta get the big one.

Ricky Roo

He-Man on the run. Freedom!!

This is good for cutting teeth too.

Ty-man happily running about.

Trying to get 7 kids all looking at you and smiling at the same time, VERY VERY HARD!
Mollie with Heath, Ashley with Tyler, Ricky, Leah, and Jenna.

All looking just not all smiling. Oh well!

October Picture Overload!

Better late than never! That seems to be my motto these days as I'm always blogging late. Yes, of course, Tyler has an Aerosmith onesie on! He also has a bid too that says " A is for Aerosmith" Aunt Kristi hooked him up with the duds.

Still amazed that this big boy figured out how to get in this thing!

Ricky's first black eye happened on the 2nd. He whacked his eye on the corner of the coffee table as he was walking by Brad. He got a busted lip too.

Tyler in a box while Heath's running around. I so do love baby jammies!

Ricky getting a wagon ride at Nana and Pa's house.

Not sure what Randy just caught Jenna doing.

" Hey Dad, let's watch a little TV."

The boy has curls! I just love the back of his hair. The more humid it is or right after bath, they are the best. Tyler and Leah have a little too but nothing like Ricky's.

Silly girl walking with her lovey. She just decided to up and walk on the 12th of October. When she first started she held her hands in the air all the time. On the 15th noticed that her 5th tooth was coming in on the bottom. on the 25th she started making the come here motion or also give me with her hand.

On the 19th, Heath took off all over the house, walking with his hands in the air. On the 7th he got his 8th tooth on the bottom. On the 1st, he started blowing kisses . On the 24th he started pointing to things. He's been showing his temper more.

The quads like to get between Ricky and Heath's bed and the window to look out into the front yard.

Silly little Roo Roo!

Tyler and Ricky Actually sitting down on the couch together and being nice!

This is Ricky deciding to sit on the bottom of the ladder as Randy was hanging the new ceiling fan base. By the 4th of October he was walking everywhere. On the first he started giving sugar and blowing kisses. Ricky is my little helper. he hands me his bottle and nearly can say "thank you". He also like to collect everyone elses bottle, sometimes before they are done. He was even trying to help me give everyone else a bath. He tries to pour water on their heads and pats them with a rag.

Can't pass up some sleeping baby pictures!
Heath with his lovey on his head and blanket in his face. He's always like his face covered with something (scary for me).

Lee-Lee with her lovies. she actually has 2, but the pink cheetah one is her favorite.

Ricky stretched out. They all still sleep with their lovies from the hospital too.

Tyler cuddled up with his Ducky.

" See Mom, I can climb on things just as good as the boys."

My other child, Mollie my niece. She's got some school spirit going on for game day.

"Throw me the ball, I'm open.'

Rocks with dirt are good protein and for cutting teeth.

Outta my way! This little man decided to start walking more around the 23rd of the month. By the end of the next week, he had it down. He's a high stepper walker. Tyler likes to dog pile and lay on someone else to give them hugs/love. But he is not fond of someone else giving some love back. He's still the squealer.

Ricky and Leah in the pig toy box. A moment with no fighting!

Jenna playing with Leah, making her giggle. Two sweet sistas!

Our little Halloween Kitty.

3 out of 4 looking up ain't bad! I wanted to get a picture of them all in their Halloween shirts but couldn't get them still by myself. So Nan tried to get a quick picture while I wrestled them.

Boooo! Aren't I scary!

Tyler's got some suctioned going on that sucker! Mollie couldn't pry it out of his mouth!
