"My future so bright...I gotta wear shades!"

The quads usually meet Randy at the door when he gets home in the morning. They confiscate anything he has in his hands. This morning (July 7th) he let them put on his sunglasses.

"Yeah, I know I look good!"

"Hey Man, don't mess with me!"

"I had a late night last night..."

"I'm a Rhinestone Cowboy..."

Tyler loves to wear hats or anything else he can find to put on his head! This was Jenna's little "cowboy hat" that she had gotten from Mollie.

You want some of me?? I didn't think so!!

Outta my way bubba. This cowpoke is coming through!

July 5th: A Little WWF and Super Quad Heros!

On July the 5th, we went from having a WWF smack down in the morning to super hero's in the evening. Leah can take down any of the boys when she feels the need or when they have something she wants.

Her victim today is Tyler. Today was more playful than meanness. Everyone was laughing in the beginning.

Leah was trying to tickle Tyler.

Tyler had just about enough of that sweet sisterly love!

That evening the quads were quite wound up right before bedtime. Randy made them all little super hero's with their blanket capes. They "flew" through the living room, laughing and having a grand time!

Super Man! Ricky was flying high through the living room.

Tyler getting his cape adjusted while Leah heads out chewing on her cape.

Heath is on a mission!

He-Man! The Great American Hero!

The quads had a ball running around being super babies!

Thank goodness no major catastrophes while they were running around!

Leah practicing her "wrastling" (as my PePaw would have said) moves.

June Picture Overload

Future boyfriends??? Kash, Wyatt, and Leah at one of the girl's softball game.

Tyler flashing his gorgeous smile as he flies by. He's been saying "dow" for down, "peas"for please, "du" for his duckie, juice, trying fork, "Mo" for Mollie, and moo/cow. He's getting tooth #10 in, a molar.

Lee-Lee putting on Mommy's sneaker.

"What do you want?"Heath wearing his shades upside down on his neck.

Ride that pony. Go to town...

Ride that pony. Don't fall down!! Tyler and Heath tried to get Daddy to give them pony rides, if they don't get bucked off!

Leah trying her hand at corn on the cob. You can see her battles scars where the porch steps won and she lost (scared me to death!!!). It's funny to hear and see Leah tell the boys "no". Lately she's been shaking her head and pointing to whatever they are not supposed to be doing and tells them"No-No." She also likes saying "uh-oh" alot. I'm getting her to point when she wants down but still haven't exactly gotten the word out of her yet. She started getting her 13th tooth in June. She has also picked up ones of the boys bad habits, BITING! One day when I was at work she latched onto poor Tyler's cheek! She's paying the boys back for all the times she has been the recipient of the attacks! She's been throwing some really good fits (on the floor, rolling around screaming, kicking, clenching her fists, etc....). She's been a little more picky with her food again. But, right now she likes pineapple! Some days she won't even eat mac &cheese! She would be happy with just meat and eggs!

Tyler, Ricky, and Heath watching some cartoons while trying to get ready for church. As you can see, we've already lost shoes! I put them on, they take them off; the story of my life!

Tyler decided to used the baby doll stroller to give him a boost up to the TV.

Leah taking a turn on the cabinet while Heath rearranges the sheets.

"BOO!!" Leah loves this old comforter of Ashley's. She loves to roll up in it and hates for anyone else to touch it when she is in it.

For example,

Tyler also loves the softness of the comforter. Here he's trying to join Leah in the covers.

Leah throwing a hissy and does NOT want to share her covers!

Rick already taking an early morning break. If you wouldn't wake up so darn early you wouldn't be tired! The boy rarely sleeps past 7am. I leave him in his bed as long as he's happy jabbering at himself, his toys, or sometimes Heath if he's up. He's saying the word "up' all the time. He also works on "bowl, spoon, more alot. I got him to say "gross" a couple of times when he gives me a doozy of a diaper. Randy was working with him saying"come here". It comes out "ca mere". He also will push you and say "move!'. he's still biting some but has been really throwing things lately. Quite a temper!

Tyler thinks he needs a second pair of pajama bottoms on.

He's worked them up, even has a leg in each hole...

Just can't quite get them pulled all the way up. But, of course, that doesn't slow him down one bit!

I just loves these pictures of Heath! Just great pictures of his wonderful smile! He pulled out the bottom drawer of pajamas to sit in.

Heath has been signing please really well this month. He's also pointing and trying to say down, says kitty, said 'Mo" for Mollie, "DeeDee" for Kristi, and boo for book (can't get the K out yet). He also is saying "move" ans will push you out of the way. Talk about hard-headed! Ricky and him both will just walk up and nail one of the other ones of the mood strikes them or you tell him "no" and they do it anyway! He likes to stomp his feet when he throws a fit, turns beet red while he screams. The little blood vessel that runs across his nose pops out really good during his throwdown! LOL!

The girl's hair is getting long! She's got her purse...

And now Mommy's shoes.If she could get that hair out of her face she could be on her way!

Roo, big sis, Jenna, and Sam. Ricky loves to hold Sam. Poor Sam doesn't feel the same way! He's a very nervous puppy! Can't say that I blame him with 4 babies chasing him around the house trying to "pet" him!

Ricky strangling, no I mean holding Sam. Ricky was actually being very sweet this time!

Ashley and Mollie being silly. I found this picture while scrolling through my camera. Still can't believe they will be freshmen in high school!!

Ricky Roo doing a little bouncing on the ball while I work on lunch.

My little man was just tuckered out after lunch!

They are all infatuated with my coffee cup in the morning. they all want to come touch it and say"hot". Occasionally they try to get a taste of the lid. they are loving their books these days. They love popsicles of course! We pulled out some potty chairs so we can start talking about sitting on the potty. terrible 2's are already beginning!

4th of July Parade and Dairy Fest

On July 3rd, I loaded up Jenna, the quads, Mollie, and her cousin Lauren and went to Stephenville to watch their 4th of July Parade and check out Dairy Fest in the city park. The kiddos watching intently as the parade finally makes it down our way. It took nearly 30 minutes for it to reach us downtown! The parade was just a little too long!
FIRETRUCKS!!! Glad no one had a fire that morning because all the county and small towns surrounding Stephenville had their trucks in the parade! Talk about LOUD!

Tyler waving and saying "Hi". Mollie and Lauren in the background. Heath and Leah looking pretty serious.

Ricky was clapping as the Stephenville high school band played. He liked waving "Hi" alot too.

Heath still very serious about the whole deal. Every now and then he would wave too.

In the backseat is Lynnette, she's the preop nurse at the hospital. Her husband, Chris is the Chief of Erath County Fire and Rescue (he's driving). You can't see him, but her grandson is also riding along.

A mini milk truck. the man driving it and a friend of his built the mini milk truck. When we got to the park they were giving away free milk that they carried in the milk tank.

The quads were very happy to receive some toys from a nice lady in the parade!

Hi Dr. Erck!! Dr. Erck, one of our general surgeons, got to drive the freshman cheerleaders in the parade. He was being a supportive cheer Dad and was cheering along with the girls!

Down at the park. after we got the quads some balloons, Jenna wanted to climb the rock wall they had set up. Here she's getting her harness on.

An off she goes!

I couldn't believe how high up she go! She said she would have gone higher but she ran out of places to put her feet. :)

Jenna, Ricky, Heath, Tyler, and Leah getting their picture with the cow before we headed out.
