Hello Everyone! It has been a while since my last post. We have all been busy with the holiday, Casey going out of town again, I unfortunately went back to work, and of course all of the kids are sick. There is a lot to report so read on if you wish.

For starters, we have started spoon feeding rice cereal to Ethan and Sam. They do pretty well and seem to enjoy it. Cooper and Addison have not seemed to need the additional food quite yet so we are introducing one child at a time.

Colin came down with a cold before Thanksgiving and gave it to all of the babies. They all sound horrible, we were even wondering if a couple of them had croup. As they are getting better, Colin is getting worse. He started running a fever Saturday and has crackles in his chest. We saw the Doctor today and he thinks he has bronchitis or pneumonia. He didn't want to order a chest x-ray because they are both treated with the same antibiotics. Hopefully he gets better and the babies don't get worse. Here is Sam looking his finest......
Happy late Thanksgiving to everyone, we hope you all had a wonderful holiday. All of the kids were to sick to join in the festivities but I still had to dress them in their cute little outfits and take some pics of their first Thanksgiving. Casey and I were able to celebrate with our families but not with each other. I stayed home with the kids while he went to his parents and then he stayed home so I could go to mine. It was actually great to stuff myself this year with one meal instead of holding back for two!!

Casey is in LA until tomorrow night and then back to New Jersey on Thursday. He will be gone until Christmas this time. Colin really misses him and is always asking "When will daddy be home?" We are counting down the days together and with some help from family we are getting through the chaos.

The babies had their 6 month checkup today and are all doing great. I cannot believe they are already 6 months old. They got the normal shots, they don't like those so much, and the routine exam. I am excited that the Doc switched all of them to similac with iron so no more expensive neosure. I use the target brand and it cuts the cost by more than half. They are getting so big, they are all on the charts for height and weight. Ethan leads the pack and is a whopping 18lbs 5oz's, next is Sam with 16lbs 5oz's, Cooper is 16lbs 1oz, and little Addie, 5 times her birth weight, at 14lbs 5oz's. I haven't uploaded the pictures from the Doc yet so I am sure in another month or so I will get them on here.

I hope all is well with you and your families. Happy Holidays, until next time...............

I hope everyone is feeling better soon! We are dealing with the same sickies around here. 5 ear infections between 4 babies & BAD colds. Love the Thanksgiving shots....the shirts are adorable but the babies even more so & as always Colin is just a doll! Here's to hoping Dec flies by & Casey is home before you know it!
