Guess who is who! (In case you can't tell from their melons, it's youngest to oldest from left to right)

Our precious angel babies
Pius "Big Poppa" James: He is up to 5 pounds, 8 ounces. He continues to gain weight, and right now his major hurdle is the whole "suck, breathe, swallow" thing. He still is trying to figure out the breathe and swallow part. He is doing a great job getting the food in his mouth, but, like we said, sometimes forgets to breathe or swallow. His little butt is getting better. We are still using water wipes and various butt-creams, but he seems to be getting less angry when we wipe him now. In fact, nothing really bothers him.
Our sweet and chubby cherub, Pius

Laine Ryan: He is up to 3 pounds, 8 ounces. He, like his brothers, is starting the bottle feeding. He does it once a shift, and has had mixed reviews from his nurses. Right now he is batting about .500. Pretty good average...in baseball. Really, he has done well twice and has been uninterested twice. He still has the best temperament, and kind of has Moni and me wrapped around his fingers. We even still think it's cute when he loses his temper because it takes a long time to get him worked up to that point.
Our laid-back angel, Laine, taking everything in stride
The babes had such a big day today! We had a very special visitor come to see us. Dear ol' Santa came early to make sure the quads were going to be able to make his "nice" list. They were at the top of the list. Their daddy also made it to the top of a list. Unfortunately, it was the one labelled "naughty". It was quite a production to get all the babies on Santa's lap, but everyone fit (with the help of about 16 extra hands). Laine tried to pick Danna's nose, Forrest was a crybaby and Pius just slept through the whole thing! It was such an awesome experience and the pictures are priceless!
