Pius, Forrest, Danna and Laine in their Sunday best
TIMBER!!! Sometimes Pius has problems with his cheeks throwing him off-balance
The Bronco Boys
"No, I am NOT a boy!" Her pink Broncos outfits were still a little too roomy. We didn't want to show any cleavage.
Our evening routine seems to be working some sort of magic. I know Bucko would agree with us, despite how much she loaths "quiet time". About 15 minutes before the last bottle of the day, we turn the lights down, turn off/mute the T.V. (if there's a game on) , turn on the Baby Einstein music CD and try to refrain from too much talking (this is where Bucko has the issues). We get them ready for bed (change diapers, put them in their "sleep sacks" because they kick out of blankets, have some last minute smiles and cooing and say our prayers) and give them their bottles. Then, the magic begins..... They have been sleeping anywhere from about 7 to 9 hours until their morning feeds! And what's better is that after their 1st a.m. feed, they go back to sleep for another 1 1/2 to 3 hours. Life's good. Now if only mom would learn to go to bed when the babies do....but alas, there are posts to be written. Especially since the Tubres last Dance Video was released. They have some really sweet moves, those kids.
Since we're on the subject of beds, the babies' cribs are now complete. I had bought material for the crib skirts and bumpers way back in Phoenix. As it turns out, I didn't have as much spare time as I thought I would and hadn't even started THINKING about sewing them. My Aunt Cathy (Becky's mom) came to the rescue. Not only did she turn out some beautiful bedskirts and bumpers.... they were EXACTLY what I had in mind. I can't thank her enough! The quads would've been in college before I ever sat down to do them. We kind of have a dark denim/Americana-esque theme in the babies' room. You can't really tell from the pictures below. I'll try to get a better picture of the bedding when the kids aren't sleeping in them. Aunt Cathy is also our Tuesday afternoon bath-giver and all-around helper. She knows all too well the lethal accuracy of Forrest "the sniper" Graf. I hope he's half as talented with a basketball.
Danna wanted a victory beer after KU's big win, but the most dad would allow was a sniff
Gampa Stubby with Pius (cheering for KU)
When Forrest starts telling us a "whale tale", we'll know were he got it. Okay, that caption comment was totally stupid, but I couldn't think of anything else.
Billy, Monica, etc, etc, etc, etc
P.S. Are your taxes done, yet? My sister, Emily, just got finished with ours. All I can say is, "Thank God for our little tax deductions!" Woo-Hoo! We're going to the Sizzler, baby!
