Can anyone believe that the Graf Quads are 2 years old? That's right. 730 days have flown by since they were born and our lives are so much more rich, blessed and satisfying because of them. They are so big and smart......and incredibly good looking, of course. They were born 9 weeks early with a combined weight of 11 pounds, 2 ounces. We marvel at how they have grown and flourished since being released from the NICU.

We are so proud of them for everything they have learned and for all the things they do and WILL do in the future. We couldn't picture our lives without them and thank God everyday for giving us these four blessings (and for giving us the family and friends that have helped us survive these miracles). Our children challenge us, love us unconditionally, learn from us, teach us, and make us better people each and every day. The world is a better place because our quads are in it.

Pius James @ 2. Hamming it up!

Forrest Michael @ 2. Big grin from a big boy!

Danna Lynn @ 2. Daddy you're so funny!

Laine Ryan @ 2. Isn't it amazing?

Happy Birthday Graf Quads!
Momma and Daddy

Happy Birthday to my sweet grandbabies. The last two years have truly been a blessing with you in our lives. You are addictive I love being around you. You are so much fun and your personalities are a hoot. I wish you would slow down a little so Grandma could hold you more, but we all know that's not going to happen. Happy 2nd Birthday! Love Grandma Vicki

Checked earlier today and found Terrific 2 pictures, so when I saw the new post I was jumping up and down with excitement and hollering ...
Happy Birthday Laine
Happy Birthday Danna
Happy Birthday Forest
Happy Birthday Pius

Ask Mommy and/or Daddy to demonstrate for the full effect.

Now where are those cakes? The babes wanted me to make sure you did not forget the cake!!!!

Have a great birthday week, Graf family. Hope to see you soon.

Correction: when I checked early this morning there were NO Terrific 2 pictures. That may make better sense.

Arrgggh. Posted a "Happy Birthday" comment ON their birthday - but at the wrong spot on the blog (I have no idea where it ended up) so Happy Birthday some more! They are so grown-up looking. May your lives be filled with many more happy's.
