Fun In The Sun!!

Today was a really fun day!! Hannah Noelle had successfully spent the night over at a friend's house so we get up, fed the babies, changed them into their swimming suits, picked up Big Sister and headed to Coach, Kae-Pae and Jayce's to spend the day with my parents!
The Boys!
The Girls & Gunner!
Gunner eating the toys, Go Figure!!
Cannon giving the grass a try!
Look at that belly!!
Gunner trying to get his ball snack back!
Come on girls, ya gotta keep up!!
Lauren up to No Good!
Cannon trying to climb the stairs!
Mom, she's in my space!!
And they all followed!!
Gunner was the first to make it to the top!
Lauren would not give up!!
Cannon SO tired!!
Avery getting her bottle from Me-Mom!
Lauren getting her bottle from Coach!
Gunner getting his bottle from Kae-Pae
The Big Kids playing!!
Cannon still sleeping even after I changed his clothes!
Avery on the loose!
Say Cheese!
What, cheese, another snack, AWESOME?

The babies had a blast and were COMPLETELY worn out and took a great nap for Pae-Pae while Matt and I ran to Home Depot to order blinds, look at paint and crown molding. They were all in great moods this evening and were easy to feed with help from Paw-Paw and Be-Be! We laid them down at their normal time and have yet to hear a peep out of them!
We had to leave Gunner's swim trunks with Me-Mom to hem the length! To get the suckers big enough around the waist, they ended up being swim pants instead of shorts, poor fella!! Their swimming suits ranged from 3 months to 18 months! Considering they're 9 months, 7 adjusted, that just cracks me up!!
I'm sure you're thinking, I thought her mom left last week.... well, she's back. My mom and dad made a surprise visit on Thursday and are going to spend some time with us before mom's medical leave is over (she had surgery on her foot) and daddy has to go back to school (he's a professor at North Greenville University).
Two post in two days, so make sure you didn't miss yesterday's post!

Then versus Now

This excerpt is from my June 29, 2008 post.
I can give my assessment of what I think their personalities will be:
Baby A: Cannon Gregory - laid back, not much bothers him, but when he wants to be recognized, he will sure put on a show!!!
Baby B: Gunner Cole - wild and crazy!! fights with his sister, Lauren, non stop!
Baby C: Lauren Katherine (I think that's how we're spelling it) - beyond wild and crazy!! she is up more than she's asleep!
Baby D: Avery Caroline - sweet, sweet! She's so laid back and quiet, rarely makes me uncomfortable!!!

Now, here is my 9 1/2 month assessment of personalities:
Cannon Gregory: Mommy's boy! The above was a pretty true assessment, he is fairly laid back, a good bit bothers him and he can will put on a show!
Gunner Cole: Very Very loving!!! The above is SO wrong!! He is the one that will wipe away his brother and sister's tears and be the first to laugh at their jokes!
Lauren Kathryn: Another thing I got wrong with her was the spelling of her name. You can look at 20 different posts and it's spelled differently each time! I spelled it just like my Grandma Kay spelled hers, but every time I go to write it I second guess myself! Her assessment was SO wrong! She loves, loves her sleep and is BY FAR the best baby!

Avery Caroline: After reading this assessment I again for the 100th time question whether or not Avery was actually Baby C and Lauren was Baby D. The only thing that holds me to the fact that they were delivered in the correct order is the 4D ultrasound we had done at 20 something weeks. Lauren was the only one we got a face shot of and she looked identical to HN's 3D and to this day Lauren resembles HN the most! Avery is the leader of the crew!! She's always the first to do something, try something, test the boundaries! We're going to be in for it with her!!
All 4 are official crawlers now. Cannon and Lauren actually crawl on knees and hands where with Avery and Gunner it's elbows and bellies. They can make some ground like that though! Everyone but Gunner can pull up on everything and cruise their way around it! Gunner has a little big disadvantage with his weight. Most of the toys that the others pull up on just flip over when Gunner goes to use them for support! It's HILARIOUS! They love the couch and getting anything off of it that is within arms reach! We are counting down the days before we move in the house for many reasons, but also because Avery and Cannon will stand up in their beds and pull things off the counter into their cribs!!
The 100th post keeps getting better and better! I'm hoping to have 10 giveaways for that post, right now I'm at 8. Everyone needs to make sure they can comment (several people have said they have trouble) now so that when the 100 hour countdown starts for entry to the giveaways they get entered. If you have trouble commenting, e-mail me, Facebook me, something and let me know!! Some giveaways are geared towards readers with children and some are not, so everyone should see something worth entering for!! Can you tell I'm excited?
Well, Hannah Noelle is at a friends for a slumber party, the babies are all asleep, I think I'm fixing to grab a good movie and call it a night!!!

Who Loves Yo Baby?

`We do, We do!!
We love YoBaby and Your Baby and that's why we wanted to let you in on our little snack time secret!! We have tried several snacks for our munchkins that were extremely messy, not too nourishing and down right just nasty! I took advice from some of my fellow Quad Mom Bloggers and tried some YoBaby! We used it with our older daughter, but it's even better now with new ingredients, new more Eco Friendly packaging and more flavors!

As most of you know we had a low iron scare with Lauren, our tiniest. Well, we have since been on a "YoBaby Snack Diet" because after some research, I found out :
YoBaby Plus Fruit & Cereal—all the good stuff, plus important nutrients your little one needs!Over half of all babies and toddlers don’t get the recommended daily amount of iron they need. YoBaby Plus Fruit & Cereal with Iron provides 30% of your little one’s RDI for Iron in a delicious yogurt with fruit and cereal puree on the bottom.
We were also having a tough time transitioning to sippy cups because their formula/cereal combo is too thick to come through the sippy spouts. Juice and water are great and they love it, but we're still battling reflux and with the thin liquid... well, you get the idea! The last time I went to buy some YoBaby Yogurt I came across the YoBaby Drinkable Yogurt and let me tell ya, IT'S GOOD! We bought the banana flavor and the kids sucked their sippies dry! It smelt so good I had to take a taste, whew, I wish I was a baby!

And just in case you don't believe me, ask the Experts!!

The countdown to the 100th post is ON!!!
YoBaby is another one of the great giveaways we have for that post!
