The Little Things Thursdays: Installment #4

Wowzers!  Is it really Thursday already???  Seriously, with four babies at home time literally FLIES!

1. Our Occupational Therapist, Laurie came this week for one of our bi monthly sessions.  She was impressed with how well everyone is spoon-feeding and how the quad table works.  One concern I had was that Rylin still does not tolerate tummy time well.  Laurie taught me a new way to do modified tummy time with a chair cushion.  It gets Rylin up on her knees and working her core and neck muscles in a new way.

2. Lily has been trying very hard this week to convince us that we actually have quints and she is the fifth baby.  Wherever the babies are, Lily is close by.  We have been working on teaching the babies to pet her gently.  They just love touching her and do pretty well with close supervision.  Lily also has been doing very well with them and tolerates all of their squeals and erratic movements.  We try to praise her often and pet her so she doesn’t feel neglected.

This picture just makes me happy.  Rylin's smile is absolutely contagious.

3. The quads turned seven months old yesterday.  At seven months, most of the six month clothes are getting snug and we moved up to size three diapers (except on Sydney of course). Everyone is officially teething and Mason even has two teeth erupting.  Mason is still the only roller, but we are working on it with the other three.  During every wake time, I entice them with novel toys and nudge them a bit, but no takers on the rolling.  We are also starting to work on sitting with less support.  Rylin and Harper occasionally balance on their own, we just provide a safety net in case they tip backwards.   They are soaring with spoon feeds and beginning to cry for me to feed them faster!

Here's the obligatory monthly crib photo.  I was so excite4d they finally fit into their Quad Squad onsies given to us by a fellow quad mama.

  1. Your babies are so adorable. I love Lily! We have had two Yorkies, got both at six weeks of age. One lived 14 years and one lived 16 years! The oldest weighed about 5 pounds and the other around 7. They have been gone for several years and we still miss them! Your quads are growing so fast and so cute!

    • Aw, thanks! We LOVE Lily too! She is such a sweet girl and so tolerant of the babies. I hope she lives as long as your Yorkies so the quads can grow up with her. She just turned four this month. We had a toy poodle when I was a kid and I treated her like a baby doll, she was a lot like Lily.
      Our other fur baby, Sasha is not quite as interested in the babies and prefers to hide from them. 😦

  2. Love love love the onesies, super cute!!!
    I love our OT too, she always shows me things to do with them that I would never have thought of.
    I can’t believe all of yours are in 6 month clothes! I feel like when Luke an Haylie are 16 they are still going to be rocking the size 3 month clothes!
    I can’t wait for play dates, I feel like its going to look a little bit like baby bumper cars! 🙂

    • I am surprised you’re still rocking three month stuff. Sydney could, but I got tired of sorting so she wears stuff a bit loose!

      Oh I am so looking forward to play dates!

  3. The chair cushion is a great idea. We have the same quad squad onesies and I think ours may fit now. We just switched to six month clothes, only Harrison will need 9 months soon for the length! And yes, all are teething, which has its challenging moments!!

    • If our onesies fit yours should too. Better get them out before they are too small! I’m surprised you just moved to six month clothes, Harper the Haas almost needs nine months! He forgot he was a preemie. Oh teething….fun times!
