Happy Thanksgiving!

I love the look on Sean’s face in this picture! He can’t take a picture with his eyes open to save his life. Just to give you an idea, we took this picture NINE times to catch him with his eyes open. Eventually, we made him close his eyes and open them on the count of 3. Hence, the slightly crazed look on his face. Of course, the babies did great right from the beginning. :-)

We spent the day with Sean’s family over here for dinner since we aren’t taking the babies out right now. Everyone brought a ton of food. In fact, I’m pretty sure there were twice as many dishes as there were people here! It was delicious and a wonderful way to spend the day! Other than tiring out, the kids did really well with the increased noise and number of people around. We considered it a success.

I want to keep this post brief, but wanted to throw out a quick update on the babies. They had their 9 month checkup this week. Everything is looking good and we now have the go ahead on baby food once the kids can sit up and seem to need the extra calories. The thing that blew us away though was how big they are getting! Look at their weights now!

Caleb:  15 lbs. 15 oz.

Abigail: 14 lbs. 3 oz.

Elijah: 16 lbs. 1 oz.

Elizabeth: 14 lbs. 1oz.

I think the boys in particular are glad that they were weighed. I couldn’t figure out why for the last week or so they have been waking up in the morning with leaky diapers. Turns out they were bigger than I thought! They’ve been sleeping more comfortably since we brought out the size 3’s. :-)

We are thankful for each of you and the way that you have loved on our family over the past year! We hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving as well!
