We Have a New Champ! by Lew

I don't know if it was the day to day pressure or what, but Dane-O just could not maintain his elite status...Cameron took the Heavyweight Title away from Dane-O last night! I think the numbers were Cameron in at 1881 grams and Dane-O in at 1872 grams, or there abouts, I know for fact that it was by a 9 pound margin! It's like 4 pounds, 2 ounces and some change!

That's fun stuff! Brock should bash the 4 pound barrier soon as well! Summer, she's just cute!

All of The Quads are doing great. We are hoping Summer, Brock, and Cameron will be off their nasal oxygen prong things soon. Seems like they are all past due to have that stuff done and gone. We should find out more on that at our meeting on Thursday.

Tonya has been able to nurse each of the quads. Depending on what we have going with visitors, sometimes she can get each of them one feeding in a day. They don't really get all that much from the nursing, but they are learning and seem to be getting better with their suck-swallow mechanics and make progress with each attempt. All The Quads seem to love getting bathed - that's good, we like clean kids...I got to give my first baths on Sunday to Brock and Cameron - they did awesome and it was fun! It's really neat bringing Aiden and Cale in to see the babies. They just love going to see them and they are so darn nice to all of them. They both want to see them all and touch them and talk to them! When we leave, they go around to each baby and tell them they love them and tell them goodbye and tell them they'll see them tomorrow, etc. It really makes Tonya and me proud when Aiden and Cale show their true colors, real proud. All you parents out there now that feeling we are talking about. When they just blow your socks off!

This golf outing deal - unbelievable all you people out there. We really are looking forward to seeing family and friends in a couple weeks! The Quads are doing their best to pack the weight on so they can be a part of the outing as well!

Should be something coming up in The Antrim Review...

Gosh, there are so many thank you's that we need to get out there I can't keep them all straight. In fact, I can't remember all the people that have sent us baby clothes in the past couple weeks. Again I have to give a shout to the Jen K Manor Donators - some good veggies people - thank you again! That really was an awesome donation - you all should feel good about yourselves. I'll try my best with thank you's - Kay (Moeke's Mom) and John, Glenn and Tracy, Tracy's Mom, Kosakowski's, Diegel's, Jess and Hans..if I forgot you, I drink too much...

Super special thanks to Tonya's family and my family.

Also special thanks to Craven. He took me out for my first salmon fishing trip of the season...and probably my last for the next 5 years! We caught one that was longer than Cale is tall - I'll get the photo up here soon...

Gitcha game on - Go Blue!

It is great to hear that the quads are doing so well. It too would melt my heart seeing the older boys loving on their siblings. Like I've said before, you two are great parents and were hand chosen for this journey!!!

Wow--I am so glad that the babies are taking so many steps forward with very few back. What strong angels you have! Their weight gain sure seems good--go Mom! Can't wait until the day when we get to see pictures of the boys with the babies...
Love and prayers,
