1....2....3....4 babies!

On July 29, 2008, 4 adorable babies shook the earth with their entrance into the world. Not long after their birth, we experienced a 5.4 magnitude earthquake! During their 2 month stay in the hospital, I had the privilege of taking care of them as one of their 15 primary nurses. We immediately fell in love with the babies (in birth order-Anthony, Michael, Jaileigh, & Jakob) and their awesome parents, Amber & Mike. I've been fortunate enough to keep in touch with the family since they've left the hospital. And here are some pictures from my last two visits to the family that was once 2, now SIX!

This is Jakob. He was the peanut of the bunch when he was first born. Not so much anymore.
Jaileigh got her nails polished by Melissa. Pretty pink. And notice her little bitty bracelet from daddy.
Anthony cuddling w/ Jess.
The family getting interviewed by CBS.

Michael. Mr. Mellow.

Me & Mr. Personality, Jakob.

We tried getting them together for a little photo shoot.....unfortunately, it didn't last long.

Jaileigh was NOT up for it AT ALL. Jakob (top) didn't seem to mind. =)

Jakob's cute little feet.

Bottles, medication syringes, pacifiers, nipples, etc. Can you imagine???

We watched the news clip LIVE on TV! Can you see me???
I think this is Anthony (?)....

The princess finally fell asleep....phew.

New members of the household.

Jess changin' diapers~

How could daddy not spoil her???

Oh boy. Jaileigh goin' a little cross-eyed. She's still so stinkin' cute.
She's thinking...."I know I'm cute. So what?"
Well...Amber & Mike have definitely had their hands full, but they've been blessed with 4 little bundles of joy. I am so happy that all the munchkins are healthy, happy, & strong!

Good pictures Sharon, but I don't know how you manage to remember who's who? If they were my kids, I'd have them wear bracelets til they're 10.
