Goodbye, crawling!

Even after many months of watching the Fab Four learn and grow, it still amazes me how four children born within seconds of each other can reach developmental milestones at such widely varying intervals. Take, for example, the babies' road from first steps to walking:

Isaac took his first steps at the end of October and began walking full-time in the first part of December ...

Jude took his first steps at the end of December, just before their babies' first birthday, and started walking at the end of January ...

Lucy took her first steps at the beginning of December but didn't start full-on walking until the beginning of February ...

and, last but certainly not least ...

Dahlia took her first steps in mid-January and started walking across the room ... TODAY!



I think it's safe to say that we have four toddlers on our hands! I guess I'd better hurry up and learn how to run in four directions at once—that is one of the Quad Mom superpowers, right?

I like to set my treadmill to "frenetic" to train for this summer when my triplets are running around the yard. Because. hoo boy are they getting fast!

Way to go, Dahlia! I can't believe you have four walkers! I went home on Wed. a little frightened, by the way, after seeing how quickly Isaac gets around. :)

Let the games begin!! Yes, we quad-mamas do have super powers, but I also rely heavily on gates. I laugh that my kids live in "a gated community." I figure I have at least a few months until they figure out the gates, then... Who knows??
