Next, my nanny was so sweet to show up that morning with gifts for each of the babies plus a group gift. They all tore into their gift bags filled with tissue paper, sampling many of the pieces as they went, ha. The girls got adorable matching dresses and Harrison got a polo in the same color, and they loved their group toy as well.
Then my mom and step-dad came to see the babies that afternoon. My mom said she couldn't let the real occasion go by without seeing them in person! I treasure the fact that these kids are growing up so close to their grandparents, who put in a lot of sweat and tears to help raise them from the very beginning. It most surely takes a village! The quads loved playing with the wagon full of giant lego pieces that grandma brought, it's a favorite toy to date.
Right as my parents were leaving, my mother-in-law dropped by to bring some fun birthday balloons and some sweet clothing sets for the quads. I never thought I'd like dressing them in matching outfits, but as babies there's something so endearing about seeing the girls outfitted in coordinating clothes and Harrison in something boyish of the same color scheme.
I even got flowers for the apartment :)
When daddy got home from work, we broke out the bubble machine that was a birthday gift for the babies from their fellow quad buddies. At first they didn't know what to think, but quickly attempted to catch a couple bubbles in their fingers and jumped when they popped at the touch.
I also want to express my gratitude to all who have been reading along on the blog—some of you for years now, and others for just weeks. I enjoy sharing our story and am so thankful for such a supportive group out there, sight unseen, that takes the time to leave thoughtful comments, celebrate our accomplishments and lift us up in times of need. Thank you!
