Happy 1st Birthday Suzan, Anna, Bethany and Brielle!

Wow, oh wow! The day has come! The girls are now ONE YEAR OLD! Woo hoo! We survived the first year with quadruplets! YAY!!!! Today and this coming weekend will be filled with lots of pictures, lots of celebrating and lots of cake and ice cream. We'll remember back to a year ago (especially for me, being the one carrying them and undergoing the most craziest thing in the world...delivering high-order multiples!!) when the girls were born. How tiny they were! How amazing they looked! How sweet and precious they were and still are! And how good and faithful and perfect and loving and generous God was to us, to see us through it all!!!!

Don't worry, there will be more posts to come ;) Some pictures. Some posts for each of the girls. Some video. But here is a glimpse into what happened a year ago. Man, I can see it now (insert Wayne's World flashback skit here ;) )...

March 4th, 2008 (32.3 weeks): As it turns out, my water (or someone's water) broke at 1:00AM Tuesday, March 4th. At first I thought "what is this? did I have a pee accident or is this my water breaking?" So I called my nurse and we got me checked out. Turns out it wasn't pee, as it kept trickling. Then I started to have regular contractions (about 4 min apart) a couple of hours (about 3:00AM) after the water breaking. They gave me a shot of terbutaline to hold off the contractions. That helped a bit. Then, I had to make emergency phone calls to Paul and my mom at 6:00AM saying "um, my water broke and the c-section is scheduled for 8:30AM. Please get here ASAP." Poor Paul and Jared. Paul had to get Jared to a friend's house that early.
