Phew! It feels so good to be back! To say things have been a little crazy over the last 7 weeks would be a TOTAL understatement. Having 4 kids is CRAZY!!! 

So I have alot to catch you up on so lets go back a few weeks. 
On Oct 19th our beautiful twin girls were born. 

Here is my last belly picture before they were born! 
36w2d with Twins 
I can not believe I was ever that big!
Since Greysen was born vaginally and Harper was born via emergency c-section, I had one hell of a recovery. Thankfully all of my family and friends were AMAZING and provided us with meals for 2 weeks! 
This is where I spent most of those first 2 weeks (before Mike had to go back to work) 

The boys have done REALLY well with adjusting to the girls. 

Sweet Holden LOVES them and kisses them every chance he gets. That kiss is usually preceded by a headbutt and followed up with a slap in the face. 
But hey, A KISS IS A KISS!!

London is a little less enthusiastic. Sure he loves his baby sisters but he has only held them once. 

When the girls were born they looked EXACTLY alike. To the point that when we left the hospital, we painted Greysen's nails so we wouldn't mix them up. We even thought about having them tested to see if they are identical, however as time passes they look less and less alike.  They were Di/Di twins so more then likely they are fraternal, but there is still about a 25% chance they could be identical.

More Recent , this was last week when they were 6 weeks old. 

OK, so now to the GOOD STUFF!

Having four children this close in age is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo 
 HARD! No I didn't just fall asleep on the "o" key (I needed to clarify that because I am so tired these days,  that there is always that possibility). I am in 100% survival mode. Let me tell you a little something about having kids. When you have one you think.."Omg, this is so hard. I can't imagine having two kids". Then when you have two kids you think..."Omg, how did I ever think one kid was hard. This is freaking impossible" Then 11 months later when you end up with baby number 3 and 4 you think..."Omg, Screw it! Is it time to drink yet?"

Simple things like taking that adorable one month picture, become such a task that you end up doing it 10 days late. And then instead of the 75 pictures you take in hopes of getting that perfect shot like you did with the first two take this picture while screaming "Holden stop eating those cheerios you just found under the couch cushion...oh hell, never mind you're quiet, keep eating." Look down check the picture and say "GOOD E-DAMN-NOUGH"

You eventually learn that it is really a successful day as long as all 4 children are alive and unharmed at bedtime. So what if London's diet consisted of 4 nurtigrain bars and a hotdog. He ate right. So what if I started crying when all four kids were crying for almost 2 hours straight. The day eventually ended, right about the time Mike got home and I chugged a glass of boxed wine out of a red solo cup. We survived RIGHT! So-freaking-what if I bribed Holden with a ring pop to quietly sit in his high chair for 30 mins so I could change and nurse the girls without fear of flying toys nailing them in the head. SO WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!

At the end of the day we are all happy, healthy, and in my case....slightly buzzed. 
(Yeah and I give the girls a nightly bottle of formula....SO WHAT!!!)

It's these moments that make it all worth it. 

This is our CRAZY life now and we are surviving and LOVING every minute of it!

And I don't even have time to proof read this post...

What a beautiful family. Please consider watching my story and voting for me to win a free ivf cycle - we have many things in common :). The site is down right now, but it should be up in a few hours:

All you have to do is click this link and vote for John and Mary Clement. We have entered to win in the Secondary Fertility Category since we are fortunate enough
to have already succeeded with IVF in 2010. Since then, we have had 3 losses trying to give Zoe a sibling. Our story is shown in more detail in the video we submitted. The top 5-10 vote winners in each category (primary and secondary) will move on to the finals.

I asked Dr.Oloye to cast a twin spell. I have fertility problems and have been trying for almost 2 years. I began to give up hope. I came across Dr.Oloye and thought it was worth a shot. I was a bit sceptical at first but ordered a triple cast, so it didn't exactly break the bank and I decided to ask her for help. I wasn't sure what the outcome would be but within a few days I received a letter with a spell and a charm. I did what the instructions said. I had a scan last week and I'm 9 weeks pregnant with twins. I cannot believe it. I want to say a huge thank you. I often emailed for advice and Dr.Oloye always replied with a straight answer. They are my miracle babies.You have nothing to lose with her and we would highly recommend her work
