Not much news, but our babies are cute!

We had a good time with the babies today.  We are especially thankful for our pastors and elders coming to pray over Seth specifically this afternoon.  Thank you also to everyone who joined in with us from afar!  During that time and for quite a while afterward, we were able to spend time touching and supporting (not quite holding) Seth.  He handled it very well-- seemed to love it.  He was very alert and observant the whole time.

His situation has not changed, so please keep praying for him.  Please also pray that David and Grace will gain weight.  Grace is just tiny still and David hasn't gained for the past three days.  He's doing great, though.  They actually took him off his pulse oxygen monitor since he's had no troubles oxygenating for days.  One less wire to be attached to.

Bedtime.  Love to all.

  1. No news is good news with these little ones! Praying for Seth especially tonight.... Issac's picture is so darling, sure wish you could bottle and sell some of that energy. Who was it that said "energy is wasted on the young"? Us grandma's could use just a bit of it! Praying from Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri...

  2. Man, I was fighting tears looking at those amazing babies. Seth is so big! Just looking at him it is hard to believe he is struggling so much. They are absolutely amazing Carrie and Gavin. Miss you guys over here.

    Love, Kelly

  3. Thank you so much for sharing those beautiful pictures!! Isaac is so cute and looks like he is having such a good time. Those babies all get more precious every time I see them. I pray for all of you several times a day and especially for Seth. Those pictures of him make me smile and cry all at the same time.

  6. Love seeing all the beautiful pictures of your babies! Still and always praying for you all! Love, Amy Long

  7. We have been praying for these precious babies. God is faithful. I haven't written to you all, but I am Joelyn (Stolte) Grant. I am a NICU nurse. Our 4th child a daughter is named Grace and has the same birthday as the quints. She is now 12. All four of our children 18 years to 12 years are enjoy reading your blog and praying for your whole family!

    1. HIGH FIVE to you, Joelyn, fellow NICU nurse!! Ok, I've been out of it for 16 years, but still have felt right at home following these little guys!

    2. Ha! SECOND HIGH FIVE, to BOTH OF YOU from another fellow NICU nurse (and partner in prayer) !! :) Laurie Smoak :) xo

  8. So much encouragement, it is such a privilege to be a part of what God is doing in your lives and ours as well. I am blessed by your reports, pictures and hearts. I am blessed by the people leaving comments and prayers. May Jesus continue to strengthen and support you as He answers prayer and glorifies Himself in and through your lives.

  9. I want you to know that today was my "Seth's" birthday, 32 and please know that we had a Seth prayer time. Love the pictures of all the babies but I will say the one with all of your hands on Seth just warmed my heart and I know that God's perfect will is being done. My God continue to provide you and your family with His mercy, wisdom & love as you walk this new path with your children. Know that they are prayed for many times and day and that we have fallen in love with them and you through this blog. I wasn't a blog follower until I found yours. May the Lord bless you and those sweet kids!
