But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD's love is with those who fear him and his righteousness with their children's children . . . Psalm 103:17

Doctor's visit pictures

. . . from the babies' 4-month-old well-baby check-up. They're less than 6 weeks adjusted age, but were born more than 4 months ago; amazing! He's always been faithful. I want to watch the slideshow again (posted back in mid-October). They've come so far in just these past two months!

Grace was 1 lb 12 oz at birth. She's now 7 lb 15 oz with a lovely layer of soft fat over her whole body! She's off the cannula up to 8 hours a day now! Marcie is 8 lb 11 oz, Seth is over 9 lb 8 oz (that was 4 days ago), David is 10 lb 1 oz and Will is 11 lb 10 oz - that's 9 pounds heavier than he was at birth as our largest preemie! God is GOOD!

The babies think it's exhausting to visit the doctor! Ready to head home now. Left to right: Grace, Marcie, Will, David.

Someone with twin girls gave us matching girl carseats and someone with triplet boys gave us matching boy carseats. They are all virtually unused and the same make and model so are interchangeable in the 5 bases (which, for those of you who don't know, remain in the car, secured by a latch system or seat belt. The baby seats just snap in).
How cool that God is obviously in the details of our lives! :)

All loaded up, heading home. It was wonderful to have a lovely helper along with all four babies.


  1. They are just so beautiful, glad to hear they are all doing well and getting a more regular schedule. Hope Seth is soon able to join in on the fun.. Wishing you the best of holiday seasons, so much to be thankful for

  2. I can just imagine the looks in the visiting room at your Pediatricians office! Blessings x 5 that's for sure, blessings.....

  3. Thank You, Lord - what awesome little blessings. And, thank You, for working out all the little details. We have no doubt that You are in control, Lord, and just praise You for that special individual love that You have for each of us. Please continue to hold these precious little ones in Your healing hands, and bring them all to full strength and wholeness. Thank You for keeping Carrie, Gavin and Isaac close and safe, and give them the peace and strength to travel this road, and all the helpers needed for the journey. All praise and honor to You. Amen.

  4. This is a great article and I am so glad I came across it. My family and I just moved to Dallas and we have been looking for a doctor for my son. It was a very long process and we did a lot of research to find a doctor in Dallas that was accessible and affordable. Thankfully we came across Dr. Gary Berlin of Carmel Care. He provides some great services like home visits. He can give a full examination right from your home. I have to agree that home visits are so helpful especially when you do not have transportation sometimes. He also is very reasonably priced. I would highly recommend Dr. Berlin and his practicing methods.
