We're on a Roll

 5 months old already!  We went for a check up last week, and here are their stats:       
They have grown so much, and look so big to me until I see singletons that are the same age or younger.  While we are already on the growth chart for their actual age (Jaylyn is at the very bottom, of course), they are all still small for their age.

Benjamin is 14 pounds, 14 ounces and 24 inches long.
(Big Ben)
Jaylyn is 10 pounds, 6 ounces and 23 1/4 inches long.
(Our little peanut)

Oscar is 12 pounds, 9 ounces and 23 1/2 inches long. 

Harrison is 12 pounds, 13 ounces and is 24 1/4 inches long.

We are hitting new milestones by the day it seems like.  The boys are now able to roll from their bellies to their backs, and Jaylyn will be soon to follow, I'm sure.  They have all discovered their hands in the last month, and like to suck on their fingers more than their pacifiers.  They are all smilers and cooers.  Benjamin will laugh outloud more than the others.  Everyone loves to do patty cake.  Our biggest change in the last couple of weeks has been our sleeping arrangement.  For their first four months at home, we slept downstairs; me on the couch, babies in random spots (swings, bouncy seats, boppy seats, crib).  They are now in cribs in their own room upstairs, and I am able to sleep in my own bed again...yay!!!!  It is all new for me.  With Lilya, we never put her in bed awake.  She never cried herself to sleep.  Not the case with the quads.  After their last bottle of the evening, we put them in bed...sometimes they cry, and sometimes they are so tired, they just go right to sleep.  Either way, they usually fall asleep fast, and the best part is that they are sleeping anywhere between 8 and 10 hours a night!  I can't believe how fast time flies!
We have a busy week again this week...First steps evaluations, RSV prevention shots, trick-or-treating, and our normal day to day adventures.  Some things are fun, and some are not so fun.  I think we'll make the best of the fun things.
