Group Picture!

Time is flying by so quickly, I can't believe the babies are already 7 weeks old. Bret and I catch ourselves saying little things like "Oh, I can't wait until they can laugh" "Can't wait until they can walk" "Can't wait until we can sign them up for baseball and gymnastics....". I have to remind myself daily of how quickly time has gone by so far and how in no time at all of our "baby days" will be over and we will wish we could have just one more day in baby land. For now, we will enjoy their sweet innocence and cherish every minute spent with them!

The boys are still bedding together, but the girls have been split up due to Baxlyn's reflux. She needs to be a little more elevated so gravity is on her side. Below is a picture of the little reunion they had this weekend. This was my first time to see them all together side by side... I LOVED LOVED IT! It still (and forever will) amazes me that they're here and are all mine...
(In birth order Brody, Baxlyn, Kylee, & Korbin)

Sweet sisters :)

Napping in their clothes basket.

Silly Boys!
(OK... Silly Mommy!)

Sweet Baxlyn. We expect her home very soon :)
She was having a little/big problem with reflux so they mix her milk with a thickener the consistency of nectar to help keep it down.
She is taking all 8 feedings by bottle, which is the requirement for going home. Another requirement, going 5 days without bradycardia... she's already
gone 8. Soon she will have her car seat test and be out the door!
I'm super excited, I just hope the others follow behind her - QUICKLY!

Little Miss Kylee who is taking every other feeding by bottle!

Brody and his post-bath fro.
He is at 2-3 bottles a day.


Korbin havin' a moment with Dad while getting a bottle!
He is currently at 3 bottles a day and doing well.

That's all for now! Have a great week and God Bless!

Kylie, thank you and to answer your question about Brody and his recovery. Bret and I are very happy with our decision to have Brody's surgery and feel it was successful. The doctors continue to measure his head daily. The swelling has gone down and his head has measured the same for quite a while, therefore we assume the shunt is doing it's job and draining the fluid from his brain properly. His incisions are healing nicely and shouldn't leave bad scaring at all!


  1. What beautiful photos! Just wondering how Brody is recovering from his surgery. Are you all pleased with how the procedure went? Is everything OK with the swelling now?

  2. They are beautiful babies! Congratulations! :)

  3. Your babies are just beautiful.

  4. Way to go Cox babies! The are so beautiful. I hope they are all home for you soon. Take care and you all are always in our prayers.

  8. Your babies are beautiful! When I looked at the picture of Bret burping Baxlyn, I realized that she's the size that Shannon was when I first started taking care of her as her nanny - small, sweet, and precious! I'm so excited for you both to start bringing home your babies before too long.

  9. They are so beautiful! I can't believe it has already been 7 weeks! WOW!

  10. They are adorable. The group picture is wonderful...the girls look like they are talking to each other, Brody looks like he is saying, "I had nothing to do with it!" and Korbin looks like he is saying..."fine don't listen to me but I'm going to keep on talking!"
    Thanks for sharing these precious babies with us!

  11. Heather-your babies are so cute. I am so glad that they are doing well and I pray for them. Thanks you for sharing them with us.
