Yay For Daddy!

Hello Cox Quad Followers! It's been a good week here in Baby Land.
First of all... Bret graduated!!! This was his toughest semester by far. He knew going into it he would be dealing with working full time and going to school full time while anticipating me being in the hospital on bedrest, the babies' arrival, and a long stressful nicu ride. At the same time he/we knew that if he did successfully finish this semester, he would be home around the same time our babies came home... and he is! For the first time EVER he goes to work and comes home, like a "normal" person. I Love it! Congrats Babe, I'm so so proud of you. Now take a break (haha a break with quads?) and enjoy your family, you deserve it!
We got to get out of the house a few times this week, thank goodness! Baxlyn had her eye exams on Tuesday and like Korbin's, are developmentally right where they should be. She won't have to go back for another year! Monday we took a family trip to the hospital to take a few long overdue pics with some of our favorite doctors - pics coming soon!

Bret and I took the babies on our first family walk around the neighborhood the other night... you would have thought we were walking a ten legged bright orange dinosaur from the looks we got. There were several people who stopped us along the way to "ooh aww" and ask questions, one lady even knew the babies' names.... wow!
Bret and the girls.
Oh... and one more way to use the multi-functional Boppy!

My Sweet Little Bit Baxlyn

Ok, this I LOVE!
The girls have been doing this "Hold Me, Hold Me" thing lately... especially at night... ugh. Anyways, Kylee was going at it the other day and would not let me put her down without throwing a huge fit. Korbin was tucked away peacefully in his boppy chair so I thought what the heck... let's try it. Maybe she just needs someone... not necessarily me, just someone. Sure enough brother did the trick. It looks posed, I know, but it's not. Korbin held on to her and she went right to sleep. So sweet!

"Mommy won't hold you? It's ok I got you sister."

Hope this made you smile!


  1. Those pictures are so cute! You gotta love that brother/sister affection. So precious! Glad you're settling in at home and getting out once in a while. I am seriously in awe of you!

  2. Congratulations Bret! We are so proud of you! The way you've come through this and all of the responsibility that is on you leaves us in awe! Way to step up to the plate!! Enjoy your 'normal life' now! Have fun!

  12. Congrats, Bret! We miss you guys and are praying for all of you everyday!

  13. Awww, so sweet! My twins love to snuggle together. I suppose they most likely always will. Totally made me smile. :)

  14. Aww the one of Korbin holding his sis is sooooooo cute! :) He looks so diff already in this pic. I can't wait to see the recent ones. :) I have been good and not peeked yet. HAHA.

  15. Bret and Heather,
    I have not seen pics of the little ones since they were born. I didn't know that you still had this site going. Beth posted it on facebook so I took a look tonight. They are adorable!! I am so glad that God answered all the prayers and they are all doing so good!! I had no idea that Bret was going to school during all the excitement. He must have amazing concentration and study skills. I am so glad that your wonderful family is doing so well. Keep up the good work. From Linda Kotecki, from Michigan
