How to Effciently Feed Four Babies

I have lots to update you on, but first I HAVE to tell you about our feeding table! You know you’ve ordered something LARGE when a semi-truck shows up at your house. I had to snap a picture for proof!

Brooks supervised Daddy’s work as he put it together in the garage. He just can’t wait to get his hands on the power tools!

I think he likes it!

The boys just look so adorable sitting all together for their meal. Brad and I are able to pull up two chairs and feed them 1 on 2. They seem to like checking each other out. Last night was a treat for us, as they played with toys on the table while Brad and I enjoyed an entire meal! If only this table had some devise to open their mouths wider and keep their hands out of their mouths at the same time, we would be set! Next week I think we’ll be giving vegetables a shot. I’ve heard that squash and sweet potatoes are great for staining clothes. Anyone have any tricks on getting the orange out of cute baby clothes? Now would be a great time for you investors to buy up some shares in Oxi-Clean, Shout, Clorox, etc. Quads can definitely impact the stock market. By the way, IU football is 3-0, I think it’s due to our “red seat” spirit!

Of course, I had to include some video so you can see it in action!

I have many blogs in my head right now, that I need to sit down and type. We’ve had fun adventures, time with family, and some exciting news to share soon……Brad is bringing an oh so awesome blessing home in our van. It’s BIG – so big he had to take a seat out of the van to fit it in…..curious???????

    Oh the boys are just precious in their table, I can’t tell them apart, but them I’m just a drop in who loves hearing about your beautiful family! They are so quiet too, four baby boys and not a peep out of them, except for the little sneeze! You’ll have truly been blessed. Thank you for sharing with us! Your friend in East Texas.

    I kept a rubbermaid tub filled with water and baby oxyclean in the kitchen. I fed the babies in just diapers for one feeding a day and the rest of the time I would use a bib. I would just toss the bib or any soiled clothes in the tub and then take it down at the end of the day to wash. I have yet to find a stain, because they were always treated immedately.

    For stains…I used to use Zout when it was still the blue bottle but now its a different formula and a red bottle and completely worthless. I actually use Dawn dishsoap – I squirt it all over any stains and then whenever I get around to laundry it is fine. I have never not gotten a stain out. Get ready for yellow/orange cheeks, noses, ears, and everything else imaginable! Good luck!

    They are so cute. I used to think it would be difficult to feed twins. I just can’t imagine feeding four babies. And it looks like you cope really well too.

    It was a busy summer and I haven’t been able to read your blog in awhile… I cannot believe how big the boys are!

    As for the stains, when my kids were babies I would either just strip them if it was warm enough, or I would use plastic-covered feeding bibs or cheap wal-mart black t-shirts slipped over their clothes made good bibs as well. Sometimes the bibs don’t work so well because they get their hands underneath them and all over their clothes anyway, which makes the t-shirts nice.

    Good luck with feeding baby food!

    Okay – – this is TOO CUTE! and my guess for the big surprise is A COW!!! I know they will be eventually going on milk – so thought that was a good guess. And I had an uncle that brought a cow to our house when we had the farm (remember that Jennifer?) anyway – he brought the cow out in the backseat of his car…taking the seat out – – so that was a good guess from me! hahaha! and gave you a laugh I’m sure!!!

    How exciting to be able to sit down with the kids! Have they learned to throw food yet? That might be the ultimate cafeteria fight right in your kitchen! LOL.

    As for the surprise…you’ve added a Saint Bernard into the family for the kids to ride on??? huh, huh?

    I love this blog! The boys are so cute sitting at their table. I share your blog with several co-workers. They cannot believe how big and healthy looking all of them are now! Can’t wait to hear what the big surprise is. Don’t keep us waiting much longer. :)

    hey girl,

    i mean, that’s the BEST seeing your little men in that big table – what fun memories it will bring! ok, for the stains…i use dreft spray. So far all her clothes are stain free…however, feeding naked is always a good idea as well. That’s what i do with Lyles (the younger of the two that i babysit). Sweet potatoes are Claire’s favorite too!

    My daughter’s Mother’s Day Out has one of those tables that feeds 6 or 8 kids. It is pretty funny when they area all in there trying to steal one another’s food.

    the gerber sweet potato puffs stain worse than the sweet potatoes themselves! Even treated immediately, I still couldn’t get those stains out! Go with banana, corn, or apple flavors instead!
