We Took Pictures So It Would Last Longer…

By popular demand – The 1st Birthday Pictures! I don’t have too much commentary for these; they pretty much speak for themselves. =) Besides, y’all don’t come here for my words – you come here for the pics! I did a mix of b&w; and color, because I think some pictures almost demand it!

(Left to Right: Isaac, Henry, Clark, Brooks)
Hooray! A family picture – These are hard to come by!

Highlights from 02-02-08 – Did I tell you that Brooks (bottom left corner) stood for about 20 seconds on his own to celebrate his big day?

Diggin’ into the Monkey Cupcakes…Love that they’re still wearing their socks

Henry’s Chocolate Mug

Brooks intently eating each bite

Clark wondering where the Crisco icing disappeared to

Isaac thinks cupcakes are magically delicious

Quadpa and Quadma Myers

Quadpa and Quadma Murray

Myers Madness

Murray/Cronkhite/Fallon/Green Fam (Brad’s side definitely has more variety in last names!)

Wonderful, wonderful memories! The day just flew!
Now, for all you “lurkers” – it took me quite a while to download, upload, edit, and post so you better at least leave a comment and tell me which picture is your favorite! =)

    You got me – I’m a lurker that found you by way of the Tubre Quads when her babies were born (Jaclyn is in my extended family). Right before she delivered, I read all of your old posts about your babies’s first months in the NICU and at home and it gave me hope for what I knew what be a few bumpy months ahead for her quads. I have continued reading ever since! Happy First Birthday to your little ones – they are so precious.

    How can I pick one? That’s NOT fair! Love the family pics. What a special memory they will be. I do think Brooks is awfully cute in his “holding stance” for those 20 seconds he had for himself..

    You did a great job. Who had the camera? What a fun day. Thanks for sharing with us!

    Yes, I’m a lurker and I LOVE the first picture of your family…so precious!!! My little boy turned 1 today so it’s fun to watch your boys birthday celebration. We’re partying on Sat! Also, I loved that on their birthday you prayed in the exact time of their birth. My husband and I will be doing that in just 15 minutes!

    I love the Myers Madness family photo. Too bad Danny didn’t make it. Haven’t seen your family in person for a long time. My family has enjoyed following the progress of your boys for over a year now. Enjoy them quick, they are growing up fast.

    How can you pick of favorite of something this adorable!!!
    Hey – since you guys are famous, I think you should figure out a way to do “Brad and Jen plus four” (Since I’m a huge fan of the “other” family with lots of kids! 🙂 I’d totally DVR you!)

    I can’t choose a favourite picture either, they are all lovely. Congratulations to Brooks on his new skill, perhaps he will be able to get himself out next time he falls in the toybox!
