Wombmates Remain Cribmates

Unbelievable. Yep, it’s true. The Wombmates are still Cribmates. 14 Months Old Today and Clark and Brooks are still sharing their crib. (Isaac and Henry each sleep in their own cribs.) It just gets cuter all the time. Take a look:

14 Months is the longest we’ve ever heard of anyone co-bedding so we’ll be giving Guinness a call to see if we can get in! (Kidding) Someday when you’re flipping through the pages, looking at world records for the longest eyebrow hair, the most weddings attended by a best man, most coconuts smashed in one minute, or the world’s tallest parsley plant there they’ll be precious as precious can be….

If not the award for world’s longest co-bedders perhaps the world’s sweetest?????

To see our history of co-bedding quads go here.

    Unbelievably precious, cute, adorable, sweet, etc. etc.!!! How fun that they get to have a snuggle fest every night! Do you think they’ll still want to do this when they’re teenagers? : )

    Your co-bedding quad photos are precious. You are so smart to keep them together. I mentioned co-sleeping with my boys in my post this morning.

    So sweet…there’s nothing cuter than a baby sleeping…except maybe two of them cuddled up together! 🙂 That is so precious.

    I just noticed when I looked back at the history, in the one picture they were sucking their thumbs. Do they still? I have one thumb sucker-only when she’s going to bed…and then Seth, who is a few days younger than your boys sucks his middle and ring finger only when he is going to sleep. It is cute to see them get a blanket all cuddled up and suck those fingers…it keeps them little.

    I just went through your co-sleeping posts! The pictures and videos are tooo cute!!! Love them!!!

    Our boys STILL share beds!!! They don’t HAVE too…(They each have their own beds….) but still totally prefer too!!!!

    The 8 and 10 yr old share the queen size spare bed downstairs and our we have one of those bunk beds with the single on top and double on the bottom in the other boys room (5 and 6 yr olds). They both sleep on the bottom together every night!! It’s true!!! They just sleep so much better together like that!!

    I know I hate sleeping alone at night!! Why wouldn’t they???!!!

    You do it for as long as it works so good for you!!!

    that is just incredibly sweet that they are still sharing a crib. they looks so peaceful and sweet sleeping next to each other. we started out with all 3 in the same crib and then moved james to his own crib. i just recently had to separate the girls too because they kept kicking each other in the head. i was so sad to see their co-bedding days end.

    Hello!
    I have twin girls that are 9 years old and they still sleep together, in a double bed. And often, they end up in a place much similar to your sweet boys. It makes me smile, still. They have never had their “own” bed, although every once in a while, they decide to sleep on the floor in separate sleeping bags…
    Enjoy your boys- it goes by in a blink of the eye!
    Blessings.

    So cute and is making me wish for naptime! Love how Baby on the Right has his arm through the crib – he’s just so relaxed and just hanging out. I love watching Jackson sleep, watchimg him twist & turn and get all relaxed.

    That is so neat that they are still co bedding. I have cousins that are twins and they co bedded together until the were to big for the crib (two years). Then they got bunk beds and took them apart and had the beds right next to each other and that’s how they sleep still today at 7 years old with their beds right next to each other. Go for it!!

    So adorable! My two like their own space and only co-bedded their first 2 months. They are very independent. We actually can’t even put their cribs too close together or all they do is play and not sleep. hehe…I have some funny videos of them doing just that while at Grandma’s house last summer. hehehe…

    I think my heart just skipped a beat… too sweet for words. I wish my kids would have done that. I had to separate them really early on. What a beautiful thing.
    HUGS!
    Miss you guys this week.

    I’d never get anything done if I were you – – I don’t think I could ever take my eyes of off them…….P R E C I O U S is Right!!!! I’m guessing they will grow up to be BEST buddies too!!! I’m curious – are the boys bigger than most quads their age? I just wondered if quads tend to usually be on the small scale compared to a single birth child. 🙂 anyway – – they are just as adoable as ever!!! Have a great weekend – – Love ya – Aunt Dar Dar!

    Awwwwwwwwwww! How precious is that!!
    What is it like when you put them down for a nap, do they play for a while together? Are they always that close together in bed? This is just so unheard of….and awfully adorable. Melted my heart!

    Clark and Brooks you are too precious! A testament that brothers really can get along and like it! Maybe you can come down to Texas and give our boys a little talk about this very subject! 😉

    Jen: I found your blog through the Steece’s and love catching up with your 4 cutie pies. I have a really weird question, as my sister is expecting twins…do your boys know their own names? It almost sounds remedial, I know, but can you stand at the door and call “Henry” and he will turn around. My sister is worried about that with her twin boys and you are so honest and sharing, I thought I would ask.

    thanks,

    If these aren’t the sweetest pics ever! They just look so cozy and sweet. I can just imagine you standing above them and how can you not smile. It is so sweet that their love is so evident. 🙂

    Too cute. I have boy girl twins and their older brother, adopting from foster care. Every February they are the same age, this year it will be four, but they sleep in a pile whenever possible, I really don’t see how they get any sleeping done, but they look all cozy.
