Happy 6 months

"Give thanks in all circumstances"- 1 Thess. 5: 18
Yeah! They have been with us for 6 months now!
Just to show what a great God we serve here is a little reminder.

This is how they started out and now:

Annab.: 1 lb 4 oz, 10.8 in now 10 lbs 13 oz, 21 1/4 in
Lili: 2 lbs 2 oz, 12.6 in now 11 lbs 15 oz, 22 1/2 in
Hanna: 1 lb 15 oz, 13.6 in now 11 lbs 9 oz, 22 1/4 in
Tomi: 2lbs 9 oz, 13 in now 10 lbs 12 oz, 21 1/2 in
Mate: 1 lb 11 oz, 13 in now 12 lbs 4 oz, 22 1/4 in

They are so alert, playful. They return a friendly smile. Their favourite discovery is their finger(s) in all kinds of combination (middle fingers, left and right thumb). Sometimes they suck on each others fingers.
We give thanks for all the extra milk, which has been provided. Yes, they are still on full breast milk, which is such a godly provision.
As parents we are able to enjoy them due to our wonderful volunteer network from College Park Church.
Dave and I get out and yes, we have 8 hours of sleep at night because the babies sleep 8 hours due to strict scheduling.
It's a fun stage!

Thank yous

Unbelievable! On the 19th of April the Quints will be 6 months old. But the cool thing is they look like little 3 months old so we get to enjoy the Baby stage longer.
Looking back to the previous weeks and months we have a verse on our heart, which perfectly describes our life with full of help. We dedicate this verse to all of our precious volunteers.
" Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering Gods grace in its various forms. " 1 Pt 4:10
This is exactly how the body of Christ (mostly from our church College Park )came together to make our life smoother with five Babies.
We made so many dear friends throughout this time. As we share our Babies with others it's so wonderful to see how couples, single friends, grandpas, grandmas, daddies to be who change diapers maybe the first time love on our Babies.

Is it monotonous? Not at all because you add so much color to our family. It's very dynamic.
Thanks for praying, coming, serving and loving.
Dave and Manna
