Happy Birthday Lupei Quadruplets!

IMG_9223-001This is the beginning of a new life! Words cannot express how blessed we are. What a special day!  We are very proud to announce the birth of our FOUR babies, true miracles! No matter how much we tried to “plan” this event, once again God showed us that He controls everything. I won’t get into details now because I am very tired but we wanted to share some pictures of our angels. Many of you are not used to seeing preemies, so you might be shocked. Disregard the tubes and all the medical equipment that surrounds them; they are tiny but true champions! We are so proud of each and every single one of them and they are the cutest, most beautiful babies! 

Baby A-boy:  Isaac Nathan Lupei born at 11:03 AM, 3 pounds 5oz
Baby B-girl:  Hannah Liana Lupei born at 11:04 AM, 2 pounds 14oz
Baby C-girl: Alexis Madeline Lupei born at 11:04 AM, 2 pounds 13oz
Baby D-boy: Andrew Davis Lupei born at 11:05 AM, 3 pounds 9oz

Their weights are a little different than they were at our last ultrasound. The Dr. told us that it is hard to get the exact numbers when the babies are inside the belly.

They all look pretty much the same right now, it’s kind of hard to tell who is who. And all of them have the same hats 🙂 Thank you all for your messages, txts and phone calls! It means a lot to see how many of you care and pray for us. Please keep our quadlings in your prayers. They need a lot of attention and supervision. It will take a while until they get out of the NICU, but we know all of them will come home soon.

This has been the most amazing day ever. We will never forget those moments of anticipation and excitement. It was scary too, we have never been in this position before. But everything was ok, I can’t believe I had a C-section today! I will write a special post with lots of details but not today.

Lori
First day as a Mommy of Quads 🙂

  1. Lori, First of all, I’m impressed that you got a blog post out today complete with pictures!!! I was so groggy and sickish after delivery my sister just did a terse announcement that our babies were delivered. It took me weeks to get more up.
    Secondly, they are gorgeous! They are great sizes, even though smaller than you anticipated and seem to be doing really well on day one. Prayers for you as you walk the next step: NICU journey. Know the quad mamas are all here to support you.

  2. wooow, sunt atat de fdrumosi, mi-au dat lacrimile cand v-am vazut, ma bucur sa aud ca sunteti cu totii bine, felicitari dragilor, Domnul sa va binecuvanteze, sunteti o familie extraordinara, va pup

  3. CONGRATULATIONS Lori and Oly! We are soooooo happy for you! The babies are just beautiful!! Love the pic of Andrew already holding daddy’s hand. That’s Priceless!!
    You have an amazing and fun journey ahead. We will keep you and your sweet little babies in our prayers. We look forward to seeing you soon. With love, Tia Moldovan and family!

  4. Phase 2 has begun!!! Your babies are here!!! They are all beautiful Lori, you have done an amazing job. Time for your quad squad to start living large! Hopefully it’s just weeks before you complete your journey and have them all home. Congrats, congrats, congrats, congrats!!
