Quints By Surprise – Film Day Pics (Part 2)

90 Comments 11 October 2010

We are bummed that the 1st season of “Quints by Surprise” has come to an end!  Everyone has been so incredible and supportive of us since the show started airing so it is sad to see it go.  BUT, we are keeping our fingers crossed for many more to come and hopefully soon!  TLC has not made a decision yet as to whether they will bring us back so we will let you all know as soon as we know!!  There is a silver lining to the show ending, however…hopefully now I’ll have more time to focus on the blog……   :)

By the way, if you would like to message TLC and let them know your opinion of the show, go here:  TLC Viewer Relations.

Before we get to the pics, I wanted to share a few videos that a couple of JonesLife friends put together for our Gang of Six.  We love these videos…thank you, girls!!

Here we go for round two of the film day pics.  Princess Party Palace and Snake Farm here we come for a day of Jones Family fun!  As the pictures below attest, the princesses had a blast dressing up and being girlie-girls!  And Jack, well, I took the boy to see a bunch of crazy animals and eat barbecue…you don’t need pictures to know he had a great time!!

Pre-Party Palace Pic – Eliot is enthused, as always…

Brooklyn’s princess diva sixth sense had kicked in and she wanted to get inside!

Britton is born to be a DIVA!!

Lady Lila

Ryan put her inner lion to rest for the day…

Brooklyn loved it!

The Four Princesses

Princess Party Time!!

Can you say “Ring Leader”??

My beautiful Casey Ann…always a princess, never a queen! :)

And we can’t leave Jack out.  Here we are on our trip to the Snake Farm…sorry, the photographer had the day off…haha!

First off, thank you to everyone who has commented on the blog, emailed us, tweeted us, hit us up on Facebook, or otherwise reached out to support our family and the show!  The response has been overwhelmingly positive, inspirational, heart warming, and full of love, love, and more love!!  And to know that so many people out there are pulling for us and praying for our little family is quite amazing…THANK YOU!!!!!

And now on with the show…or blog post…or whatever…

Now that several of the shows have aired, we are allowed to post pictures of the days we were filming.  It is sooooo hard not to tweet or share stuff with y’all when we are filming, but it would be a big no-no if we did so!  We haven’t been filming for a bit now which has actually been a little weird.  We have gotten used to having the crew around and really consider them an extension of our family (not because they are around that much, but because they are great people to be around!!).  But even though we aren’t filming, the craziness around our house continues.  Eliot is in full swing of 1st grade and of course loving every minute of it, The Fab Five are all growing like weeds on steroids and surprising us each and every day with their antics, and Casey and I are still enjoying the ride!!  I have a heckuva story to tell about Casey’s birthday celebration (she told me I must brag!), but that will have to wait until next time.  For now, here are some pictures of our Summer of Fun!! (This is the first of a few blog entries that will be mostly pictures – I can’t fit them all into one post.)

P.S.  Check us out on Facebook for more pictures of the day’s events!

P.S.S.  Since I know you’ll be asking…the Baylor outfits were purchased at Spirit in Waco and the hair bows came from www.birdieandpeanut.com.   :)

With these beauties at our side, Jack and I are two lucky dudes!!

Sooooo nervous!

Daddy’s little Baylor Bear :)

The Jones and Krueger Clans made the trip from Denton for the day!

Family picture day was a STRUGGLE!!  Heat, humidity, and cranky babies!!

Amy’s Ice Cream – their first time to have the cream…mmmmm’ good!!

Deep Eddy’s – do you think she was ready??

Our little cowgirl got to go horseback riding for the first time – thanks, Ann Marie!

Welcome home from China, Daddy…soooo good to be back!

And the first stop when we got back?  Where else, but Rudy’s BBQ?  Britton is a fan of the SAUSE!! :)

Five at a Time…Priceless!!!!

3 Comments 25 February 2009

We got a very cool surprise today in the NICU today as Casey was holding Britton and I was holding Jack. I’m not even sure what started it, but one minute we’re just sitting there chatting with the nurses and the next thing you know, we’ve got nurses bringing us the other three babies for a quick photo op!! It was really cool to have them all side by side and the pictures we got are absolutely PRICELESS!!!! The babies are in birth order in the picture from left to right – Brooklyn, Britton, Jack, Lila, and Ryan.
To be honest, I got a little nervous doing this because it meant that Brooklyn, Lila, and Ryan were disconnected from all of their monitors to make this happen, but we were surrounded by nurses and we only got to do this for a few quick minutes. Don’t let my nerves fool you however, the babies all continue to do very, very well. They each still have their own little issues that they need to overcome before they are allowed to come home. Brooklyn needs to get better at eating, Britton needs to grow, Jack needs to stop having heart rate drops, Lila had a pretty big setback today, and Ryan just needs to eat, eat, eat!
Lila’s setback was a really scary episode that quickly reminds us how important it is for the babies to be so closely monitored. For some reason she had a major heart rate drop coupled with a prolonged episode of very low oxygen saturation that required her nurse to artificially breathe for her for about four minutes. She never completely stopped breathing, but her oxygen saturation was too low to allow her to work through the problem on her own. This was out of character for her, but apparently isn’t an uncommon event for preemies to experience. She’s ok, but this little episode means that she will be in the NICU for a minimum of seven more days, probably longer.
One other quick note – Jack had his circumcision performed this evening. Casey’s ob/gyn, Dr. Stephanie Reich performed the operation and reported that all went well and Jack did not make a peep. Atta boy, Jack!
It is possible that one or two of the babies will be coming home in the next 7-10 days, but it’s really unclear at the moment. They are all doing very well, but these lingering issues with eating and breathing have to go away entirely and stay away for a good seven days or so before they can think about sending them home with us. Please continue to pray for their growth and maturity with eating and breathing!!!
God Bless,
Ethan
P.S. Eliot is really into calendars and loves keeping track of the passing days on the calendar in her room. She gives us daily updates of lunar events (“Daddy, it’s a full moon tonight!”), holidays, and other notes listed on the calendar. I only mention this because she just ran out of her room to inform us some important news – tomorrow is Flag Day in Mexico…very exciting stuff!!

New Slide Show on JonesLife.net

Comments Off 16 February 2009

Check out the new slide show that Tracey Taylor, owner of Taylor Made Portrait Studio, did for us after a visit to the NICU. The link is on the front page of the website directly beneath the small slideshow that is posted there. We were actually a little reluctant to have Tracey come up to photograph the babies as we didn’t think she would get much given the environment of the NICU. Boy, were we ever wrong!! She did an amazing job of capturing the essence of our experience with our babies, a talent Tracey has shown all along as she has chronicled this adventure!

Also, we were interviewed today by KVUE who wanted to update Austin on the baby’s one month birthday. They ran the report on the six o’clock news. We’ll have the link up on the website in the next couple of days.

God Bless,
Ethan

Here you go! From left to right and top to bottom is Baby D then Baby E. Below them is Baby B then Jack William. Finally, Baby A is at the bottom. Tomorrow, Casey will get to see the babies for the first time all together and we hope to get the names assigned at that time. All of the babies are doing very well and are spending most of their time tonight sleeping. Three of the babies need a little bit of extra help breathing (that’s what the blue tubes are), but not to worry, they are doing great! There will be more photos uploaded to the website soon on the media page.
Good Night and God Bless!
