Justin and I have truly been blessed so much! We were blessed with quadruplets but 2 have became our guardian angels! We know our baby boys, Addison and Levi are watching down, helping God take care of us and Wesley and Cooper. This is the start of our journey so I have decided to make this blog for updates of all of the emotions and excitement that will happen along the way! Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers! Thanks to everyone for all of the congrats.! We are so excited and are thankful to have great family, friends and community that are wanting to help us! No one will ever understand how much it means to us! If it's your first time visiting our blog, start at the bottom and work your way up, or on the right hand side you can look by date.

How are we going to do this?

Everything is still so overwhelming! All of our family and friends are still in shock but they are starting to help us get things figured out. Casey, Justin's sister wrote Oprah and my Casey wrote Ellen, Huggie's and Pamper's to see if we can get some help with the quads! Our friend Laura started a Facebook page for us called "Masencup Quadruplets". It is going to be used for us to keep updates with the babies and on any events that our friends may be planning to help us raise some money. She also started us a bank account at Allegacy where our friends and community can make donations. As the week goes on the news continues to roll around town and people are still calling asking if it is true or a rumor! Everyone is saying they are going to help us in any way, which we are very thankful for. On Wednesday I had a total melt down to Justin. My hormones are going crazy so of course it was bound to happen sometime! My major concern was "how are we going to make house payments, and we have to get rid of this cat!!". By friday someone had called and was willing to take Tiger off of our hands. It's sad that we have to get rid of him, but the cat hair is out of control and because he stays in the room where the babies will be we have to.

He's so sweet and pretty! We are going to miss him!

On Saturday, January 22nd Mom, Casey and I head to Raleigh. Abbey, my cousin had told us about a HUGE consignment sale called the Kids Exchange. It was free for the community and you could get some great deals on all sorts of baby, toddler and children items. It was crazy how much stuff they had at this sale but we took everything in, by taking our time to see what exactly we would need for the babies in their first months. We got some great deals on boppies, and clothes for each gender even though we aren't sure what they are yet. We could have got so much more, but now we know what exactly the Kids Exchange is and will totally be going back! After that we head back to Winston, next stop babies'r'us. We took our time looking through everything we would need and also registering for some 'had to have' items. Finally we found our stroller solution! We found a great double stroller for after they are old enough to sit up on their own, but the good part was we could fold it down to where we could lock in 2 carries on the strollers. So of course we are going to need 2 of those along with 4 carriers. They had bouncy seats and swings on sale so mom was gracious enough to buy me and justin 2 of each. While looking around we ran into Audrey and Jane, 2 of our great friends. They gave us some great tips on what were the best items to get, and they really helped us out a lot. Thank God for friends that have already had babies! While we were shopping Justin called with some wonderful news!! Someone was willing to help us with some house payments! It's a blessing from God and we are so thankful! The 2 major concerns of my meltdown are taken care of, yayyy!


  1. A good friend of mine is in this group- they are amazing! She has twins, but there are tons of resources! http://www.charlottemultiples.com/

  2. Congrats on your babies, they are truly a miracle. But shame on you for getting rid of your cat. If you never planned on keeping him after having children, then you really should not have gotten him in the first place. Animals are lifetime commitment.

  3. Congrats on your babies.

    We actually hasd to get rid of our cat of 5 years on Feb 10th. (LONG story) It was sad, but I am relieved too.

    CBun. Don't pass judgement on someone who doesn't make the same choices you do. There should be no condeming her for her chioces. Thats just wrong. Please try to not throw guilt on to people. You may disagree, but it's best to keep it to yourself.

  4. Congratulations on your babies! I just saw this post and was wondering if you had considered looking into using cloth diapers, at least part time? It is very economical, even more so if you use cloth/reusable wipes. I highly suggest you look around and see just how cute and easy cloth diapers are these days. I had no idea they made ones so similar to disposables. Please feel free to contact me if you would like any suggestions on where to start looking for cloth information.

    God Bless,
