A Family Affair

January 28th, 2009

Tomorrow the babies are going to see our chiropractor for the second time. All five of us are getting adjusted. It's a family affair! Here are a few pics of their first adjustment. We noticed a great improvement in the babies' demeanor. They seemed happier and slept better. We are very thankful to Dr. Jeremy Shaft for working with the babies.

This and That

January 28, 2009

Hello All!

I thought I better get a post in before we leave for Florida. That's right! We are packing up the triplets, hopping on a plane and heading to Florida.

New things are happening every day at our house. All three of the babies are doing a great job sitting up and Aidan is seriously thinking about crawling. He gets up on all four and rocks. That boy is ready to go.

The babies are sleeping well at night, but napping....forget about it. I am so jealous of all of the mothers out there that get to enjoy a couple of two hour naps during the day. We are lucky to get a random thirty minutes here and there. But as long as they continue to sleep through the night; I'll take it.

The babies really enjoy each other's company. One of my favorite things to do is sit them in a circle and put a bunch of toys in the middle and just watch them. It is so much fun! Aidan loves to take toys away from whomever is sitting near him. Brooklyn is becoming irritated with this and I kept help but laugh. Calahan (also known as "Happy Feet")loves to read. They all like to screech and talk to each other. It is the sweetest thing and I try hard to take in every moment so I can remember these times when they are older.

We can't believe the babies are almost 10 months old. The time is flying by and I am not ready for them to grow up yet.

Enjoy the pictures!

Merry (late) Christmas, Happy New Year...

January 7, 2009

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, etc...

I haven't updated the blog in quite awhile and I apologize. My friend Jen called me today to make sure everything was o.k. so I am sure there are others that are wondering the same. I have no excuse for my absence other than the holidays, 3 BABIES, facebook (I'm addicted), 3 BABIES and a lousy cold.

Our holidays were wonderful and we hope yours were the same. The babies did well with their first visit to see the big guy in the red suit. The triplets also did a great job with traveling to their Nana and Papa's house for Christmas eve and traveling to their Grandma and Grandpa's house for Christmas day. They enjoyed spending time with all of their relatives: cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents.

Things have been rather uneventful and that is the way we would like to keep it. We have a busy week of doctor visits next week for synagis shots, 9 month check up and audiology appointment (for Cal). We will also be visiting our good NICU buddy, Adelyn, who will be having surgery at U of M. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

As for the individual babies, here are a few highlights:

Aidan rung in the new year with a new tooth! He was up at night for a week and a half before that little bugger finally popped through. How many teeth are there? Times three babies? OH BOY! Aidan is sitting up on his own and he loves to grab his brother's bib to pull him closer. Aidan loves to grab new toys and investigate/chew on them. He loves to splash around in the bath tub.

Brooklyn lets us know what she wants and when she wants it. She isn't a big fan of the whole napping during the day thing and she prefers a later bedtime than her brothers. She loves to be on her tiptoes and thinks her brothers are pretty fun to watch. Her favorite time of the day is when her Daddy comes home from work. She beams when she hears his voice and the smile she gives him when she sees him lights up the whole room She is also sitting up and loves bath time.

Calahan is the smiliest baby ever. He is very sensitive to his sister's loud screams and to new faces. He is content most of the time and an absolute joy to be around. Calahan is doing a lot of talking these days. He loves to splash around in the bath and can get the whole kitchen wet in minutes. Calahan loves to watch The Monkey Doos! In December I took Cal to the doctor and he had some x-rays done of his lungs. Everything looks fine. We are taking him to a pulminologist just to be sure.

All three of the babies are handling their cereal and vegetables very well (perhaps a little bit TOO well). The babies have eaten rice cereal, oatmeal, peas, green beans and sweet potatoes so far and they love it all.

Paul and I have never been so full on love. Aidan, Brooklyn and Calahan light up our worlds every day. God sure did know what he was doing when he blessed us with these three miracles and we are eternally grateful that he chose us to be their parents.

Again, I apologize for my lack of postings and I can't make any promises that I will do better. But I can promise you that we think of all of the friends and family that have been so helpful to us and we wish you a fabulous 2009!
