These were on the Curletto family website. The list is for twins, not triplets, but they are funny (and true).

Official 6 Month Photos

Little Man

The triplets are almost 7 months and here we are posting 6 month photos. Oh well, better late than never. Because these photos were made at a studio, they are copyrighted. That's why we're posting them with the copyright symbol on the photos. Even with it in there, you can see what they look like.

Eating For Us, But Not Others

All 3 are starting to show some favoritism when it comes to eating. They usually do really well when taking a bottle from the father and I, but they won't always eat when someone else is feeding them. We usually have to take them to get them to eat. We're not sure if this just a temporary phase or exactly what's causing this preferential eating.

Posting Video Clips

Does anyone know of, or use, a website that allows free postings of video clips? We would love to get some out there for people to view.

Growing Up

When we realized Little Man had teeth this morning, it suddenly made me realize that the kids are growing up. Yes, they're only (almost) 7 months old. Yes, they still have lots of growing to do. I guess this was just the first time it really hit me that they are getting older. No longer are we greeted by those beautiful, toothless baby smiles. We're now seeing some teeth in there too.

No Dentures Required

Little Man finally has teeth coming through the gum. We noticed that the lower front teeth were poking through this morning.

Baby Dedication Sunday

Tomorrow is Baby Dedication Sunday at church. All the babies born within the last year are recognized. It should be fun. The big challenge for us will be getting there on time. We have to be there 15 minutes before church starts. We usually aren't able to get there on time now. We'll get an early start and hope things go smoothly.

Father Friday - A Fake Ad

We ran across this fake ad at We promise you - we're not bad parents. We just thought this was too funny to not post.

Invasion of the Snotty Noses

We've been trying to nurse all 3 back to health over the past 3 days. Everyone has a cold and a runny nose.

New Weights

We went back to the doctor yesterday for another RSV injection and a flu injection. They did some quick weights to get the correct doses. Based on the weights yesterday, we have a new winner in the weight category.

The weights yesterday were -
Little Man - 15 lbs 7 oz
Squeaky - 15 lbs 11oz
Blondie - 12lbs 7 oz

Been Thinking About Cleaning

I was reading Chelle's post on cleaning and I got to thinking about cleaning our house. We used to do a minor cleaning one week and the next week, we would clean the house really good. Needless to say, this stopped about, um..., 6 months ago. My father-in-law came over one day during the New Years holiday and helped with the kids so we could clean the house. That's only the second time in 6 months the house has had a good cleaning. We miss the chances to clean everything really well. We just seem to keep the clutter organized now. And yes, we know, it will probably only get worse once they start crawling and walking.

Teething Pain

Little Man seems to be bearing the brunt of the teething pain. Squeaky and Blondie started showing teeth without any signs of discomfort. Little Man seems to be in agony most of the time. We've tried teething rings, cold wet washcloths, Orajel and Tylenol. Nothing seems to last for very long. Any other suggestions?

A Family Photo

Today we have an official photo made at church for the upcoming baby dedication/recognition service. Somehow we've let 6 months fly by with no "official" family photo. Let's hope this is a good one.

Father Friday - Words Of Wisdom

If you've never had multiples, you have no idea how hard or rewarding it is. We wouldn't trade it for anything. For every crying outburst, there are numerous moments where your kids look at you with all the love they can muster. For every sleepless night, there are those peaceful moments when they fall asleep in your arms. When you're in the midst of day-to-day parenting, it's easy to get caught up in the bad moments and look over the happy moments. You have to remember to enjoy every moment. I think it's best summed up in something my Daddy told me today - "One day you'll look back and laugh at all the stuff that happened. Just no time soon.".

Triplet Town

From the Inside Edition website, the story on Wednesday, January 4 - "Arriving three by three, 105 adorable triplets are born. But besides being triplets, whats truly amazing is that all 105 of them, from newborn to 18 year-old triplets, live in the same county and share the same zip code. INSIDE EDITION is there for the gathering of the triplets as they get ready for a group photo." Wow!!!

Eating - Then vs. Now

We were talking this morning about how eating habits of the kids have changed so much. When they came home from the hospital, they were eating about 25 ccs (slightly less than 1 ounce) of milk every 3 hours around the clock. Now they are eating around 210 ccs (7 ounces) 4 times during the day, in addition to rice cereal and some baby food (butternut squash, carrots, sweet potatoes). You can see in the photo the differences in milk. An original bottle we were using is on the left with 25 ccs marked at the arrow. The bottle we're using now is on the right with 210 ccs marked at the arrow. What a difference 6 months has made.
