Just A Thought

All baby clothes should have only velcro. No buttons, snaps or zippers. I think trying to get snaps to match correctly the first time on a full length outfit has to be some type of intelligence test.

I Just...

I don't know why people like to do this. It's usually the parents that have one kid. They like to say something like "I just spent so many dollars on my kid for braces, camp, school, etc." You get the idea. After they finish that sentence, they usually say something like "Oh my. Wait until your kids get that age. You'll have to spend three times that amount." Thank you very much. I learned quickly how expensive it is with triplets. And just for your information, I've probably spent more money on diapers than you can even imagine.

Sesame Street

We remember watching Sesame Street when we were kids. We turned it on this past Saturday just to see what it's like now because we know we'll be watching it with the kids in a few years. It seems to have changed a little from what we remember. That's why we were happy to find this link to some classic postings on the internet. Have fun watching them and don't forget to share them with your kids.

Bouncing In Exersaucers

The kids sure do love jumping and bouncing in the exersaucers. It almost seems like they enjoy that more than the Johnny-Jumpups. I can't help but think of Whack-A-Mole every time I see them jumping up and down in the exersaucers. Of course, we don't whack them on the head when they jump up though.

Another Sick Sunday

It's a week after Easter and 3 out of the 5 of us are still sick. Squeaky and Blondie are still the worst with runny noses. I can't seem to stop coughing. It's sad because we want to go to church. No matter what the illness is, it still seems us to take 2 weeks to get rid of it.

Rollin' and Tumblin'

Little Man is getting more mobile, but he moves by rolling. When you put him on the floor, he rolls around and keeps looking at us to see if we're watching. Last night, he wouldn't be still in his crib at bedtime. He wanted to keep rolling around. He especially seemed to enjoy rolling on his belly and looking up at us. He keeps moving like a barrel rolling down a hill.

I Wish I Had The Camera Ready

For the past few mornings the kids have been reaching to each other from their highchairs during feeding times. They'll hold hands for a few seconds. It's the sweetest thing. I wish I could get a photo of it happening.

New Teeth For Little Man

Little Man's top front teeth are breaking through the gum.

Slowly Turning The Corner

Are we beginning to see the end of the colds? Little Man is starting to get better, but Squeaky and Blondie are still congested. It's really bad for Blondie because she likes to keep her pacifier in while she's sleeping and that's hard to do with a congested nose. We keep making trips into the room at night to replace her pacifier when she loses it. That's a lot of fun (yeah, right) when she has thrown it out of the crib and we have to scramble in the dark to find it on the floor. Last night we were wondering if someone made glow-in-the-dark pacifiers and if that would make it easier to find them. We don't know about finding them, but they are available. Is there anything that isn't made for kids?

Thanks A Bunch, Easter Bunny

Instead of the usual basket of chocolates, the Easter Bunny decided to bring a basket of sickness. When it started, we thought it was just Little Man exhibiting some teething symptoms (grumpy, runny nose), but instead it was a cold that has begun its march through our family.

Happy Easter!!!

It's a few days early, but here are a couple of photos. Happy Easter!!!

Should I Be Mad Or Feel Sorry for Them?

Here's a story of a couple in Missouri that said they were expecting sextuplets. The community overflowed with support for them. It was just a hoax though to get the free things.

From reading any of our posts, you know how much work it is with multiples. I can only imagine how much harder it would be for one person to handle. That's why I'm glad the father and I make such a good team. When one of us is tired, the other seems to have lots of energy. When one of us has had all they can stand for the day, it seems like the other has lots of patience. We couldn't make it without each other.

We Have A Celebrity Look-A-Like

See any similarities?

What Happened, Mr. Sandman?

For the past couple of nights, sleeping has not been what it used to be. Starting about 30 minutes after we put the kids down, and lasting for about 4 hours, either Blondie or Little Man wake up about every 30 minutes and start to cry. We usually go to them and replace a lost pacifier and this solves the problem, but why has it started? Possible teething pain? Changes in sleepwear due to warmer weather? We don't know why, but it would be nice if it would stop.

For Parents of Multiples

This quote was in an email from my "Mothers of Multiples" group a few months ago. Surely all parents of multiples can relate to it.

"I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish that He didn't trust me so much. " - Mother Teresa

"Ma Ma"

Blondie has added "ma ma" to the sounds she's making. So far, she's the most vocal of all three. Maybe that's because she's the smallest and she's trying to make her voice heard.

Squeaky's Doing It Now

This morning, as if turning on a light switch, Squeaky has started using "ah" sounds and words just like Little Man and Blondie.
