One Year Ago

What a difference one year makes. Happy Birthday to you, Little Man, Squeaky and Blondie!

At the last Mothers of Multiples meeting, I was given a copy of Preemie Magazine. If you have a preemie, had a preemie, or are expecting preemies, check it out. If you are the parent of a preemie, you can get a free one year subscription.

First Birthday Party

Click for more photosWe had the birthday party on Saturday afternoon at church. Blondie didn't want much to do with the birthday cake, but Little Man, and especially Squeaky, enjoyed playing with theirs. Little Man had no interest in wearing a birthday hat, but the girls didn't seem to mind. It's so funny to see their different personalities. We've added some photos to look at.

Birthday Party

On Saturday, we had the one year birthday party for the kids. We'll try to have some photos posted soon.

Back Update

Well, it's official. An MRI shows that I have 2 herniated discs. No wonder I've been having back pain. I go to a specialist next week to see what can be done. I just pray this will respond well to treatment.

Here One Day, Gone The Next

Recently we were listening to a radio show about children. The host was talking about how the first three years of their lives seem to take forever to go by. Once they hit around three years of age, the time flies and suddenly they are eighteen and probably headed off to college. It made me start to think about something that will happen to us. All three were here one day and one day they'll all possibly be headed off to college. What a change that will be. Okay, now I'm sad.

New Seats

We've decided to go with car seats that will grow with the kids from now until they age out of them. They are foward-facing seats that convert to booster seats when needed. We hope they last for 7 years. Little Man and Squeaky will be ready to go into their new seats soon. Blondie still has to gain some more weight before she'll be ready.

If I Had A Dollar For Every Time ...

We took the kids to the doctor today and then shopping for the next size car seats they'll be going to after their first birthday. I don't know how many people stopped us and said "I bet your days are really busy". What are you supposed to say to that? Something like, " No, they tend to take care of themselves and I have it easy".

A Great Read

Thanks to the Curletto family for posting a link to this story on multiples. Do you have multiples? Expecting multiples? Do you want a true glimpse into the world of multiples? It's a must-read.

Back Problems

Having back problems is bad enough. Having them with triplets is horrible. There seems to few opportunities to take it easy and rest my back. I'm just thankful the father and friends have been here to help me out.

Getting Out

This past Saturday, the father and I were actually able to get out on a date. (Thanks P, A and H for watching the kids.) If my memory is correct, this is only the second time in almost one year that we've been able to get out to eat and go to a movie. It's easy for time to pass quickly. Before you know it, it's been months since you've had a break and you just don't realize how stressed you are from being with the kids all the time. It can't be healthy for us or them. It was nice to get away and remember that we're more than just a mother and father.

You know, there are still days when I get up and still can't believe I have triplets.

Shopping For Multiples

When you're shopping for multiples, it's important to get the best deal you can because you're buying for 2, 3 or more. It doesn't matter what you're shopping for - clothes, diapers, toys or anything else. We take advantage of the children clothing sales we know about. We've also been blessed with family and friends that have given us clothing, toys and more. (Thank you!!!) We were reading the Curletto family blog and they mentioned getting an MP3 player for their toddlers from this website. Do you know of other places online that have great deals in items for children?

This Must Be A Game

Last night, the girls were as wild and unruly as they could be and Little Man was the best kid in the world. They must be playing some sort of "I won't eat tonight if you won't eat tomorrow night" game with us.

Why Won't You Eat???

Little Man has decided that he just doesn't care for solid foods anymore. We have no idea why. He was fine until he caught a cold last week. He's over that now, but he still just doesn't care for solids. He fusses when when try to feed him. It's very confusing and frustrating. Any ideas from the parents out there?

Late Spring/Early Summer Colds

Those nasty colds have returned. It's no fun when all 3 are sick.

How Exciting

Last night at dinner, I was holding Squeaky. She looked at the father, waved her hand and said "Hey, Dada". It's the first time any of them have said that together. All 3 say "Mama", Dada" and "Hey", but that's the first time they've put the two together. And without any prompting or coaching from us. We were so excited.
