Allergy Update

After talking more with the allergist, we have some updated information on Squeaky. She has an appointment in September for a latex allergy patch test. We have to keep her off eggs and peanuts for one year and then she goes back for a challenge test. I'm not looking forward to either. Especially the challenges.

Thursday, July 19, 2007


We recently found out that Squeaky has some interesting allergies - egg whites, peanut and possibly latex. It all started at a dentist appointment. The day after the appointment, Squeaky's face was covered in a horrible rash. The rash was in the smae place where the dental hygenist had her gloves. Because of this, we talked to our pediatrician and made an appointment with an allergist.

While she was at the allergist for the possible latex allergy, they decided to test for other allergies. The ones that came back positive were egg whites and peanuts. We have to keep both of those from her for one year. We decided just to remove both from the home.

Caging The Animals

Initially we had some reservations about it, but we've finally fenced in the back yard. We've had some problems with Blondie because she's a runner. She dashed for the street two times and that's all it took. We were on the phone with the fence builders. It's nice now to know that we can give more freedom to the kids and not worry about them getting out of the fence.


As you can see below, we've added some photos. We had to replace our camera with a new one. The old one had been dropped so many times the battery cover was having a hard time staying closed. The one we purchased uses a new memory card. It stores lots of images. It seems that we always have 2 months of images on the card before we take it out of the camera. That's the reason the images are old once we get them added here.

Time Slips Away

Over one month since we posted anything. How has time slipped away that fast? You would think as the kids get older that we would have more time, but that doesn't seem to be the case. At the end of the day when we might have some time to update the blog, we usually spend our time cleaning up after the kids. You just can't imagine how fast three can make a mess.

A Vacation

Last week, the father took some time away from work and we took some day trips for a vacation. It's the first time in almost 2 years that we've had anything close to a vacation. We visited a zoo, local parks and the mountains. It was relaxing to do something different even if it was just day trips.

Angus and the Triplets

We can't recommend the videos here enough. They are great.

The Streaker

Last night after we put the kids to bed, things were okay for a while. There was the normal talking, but nothing unusual. Suddenly Squeaky started yelling for Daddy. He checked on the kids and called me to their room. Squeaky was standing in the middle of her bed with nothing on but her diaper. She had figured out how to remove her pajamas and had thrown everything from the crib. The other 2 were standing there watching and laughing

An All-Encompassing Update

Here is a huge update. Little Man and Squeaky are successfully climbing on everything. Blondie is doing her best. She's just too short to get up on anything.

We've been trying to get rid of pacifiers. We started last Friday night. We're trimming just over 1mm off every other night. Those are bath nights. They seem to sleep better then so they don't seem to notice the trimming as much.

Everyone loves getting outside and playing. We have a Little Tikes playset and they just crawl all over it.

Should We Stop Or Continue?

It's been so long since we added anything to the blog. Every day we forget to add anything new. Lots of days we're just too tired to bother with adding anything. We're at the point now we're wondering if we should continue the blog or just stop adding anything. Any thought?

Scaling New Heights

It didn't take long. Now Squeaky is able to pull herself onto the couch and chairs in the living room.

More Challenges (For Us)

It seems like it's almost happened overnight. Squeaky is now able to pull herself up into the kitchen chairs. She's almost able to get on the couch without any help also. It won't be long before the other 2 are doing the same.

It's time to get rid of them. We've let the kids have them long enough and we're working on a plan to get rid of them. For a long time, they've only had them at nap time and bed time. It's time for them to go away. Maybe it will be easy. Maybe not. Any suggestions?

More To Do In Less Time

Lately it seems like we have more to do and less time in which to do it. We're usually running all the time. It keeps getting harder and harder to find time to keep this site updated. We'll do our best, but I doubt we'll have something added every day.

Same Toys, Different Age

We have 2 different lots of toys that we rotate for the kids. We'll let them play with one lot while we clean the other lot. Some of the toys they're playing with now are ones they played with at an earlier age. It's interesting to see how they have developed mentally and how they play with the toys now versus at an earlier age.

The Kissing Bandit

Little Man has learned how to pucker his lips and kiss. He runs around and kisses everything now. Me, Daddy, his sisters, toys...

Catching Up

It's been a really long time since we added anything new. We've gone through a couple weeks of all 3 having ear infections and it just hasn't been fun. We head back to the doctor tomrrow to get their ears checked again to see if they are clear.

Thanks For Telling Us

This past Sunday we received a huge compliment about the kids. The Sunday School teachers told us that all 3 were so well behaved, listened to the lesson and were really good about sharing. I'm sure the sharing comes from being a multiple. They don't have a choice.

Little Helpers

What a great bunch of helpers the kids are becoming. We've been letting them help with small tasks they can handle. Things like picking up their toys, putting small clothes items in the dryer, helping carry dirty dishes and silverware from one parent to another after a meal as we load the dishwasher, etc. They seem to really enjoy it and we don't mind the extra help.

4D Images Of Multiples In The Womb

Here's an interesting article on how 4D ultrasound is revealing more about multiples in the womb.

A Long Time Of Illness

It seems like it's been a while since we've all been this sick. Little Man started off, followed by Blondie, me and then Squeaky and the father. Squeaky and the father are just about over their colds now. It's rough when everyone gets sick and you're trying to look after each other.

A Few Days Off

We're taking a few days off as we all recover from colds.

18 Month Appointment

Today is the 18 month appointment with the pediatrician. It's probably going to be a wild time. They're supposed to get more immunizations. What will make the visit more difficult is the fact that all are sick and haven't had much sleep for the past week.

I Can't Wait To See This

The National Geographic channel is doing on show on multiples in the womb.

Here's a short description of the show - "On January 14 at 8pm, National Geographic will return to the womb with In the Womb: Multiples. The special will use 4d imagery to and CGI effects to show how twins and other multiple birth siblings develop bonds while in utero, and how those bonds continue after they're born."

I can't wait to see this when it comes on.

Parental Lessons?

On New Years Day, a television station aired 24 hours of The Andy Griffith Show. We were able to watch some of the episodes. It was fun to watch how Andy dealt with the situations involving his son, Opie. We tried to glean some tips that might be helpful for us down the road with the kids. Who knows, some of the wisdom from a simpler time just might be appropriate for parents today.

Cousin Itt

Remember Cousin Itt from the Addams Family show? When Blondie starts talking gibberish fast, that's exactly who she sounds like. It's funny to listen to.

Vacation With No Illness

What a nice time we had with the father here on Christmas vacation. It's the first time he's taken vacation this year and hasn't gotten sick because one of the kids has been sick. Let's hope being well continues for a while.
