So. It’s been a while since I last updated you all on life with 3 little ones. A long while.
Well, to tell you the truth it’s busy! Do forgive me. From birthdays, physicals, sleep deprivation, visiting friends and family, to just plain old lack of time, things have definitely been different in my house. I even celebrated my birthday this year (Sept. 28th)… As a new Mom. I couldn’t have asked for a better gift.
They grow like weeds and the days pass by faster than I can say. Funny, this time last year I was gearing up for our second fresh IVF cycle. We’d been successful in our first attempt at IVF, but sadly lost Kaleb in my second trimester. Who would’ve thought a year and a half later I’d be a Mom to triplet boys???
While I don’t have a lot of time to give you a long-drawn out post, I will leave you with a few tidbits. I’m sure though once the new nanny is on a more consistent schedule, I’ll have a bit more freedom during the day to get work done (my business has been neglected since early in my pregnancy) and even blog more!
4-month physical’s & immunizations is next Wednesday, so these stats are from this past week’s weight check. The photos are from the past week as well. These are their 4-month shots…
Eli (11lbs 7oz & 15W5D old)
I love to be close to Mommy. If I see anyone near her or she’s holding either of my brothers, I’ll pitch a fit until she picks me up.
I can smile wide and bright! Don’t tell Mommy, but I can even control it. I really like to smile when she’s not looking.
I found my hands, but I don’t like the taste of them.
I can hold my head up. Still a bit unsteady, but give me a few, I’m getting better!
I love bath time, especially the little massage my Mom gives me afterwards. Puts me right to sleep!
I can sleep 6-7 hour stretches! Yay for sleep…it helps me grow! Although, I’m sure Mommy & Daddy would prefer that to be at once. I can, but for some reason, I’m a night owl at times…..
Jo-Jo (13lbs & 15W5D old)
I Coo, talk, yell, blabber….all day long! It always makes my parent smile.
I Smile extremely big! Sometimes, I even smile at the things & people my parents can’t see…
I friggin’ love my Mamas & Papas seat. I think the toys are the most entertaining of it all.
I L.O.V.E my fingers! I can’t believe I didn’t find these sooner. They taste so yummy! Even better than my Wubba-Nub Soothie.
I am a nightowl too. Mom & Dad get annoyed by it, but I can’t help it. I think it’s because my Mom was a night owl when I was still in her belly….
I can stand on my feet with help. I also can hold my head up really well. I like to look around when I’m on my tummy.
I’m a fast eater. Very fast. Mom has to watch me, ’cause I like to guzzle my milk down without a burp. And when I do, my tummy ends up hurting for a while.
Zeke (12lbs 12oz & 15W5D old)
I’m cuddly. I have soft squishy cheeks my Mommy says. She loves to kiss my face. I like it sometimes…others not so much.
I’m not a night-owl like my big brothers, I just like to sleep so I can grow!
I still have a hard time controlling my head, but I’m getting better. I do really well when Mom or Dad hold me up.
Did I mention I’m cuddly?
I like giving lizard kisses. It grosses my Mommy out, but it makes her laugh and me smile.
My Laryngomalacia is getting better, but it’s not gone. I still wheeze alot and it worries my Mom. The doctors all say I’m good, so my parents really shouldn’t worry. After-all, I’m a fighter!
I coo and talk too! I even smile. But shhhh. I only do so when nobody’s looking.
When I’m mad, the world will know. I will cry until I get what it is I want. I really don’t have to work hard though, my screams are pretty ear-piercing.
I’m mesmerized by light. Anytime there’s light peering through, I like to watch it.
There you have it folks. My little vamps. Can’t believe they’re not the little teeny tiny dots they started out as. Amazing that they’ve gone from this:
It’s a bit difficult to keep 3 babies entertained & focused. LOL @ Eli’s tea-time pose….
Well, that about wraps it up. When I can muster up some more energy and time, I’ll post more photos and more updates. “Til then, much love!
What a great birthday present!
“Til next time…..
