3 Months Old!



Addison..can you see her behind her paci?

Wow! Can you believe they are three months already! Right now we are working on sleeping through the night. It's been over three months and mommy could really use a full night. Starting yesterday I put the the three on a strict schedule and it did decrease the amount of activity last night. Lets hope it sticks! So do you wonder what the babies do all day? Below is the list so far...of course we are all learning so it may change again and again.

7:45 AM Diaper and meds

8:00AM Bottle

8:30AM Nap

9:30 Am Free time

10:30AM Clothes and Diapers

11:00AM Bottle

Of course their is always another dirty diaper thrown into the mix or a fussy one who just wont nap, or someone spits all over their clothes and needs changed, or spits all over mommy and I need to change...But we are going to stick to the schedule as closely as possible.

Doctors visit (11 weeks)

We have good news and bad news. Lets start with the bad. The Pedi thinks Tyler has an inguinal hernia. This is common in preemies and normally requires surgery. We are waiting for an appoinment with the specialist. He also has a belly button hernia but this should heal on it's own.

The good news is the babies are not sick. They have had the runs now for two weeks and doctor said it's because it's time to back off on their vitamins. So yay we get to get rid of the smelly poly visol. We have really gone through the diapers in the past two weeks! I hope it clears up in the next couple of days.

They each got four shots today including their synagist. Tyler weighed 8lbs 8oz, Brock weighed 8lbs 6oz, and little miss Addison was 7lbs 6oz. I was hoping they were a little more but I guess the runs did not help. The doctor was very pleased with them.

Oh also I get to get a handi cap sticker. I was telling her how hard it would be to get the triplet stroller between cars and that I couldnt leave it behind the vehicle with babies in it while I put one up and she said that I qualified for it. I was really worried about this if I were to ever go anywhere with them on my own. It's hard enough just to fit between the vehicles with two car seats in my hands.

Wow I have a lot to say....We also are to go get the babies checked in a few weeks to see if they can come off their monitors. I have mixed feelings about this. I have come to learn to deal with them and they give me piece of mind. On the other hand it would be easier to get around. They are hard to tug around to doctor visits and are loud when they go off.

My little spitters. The babies have reflux and they spit after every meal. Well it's been getting pretty bad. Sometimes they lose half their bottles. It's gotten to the point where I just leave their bibs on them all day because they soak their outfits. Well come to find out they needed a dose increase on their reglan. I'm really looking forward to seeing a change in this department.

What's going on with Oaklen? He's doing great. He has a four day weekend and gets to go to the clay center with the neighbor on Saturday. He also is getting ready to take on more responsability around the house. He is not excited about this. He is going to learn to clean his own bathroom and start helping with the dishes. I would teach him to his laundry but he's still a little on the short side and can not reach the dials. He's doing awesome in school and we are thinking about putting him in a sport. He is wanting to do karate so we are checking into it. I don't think he is wanting to go back to baseball this year. He's just not a competitive kid. I'm thinking the karate is going to work great for him.

Brock in his new floor mat. Thanks Grandma and Grandpa!

Brock and Tyler snuggle aunt Donna. We love you aunt Donna!

Daddy is not happy to have the babies on the front porch. He is so over protective. Can you believe we had 70 degree weather in January!

I'm not sure how my wiggle worms ended up in this position but Addison is using Tyler as a foot rest while they both sleep. Look how red her hair is!

Addison gets cozy with Oaklen. Oaklen loves to pick them up and hold them.

We had to loosen the belt on Tylers favorite spot. Thanks for the swing Juanita!

The flu found us....




Daddy with Addison

I'm not sure how it found us but it did. It so far has been just a mild case. Brock seems to have it the worst and he is just running a low fever and diahrea. No one else has it just the babies. The only thing I can think is someone either brought it into the house or they got it while at the eye doctor. Either way I hope it clears up soon!
