Yum Yum!

Makenna
Maysie
Jaeli
Grandma decided to feed us spaghetti! Boy were we messy! We took some much needed baths when we were done! It was everywhere!

Keeping Clothes On...

It was a bit quiet, so I got up to see what was going on, and this is what I found... two of them undressing. I wonder how they got the backs unzipped??? Makenna maybe, seeing as how she is the only one with hers still zipped!
Jaeli trying to get her leg out the rest of the way!
Maysie finishing the job Makenna started!
Makenna standing their all inocent, wanting to know if I would take hers off.

This is starting to get much harder. I think we might have to bring out the duct tape! We tought turning their sleepers around would stop um, but nope, they have now learned to unzip each other! Makenna started it, now Jaeli and Maysie are starting to get the idea! What will we do??? I was warned from a couple other triplet mothers, they said it was coming, I was just hoping it would not happen so soon! They love to be naked, I would let it happen more often if Maysie did not take her diaper off and if Makenna would keep her fingers out of hers. Hopefully by summer they are better about it. We will see! Then they can run around all day in diapers if they must!

Valentines Day!

Maysie
Makenna
Jaeli Jo
Jace


Well the girls spent Valentines day with Grandma B and Grandpa. Daddy and I just stayed home with Jace and watched a movie! It was nice and relaxing! I think the girls enjoyed themselves!

Updates and Weights

Makenna and her lovely hair after bathtime! I think its almost time for haircuts, but they have so little hair I don't think I want to do it quite yet. I think we will let it grow a little more, but man does it look bad on all three of them!
Maysie trying to buckle herself into the bouncer! Once we actually buckled her in, she did not think it was funny anymore once she figured out she could not get out!
Jaeli smiles as always! Such a happy child...that is when she is in a good mood, otherwise, watch out, temper here we come! (Must get that from Mommy!)

Heading up the stairs for naptime at Grandma B's house! We are getting so good, but of course Makenna fell down the other day. Thankfully she was okay and just slid down on her belly!

Not sure how much the girls are weighing at 20 months old but I am thinking Makenna is probably about 27 or 28 lbs and Maysie and Jaeli are probably around 23 and 24lbs. They sure are growing!

As for Jace, at 6 weeks old he is now 10lbs 9oz and 20 1/4".

Makenna has been picking her nose and making it bleed, so we have been going through a lot of clothes and changing sheets often. She has also stained her blanket. Might try to find the same one, I think I know where it was purchased. How do you stop her from doing it when you are not around? Other than that, she is her usual self. She likes to tease and steal toys from her sisters! She is still my hugger and kisser! I love her kisses and hugs! Once she does it to one person, she has to go around the whole room and give everyone else hugs and kisses too... unless she does not know you!

Jaeli is still my sweet lovey child! She loves to cuddle and always has a smile on her face. But man, when you piss her off, she sure knows how to show it. I hate it when her and her sister hit their heads on the floor. But I guess its normal for their age! One of many things I love about her is how scared she gets at times, like lifting her to the ceiling or when she sees an animal with horns or antlers. It is so cute, for some reason she sticks her hand down my shirt when she does get scared, not sure what that is about. She thinks its fun and laughs but then throws herself onto my shoulder and just lays there and pats my back.

Maysie is still my drama queen! She has been attached to me a lot lately, wont even go to her dad. I think she is teeting so she does not feel good. But man she cries so much, its all drama with this child! I do love it when she sits with me and lays on me! She likes to lay in the corner of the couch right next to me for some reason. But she has to have her blanket and paci too, sometimes her baby. She will lay there for 20 min, sometimes more! She is now starting to cry when I leave her to get her sisters up, so she may become my last child to get out of bed! She is always trying to be silly too, when she is in a good mood that is!

Jace is a good baby for the most part! Now that we are mostly on formula, he has been gaining a lot of weight and learning to eat every three hours instead of two! Sometimes he wants more sooner than later, but hopefully we can get into some kind of schedule soon. He sleeps about 5 - 6 hours a night. He usually sleeps pretty well if swaddled! I have not been pooped or pee'd on as much as I was during the first few weeks. He has been pooping better too. Must have been sick or something. The one time I will never forget is when Josh left me all alone my last night at the hospital. I just feed him and had to change his diaper afterwards. All of a sudden he started crying. I looked up and he had pee'd all over himself, right into his mouth. He started gagging and stopped breathing for a few seconds. I had no clue what to do. I rushed to the phone and called the nurse as I was trying to suck the pee out of his mouth. His bed and clothes were all wet. The nurse helped me change him again and change his bedding, then we put him down and he went to sleep. Having a boy has definatly been an experience!

Jace Baptizm




Jace and his cousin Josie were baptized a couple weeks ago. It went pretty well. He never made a sound! Josie on the other hand... she is a couple months older, so it was to be expected! Thank you to all our friends and family who came or gave gifts and celebrated this special day with us! We really appreciate it!

Flower Girls

Jaeli
Maysie
Makenna

Well the girls are going to be flower girls in my sister's wedding. I think we got a little taste of what is going to happen on the big day when we were trying on dresses. Maysie and Jaeli did great, but Makenna flipped out. She refused to put it on. Finally we put it on her by putting her feet in first. Hopefully she does not act up at the actual wedding. It is only 4 months away, but maybe we will get lucky and she will behave. I will just have to make sure they get a good nap that morning! The dresses were a little big, but hopefully they will grow a bit in the next few months. It was the smallest size they had.

Jace 1 month old


Well Jace is 1 month old! This last month went so fast between his birth and my gallbladder surgery. It is defiantly a different experience all around. Just having a boy has been a big change, you know with changing diapers and getting pee'd on all the time! He sure knows how to poop too, well that is when he actually does it. He has been having some problems and is always gassy. We switched formulas and have been giving him some gas relief drops, but they are not helping much. The doctor wants us to try some colic ease or apple juice, so we will see how that goes. If either of those don't help, then we have to go back and see her to figure something else out. I guess Josh too had problems when he was a baby. I don't remember the girls being like this at all, Maysie and Jaeli had some problems while eating, but that was it. He sucks down a bottle in 5 minutes. He is eating a lot too, more than he should. But the doctor said to let him eat all he wants so long as he is not throwing up. And he only spits up occasionally. We are up to 5 oz now, and we are feeding every 3 hours, day and night, sometimes every 2.5 hours. Occasionally at night he will go 4 or 5 hours. He is now 10 lbs! He gained so much in a couple weeks, just switching to formula. His doctor said for his weight he should be sleeping 6-8 hours straight but for his age, it is too soon for that. So we will see how the next couple weeks go. He also has baby acne really bad. Hopefully that goes away soon too!

As for the girls, they are doing really good. They are now okay with holding him. Before they would push him away. Now they cry when we take him away. They still poke at him, but are getting more gentle! They are going to be flower girls in my sisters wedding, so we get to try on dresses Saturday, should be interesting! I am sure they will look adorable!

As for our house, we still have not heard about closing, it keeps getting moved back. It seems like a repeat of when we sold our other home. I hope it happens soon! I am getting excited to start working on it and get moved in so we can get back into a schedule and training them again when it comes to behavior and listening. It will be a long couple months, but hopefully worth it in the end! I am so ready to have my own home again. My in laws have been great, and its really not that bad, but I sure do miss having a home of our own!

All Four Of My Beautiful Children!


Check out all the posts below to see what has been going on the last week or so!

This picture is not so great, but trying to get them to smile was not on my mind! I just wanted the baby to be safe!!! They did not know what to think, he was crying very loud! We will have to try once they get more used to him!

Drawing...

Makenna
Jaeli
Maysie
We attempted drawing a couple days ago. They did pretty good at first and then they started sticking them in their mouths! So it only last about 10 minutes! The pictures were beautiful though! We used the markers that only show up on special paper! We will try again later!

Out to eat...

Jaeli
Maysie
Makenna
There was a mirror on the ceiling, so we were waving at them! They did really good!

With Grandma B, she does not get to see him often since she watches the girls for me. Having to watch him too would be a bit much, at least right now!
With Daddy, like father like son!
