Well today was day three of having only one nap during the day. They have their brief sleepy/ fuss moments here and there but it's getting better. I am a little jealous because I keep hearing all these moms who say there kid is sleeping 3 hours during this nap. So far we are at one hour and thirty mins to one hour and forty five mins.

Well the last month or so has been crazy. The kids naps have been horrible! They would fight going down (playing and fussing for 10-20mins) and only stay down 30-45 mins. We moved their snack time around so they ate right before their naps (@9:30am & 2pm) which helped briefly but then, once again, we were back to napping horribly.

Hope everyone had a great and loving Christmas! We had a wonderful one. The Grandparents (Michael's parents)  came over Christmas eve. We had a chili dinner and let the kids have some presents. Then Christmas day we went to their house, opened the rest, and had a wonderful ham dinner. It was really good to have all of us there together for the kids first Christmas.

I did not write this but have seen it posted a couple of times on forum boards and thought my readers would get a kick out of it. It wasn't that long ago when ours weren't STTN and I remember the pain quite vividly....lol

If you have started to have nap issues, this may help you, or at least give you some ideas.... The kids take two naps, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. They go to bed about 7-7:30pm and wake up 6-6:30am. First nap was about 9am and the second was about 1:30pm. They eat three solid meals a day and two snacks plus sippies. Well our naps started going very badly.

The triplets are almost a year old now. The year has flown by so fast, with ups and downs... The first few months of sleep deprivation, trying to figure out how to juggle three at once, and learning that someone is going to cry. That last one was the hardest for me, and even today it still weighs on me.

As you all know, Criton has been walking for a little while now. He has gotten really good and is even running a little. Caitlin is getting bolder and walking between things and people more now (letting go). I still think she has a little fear of falling. Haley on the other hand is a riot. She will just stand up in the middle of the floor and start taking steps.

Here are a few quick recipes... Chicken pot pie (my Mother In Law gave me this one and the kids love it) 2 can of mixed vegetables,  2-3 chicken breasts, 1-2 cans of cream of chicken soup, pie shell (I used the Pillsbury pre-made in a box).

We are on day three of no bottles (except the bedtime bottle). First day wasn't too bad. Yesterday evening they got cranky but they also had really bad naps. We ate breakfast, drove to grandma's and they caught a quick 20 min nap in the car. Then we headed home after lunch, they napped about 20mins on the way home and then another 30mins in their room.
