Sorry I haven't posted anything for a little bit. This week has been kinda crazy with a lot of changes going on. First I'll do a quick update on the children... They are all eating two meals (solids) now. Once in the morning and once in the evening. The evening one seems to be really helping with getting them to drop a feed at night, but we have only done it for a couple of days now so we will see what happens.

Criton is weighing in at 15lb 0.5 ounces. He is about as long as Caitlin but just very skinny. We think he just has a high metabolism since he eats just as much as the girls but is constantly moving.

Reflux is very common in premature babies, and since most multiples are premature, it is something parents of multiples struggle with. I too had to deal with this at varying degrees. Caitlin had really bad reflux almost from the beginning and the other two had mild reflux. We have found several things that have worked so well that Caitlin was taken off her medication and the reflux, at this point, has seemed to resolve in all of them.

I can not seem to convince Caitlin that 5am is not an acceptable wake up time. It doesn't matter what time she goes to bed, this week she has just been rearing to go at 5am. It's a little frustrating but then she flashes me the biggest smile and laughs, and there is just no way you can argue with that. She has sucked me in just like her daddy! What is going to happen when she gets older?

Haley has always been our quite laid back baby. I used to worry about her because with the other two being so fussy early on she didn't get near the attention I thought she should. I was worried she would be so far behind in movements, play, etc... Not any more! For the past three days she has been babbling non stop. It is the cutest thing ever.

Normally you would assume when your baby is 3 months old they would fit the 3-6 month size clothes. When they are six months they would fit 6-9 month size. That is what I thought. That is basically what I remember, maybe one size bigger then their age at times. Not these kids... They are almost 4 months old now and their clothing sizes are just insane.

Well once again everyone only woke up once to eat last night... Yay! Hopefully it goes the same tonight. Caitlin woke up at 6am but only wanted to snuggle then fell asleep in her swing in the playroom Criton woke up around 7am and Haley shortly after. I fed everyone around 7:30am (6 1/2 oz bottles). We played until about 9:30am and then tried to eat some rice and apple cereal.

Well we have been patiently waiting for the children to start sleeping through the night (STTN). Sometimes one will sleep all the way through, sometimes they will only wake up once during the night, but nothing consistent for us yet. I had toyed with the idea of pushing back their bedtime from 7pm to 8pm but they would fight me tooth and nail. They didn't seem tired enough though and it seemed like they were more interested in playing then sleeping.

Michael's parents hadn't seen the kids in quite awhile because they live about 3 1/2 hours away. So this past weekend we packed up the brood and headed south. It took about 6 hours to get everything together and packed in the car. It never used to take long to get ready and jet off, but now with the triplets it seems to take forever.

I thought it was about time to have a conversation about marriage. When I was pregnant we heard a lot of things, such as: couples with multiples have a higher divorce rate, on forums I heard people talking about splitting up, those who had already divorced, and those who were seriously considering it. It made no sense to me at all. I could not understand why having multiples would destroy a marriage.
