First Set of Shots ...

The trips visited the pediatrician this morning for their first round of shots. While there, each child was weighed and measured. Here are the new numbers:

13lbs 9oz and 24 inches long

10lbs 10oz and 22 inches long

10lbs 6oz and 22 inches long

All babies are doing great ... just keeping their mom, dad, and sitters up at night! Mom and Dad are going up for Christmas. I'm going up on the 26th and staying through the 31st. Mom, Dad, and Erin are going to the Liberty Bowl on the 29th. I chose to stay and keep babies. I bought them some State outfits so they can be spirited at least for the day, anyways. New pictures will be posted after the New Year.

Poor Patrick, he just slept through the whole Christmas picture marathon. Are they not the most precious children ever???

Other favorite places ... car seats and boppies!

The triplets were off to the doctor's office with mom for her 6-week checkup. Jo Jo said they were the talk of the office. You think?! :)

One of our favorite places ... Our Bouncies!




My first visit to see the triplets ...

I thoroughly enjoyed my first extended visit to see the triplets. I drove to TN after the Egg Bowl and stayed until the next Thursday. The triplets are just adorable!! All three are beginning to stay up for a little while between "naps." They look around at things and just take in all the sites. Everyone asks which one is my favorite ... I love them all equally. Each one has their own unique qualities that I love. Micah is the chunky one who has multiple chins and an eagerness to eat! :) Patrick is more layed back and will stay up to look around more than the others. Kathleen, well what can I say about that precious little girl. She is petite and has adoring features. She can be pretty stinky at times but those are only temporary.

I think I did well with Ginger at night keeping the triplets. They are a lot of work and I really didn't realize how much it would be. After I got home, I heard crying in my mind for several days thinking I needed to check on a baby. Those sounds are gone now and it makes me sad. I miss them desperately.

Ginger looks outstanding! I hope I can look that good that soon after I have just one! :) She and Jo Jo both are wonderful with the kids ... They are awesome parents.

I hope you enjoy the new pictures! :)
