Well I actually have a few free moments today so I figured I’d post and put a few new pictures up on the site. The triplets are doing very well, but the babies, Mason, Grandma, & Dave all had little colds but luckily I stayed healthy!! The babies really did well though and got over the sniffles pretty quickly. They are tough little cookies. The big event this week is we have started feeding the babies some rice cereal when we get the time. Surprisingly they have done quite well with it. Little Tanner is definitely the best eater and takes the cereal off the spoon like a champ, Jasmine does okay with it if she’s in the mood, and Ally really isn’t interested yet J We are hoping a little bit of cereal will help fill their bellies up enough to help them sleep a little better at night. They are definitely going through a growth spurt, they have been very hungry during the day and during the night they haven’t been sleeping as well as they have been. They eat around 9:30 or 10PM and usually sleep till 5, but the past few nights they have been squawking at night and not wanting to stay settled all night. So today I had Melissa try an experiment and feed them every 3 to 3 ½ hours to see if that makes a difference. They have been eating every 4 hours. So we will see if that makes a difference tonight – I just think they are hungrier now that they are getting bigger and since we can’t really feed them a lot of solid foods yet we need to get more milk in them. Grandma went back to Wisconsin on Sunday so we need some good sleepers at night to keep our sanity.

This weekend we had some fun. Dave & I took Mason and Lydia (Melissa’s daughter) to the CIRCUS . Mason LOVED it - the elephants were definitely his favorite. Mason has been doing so well lately. He is definitely matured a bit now that he has hit age 3. He can literally talk a mile a minute and can say some pretty funny things. He is my little buddy – that is for sure. We also went to a friends house on sunday for her birthday. It was lots of fun and we took all the kiddos. They have 7 month twins so we had 5 babies in the house - and they were actually all very well behaved not any screaming moments :-)

The pictures below are pics of the kiddos in their new bumbo seats and one of Mason & his birthday cake. They really like them and so does Mason LOL he tries them out all the time.

Mason turned 3 and Christmas is over

Well I think this post is a little overdue!! I have been very bad at keeping up at blogging lately. I am just way too busy!! These little babies take up lots of my time and working full time doesn't help out :-) But it's all good though we are having lots of fun with our little bundles of joy!! They are now all smiling and cooing and each day when I get home from work they are so happy to see me. It's very sweet!!

They all have had little colds the past few days though so that's been a bit of a bummer adn they ahve been sleeping in their bouncy chairs in their cribs the past few nights because then they don't get aren't so congested like when they lie on their backs.

Mason has a GREAT 3rd birthday!! We had a nice party at the house and he really enjoyed himself!! He was so cute opening up all his presents and really liked everything he got. The menu was pizza and other appetizers, but pizza was mason's request so of course I couldn't say no! The next day then we went to Disney for the day with Pam, Jordan & Emily Tanck and had an absolute blast! Mason loved every minute of it and fell asleep while I was carrying him to the monorail station around 7PM. He barely woke up to when I took him potty and put him to bed when we got home.

Well the babies are waking up and getting ready to eat so I better get going. I don't have pictures today - but promise I will try to take some later and post them. They are just getting too cute. Jasmine is getting very very chubby too - it's adorable!! she's got michelin man rolls!!

Hope everyone has had a great start to the new year.
