Climbing....

We climb everywhere! My little monkeys are into everything. I can handle it, really I can. :0)

When they first started climbing on the couch I thought, 'OMG, I am going to have a heart attach' but that is nothing now. They climb on the kitchen chairs, on the coffee table, on the end tables, they even try to climb on my bed. I know this is what they do and its great that they are, but now Brody has climbed out of his crib! I don't know what to do now. I do not want to spend the money on a crib tent. I know that is what I need to do, but he will only use it for a couple of months, right? So what did my mom do before crib tents were invented? Did she just let me fall?

So during the day they are pretty much free to roam the house because I hate putting them in a "cage". I have pretty much given the house to the babies. I have childproofed the living room, dining room, and the extra bedroom. I just close the doors to the other rooms and let them go. I have forgotten to close the bathroom door once or twice and always find Brody in the toilet so I have gotten a lot better about closing doors behind me. I made the extra bedroom into a play room, but if I gate them in there then they hate it and all they do is scream so I don't use it like I intended on using it. I have a play yard, but its only been set up like its suppose to be used a couple of times. My point is that I am sucker..... these babies have me wrapped around their tiny little fingers. You will probably see me on super nanny in the future, lol :)

Its been a long time.

I have been having a heck of a time with my computer lately, and my motivation. Sorry it has been so long since an update.

Everyone is doing great. I found out that we aren't getting the RSV (synagis) shots this year. It is kinda scary, but its good that the trio is too healthy to qualify for the shots. I am not looking forward to being stuck in the house again, but that was going to happen with or without the shots. We have all stayed healthy and haven't had any major issues.

We took Brody to a follow up appointment with the neurosurgeon and the Dr said that he isn't concerned about having to place a shunt. We are going to do a MRI at 18 months old just to make sure. Then the only question will be is if we want to have the reservoir removed. Brody is just an amazing little man! When he was born and our "wimpy white boy" we had so many scares, and now look at him.... the FIRST one to walk. That's right our wimpy little white boy is walking all over the place. Savannah and Cheyenne are starting to walk now, but Brody was first. I don't think any of us would have put money on that.

It is so much fun watching them grow and learn. I never could have imagined how amazing it really is. They days seem to be much easier now than they have been. A lot of triplet moms would tell you that it doesn't get easier it just gets different, but in my opinion it is way easier. For me, I can deal with chasing them all over the place and redirecting them when they start fighting, but I had a really had time with all the crying and not knowing how to make them feel better. Don't get me wrong we still have a lot of crying, but it is way down from what it use to be. The hardest thing for me is not being able to cuddle with all three of them when they need me to. When they wake up from their nap they want mommy time so bad, all of them! I do the best I can, but there are days the only thing I can do is load them up in the car and let the drive sooth them. It breaks my heart :( Another thing that is really hard for me is the feeling that I am giving one more attention than the other two. I have really been feeling that way with Savannah. She has always been pretty content on her own and now I think she just expects it.

Most days are great, some are bad, and some days I want to run away, but I am having the time of my life.
