Kaylie and I loaded up the big van this morning and headed to Glen Rose to meet Jill. Her triplets turned 1 last week. They are so cute. Racheal had fun playing with the Power triplets. Thanks for lunch Jill! I am having problems with my computer. I will try to post pictures later.
The babies were great on their first 4 hour trip to Crockett. They had lots of visitors the entire weekend. Saturday was Natalie's 1st birthday (Shelley's cousins' daughter). We came came home Sunday & came back through Corsicana. We stopped at the hospital so Randall could show the babies off. Racheal stayed in Crockett. She has a busy week planned. She is going fishing, swimming, & went to the fire station today. I talked to her last night & she was too busy to talk to me.
The triplets had their last eye appoint yesterday with the specialist. He said he still did not see any signs of ROP (retinopathy) so we do not have to see him again. He did refer us to a pediatric opthamologist to check their eye muscles. Reese occasionally crosses her eyes. He said it would probably be good for all of them to be checked.
They are still sleeping all night usually to around 7:30 or 8:00. I have been by myself today & they have been really fussy. We think they are teething. The boys have been drooling A LOT for several days. This weekend we are making our first trip to Crockett with the triplets. It is my cousin's daughters 1st birthday. It should be interesting. I am sure it will look like we are moving in. We will come back home on Sunday & Racheal is going to stay until Friday. She is so excited about staying.
We also received letters Friday that Ryan was turned down for SSI so now we have to fill out the paperwork to appeal his case. We also received a letter that Rylie was turned down down for the second time. So now we have to hire a lawyer & his case goes to hearing.
The babies had a check up this morning & shots. Rylie weighs 12 lb 12 oz & is 22 3/4 inches, Ryan is also 12 lb 12 oz & is 22 1/4 inches & Reese is 10 lb 11 oz & is 21 1 /2 inches long. The babies are getting 2 tablespoons of cereal in their bottles at night. He said in couple of weeks we could try making it thicker & feeding them with a spoon. That should be interesting!

Hope everyone has had a great 4th! We have had a great day relaxing at home. I survived my first night by myself on Monday. They woke up at 5:30 & 6:00 the next morning. Which isn't bad, but since Randall has been home they have been waking up at 8 & 8:30. Kaylie is coming around lunch time now & staying until bedtime. They are now eating 5 oz every 4 1/2-5 hours. They go to the dr Monday. I can't wait to see how much the boys weigh.
