Happy Birthday!!!!

Happy Birthday to my 3 little miracles!! I cannot believe it has already been 2 years. I know it did not go this fast with Racheal!! Today always takes me back to this day 2 years ago when I was in the hopital, leaking fluid & blood...not knowing what was going to happen. I remember probably around 3 or 4 they came in & whisked me down to l&d so they could watch me more closely since I was loosing large amounts of blood. Then Dr. Tabor came in & said we need to do a c-section now. After that it was pretty much a blur. I remeber we were waiting on blood for me from the blood bank & Randall was running around drying to get cameras & the the cord blood paperwork & trying to call everyone. I got blood & was rushed into the O.R. Then at 6:32 pm Rylie was born, 6:34 Reese was born & 6:35 Ryan was born. I remember hearing Rylie cry & it was a huge relief. I remember waiting to hear Reese & I never did. I was so scared & wanted to jump off that table to check on her. Randall could see what they were doing & told me they were intubating her. I don't remember hearing Ryan either, but Randall told me he was ok. After that everything is really a blur. I didn't get to see them in the O.R.. I turned my head & watched at they rolled them out of the room into the NICU. After they were finished with my surgery, I went to recovery. I had tons of family & friends come in to see me, but I was still pretty much out of it. Then they closed the NICU & wheeled my bed into there so I could see the babies. I don't really remember what they looked like. They were hard to see from the bed & I was still doped up. Below are pictures from when they were born thru today. Also I uploaded pictures to the previous post so make sure you check those out too.

Crazy couple of weeks!

Sorry it has been a while since I have posted. It has been very crazy around here. The triples seem to all be feeling better finally. Racheal still has an ear infection. She is now taking 2 antibiotics so hopefully that will clear it up.

Last Saturday was PEG's 1st Penny Auction. We had an amazing turnout. We had 1000 cups & sold them all 20 before it started. We also ran out of chairs & food in the concession stand. We raised almost $6000. We were very excited about the turnout & the amount raised.

Last week I also finally got my laundry room cabinets. If you remember 1 1/2 yrs ago the house flooded & we moved the laundry room. Well I have been working like crazy getting them stained. They are now finished & filled up. I even have some shelves that don't have anything on them. That is a 1st for us!

We have also been working on getting everything ready for the big birthday party. The triplets birthday is this Sunday. Still can't believe they are already going to be 2!!! We are not having their party until next Saturday. The theme is 3 Ring Circus which is very fitting for our house. The boys seem to have hit the terrible 2's. Ryan likes to push & take away toys. Reese received the bad end of that. Last Sunday he pushed her & went flying across the living room. She had large gash on her right eyebrow. Luckily Randall was here & he used wound glue to close it up.

It also snowed this week. They did a little better this time. Rylie & Reese still would not move unless they were holding my hand. Ryan still loved it. He ran and ran. He also tubed down the hill with Racheal.

Happy Valentines!!!!!

It has been pretty crazy around here. It seems like the kids have been sick forever. We have had coughs & runny noses. It usually starts with Racheal & then makes its rounds to everyone. Right now Rylie has an ear infection in both ears & Ryan still has a cough & snotty nose. My allergies have also been horrible.

The little kids are talking more & more. They all say Racheal in their own different way. Rylie did something the other day & Racheal said "oh my gosh". He repeated "my gosh!" It was so cute!

We did have some exciting news on Monday. Kim Ross Sloan that worked for us for the school year 08-09 had her baby boy. Kaleb Paul was born by c-section at 12:48 in Brownwood. He was 8lbs 10 oz & 20 inches long. We went to see them yesterday right after they got home. He is really cute. Now Racheal has another baby brother.
