Finally an update!

I know it has been a while, but it has been a crazy few weeks around here. We were featured on the Multiples & More blog. They did an awesome job. If you missed it, click on their button to the left. The next morning Racheal said the pledge on a radio station in the DFW area. She did an awesome job! Then on that Friday the stomach bug hit our house!! Racheal was sick Thursday night & missed her first day of school on Friday. Randall left for work that day & was gone until Monday. Then Sunday afternoon I got sick & Sunday night Rylie got sick. When Randall got home Monday he gave me a shot & sent me to bed. Then the door bell rang & it was a police officer. Evidently we had been robbed Sunday night & we didn't know it. They stole our back pack that we used as a diaper bag & the police officer had found all the contents of the bag by the road. There were many people that had things stolen out of their vehicles that night. We were told that they were caught.

So last week was spent recovering from our horrible weekend. We did enjoy getting to play outside some last week. I am also working on getting rid of this triplet belly I have had for the last 2 years! I did loose 5 lbs when I was sick. I went today & did boot camp with my cousin Mary Beth. Lets hope I can walk in the morning! lol

The triplets are talking more & more everyday. Rylie talks almost non-stop, but you can't understand what he says. Ryan likes to repeat everything you say. One of the cartoons Racheal watches they say "your busted", Ryan says "I beested". It is so cute. Randall & I were in the kitchen this afternoon working on the sink because we had a leak and here comes Ryan walking in. I said how did you get out of the pen? I put him back in & he looks at me with that sly little look he has & stepped up on the handle to recliner & swung his leg over the gate. Great! I knew this day would come sooner or later, but was hoping for later!! I still cannot believe in a month they will be 2 years old!! We have also been getting ready for their party. We are having a very small party this year. Last year was exhausting so I decided to go small this year.

Multiples & More!!!

Be sure to check out Multiples & More blog tomorrow. We are being featured on their blog. Just click on the button on the left & it will take you to their blog.

Racheal is finally back to school this week. She was not very excited to go back. Her teacher is still on maternity leave & she is ready for her to come back. The triplets are talking more & more every day. They still jabber in "japanese"a lot, but are say more words too. I finally got a crib tent for Rylie's bed. He would throw his blanket out at nap time & during the night. He then would scream for hours. So now he can't throw it out & has slept all night since. They are all eating with a fork really well now & pretty much refuse to eat unless they have a fork now.

Happy New Year!!

I was looking back at posts from a year ago. Man have we come a long way. Ryan was the only one that had any teeth. They were just starting to crawl. Now they are running all over the place. They all have a mouth full of teeth!! Yes, We survived another year with triplets!!!! Can you believe in 2 short months they will be 2 years old!!! YIKES!! Seems like yesterday I was banned to the couch & now they are almost 2! I know it did not go this fast with Racheal. On Tuesday, Jan 12th we will be featured on http://www.multiplesandmore.blogspot.com.

Rylie has brown eyes like daddy & big sister. He has the thickest hair I have ever seen & it grows so fast. He is the honorary one. I am sure I will lots of talks with his teacher when he starts school. He only gives kisses at bedtime & sometimes he just sticks his cheek out for kisses. He has all his teeth except for the 2 year molars. He says momma, dadda, bubba, sissy, bye-bye. Mickey, Manny (for Handy Manny), uh-oh, cookie, quack-quack, ruff-ruff, ball, What's that?, thank you.

Reese is still the shortest of the bunch. I think she is going to take after her Nana. She also has blue eyes like Nana. She is a little tease at bedtime. She will stand in the corner & pucker up, but when you walk over to her, she falls down & laughs. Reese also has got some dance moves. She is hilarious. She sticks her little bottom out & just bounces. She has all her teeth except for her canine teeth & back molars. She is working on the canine teeth. Several of them are poking through the skin. Pooh bear is pooh-pooh. She says sissy, bubba, snowman, mickey, minnie, uh-oh, cookie, baby, quack-quack

Ryan is the tallest. His eyes have changed to hazel. He is the most talkative. If you tell him to say something, he tries to repeat it. Elmo is melmo. He goes to the window everyday to look for the snowman. He is the only one that like the snow. Kim is im. He is very protective of bubba & sissy. He always wants to know where they are. He is also the most affectionate one. I bet I get a hundred hugs a day & I love it!! He has all his teeth, except for the 2 year molars, but he is working on getting them. He also calls pooh bear pooh-pooh. He says cute, cold, bye-bye, uh oh, Mickey, Mandy, thank you, uh-oh, eat, cookie, pick up-pick up, ball, baby, ruff-ruff, quack-quack, mooo, shoe, side (outside). He says ewww when he needs his nose wiped or he is poopy.

We also tried giving them all a fork yesterday & they did great. So now I have to buy more forks for them. I am going to steal a new year's resolution from another triplet mom & say we will be diaper free by the end of the year!!! How awesome that will be!!!!

This is the snow that was hanging over the edge of the roof.
The snow drifts were really deep. Some in our yard were a couple of feet deep.
