9 months update

Tyler, Julie and Noah turned 9 months old on the 17th and I know I say it all the time but where has the time gone? We took them to their 9 months check up which went and they are all healthy with the exception of Tyler having been put on an iron containing vitamin since his Hemoglobin was a little on the low side. They also received their Hepatitis and Flu vaccinations which they took like champs, well almost. Here are their stats as of September 19th:

Tyler - 19 lbs 3 oz, 28 3/4 inches

Julie - 16 lbs 14 oz, 27 inches

Noah - 17 lbs 7 oz, 27 1/2 inches

Julie and Noah are in their lower percentile of their growth chart and Tyler right below average. The pediatrician is however satisfied with their growth physically and developmentally considering that they were born 7 weeks prematurely.

Unfortunately the day after our doctor's visit all of the babies started having diarrhea which lasted for several days and made their little behinds blister even though I was always making sure their dirty diapers were changed. I don't think I have ever changed that many diapers in my entire life!

Anyway, as I said before, they are all growing as expected but our little Julie has yet to manage to sit up on her own nor crawl. She does however scoot around and let me assure you that she is almost as fast as the two boys. Needless to say I am certain that she will be up on her knees in a matter of a couple of weeks if even that long. They all love to stand up, however Tyler is the only one so far who will pull himself up into a standing position.

And these are all the updates as of right now and I will leave with some recent pictures I took.

Celebrations

Gosh, I have really been slow posting and this time I can't blame it on a broken laptop. I just don't know where my motivation has gone. Maybe it has to do that those kids just keep me busy all day long. They are at a point now where you constantly have to watch them. If they are not rolling, scooting or crawling all over the place, they are doing other silly things like chewing on Lucas' toys, stealing each other's pacifiers, wrestle each other in ways that at times looks rather hurtful. But it is still so much fun to watch!

Last Sunday we went to my friend Stacey's daughter's 1st Birthday party and we all had a wonderful time. We got to spend quite some time outdoors and Lucas got to ride his first real pony. He definitely enjoyed himself especially since there were lots of farm animals and other kids to play with. The babies were on their best behavior as usual and everyone was asleep in their car seats on the way home.

Abby's 1st Birthday!


We had our little party of our own again the day after with the party hats!

A few days ago we also celebrated our 16th anniversary and we got to enjoy some alone time having dinner at a restaurant while Granny watched the bunch. That was only the second time since the triplets were born that we had some alone time. Wow, how our life has changed in our 16 years of marriage. I can't wait to see what the future has in store for us now that we have our amazing Quartet.

That is all for today...I am tired and need to get me a few hours of sleep before the first feeding of the day will be calling for me. I wouldn't want it any other way though :-)

Geaux Tigers!

We will be cheering on our favorite College Football Team - the LSU Tigers! Well, I'm not so sure about the kiddos since the game doesn't start until 21h30. But the important part is that we are all showing our team spirit today. Geaux Tigers!

End of Summer Blog Party

Multiples and More Blog Network are giving away tons of stuff at their End of Summer Blog Party. Everyone is invited and you do not even have to have multiples. Check it out by clicking on the button below.



Personally, I am glad the summer is almost over! I am looking forward to some cooler weather so that I can actually spend some time outside with all the kids. I have experienced two extremely bad summers here in Louisiana with Hurricanes Katrina in 2005 and Gustav in 2008. During both hurricanes I was pregnant which made things even more uncomfortable than it already was. Unfortunately hurricane season is not over with the end of summer but we will begin to get a little break from the heat and humidity.
Happy End of Summer!
