My husband and I met in Germany where we also got married in 1993. In April of 2006 I gave birth to our first child, a son named Lucas. In December of 2008 we welcomed our triplets Tyler, Julie and Noah. And this is how our journey as a family of 6 continues...
As I had mentioned in my previous post we had two little men who weren't feeling too well. Come to find out Lucas developed strep throat which turned into the flu and I cannot even begin to describe how sick he has been. The hardest thing was getting him to drink any kind of fluids and trying to get him to take his antibiotics and keeping it down. Today was the first day that he was somewhat back to his normal self.
Tyler caught a cold and has fortunately not had any fever and is doing rather well except for a constant runny nose and a little cough. Julie and Noah had a little bit of a temperature the last two days but are otherwise doing just fine. I'm hoping that this virus is moving its way out of our house.
Since everyone is starting to improve and I need some cheering up I am going to post some of my favorite silly pictures I took within the last couple of weeks. They always put a smile on my face and I am happy to be able to share them with all of you. Enjoy!
Here are pictures of our little zoo that we took trick-or-treating and then to the State Fair on Halloween night.
Unfortunately trick-or-treating was rather dull since people decided to neither decorate their homes nor to give out any candy. I just don't know what happened to our neighborhood - it just didn't use to be like that and I don't want to think that our poor economy has anything to do with this.
At least the fair was nice and we finally got to enjoy some more of this beautiful cool fall weather. Lucas went on his first Merry Go Round and Ferris Wheel rides and had a blast. But I think his favorite thing was seeing and petting the little farm animals. He even got to ride a pony and was yelling "Hee Haw" throughout the entire ride. The babies just checked out all the surroundings and started fussing when it was getting close to feeding time. But mommy was able to quiet them down in no time by feeding them some fresh made funnel cake. Those babies will eat just about anything!
Unfortunately early Sunday morning Lucas started running a fever and couldn't keep any Tylenol down or anything else thereafter. His fever is finally gone and his stomach is starting to settle down a bit but a nasty sore throat has taken its place. Poor baby is just not the same energetic little boy I'm used to - he is definitely miserable. On top of it Tyler is not feeling well either. He couldn't keep his last bottle down last night and he's been very lethargic. Let's cross our fingers that he will not develop any fever and it was just a 24 hour bug and that the other two babies will stay healthy!
Hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween!
Noah aka cute leopard
Tyler aka Granny's lil' stinker
Julie aka moo moo
Lucas aka roaring Dinosaur
This is the best I could do with four kids! Tyler wanted to crawl towards us and Julie was checking out the attic door I assume.
