It has been a really busy month with lots of firsts!
A new exersaucer! All the boys are loving sitting up more! Henry is rockin out!
Johnny jump up! We haven't spent too much time in here yet... But they love what time they have been in there! Go Grahammy go!
This is Nolan's new favorite play spot! Talks a lot to himself in the mirror!
We have started cereal and fruit and veggies!
Graham took to it immediately! Henry and Nolan took a few times but now they all look forward to their 5pm dinner in their high chairs!
We submitted this picture to Gerber's photo contest! Voting starts November 4th!
We had another shower for the boys... This one hosted by Dave's family. The boys were passed around and snuggled and got a lot more clothes and fun toys!!
We are getting so much better at tummy time! Really starting to recognize each other! Nolan and Graham are chatting away!
Henry is our "fall asleep anytime anywhere" baby!
Our boys are almost 5 months old... I can't help but have them match every now and again!
The boys finally got to meet their "guncles"- Dave's gay uncles- Mike and Ed. Nolan Michael and Graham Edward are named after them! They came into town for their baptism from Tennessee. ( I will blog soon about that) we are very close to Mike and Ed and loved all the time they got to spend with us and the boys this weekend!
This journey as parents of triplets is a wild ride, but we are soaking up all these wonderful moments! It is going so fast! I just pulled out their bag of preemie clothes tonight... even though it was only 5 months ago, I can't believe our babies were so tiny! They are growing so well... and so fast! We are blessed!
Our sleeping patterns? We are getting better at sleeping. We do recognize our days and our nights... although our days like to start really early.... sometimes at 5-6am. We go to sleep after bath around 7pm and each only wake up once... sometimes Graham wakes up an extra time or two just to be cuddled.... not a habit we are trying to support. We take about 2 naps a day. Graham takes more frequent shorter naps, and Henry and Nolan take a morning nap and Afternoon nap.
Our eating schedule? We are eating every 3-4 hours... 4 ounces, sometimes 5. Graham takes down is bottle pretty quickly, but dont stop feeding him to burp, he may not take the bottle after that anymore. Henry has started to drink half... and then the other half and hour later, finish... Nolan is our awesome eater, always finishing his bottle, and sometimes finishes what his brothers cant!
Our favorite foods? Still Neosure formula... hoping to introduce cereal soon!
Our likes? The TV, any attention, feeding time, bath time, snuggle time, walks outside, being held.
Our dislikes? tummy time after about 5 minutes, getting out of the tub, getting our noses sucked (cold have hit our house), 4 month shots :(
Our favorite games/toys? peek-a-boo, activity mats, talking with people who come to visit, patty-cake, rattles, anything with lights and music!
Our milestones? Holding heads up, starting to rock from side to side (trying to roll), eating hands, smiles, coo's, sleeping longer hours at night, recognizing faces, noticing each other!
Things we do to make Mom and Dad smile? laughs, coo's, all the farts and burps in our house (get used to that one), the cute outfits mommy dresses you in.
We are loving everyday with these little guys! The doctor gave us a great report, and that they are growing faster than average! Their personalities are coming out strong! Henry, our sweet, mellow, yet talkative big guy! Nolan, our flirt, who smiles all the time, and always lets you know if he is happy or sad! Graham, our feisty little guy, very observant and always has sometime to say, and is very particular in everything he does/needs!
