Baby Chaos!!!!!!

Ummm yeah, that is the only word that I can think of at the moment is CHAOS! I have finally felt half way human again and have found a little time to be able to blog.....sorry :( We now have all 3 babies home! Braylea got to come home on July 20th. So far all 3 are doing good. We have been to see eye doctors, cardiologist & the pedi all in a matter of a week. Talk about CRAZY!! Luckily my mom and sister have been there to help. I just feel bad because my mother has to take off of work to go to appts with me, but she does it willingly and for that I am thankful. Once Braylea got home, I tried to stick to the schedule they were on in the NICU, but that flew out the window pretty quick because Braylea was on a totally different schedule as the other 2 since she was in the NICU 2 weeks longer. So in between cluster feeding and diaper changes every 3 hours, I have been making a mad dash to the bed in hopes of getting at least an hour of sleep at a time! It just makes it that much harder since I don't have any help during the week because the hubster and my mom have to work and other grandmother that doesn't work just doesn't show any interest in them. When I was pregnant with the triplets everyone was all about "We will be there to help you!!", but now that they are home no is around. So that sucks, but I am survivng! I have recently made a new found friend though! She is my saving grace! She has 1 year old triplet boys and and older boy to. We met through our pediatrician. She has been soooo awesome. Her and her mother-in-law have cooked meals to go in the freezer for us and she has donated soo much stuff to us. Not only that but she lends a shoulder to cry on, an ear to listen, and offers advice when she can since she is in the same boat I am but with a years more experience than me. I can not express in words how much she has already done for us. Thanks, Mauri!
Bradyn, on the other hand, is slowly adjusting to having his sisters around. He loves to give them "kisses" all the time. But he is still starting to exhibit his "terrible 2" habits, and most recently he has shown us he has learned the art of throwing temper tantrums!
So that is just a quick note on my world, sooo much has gone on for me to remember and to post on here. Here is a slide show of all of my babies.

Until Next Time,
Take Care!!


2 Months Old~~2 down, 1 to go!!

Well, once again, it's been a while since I posted!! Alot has happened. We now have 2 babies home and 1 still in the NICU. As much as I hated leaving Braylea by herself, we got to bring Addisyn (the first born) and Jayci (the smallest & last born) home on the 2nd of this month. Braylea had to stay in the NICU because she was still continuing to have bradycardic episodes when she was eating because she was still having trouble coordinating her suck, breath & swallow thing. So when Addisyn & Jayci were ready to go, the doc & I had a long discussion about whether to leave them there with Braylea or take them home. I decided to go ahead & bring them home because the doc said that Braylea could continue her episodes for a few days or a few weeks, it was up to her, and that he wouldn't send her home until she was episode free for a week. I didn't want to leave them there when there was no reason for them to be there and risk them catching another infection or having another setback. Soooo, they are home with Braylea hopefully to follow next week. Her last episode was on the 7th and she hasn't had any more since, so the countdown begins! It has been hard not getting to be up there with her as much as I would like. I get to go up there only once a day to see her and love on her. During the week my mom goes and feeds her as much as she can since she works at the hospital, so she is just around the corner from Braylea. The nurses tell me that they hold her and love on her all the time, so I know she will be spoiled when she gets home!! They say they feel sorry for her because you can tell she misses her sisters because she was always the one in the middle. I just hope she remembers who her mommy is :( .
Anyways, the first week home with 2- 2 month olds and a 19 month old has been quit interesting. Surprisingly the girls have not been that bad at all (yet). I have been keeping them on the same schedule where they eat every 3-4 hours etc. 30 minutes apart from each other and so far it has been working. We had our first pedi appt on Thursday & all went well. The doc was pleased that we didn't go home on any monitors or meds and that all we have to do is follow up with the eye doctor and the cardiologist. Otherwise, they are perfectly healthy and are continuing to grow like crazy! My 19 month old on the other hand has been quite a character since we got them home. He isn't bad with the girls, just with me & daddy. It is amazing how he has learned to tear the house apart even more than what he already does in just one week, and all the different ways he can get our attention (whether good or bad)! He has also learned what "time out" is to. It just kills me to discipline him because he just looks at you with his tear filled baby blue eyes and says "sowry".....ughhh that kills me every time! But hopefully he will start getting better. He likes to give his "sissies" kisses and give me their bottles when I am getting ready to feed them. He also runs to their room when he gets home from daycare to make sure they are still here.

Here are the statistics on the triplets for the 2 months:

Baby A~ Addisyn: Birth: 3 lbs 2.8 oz, 15 inches

2 months: 7 lbs 1.5 oz, 19 3/4 inches

Baby B~ Braylea: Birth: 3 lbs 4.5 oz, 15 3/4 inches

2 months: 6 lbs 11.4 oz, 19 1/2 inches

Baby C~ Jayci: Birth: 2 lbs 13.9 oz, 14 1/2 inches

2 months: 6 lbs 1 oz, 19 inches

And last but not least, here some pics to enjoy!
