I'm Back

Well my computer is fixed and in less time than they told me and at cost was at the low end of the estimate!!!! All great things:) I thought being without my computer was going to be bad, but you have no idea how bad till it actually happens. Being a full time mom to infant triplets and a almost 4 year old I don't go many places except the store and preschool. The Internet is my lifeline to the outside, I talk to my mom, aunt and brother a lot and my one friend Carly, but other than that it's me and the kids. I'm so glad the computer is fixed.

Not having the computer gave me some time to catch up on house work. It actually came at a good time since Nicholas turns 4 on Sunday and we are having a fairly big party. There will be a total of 26 people in my house and it's not a huge house. Mostly family and 2 of Nick's friends and their mom's. It should be fun, we are having a puppy theme and my WONDERFUL mom is making Nick cupcakes that look like different puppies. And on Monday Clyde and I are taking Nick to the kalahari water park resort in sandusky OH. It's going to be a fun time:)

I was asking people what kind of clips they use for their little girls hair because Ella has some wild hair and the clips I got just fall right out. One of the moms at Nick's school told me about Ribbies, she said you can get them at Target, but I could never find them so I googled them and ordered them direct. They are AWESOME and well worth the $$.

Well I will have more updates and lot's of Pics after we get back from the water park.

Make that two!!

Jackson popped his second tooth today:) I think that is it for him for a bit, I can't see or feel anything else. I guess he is going to wait to Ella and Cooper to catch up.

Hockey here we come!!!



Nicholas went ice skating for the first time last night with his cousin Jewell and he did a great job for never having been on skates before. He fell as soon as he got on the ice but got right up and two girls helped him around the ice and he had fun. After Jewell was done with her test she can over and skated with Nick it was cute.

Fresh Air

It was such a beautiful day here in Michigan, almost 60 degrees I think. So my friend Carly and I took the kids (her 2 & my 4) for a nice walk around the neighborhood. It was a bit windy, but it felt so good to be out in the fresh air. We all enjoyed it!!

I didn't get a solo pic of Jack after our walk because, well I don't know why. I thought I took one but I guess not. Sorry buddy, I'll get you in next time.

7 Months

Seriously where the heck have the last 7 months gone??? My tiny preemie babies are no longer. I have 2 chunky monkey's and one peanut. Everyone is still in 3-6 month clothes, but Jackson and Ella are quickly moving towards 9 month. Cooper can still wear size 1-2 diapers, but Ella and Jack are full time in size 2 and Jackson will be solely in size 3 this week. Meal time has gotten much better. They all seem to like to eat, but each of them have times where they just don't want to eat. Cooper is the best when it comes to eating and If I let them they would all eat bananas and ONLY bananas and each could polish off a stage 2 alone if I let them. Jackson is my big bad boy. He has been the first to do everything and I fear that crawling and walking are not that far off. I just remember what is was like chasing after one baby, I can't even imagine what 3 babies and a 4 year old is going to be like.We had some visitors today.


All of my in law's came over to take a family picture with all 13 people for my sisters in law's 30 birthday party slide show. I'm kind of dreading Nick's birthday party because that was only part of the people that will be here and it was to many for me. Oh well. At least my house got picked up. It seems like the only way to get the house clean is to invite people over. LOL Then my neighbor Shanda and her boy's came for a quick visit, it was nice to see them:)

Dear Mother Nature,

Please bring spring soon. I need to get out of the house and the babies need fresh air!!!

How could I forget!!!

On Thursday when my mom and Fran were here Cooper rolled over!!!! And not just one roll but he did a complete roll from back to tummy and then tummy to back. Apparently my mom and Fran need to be here more often because he rolled when they were here when Clyde and I went away last month. He hasn't rolled since then, well maybe once, but I didn't see it and I'm not convinced Nick didn't help him;) What made me remember this was when I got him this morning out of bed he was on his tummy.

We had a nice visit and Fran brought us a case of diapers. Thanks Fran, you are keeping well stocked!!! I can't wait for our trip up north this summer, we invited Fran to go with us and we are going to have a GREAT time!!! I am very excited about that trip, but I don't want to wish the next 4 months away we have a lot going on. Nick's b-day, both mine and Clyde's b-day, our anniversary and lots of odds and ends in between. Plus I have a big first birthday bash to plan for July!!!

Teeth and Taxes:-)

Well we have our first tooth. Mr Jackson the first to do everything is the first to pop a tooth. He has not been cranky or acting like a teething baby in any way but when I picked him up yesterday out of the jumperoo his jammies were soaked with drool to his waist so I took a peek and sure enough one little white spot and when I felt it it was a sharp little tooth. I can see the other bottom tooth on him so I'm sure it's not far behind. Ella and Cooper are drooling machines and chew on everything, but I don't really see anything yet. I took Nick to a birthday party over the weekend and there was a baby there a month plus younger than mine and she had 8 teeth already!!!


We have been eathing a lot around here, the only things left to try are green beans and sweet potatoes. So far bananas have been the favorite for all 3 and peas the least favorite. Jackson not fond of peas



Cooper not to sure




No more please:(






You know having triplets is a drain on the pocket book, but come tax time I wish I had octuplets;) Not really. LOL But seriously we will be getting a very nice mini van payed for 95% from our tax return. Other than the daily joy's of 4 children under 4 the tax benefit is awesome!!!






Let's see what else has been going on. It was really nice on Sunday 40 degrees I think (it's sad that 40 is NICE weather) So Nick suited up and went out to play in the snow.






And this is what happens if a preschooler gets your camera





Oh and the most exciting news since my last post is about our summer vacation. My Mom and Aunt are renting a house on Big Platte Lake in northern Michigan this summer and we are all going to have a blast!!! I can't wait. My Mom and dear family friend Fran are coming over tomorrow so I had better get to picking up my house:)
