And what a sweet month it’s been. I don’t have a lot of time for a detailed account (how DID I update so much with triplet babies?!) but I have millions of pictures to document. Here are just a few ;)
The boys found that you could print recipes off pbskids.org. They got their hearts set on one, and I finally gave in one day. Alex calls these apple “crips”, and I loved playing in the kitchen with him!
KC’s mom came to visit for a few days. She kept he kids very busy with lots of fun activities and outings which gave me plenty of rest time with the baby. It was also the first week of spring break (it’s two weeks for us) so it was nice to have Grandma here to switch things up. The kids had a blast!
She didn’t pass the hearing test twice in the hospital, so we had to go back after two weeks to retest. Of course it was freezing and snowy that day. She Passed! It isn’t unusual for early babies with quick deliveries to retain some fluid in their ears and have to be retested.
Her biggest fans. They laugh so hard at every little thing she does. The LOVE when her eyes are open, and laugh their heads off if she holds their finger or touches them at all. As I write this post they sigh at every cute picture of her. They truly adore everything about her.
Matching nightgowns. Hazel’s is for a doll. I couldn’t find it for a while and I know it would’ve been a perfect fit right when we brought her home. At least we got some pics before she had totally grown out of it.
I was excited for the kids to finally go back to school for obvious reasons, but also because I wanted to start walking them home from school with the baby in the Moby. I never did want to walk to or from school during the pregnancy, so it’s nice to finally have the energy.
She still sleeps most of the day, usually swaddled up tight, in the taco, bassinet, on the Boppy, in the swing, in the bouncy seat, on my bed, or of course, on me. Sometimes she goes down effortlessly and stays there for hours, other times I have to hold her to keep her that way. She eats every 2-3 hours during the day, 3-4 (occasionally 5) hours at night. I get tired, but I know this won’t last forever so I’m enjoying my little baby while I can. I hate that she has to grow but know that each stage comes with new cute things that I wouldn’t want to miss. I just can’t stand how beautiful she is and how much I love her.
