Love their little serious faces!

Hi everyone! It's me...Kim...Trio Momma...Too many dang babies Momma...whatever...

Remember me? Yeah...Not sure I remember myself sometimes. Today probably isn't the best day for me to blog, it wasn't one of the best I have had, but I owe ya'll some pics. I started to post earlier today around oohhh...3ish. NOPE! Got Momma baby drama! So now, it is approximately 9:40 PM, and it took me 30 minutes to decide I would go ahead and post. I know if I don't do it today, I probably won't do it until next weekend. Deuce and Mia had a day today. I tell you! First part of the day went pretty pretty good. About 2:00...natural disaster in the Thompson household. You know its one of those days when the baby that has been screaming her face off for what seems like EVER, stops crying to watch you cry. Uggh!!! I hate to admit that, but I am sure Mom's with one baby have momentary melt downs every now and again.

So lets stuff...Everyone is rolling belly to back now. Deuce started about a week ago so needless to say he rolls himself over in the middle of the night and wakes himself 2 or 3 times. (Yesssssss, I do put them to sleep on their bellies despite allllll the instructions not to. Sorry, I just beleive too much stuff is passed off on SIDS, and that is all I will say. I don't want to debate belly sleeping, just my personal opinion/preference. Not to say that nurses and doctors are wrong, or parents that do follow the rules are either, it has just worked for me this way. Sorry) So, Deuce fusses. I thought him being a thumb sucker was going to change my life...uhh NO. Jevin has been trying really hard for a while to suck his thumb, but he tucks it like the letter "n" in sign language. I told Marcus, it doesn't matter if he finds his thumb or not at this point, as soon as he learn how to roll belly to back, it's all over anyway. Well he rolls belly to back as of Saturday. : What else??? They coo and talk like crazy, they are almost giggling for real real now. They love TV. Mia loves to be naked. They slobber on everything and everyone. Mia might hold her own bottle very soon. I don't want to jump the gun, but she seems to know how to hold it, pull it out, put it back...her hands just look a little funny and she moves them around too much. Every now and then she just spontaneously lets go as if she has no idea she is holding the bottle. I don't know... Umm. Tummy time is going good. They all do well. We have a couple of bumbo seats they sit in quite a bit. Sometimes in the morning I will sit Mia in the bumbo and put her on the bathroom counter while I am getting ready. She loves to look at herself.

Just stuff

Hello all. Sorry, I don't have pics to post...well I could post pics, but I am going to opt out this time. For one, I am extremely tired and don't feel like waiting for "blogger" to think. For some reason, It takes forever to post pics the last few times. Just thought I would let everyone know, things are moving right along in triplet land.

The babies are getting more fun by the day. Mia seems to be calming her attitude a bit. She is much more smiley now days, as are the boys. They seem to smile most when you are slightly perturbed...4 in the morning, 10 at night (when you just want to go to sleep), and so on. The boys have started trying to suck their fingers off. Deuce is a full fledged thumb sucker now. You could look at this in a good and bad way. I would prefer that they didn't become thumb suckers, but at the same time it means he might be able to start soothing himself at 2:30am. I have pictures by the way...I will post them as soon as I can get time or should I say strength. As most have read already, after 3 months of musical pacifiers, diaper assembly lines, and many many hours of baby talk, I have returned to work. Time is precious...I see the babies all of 3-4 waking hours a day. Out of these 3-4 hours, we sometimes get a full hour of tag team fussing, but sometimes not. They sometimes decide they have all of the sudden forgotten how to sleep through the night like they have been the last 2 weeks or so. Then again it is not sleeping sleeping through the night. They go to bed between 8 and 9pm and usually wake (if we are really lucky) at about 5 AM.ish, maybe 6ish. They do occasionally wake in the night, but not for feeding. But everything is going well. Everyday is something new, cute, and exciting. The boys are about a week away from needing size 2 diapers. Jevin might skip size 2 all together (he is soooo chunky/heavy!) Mia will be moving to size 1 once we run out of newborn (Finally growing out of something). Can you believe she is nearly 4 months old and still wearing NB diapers? Heck, she probably has a good 2 weeks left before she is grown out of 0-3mo cloths. Jevin cries when he finishes a 5oz bottle and has been drinking 6-7oz easily. I don't know what happened to 5oz, but he completely skipped it. He quite possibly might be considered obese at this point. They coo up a storm...the "experts" say they should giggle soon. I can't wait! Overall, we are rolling with the punches. They are much fun and incredibly precious (except @ NOT precious! You see, I am way over the up all night thing. Especially since I know they are capable of sleeping 7-9 hours straight.)

Happy New Year!

This is the progression of photos...we are all doing... ok. Jevin is starting to have a small melt down.

Jevin's still having a hard time, Mia decides she isn't too happy and punches Deuce in the face...Yes, I should have done a bigger box, but I underestimated the size of my little people...

Yep...Picture taking time is over...

The many faces of Mia...

No New Years pics just yet. I am just getting to post the Christmas pictures we took a week ago. I came to the conclusion any pictures I want with all three of them will probably be dysfunctional. I have posted the best I could get. The pics worked out well with just the boys, then later in the evening, Mia decided she would let me get some pics of her.

So....I went back to work on the 21st. That was a hard hard day. I did well, but everyone wanted to keep asking if it was hard to leave the babies. I would have to hold back. I didn't want to cry, but I made it through the day pretty well. After 2 weeks it is still hard to leave sometimes. I miss them like crazy during the day. I just hope they are all still awake when I get home in the evenings so I can hold them, or feed them, or rock them, or talk to them, or really so they can see me... I have this weird fear they will forget who I am...they were just starting to love me. I have always been very business focused, career focused, financially focused, whatever you want to call it. I have never, never, ever, never, ever saw my self has a stay at home mom, but now that I have them, I could totally be the stay at home soccer mom with the minivan, and sometimes, very much so, wish I was. At the same time it is nice to have other interaction in my life.
So everything is well. The kids are changing so much. I left for work Monday, Mia was the only baby cooing and talking up a storm, I come home and Jevin is talking too. Except Jevin's talking is a cross between crying and talking. He kinda whines when he talks. It is so cute! and the shape his little mouth forms when he is making little sounds is so so so adorable. Makes me giggle every time. Deuce, I know he can coo, but he has decided he will not talk to Mommy. Mia is finally starting to grow out of things besides preemie clothes (the last thing she grew out of). She might be moving to 3-6months soon. The boys, on the other hand have been in 3-6mo for a while and it seems they might be in 6-9mo by the end of January possibly. They have all found their hands. They are constantly grasping one hand with the other and trying to suck their fingers off. Also cute! And the best news of all, for the last 3 nights they have ALL slept through the night. They go down about 9pm and sleep until 5:30-6:30. How they all decided to do this on the exact same night is beyond me...Well actually, Jevin probably could have been sleeping through the night for longer, but out of fear of being up all night, every night, I would wake them all to eat each time one of them would wake up. Maybe one or two nights before this miracle happened, Jevin slept through the night. And one or two of them might fuss in the middle of the night, but if we just give them their pacifier, they go back to sleep. Waking to walk to the other room for 1 1/2 minutes is MUCH better then waking for an hour to change, feed, and rock back to sleep. Lets see...what else? I think that's about it for new stuff...

For the old I have mentioned previously, I still have a hard time grasping the reality of my life. Tonight, I was rocking Miss Mia. She was incredibly angelic in her slumber. Her little hand would occasionally rub back and forth just below my shoulder as if she was caressing me, so happy I am her mommy. Her little face so beautiful and precious. Looking at her, I once again just thought to myself, at one time I wasn't sure when we would have one little person to hold, let alone three. I told Marcus, I sometimes think those around me are much more in touch with the reality of my life with children then I am. I still, after 3 months, find myself thinking, "Wow! I get to keep these cool little people!" They bring you so many emotions. Of course, don't think it is all roses everyday, all day. There are moments, even days where you feel, at any moment, you might loose your sanity, but something they do to you, makes you forget all about the craziness they bring sometimes. I am telling one of my kids at least every other day, "Don't smile at me...I am trying to be mad at you!" So they smile and then what? Ugh....
Well all...that's it for now. Happy New Year, hope everyone's Holidays were filled with Joy.
