Ok, so yes, a super long time since my last post! I have to tell you, just when I think my plate is full, I get stuck with a second serving! Not only do I have 6 month old triplets, I have a full time job, attend college (online), and I now have to become licensed to service real estate accounts, which consists of logging a minimum of 20 hours in an online course and passing a federal exam, if I want to keep my full time job that is. THEN, as if this isn't enough, my class in college is statistics. So, I was hopeful, just make it through statistics and my life will be easier...uh NO! Now I have statistics II. You have got to be kidding me!! All the while, there is a pandemic running ramped in the Thompson household! Yeah...I promise for everyone that enjoys reading this blog, I love doing the blog and really Really REALLY intend to keep up to date better...its just not working out that way right now. Be patient, I will get it together soon...maybe after Stats II.
I mentioned the pandemic. Literally, it is like a miniature pandemic. I started with Deuce a month or so ago. I thought we had made it through that one without Mia and Jevin contracting the heavy wheezing. And maybe we did, but about two weeks ago Jevin starts wheezing. Mia has a cough. Ok, no big deal...I can do this! Hook Jevin up with a few nebulizer treatments a few times a day or when needed. No temperatures, so we're still ok right? Right. Within a few days Mia and Jevin are waking up with dried snot on every stinking inch of their precious little faces. Wonderful! Runny noses and buggers to add to Jevin's wheezing & Mia's sad little cough. A few days later...a temperature!!!! My initial thought, "This better NOT be R.S.V. or I will be sending a chain of hate mail to my insurance company!" So off to Dr. Reyes'. Like Deuce, R.S.V. is negative, but surprise!! Jevin has bronchiolitis AND an ear infection with a virus that has R.S.V. like symptoms. Mia has the R.S.V. wanna be virus, but all else is well. So once again, off to the pharmacy for obscene amounts of medication. Brookshire’s should give us a customer loyalty card specifically for the pharmacy. So as if this isn't enough...the very next day Deuce has a flippin' runny nose. So now, we have breathing treatments every 3 hours for Jevin, amoxicillin twice a day, and the three of them taking Pediatex every 3 hours. Like seriously, I already have a hard enough time remembering when it is time for them to eat again, or if I had changed their pamper the last time I fed them. I visualized a vicious circle of illness for who know's how long. I thought, "Watch us have to deal with this until they are 2..."
.....so please understand, I love doing the blog, I just can't always get to it as often as I would like.
Now on to the cool stuff! Yes, I did say 6 month old triplets. So right now, I am ok with saying 6th month old triplets, but I am having a little tiny bit of denial about saying 7 month old triplets...I am really ticked at father time right about now. He is stealing my babies from me! 6 months ok...7 months...I don't know. Just say it...say it out loud...there is a big difference between 6 and 7 months right!? Well, they are just doing so awesome developmentally. I am simply amazed every day. The boys are about 4 hours from sitting all by themselves. Both of them have been up on their knees and elbows rocking, so crawling is right around the corner. Mia, I caught her up on all 4's yesterday, and I got excited and scared her a tad so she belly flopped and I haven't seen her do it since. All of them do well holding their bottles. The boys need a little bit more practice to get it down. They mostly hold it with their knuckles instead of open handed. Mia and sitting? Yeah, probably not...we are convinced she will walk before she can sit. She would just rather stand up. She is also just becoming a different little baby. She does still think she is the boss of everyone, and if you don't do what she wants you to do, when she wants you to do it, she won't hesitate to let you know, but she has definitely calmed down quite a bit. She smiles more and likes it. She is more goo-goo-ga-ga'y. Whew!...She is a prefect example of why I hoped I wouldn't have 3 girls, but I wouldn't trade her for the world. They do awesome with tummy time and can entertain them selves for quite a while. They love their little (boring) toys. Jevin loves to hear himself "talk". It is cute for now, but I total picture myself telling him one day at 3 or 5 or something, "Just STOP talking, just be quite." He is also my best giggler to date. I love the baby giggle! Deuce giggles pretty well too, and Mia...not really a giggle, more like a scream. Can't wait to hear her little giggle... Deuce has found his feet, and with his obsesive thumb sucking has commenced to stretching the toe of his sock to his mouth while he sucks his thumb.
So, I think that is most of what I can remember over the last month. I will have pictures posted Sunday...good night!
