First Kick at 14 weeks
So we started stockpiling baby supplies and we are already running out of room! We bought a bunch of storage caboodles from Ikea. A gently used crib from craigslits (a Baby Italia, real nice, solid wood, supper heavy). A really nice co-worker of Phil's gave us a barely used car seat, a bumbo (kids always look tortured in these things but everyone swears by them so I'll give it a try), and a little bouncy chair-thanks Yosa!. Also, we drove up to Snohomish, Washington (near Seattle) this weekend to pick up a used triplet stroller that Sue and Ed (Phil's parents) bought for us. We got a great deal because brand new triplet strollers cost about $1,000-1,500! I'd carry all three of them on my back before paying that much for something you would only use for 2years.
Also, last wednesday (May 12th) baby C started kicking me during prayer at meeting. It felt like someone was gently flicking me. It lasted a good 20 seconds and it hasn't happened since. It's was really cute but what I've read from other supermoms (moms of super twins) is that it gets old fast, makes sense, I guess 12 appendages (6 arms and 6 legs) can do a lot of damage.
