Big Boys

Third time ever rolling over!

Today Caleb rolled over! It had been at least two weeks since we last tried tummy time since they seem to really hate it. I was burping Caleb on his boppy while I fed one of his brothers. I noticed he was holding himself really well so I thought I'd put him in his beloved baby einstein, only this time on his tummy. I looked away for maybe a minute and when I looked again he was on his back! This proves what I already knew, they hate tummy time, so much so it took Caleb only a minute to figure out how to roll over. I don't know if they'll ever learn to crawl.

Swing Swing Swings!

The first month home the boys slept most of the day in their pack n play. The next month and a half was their boppies and bouncy chair. Now it's swings! We had two to begin with, a travel swing and a big swing (this is the much preferred swing). It started to become apparent we needed another swing when the boy that was out of the swing would not sleep very well and wake frequently. Then Thomas became a swing hog and would only sleep in the swing. "WE NEED ANOTHER SWING," I told Phil. I checked craigslist for a week and a half looking for a good deal (we are on a tight budget). I finally found one and it was the best $30 we ever spent! Although we are going through batteries like crazy, this might put us in the poor house. Swings are a must have for triplets, it's the only other thing besides a human that makes them happy for hours on end. They must be swaddled though otherwise they won't fall asleep on their own.

Wow, who knew swings would be so awesome! Now I understand why you have more than one. :)

I'm glad you guys managed to find a good deal for the swing, I'm guessing it was totally worth it since the boys seem to be sleeping soundly :) Cute matching bear hats!

Thats great! Elliot still hasn't figured out how to roll over but I hope he does soon. :)

The boys just keep getting cuter and bigger all the time! Of course they all look alike! Nice they each have a swing now to help them sleep and I hope you take that oportunity to get in a nap or two yourself. Maybe you need a swing! As always, you are in my thoughts and prayers.
Love to you all,
