So I've started thinking about our next stroller options, and I've been eye-ing this pseudo triplet stroller where two sit and one stands. The advantage is that it's the size of a regular double stroller but it accommodates three. I figure when they are bigger I should be able to convince one of them to ride standing. Then it occurred to me that by then they will have outgrown their real triplet stroller, I can't stand the thought of it even though we have a good year before that happens. Even if I wanted to I could never have triplets again or a sweet little preemie to overprotect. I even get a little jealous of expectant M.O.M.'s. It's such a worthwhile exciting adventure and such a unique experience that few ever get to live through. I didn't know it was possible to miss something before it's even over.
On the other hand I do get excited that the boys are learning new things and developing as they should. I just wish it took a little longer.
The boys all free-stand and they can do it without using anything to pull themselves up. They are soooooo close to taking that first step. I just haven't been able to coax them to try it, although Caleb took a mini step were he repositioned one of his legs so he could balance better. I won't count it since he wasn't trying to move forward. Caleb has always had the lead on mobility, he was the first to roll over at a tender 3mo old, so my bets are all on him to be the first to walk.
Sometimes I think the boys have lousy appetites but I don't worry about it since they poop so dang much! I get 150 cloth diapers delivered every week but in reality we use about 120 diapers a week and since the cost is the same we've kept the same order. Well recently on two separate occasions we've actually run out of diapers! Here are some truths:
-There are about 6-9 poopy diapers per day
-Everyone mostly poops in the morning or early afternoon
-Caleb can have a poopy diaper at anytime of the day, that boy can poop!
-Their poop is getting really really smelly : (
Seriously though, they only eat healthy stuff, mostly fruits and vegetables, yogurt, and a little bit of poultry.
