5 months... A little late (as usual!)

The boys are awesome. They are becoming so animated and quite funny. They are on a great schedule, which helps keep the chaos under control!

Here is a typical day:
7:45am - wake them up and 8 oz bottles
8:30am - get dressed and play
9:30am - fruit with baby oatmeal
10:00am - short nap (40 mins)
10:45am - playtime
11:30am - 8 oz bottles
12:30pm - naptime!
3:30pm - 8 oz bottle
4:30pm - playtime
5:30pm - veggies
6:00pm - cat nap
6:30pm - playtime
7:30pm - 8 oz bottles
8:15pm - bath time then bed!

Obviously this varies from day to day, but this is roughly what goes on each day and the boys seem to do pretty well on this schedule. For nap and bed time all we have to do is lie them in their cribs turn on their music and their twilight turtle and shut the door. Madelynn was NEVER like that! Apparently we are doing something right the second time around! And yes, they eat a TON!

We recently went to the Crayola factory and met up with a triplet family from New York. They also have a 3 year old daughter so she and Maddy had loads of fun together! It was so much fun to hang out with another mom of triplets! It is amazing the friends that I have met because of the common bond of triplets! And I'm excited for a possible outing in December that will include at least 4 families with triplets and it will likely be more! What a spectacle we will be!

I also had the pleasure of having a triplet mom's night out on Friday night with some local triplet mommies. It was so much fun and so nice to get out of the house for a few mins without children!

I will leave you all with some recent pictures! Hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving!
