The last few days have been pretty eventful around the Murphy household. I went to the doctor on Thursday and am finally cleared to go back to work for the start of the new school year. I've been off since the end of February so this will be quite an adjustment for me. Kind of looking forward to getting back into that routine though. We still don't have a contract or even a calendar so who knows when that day will actually come, end of August most likely. On Friday the babies went to have their first "real" pictures taken at JCPenny's portrait studio. They did pretty well considering with the 3 of them the whole process took about 2 hours. They had individuals taken, a group shoot, and then some family shots done. Pat ended up doing laps around the building with the stroller while I looked at the shots and ordered our package. I'm happy we did it but am in no hurry to repeat that process anytime soon. We did learn one this though, it's definitely a 2 person job. There's no way only one of us could take them to get something like this done and actually keep a bit of sanity. Today's had a bit of a rocky start, Seamus woke up for the second morning in a row shooting formula out of his nose. Both he and Katie actually did it yesterday morning at exactly the same time. Now that's fun!! Just try to imagine that image for a moment. Something out of the Exorcist maybe... Helena's the one who's on medication for acid reflux and has to have cereal in her bottle to keep her food down but now it's looking like since they were all preemies that the other 2 might end up on medication at some point too if it gets any worse. The picture of Pat and Seamus is what occurs after a morning like this one. The other picture is the 3 of them from the other day, all hanging out together on the pea boppy. Katie's the one in blue, Helena in stripes, and of course Seamus is "handsome"!
Pat and I have been married since October of 2004. After 2 years of dealing with infertility issues we found out in October of 2007 that we were pregnant. It wasn't too long afterward that we found out we were expecting triplets. As of May 29, 2008 we are the proud parents of triplets! 2 girls and a boy!!
