The babies had their 6 month well baby visit this week. All of them are growing wonderfully both physically and developmentally. They had to get a ton of shots including their second dose of the RSV vaccine which for both Katie and Seamus was actually 2 shots. Their 6 month stats are:
As you can see, birth order is also starting to represent size order. Katie's definitely the largest and Helena is definitely the smallest. There is no more preemie growth curve, they've all officially caught up, size-wise anyway. There are still some developmental things that they're not quite there yet on. They're close though!
Today we celebrated St Nicholas Day by putting the babies Christmas shoes in the hallway last night and having St Nick fill them with some lovely treats. Things like peas and apple juice... just the kind of treats that babies like! Or is it treats that mommy's like to give babies! Either way it was too cute. We also had to take them in this morning to get their 1st dose of flu shots. They couldn't get them with the rest since they were already getting 5 other pokes. 6 is too many I guess even though I would like to have just been done with them all at once. It's almost time for lunch so I'll add some pics and then go feed some babies. The one with the three of them was from yesterday all playing in Seamus's bed (H, S, K).
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!!
