The last week of school is upon us again! Pat’s last day was actually this past Friday so he’s now home with the kids and Grandpa gets to start his summer vacation. Good thing because he’s packing the camper so we can join them on vacation up in Indian River. I however work until Thursday and then we pack to go up north for almost a week. Since the big 2nd birthday party we’ve been running around like crazy people. We had a fun sleep-over with Clay and Drew. We still need to go through all of the pictures of the party and get them printed out so we can update their scrap books. That’s my goal of the day today. The trio had their 2 year appointments this past week. Katie is now 30 lbs and 34 inches, Seamus is 25 lbs and cheated by standing on his tippy toes to measure 34 inches. Really he’s more like 33 inches, nice try buddy! Helena is 23lbs and 32.5 inches. They all have a pretty nasty cold now too thanks to our visit to the pediatricians office. The scratchy feeling in my throat had better pass quickly! Seamus had what we hope is his final recheck for his head down at Children’s Hospital on Friday. He had to have x-rays done and then we waited about 3 hours to see the doctor with about 150 other babies and toddlers. No, this is NOT an exaggeration! He was very good! The doctor still needs to review the x-rays but if they come back okay then he’s good to go. The concern is that he still has a bit of narrowing in the back of his head and they just want to make sure that the skull sutures have not prematurely fused. After the appointment on Friday we had a surprise bbq to celebrate Grandma Huddas’s retirement. After too many years to count of teaching, my mom has decided to retire and start her second career of babysitting grand kids. I know Drew is looking forward to it for sure! Saturday we went to Clay’s 5th birthday party. It was super hot but everyone had a good time thanks to the giant bounce house water slide. Pat and the kids were soaked and exhausted by the time we got home which tells you how much fun they had. We even got to go on a hayride to see some cows behind an antique John Deere tractor thanks to Uncle James. Clay’s actual birthday was yesterday along with Uncle Ed’s so Happy Birthday guys! My car door broke somehow while we were at the party so we also had to take it in yesterday to get it fixed. Thank goodness they could do it right away. We weren’t too fond of the idea of Pat being home without a car or having to get the trio up to drive me to work this morning. On Sunday we went and visited Grandma and Grandpa Murphy to celebrate Father’s day with them early since we’ll be up north. Well, 1st hour exams are about to end which means I need to actually get to work. Happy early Father’s to everyone!
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!!
