I dressed the girls in their first NEWBORN sizes! Thanks Christina for the super cute outfits.
We had wonderful visitors from Mt. Pleasant. Katie and Keres Fite came over that morning and brought their precious babies, Ava and George. I'm pretty sure Ava thinks Jessy is a doll, none the less she knows how to keep a pacifier in a babies mouth.

Mom and Rick came to help Saturday night while Jack and I went to eat and then Sunday morning I went to church. Everyone at church can't wait to meet them, and we can't wait to bring them!!
I was by myself this week quite a few times, by choice. I just wanted to see how it would work, how I would do and if I would still be sane. Let's just say by the end of the week, the tears started and it was pretty tiring. I really do try to remind myself of the miracles they are, which helps re-focus and get it together.
Here is how I set up shop when I feed them alone. Lots of patience, and everyone just has to wait their turn!

First, Dr. Romberg....probably the most precious Doctor I know. She is so caring, thoughtful and prayerful for her patients. She made the best decisions during my pregnancy and the health of me and the triplets is because of her. I am so grateful the Lord placed her in our path. My joke with Dr. Romberg is that she has a secret helicopter to get all the places she needs to go. She is a single mother of 2, offices at Mesquite and Baylor Dallas and many days goes both places...I have NO clue how she does all the things she does so calmly and with ease. She is pretty awesome! Thank you Dr. Romberg!
And here is Miss. Heather....Dr. Romberg's precious nurse. She was always so helpful and answered my million phone messages and questions about my pregnancy. I know she must play an important part in keeping Dr. Romberg organized and in check every day with all of her patients. Thank you Heather!
Jack and I got to have our date night on Friday, thank to Robin and Mike Skahan. We at on the deck of Fish Camp in Royse City....very yummy. This weekend we were quite the family of 5, as Jack and I decided to not have help this weekend. Alone time was needed and just time to see if we could do it. Well....we did, however Saturday was much better than Friday. The babies were so fussy Friday night and did not sleep well at all. At one point I actually slept with a boppy pillow on the floor in the nursery with Wyatt and Abigail, because they would not stop crying..and it was easier to stay in the room than to go back and forth. Saturday went much smoother and the night feedings much better. Thank goodness!
Our Sunday has been very relaxed and laid back and tonight Mimi is here to help. And I sit here and type Mimi is having a full conversation with Jessy Grace. Probably the sweetest thing ever.

My daily routine is pretty much stays the same until I am feeding or changing a baby, then it might get interesting...but for the most part this is the routine.
Cuddle for a minute
Lay back down
Get another baby....if there are only 2 people, it's the 3rd one's turn
Repeat of above
Wash bottles out
Shower (if I don't get a shower by about noon, there is no hope)
Answer email, phone messages...squeeze in a little Mary Kay
Sterilize bottles 2 times a day
Express milk 8 times a day
Restock diapers and wipes
Repeat about 8 times and that is a 24 hour period
Good times! I thought before when I had 2 jobs I was busy...MAN this is enough for 3 people to handle for sure. When we have 3 sets of hands it is a party and feedings just go by quickly...so thank you to all my family and friends who have offered their hands.
One of our highlights for the week was taking pictures with a photographer. Our friends Ken and Cindy Sheppa had the triplets over for their newborn pictures and it was so much fun. Lots of work let me tell you to get three to cooperate, but the results so far are great. We are getting together one more time to finish, but here are just a few he sent after the session. THANK YOU KEN!!!
The babies are getting bigger and bigger each week. I weighed them today, and here are their stats:
Abigail - 6 pounds 2 ounces
This last week we also switched to a 3 1/2 hour schedule with the hopes of being on a 4 hour by June, giving me a little more time during the day to work. So far the 3 1/2 is working well and we will probably stay with this for another week or so to make sure the babies have it down.
I am breaking out from the routine tomorrow, Saturday to grocery shop, head to Babies R Us, Northpark and who else knows were I will end up! Jack and Dad will be here with the babes....they can handle it!

On Wednesday Aunt Sally came to help overnight and she brought her postal scale ;) We were able to weigh the babies and here are their 4 week old stats. I'm sure the triplets are going to hate it when they see these pictures, later in life, but I'm sure they will get over it!
Jessy Grace 5 pounds 4 ounces
I love this picture of Wyatt!!!! That lip is priceless!!

Kelly and Wyatt took a nap!Lezlee and her awesome kids, Maddie and Lawton came over after the 6 pm feeding to watch the babies, and we were all able to go to a new restaurant called Fish Camp. It was a great night to sit outside and eat dinner....a great outing!
The babies are really starting to show their personalities. Jessy Grace is getting a little used to laying on daddy's chest and being held by her Grammy. She has realized she has quite the scream and every once in a while will belt one out. However, she is as sweet as she can be, I mean look at this!
Then there is Abigail. She makes this face a lot! Her little lips pucker up and she stretches real big. She looks like she is saying "talk to the hand!" She is a chatter box and has done a good job teaching her brother and sister her language. She makes a lot of "racket" as Mimi calls it, and really that is exactly what it is....she just likes to hear herself talk. However, not so much a crier, just a grunter and talker...such a good girl!
Then Mr. Wyatt. Now he is a good little man. A great eater and a great burper. He is getting really big and starting to get cute little baby fat rolls on his legs. He loves to listen to his rain forest noises in the nursery, and really likes watching his mobile Nanny got him. He is first to finish his food and is just ok laying in his crib until he falls asleep. Most of the time he has to listen to the girls and their jibber jabber, but from time to time he will join in. This picture explains it all.
