What a week....

I hate that it has been a week since my last update, however....I think I have somewhat of an excuse. ;) If it is any consolation, I have been working on this post for a good 4 days! Last week, was a great week for our family as the babies turned a month old Friday, and we have continued to be blessed with healthy babies, help from family, friends and Church and meals to assist in our night routine. Last week went by really fast, I'm not sure how it got away.

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!

Abigail 5 pounds 9 ounces
Wyatt 6 pounds 6 ounces
Jessy Grace 5 pounds 4 ounces
They are gaining weight which is great! Jessy Grace has had a stuffy nose this week so we have set up a humidifier in the nursery and I have given her saline drops in her little nostrils. I also get some sick satisfaction getting buggies out of the babies noses with this handy device, as they all seem to get stuffy. When we were at the pediatrician last, he did say that their little nasal cavities were so small, so that is part of the reason for their stuffiness.

On Friday the babies were a month old. Here are their 1 month old pictures, armature style:
This last picture of her explains it all! Abigail loves to talk. She keeps her eyes open for quite a while after she eats and just looks all around her bed and the room. She is a great eater, however like her sister she is pretty slow. She loves watching her mobile and also enjoys her swing. She moves her legs and arms a lot and my bet is will be the first to try to walk.
Wyatt is cool, calm and collected, you see he is bored here for sure! He is totally content eating, burping, being swaddled and laying back down. He does like the bouncy chair and really likes watching his mobile too. He loves to eat and always burps. His little cheeks are great for kisses and he is such a cuddle bug.
Her poses crack me up!!! Jessy Grace is a daddy's girl. She loves laying on daddy's chest at night after she eats and falls right asleep. She is a super slow eater, but she does eat it all! She likes swinging too and loves when you talk to her. She has a high pitched scream which can be hard to listen too and she is super cuddly as well. Her dad also loves when she wears the color yellow, so she tries to wear it as often as she can.

Here is the trio attempt. Hilarious to actually watch in person. Poor Wyatt is like "MOM get me out of here!!" We also took the picture right before feeding time. Not the best idea, they started sucking on each others arms!
I love this picture of Wyatt!!!! That lip is priceless!!

Can I just you how fun it is to dress the girls! I get so excited when they need an outfit change, and can't wait until they get big enough to wear their newborn clothes. The matching summer outfits they have are precious! I wanted all the babies to somewhat match, and the girls to have a hair piece that matched too, so the white onsie and Wyatt with blue striped shorts, the girls with baby blue headbands was as good as I could get.

I had a chance to get out last and see some of my friends in the city and Chamber. Jack and I attended the Royse City networking breakfast on Wednesday morning while Mom and Rick stayed with the babies and it was awesome to see the friends of the city who prayed and fed us over the bed rest period. I was a proud Mom with my pictures that is for sure. I also went to La Rue Chic this week in town and treated myself to some super cute clothes...and jeans that fit. I have to say I have lost a lot of weight, but who wants to wear maternity jeans when they wore maternity clothes for 8 months! Candice the owner picked out some fun outfits for me, thanks girl!
