12 Month Check Up

The triplets had a great report at their 1 year check up! Other than way too many shots, they did great and as always loved playing on the paper. Each baby is on the “chart” and they are right on track developmentally as well as eating great. I will be taking them off the bottle this week and interested in how all that will go. They are drinking from their sippy cups well, but they seem to still like us to hold them. How in the world did that happen with three? I have no idea!?! However, all in all…we had had a successful and healthy first year! Praise God. Here was the best picture I could get ;)

Here are everyone’s stats and 12 month picture.
18 pounds 3 ounces
28.5 inches long

Abigail has started to take a few steps and is very interested in learning how to walk. She and her brother are the happiest babies I know. She is quite the toy thief tho, so watch out...she will get whatever you steal from her. She loves fruit especially cantaloupe and watermelon and even though she doesn't have hear as many teeth as her brother and sister, she can out eat them all!
She is such the little dancing doll too, her shoulders and feet are almost constantly moving.

21 pounds 5 ounces
29 inches long

Little man, you can't help but smile when he smiles! He is content most all the time and just loves to smile! He doesn't have much of a chance right now with the girls ganging up on him, but he doesn't mind all that much...he just finds something else to play with. He is all about some standing, but he hasn't made it to taking steps just yet...but it won't be long. Wyatt loves to eat as well, really anything....he can put away some broccoli and loves macaroni and cheese. He has 8 teeth and when he is not woken up by his sisters, he is a great sleeper.

Jessy Grace
18 pounds 11 ounces
28 inches long

Jessy Grace steals so many people's hearts it's not even funny. She has her dad so wrapped around her finger and he can't even think straight when she is in the room. Jessy will be walking any day....I mean minute, she is that close!! She is not scared to try and wants to figure it out, and I mean quick. It is so funny to me that she was the last one out of the womb, quiet and all to herself, but man Baby C was just waiting to show everyone who was boss. And that, she does. Jessy has 8 teeth also, but is more of a pickier eater than her brother and sister. She does take care of graham crackers with no problem at all, and if you add peanut butter to the cracker you will hear smacking for sure! Jessy is working hard to grow out of her naps, but I have to remind her who is in charge and that 2 naps a day are not an option for her not to take. Jessy has a smile that will melt your heart and makes some of the funniest faces.

We had a great time taking pictures with Elizabeth Stanley. Elizabeth and I met through facebook and she offered to take pictures of the babies if they could model some of the clothes and tutus she makes. Of course I was all about it, and was so grateful for her patience and help during the session. We met at a park in Rockwall and Mimi was there to help, and Jack met us there half way through the session. The babies were too interested in all the kids playing on the playground so it was super hard to get smiles from anyone! Abigail, the smiling queen didn’t even give a smirk. Oh well, they still turned out great I think, here are a few of my favorites.

Hi Amanda! I don't know if you remember me or not, but we were both KD's at A&M :) My name then was Wendy Evans... now it's Wendy Cook. Anyways, I came across your blog and have been following your amazing journey for a while now. You are truly blessed! If you don't mind, would you please send me your email address so that I could email you? There are some things I'd like to ask (if you're okay with it), and then share as well... but not so much to the public :) Thanks!
