32 months and something
When I was pregnant with the triplets, I would look for triplet blogs. I found some great ones, but at some point, you've read all the archives and there's no new material. Because the person writing the blog has triplets. I keep meaning to start this up again. For a while, I thought I would write a post officially signing off. But, I also intended to start writing stuff down in my journal. And it hasn't happened. Not even once. So, I'm going to try to do this again (I hope). Just once a month. Just to not lose so many memories.



Britta is talking a lot and no longer takes her nap. She can open our child-proof drawers and cabinets (and last month she got out a pair of scissors and cut off her bangs!). She can get out of her crib, but after a few nights of putting her back in (and putting her back in and putting her back in) she will now stay in her crib at night. In the morning she gets out on her own and comes into our room. She's very stubborn and independent and amazing.



Drake isn't talking much. In fact, he's talking less than he was a few months ago. So, we're trying to give him more one-on-one time and work with him on it more. His favorite thing to do is stand on his head. In his crib, on a wall, on the couch, by the fireplace. He's still the one that wants me the most, but he's happier and more mild these days. If he likes something, he'll put it in his crib. He gets quite a collection going some days.



Jack is still smilin' Jack.He's happy and sweet and starting to talk more and more. When we are out in public he can get kind of crazy. Loud and running all over the place and getting into everything. His diet was about 75% milk and I was worried about that. One day he just stopped drinking milk and now I worry about that. He's the biggest, but he'll let the other two push him around. He's very sweet and has an amazing laugh.
