I found this poem on-line and just loved it!!

There's three to wash, three to dry.
There's three who argue and three who cry.
One's in the mud having a ball,
One stands on the chair, waiting to fall.
The other holds a crayon, marking a wall.
Some days seem endless, my patience grows thin.
Why was I chosen to be a mother of triplets?
The answer comes clear at the end of the day,
As I tuck them in bed, and to myself I say
There's three to kiss and three to hug
And best of all, three to love!

New Ultrasound Pictures

We another ultrasound on Friday. Everything still looks good. Mommy lost 8 lbs. :( Babies doubled again! :) They are now about 2.5"-3.0" long, about the size of limes. Baby A is lower left, Baby B is lower middle right, and Baby C is upper middle. This ultrasound was so much fun because the babies have reflexes now so we got to see them moving all around. Baby A looked like he was boxing, Baby B was not too active, and Baby C had the hiccups. I think next time we will bring a video camera and record it. It really is amazing. Here are the pictures. The ultrasound tech spent about 10 minutes trying to get a picture with all 3 of them. She got one with all three of their heads, but you really have to use your imagination to see them! Soon to come, another baby belly picture. Its really starting to show now!!

Baby A

Baby B

Baby C

All 3

Extreme Makeover Fish Edition

As some of you know when Tom and JO and the girls left for Nebraska they gave Jeff and I the honor of taking of their Beta fish. One was Presto (he has sense gone "to the deep blue sea") and the other is vanish. Vanish has gone from a very very small bowl, to a somewhat bigger bow. We finally realized that Vanish is going to be with us for a while so we got him a new home. It is a big tank with plants and rocks. We also got him a roommate, a sucker fish we call Mac the Maid. I have been promising Bekah I would post the picture, so here it!

New Baby Ultrasound Pictures

Here the new ultrasound pictures from our last appt. You can see Baby B's little legs! And I swear Baby A is sucking his thumb. The ultrasound tech said it was my picture and if thats what I saw then so be it! LOL Baby C is just too far in the back to get a good picture, poor little guy (or girl). He is a little smaller than the other to, so I told Baby A and Baby B they need to share the nutrients with their sibling!!

Big Beautiful Belly Picture

OK, so I personally do not find this belly picture beautiful at all!! However after a lengthy debate with my husband he has insisted we take a picture each month! The belly is ALREADY popping out there. We had another ultrasound on Friday and everything still looks good. The babies have doubled is size the little piggies!!! I have actually lost 5 lbs although you would never know it! Just remember the camera add 10 lbs. . . per baby!!! LOL

The Family Reactions To The Big News

The family reactions to the pregnancy news was so much fun!! We told Jeff's family first as they are local and my family is not. OK, well actually we told Rob first!!! But that was on accident, and he did a great job keeping it a secret from Chrissie!! Jeff's family were all just thrilled with the news. Cousin Charlotte jumped up down about 10 times then cried. That was pretty much the standard reaction from everyone. Then I got to tell my NY family (aka Jess, Chrissie, Momma Winslow, and the "women's retreat gang") the news at Chrissie's ladies luncheon. That was a blast! The place exploded with cheers and tears. Then finally, the moment I had been waiting for, to be able to tell my "Nebraska Family". My husband being a very talented and creative man had a brilliant idea to take photos of everything in Glens Falls that has changed sense everyone was here last. He sent the photos to a place called Shutterfly then he designed a book that had captions to all the pictures. The last two pages were the ultrasound picture and then the news that we were having triplets. I have videos of the reactions when I told my mom, Tom and Jo, and the girls. (Dave unfortunately was not their =c( but we did get to tell him over the phone). Then I have another video of when I told my dad and Mari. Both vidoes are about 4 minutes long but so worth the wait. I will never forget their reactions. It really couldn't have gone anymore perfect!! I will cherish these videos forever. I think we may send these into America Funniest Home Videos. I think we could $10,000

Jeff And I Are Expecting. . .And Expecting. . .And Expecting!!!

I am so happy to share with our family and friends that Jeff and I are expecting. . . TRIPLETS! Yes I know, OH MY GOSH!!!! Jeff and I started to see a fertility specialist in Albany back in September. His name is Dr. Henriques and his office was wonderful! After a few fertility shots and an insemination, we have 3 babies! I am 10 weeks along and so far everything looks great. All the heart beats look good (expect my husbands when they told him there was 3!!! LOL). We should hopefully know in a couple weeks what we are having. So, to everyone that prayed for Jeff and I to get pregnant thank you from the bottom of my heart. . . you can stop now!!! LOL As far as how am I feeling, surprisingly wonderful!!! I am not having a lot of morning sickness. I get a little nauseous now and again. Sometimes in the morning I have these little gagging fits. I am not a graceful "gagger", so it is somewhat appalling. My husband calls me Lurch when I start those little fits! I am also rediculously tired, bedtime is usually 8:00!! Below is our first ultrasound picture that shows all 3 babies. Baby C was hiding during the first ultrasound, thats going to be our problem child!!! LOL Just kidding. Thanks again for all the prayers!!
