Update on Mama's cooking

Okay, Okay, Okay. we tried the homemade chicken again- this time pureeing it with pasta and sweet potatoes. They ate it up! Yum, Yum. My pride restored.

We could just move

Mom and Dad are having some growing pains... The babies are growing and it causes us great pain! Just kidding. It's difficult to adjust to new schedules etc. We had to do away with the changing table. It was just too dangerous to have them on it! They want to flip over and fly off...

We have tried everything except barbed wire to keep the babies off the hearth. We also moved the feeding table into the hall. It's much easier to clean avacado off the hardwoods than it is off of carpet. We can also roll the table out onto the deck once it warms up. Then we can just hose the babies off with the garden hose. (ha!)

Don't get me's a lot of fun...

Here's life a picture of life at the Norwood house.
Our house looks like Baby Vegas, Baby

Three times the love

What a great day for love! The babies suprised their Dad this morning with a Valentine message. (see picture).

Mama's home cooking I decided to make some homemade baby food. It's much cheaper than buying the little packs. In my first attempt I made chicken. I was so proud to be able to provide my young 'uns with some wholesome homemade food. They got their first batch last night and couldn't get it out of their mouths fast enough. John got the entire thing on tape...It was quite funny. Ben even threw up it was so bad. I don't think I pureed it enough and the texture was just too much. I was a bit heartbroken...but it made for a good memory. I guess I can enjoy them not liking my food now- soon they will be able to TELL me how bad it is! ha!

Will has an ear 10 days of antibiotics for him. I have a feeling Ben does as well.
Our first Valentine's Day tomorrow!

9 Months later...

How long does it take to get something accomplished with triplets? Try 9 months. I have been working on this blog FOREVER and I am finally posting. I had a blog in grad school and thought it would be a great way to record the first year of our babies' I guess we have a lot of catching up to do.
Nine months...whew! Life at our house will never be the same. Last weekend Dad put up the gates for us...within 20 min. there was a jail break, so John had to put in some extra reinforcements.

The babies are growing and changing daily! It's quite an amazing fete! Ben and Isabella are crawling- kind of... It's a work in process. The little boogers are all over the house. We can't keep them in one place. They are also sitting up in their cribs and working on standing. Will is working on something new each day. He wants to crawl- but hasn't yet.
All babies have 4 teeth right now.

We've come a long way from 24 bottles a day. we are now down to 9 bottles a day and lots of food. Ben is able to feed himself the bottle and Isabella is almost there. One day he just grabbed the bottle put it in his mouth and that was that. It was so hard for me to let go - but it's just part of life. They are eating all kinds of new foods and trying to use a sippy cup. They love finger foods and toast. Peas and cut up carrots are a new favorite for snacking.

I love them a little more each day- if that is possible. I don't think I could have imagined how wonderful it is to be a mom. It's also so amazing to see John with the babies. There is so much love and happiness in our home. I couldn't imagine that life could be this good. We are so blessed.
