Happy Belated Father's Day and More

Happy Belated Father's Day to all the Daddy's out there especially the new Daddy in our family! Even though our babies are not home yet Steven has already proved to be a great dad. He loves spending time with the babies and is usually changing diapers, feeding, or just holding one of the babies. When we found out we were having triplets I had to keep telling myself that God would not give us more than we could handle and let me tell you I would not be able to do it without Steven. I'm sure its difficult for two people to manage with one newborn but with three it is definitely a team effort! Addison, Bryce and Collin are in love with their Daddy and so am I, thanks for being a great Dad!

Over the weekend a lot has happened at the hospital. Addison, Bryce and Collin are eating all 8 feedings from a bottle. Addison is still receiving OT services because she holds her breath when she eats. She is getting better and will hopefully grow out of it soon. Bryce was moved to a crib Sunday so he is one step closer to going home. The doctors think he could possibly come home in a week just depending on how the week goes. Steven and I are scheduled to take CPR and the car seat test Thursday and Friday which is necessary before they go home. Collin is growing fast, he is usually the one that gains the most weight but is still catching up to the other two. He is on manually temperature control in his isolette and doing good at maintaining his own temperature. As soon as Addison and Collin can gain enough weight and maintain their temperature they can be moved to a crib and be home shortly after Bryce.
