Lots of family

We went tailgating again this weekend and got to spend time with a lot of family some of which we haven't seen in a long time. It was really good to see everyone and introduce them to our little ones. I didn't get pictures of everyone but here are the few I did get.
Cousins Colton and Bryce

Morgan and Addison

Aunt Lindsey and Addison

Travis and Addison

We also got to see a few Red Raider Fans! My cousin Alicia and her boyfriend were in Houston for the game and stopped by to meet the babies on their way home.

This weekend we tried cereal for the first time. We feed them by spoon which was fun and not as messy as we thought it would be. Bryce was a natural, he would take a bite and cry until you gave him another bite. Addison was slow at first but quickly caught on. Collin did okay but would need his bottle to wash it down between bites. It does take a little longer to do a feeding with the cereal so we plan to start putting the cereal in their bottles now that we know they can handle the cereal.

Collin's Physical Therapy

With multiples the risk of the babies having problems is obviously greater than with a singleton baby. With triplets we have been very blessed that our babies have been so healthy since birth. The one and only thing that we are dealing with is Collin has low muscle tone in his neck and shoulders, it is not bad and he barely qualified for physical therapy services. He has only had a few sessions with his physical therapist and he is doing very well. He is holding his head up better and we are working on getting him to turn his head to the left which he does not like to do. His physical therapist comes to our house to work with him which is very convenient for us. Below are a few pictures of Collin doing his exercises.

My Boys

Yesterday was the first day of NFL Sunday which is like a holiday in our house, at least in my husband mind. The day was made even better because Direct TV had the NFL package on for free. For those of you that do not know what the NFL package is you can get every NFL game there is. So of course we didn't miss a game yesterday and at one point we had 8 games on at the same time. Now my husband is spoiled and wanting the NFL package but unless we win the lottery we will not be spending the $300 or $400, that could buy a lot of diapers.

3 months old and double trouble

Our babies are another month older and growing so much. Bryce is becoming a workout at 13lbs. and Addison and Collin are competing at 10lbs.

Steven and I went to high school with Ryan and Cheri. Steven played baseball with Ryan and I introduced this couple and set them up on their first date. So we go way back with the Janner's and we have recently been reunited because we both have triplets. We have been very fortunate that the Janner's share their clothes and many other hand me downs with us. Monday the triplets got to meet each other for the first time. Our babies slept through it and the Janner boys were not sure what to think of the babies. I'm sure the six of them will have many opportunities to get to know one another.

Football, Football, Football

This last week I attempted to be creative and made these little onesies and burp clothes for the babies. I'm not totally happy with how they turned out but they still look cute in them.

Friday my Grandma and Grandpa Wilde and Aunt Jeanie came to town to meet the babies. The babies were all a little fussy so they got to see them in action!

Saturday we took the babies to their first A&M tailgating party. My Mom and Dad bring their motor home to College Station and tailgate before and after the games. We got there about lunch time and stayed until everyone left for the game. The babies did so good we may be able to attempt this again. We got a chance to see Aunt Lindsey and her friends and some of my cousins I haven't seen in a while.

And Sunday we will be getting in a little more football when we go with daddy to his fantasy football draft. I wanted to make some little onesies with his team name, Triple Option, for the babies to be his little mascots but I ran out of time so I will have to get to that some other time. As you can tell we are a little excited about the start of football season and there will be a lot of football watching going on in our house in the near future.

Thank You

I feel bad that I have a long list of thank you notes to write, some for gifts that we received several weeks ago, and I haven't worked on them. Well I keep thinking I will take a weekend or some time when we have nothing going on and I will write all of them. I finally came to the conclusion that I will never have that kind of time so I've started to work on them slowly but surely. We truly appreciate every gift we have been given and we feel very blessed to have such nice family and friends. I apologize now for some of my sloppy hand writing and I hope there are no spelling or grammar errors but many of these were written while holding a fussy baby or in the middle of getting bottles together so there are sure to be some mistakes!
