Today the triplets are 7 months old. This is just an unbelievably fun age. They are so interactive, still relatively contained and able to entertain themselves. Also, they are still very easily carried around. It is even more fun because for the first time ever, last night all 3 babies slept through the night. I used to think that sleeping through the night meant sleeping 12 hours- 8 pm to 8 am. I have adjusted my attitude and now I think sleeping through the night means 10+ hours. If I don't have to get up for a crying baby until after 6 am, it is a successful night.
They got their 4th set of Synagis shots on Thursdays so that means we had a weigh in.
Addy- 13 lbs, 6 oz
Beckett- 13 lbs, 2 oz
Eloise- 12 lbs, 9 oz
It is really hard to believe that Beckett weighs so much more than Eloise. If you look at them, she looks like a little chunk with those huge cheeks and big belly. When you pick them up she feels like this compact little ball of muscle.
Beckett feels a little more fragile and you can still feel his ribs but he is so much longer than her. He has these crazy long legs that he kicks like a madman in the bathtub. In fact, this kids kicks non-stop. This morning I was making their bottles and all three were on the playroom floor and all of the sudden I heard all of this screaming from Addy. When I investigated I found Addy had moved next to Beckett's legs and he was kicking the snot out of her. Well, that's what she thought anyway.
They made up later.
On their birthday the girls wore their Paris dresses from Grandma so we finished off the day reading what we are going to see when we go to Paris with Grandma- someday.
The girls are going to Paris while Beckett and Rich head to the south to watch the mountain stages of the Tour de France- again, someday. They were picking out bikes today in anticipation.
Good night sweet babies. Happy Birthday.
(Beckett now sleeps in a velour frog sleeper with claw feet)
