Finally Pushing Up with confidence!

Cate, Eve and Jonah demonstrating their newly mastered skill of Pushing Up! (2/10/2008)




Quick catch up...from

February 8, 2008 - The Triplets' second trip to Sea World
Another good day at Shamu's Happy Harbor. We saw the Shamu Show, the Blue Horizon Dolphin Show, some seals and sea lions. Eating prunes during the Dolphin Show was an adventure, but we came through with flying colors (mostly a deep purple).

December 20 through January 1...or is that January 14? - Christmas Vacation
For our fourth ridiculous trip with three infants, we set off for Ohio (again) and arrived in Belpre on December 21. So, Cate, Eve and Jonah got to spend their first Christmas and New Years with Grandma and Grandad Rogers. Saturday, January 5th marked the first time one of the babies rolled from back to front. Eve made this amazing move and she hasn't stayed on her back since. Cate followed suit on January 8th, but she is more content to be on her back than Eve. We were supposed to be home on January 1st, but the babies had other plans. Jonah got sick with bronchitis, then Eve got sick with bronchitis, then Eve ended up in the ER and was diagnosed with RSV. The next day, Jonah and Cate received the same diagnosis and we were advised to not travel for at least a week from that point. So, a January 1st return ended up being a January 14th return, but on the upside, we did make it home safe and the babies are fully recovered.

November 27, 2007 - Four Month Check Up
Finally, some measurement other than the circumference of Jonah's head made it to the "normal range." Here is a quick rundown of the measurements of note.

CATE - 4 months 6 days
Weight - 12 pounds 11 ounces
Length - 24 inches
Head Circumference - 16 inches

EVE - 4 months 6 days
Weight - 11 pounds 12 ounces
Length - 24 inches
Head Circumference - 15 3/4 inches

JONAH - 4 months 6 days
Weight - 14 pounds 7 ounces
Length - 24 1/2 inches
Head Circumference - 16 1/2 inches

November 15 through November 26, 2007 - Thanksgiving Vacation
For our third ridiculous trip with three infants, we set off for Michigan (again) and arrived in Plymouth three days later. We had a blast with family and the Triplets enjoyed all of the extra attention. They got to spend time with Aunt Faith, Uncle Andrew and Aunt Kristin, Conor, Collin, Aidan and Seamus (the cat). With bellies full of turkey, just prior to our departure, Eve decided to be the first to roll over (from front to back). We didn't have the camera handy so, you'll just have to take our word for it.

November 4, 2007 - The Triplets' first trip to Sea World
Sunday morning, spur of the moment, we decided we would accompany our friends Jon and Kris (and Luke and Kylie) to Sea World. A mad dash in the form of 45 minutes of frantic preparation ensued and out the door we went. Despite the hectic beginning, we had a great day (only Cate and Jonah decided to fuss for 15 minutes each).

September 24 through October 14, 2007 - The Triplets' first Vacation
So, with each child freshly immunized, we all plopped down into our respective seats in the van and headed north. The traveling went really well (except for the last thirty minutes before each stop). Regardless of our destination (Rest Area, Grand-dad and Grandma's House, Aunt Faith's) the locale was greeted with three screaming children. We made it to Belpre, OH on the 25th of September, to Plymouth, MI on the 30th of September and back to Belpre on the 5th of October. It wasn't exactly a whirlwind tour, but it was a full three weeks.

September 15, 2007 - The Triplets' first day at Church
We didn't know what to expect, so we stayed with Grandpa and Grandma Camenga in South Daytona, FL on Friday the 14th of September just to make sure we would make to church on time in the morning. The night was a little rough, but we managed to make it through and we made it to church a little late. The triplets ate as soon as we got there and then were in and out of sleep for the rest of the time. The people at church were ecstatic to see "all the babies" but were quite timid at the same time (that timidity soon wore off). It was a good day, but we didn't make it back to church in Daytona until October 20th.
