Happy Valentine's Day!!!

I'm not sure what I have been doing to keep me away from updating our blog recently. Just busy raising 4 kids under 4 years old, I guess. The girls are all fighting their first "bug" of the winter. It started with Allie's nasty ear infection and has turned into 3 girls with yucky noses, yucky diapers, low grade fevers and lots of fussiness which equals LOTS OF FUN...not! However, other than this past week of not feeling well...they really are doing well. We get LOTS of smiles everyday. Olivia is our happy, content girl. She's just fine doing her own thing, sucking on her thumb. (Our 1st thumb sucker!) Norah is our talker....jabber, jabber, jabber all day long. She cat naps and when she wakes up she'll holler for attention. She's not fussy but demands someone pay attention to her. Allie is so in between Olivia and Norah's personalities but equally as sweet...probably our best cuddler.

Right around their 5 month birthday we transitioned them to their nursery and cribs. That has been a good transition. We are still sleeping in the nursery...taking shifts. We'll get to the point where Nick and I can sleep in the same bed again and start using our awesome video monitors (gifts from our great, prayerful friends The Senefeld's).

We saw their Developmental Pediatrician this week and their weights are:

Allie: 10 lbs. 10 oz.
Norah: 11 lbs. 4 oz.
Olivia: 10 lbs. 11 oz.

They will be 6 months old on Feb. 23rd which seems impossible. In just 2 more days they will be 3 months "adjusted". I feel like their behavior and activity falls somewhere in between their real and adjusted ages.

We are still on lock down until spring. I'm going nuts inside these 4 walls but it's been well worth keeping them healthy...away from H1N1, RSV and other seasonal germs. We'll get out someday...and then we'll start taking walks, going on car rides to visit family & friends...oh I get so excited just thinking about getting out of the house with 3 babies, 3 infant seats, bottles, bottles, bottles, diapers, diapers, diapers, spare clothes, burp rags, pacifiers...and of course Nick and Ryan too.

I promise to post new pictures soon!

Love, Stacie
