oh, and a few last pics:-)

Little did I know

So, little did I know that when I wrote that last entry, it would be my last for months and months! I am sorry about that! I would have tried to write something more meaningful and goodbye-like. That being said, if there are any readers still out there, I am guessing that this may be my last post or next to last or something like that. Life has gotten too crazy. It literally went nuts. I have no time to go potty, let alone post and the little time I do get onthe computer, I am too busy trying to check out how everyone else is doing! So, things here are wonderful. We've moved to a bigger house, love it, have 3 absolutely beautiful girls. Teagan is doing wonderfully and really loves and cuddles her little sisters a lot. Hannah is laid back, mellow and unwilling to try to learn to crawl, though she is very talkative, and Seane is my little monster...crawling and attacking everything without reserve, she is really something to marvel at. It is wonderful having 3 completely different personalities, all wonderful in their own way. I can't even begin to say how blessed I am. Though I am exhausted, still breastfeeding, running around after all three of them all day, life has never been better. Brett and I need some alone time at some point, but for now, we find it when we put the girls to bed early and collapse on the couch:-)

Thank you all for being such great friends and supporters. I will continue to try to check in with you all on your journeys. Hugs!

I said I'd put up some pics, so I did. However, I realized when I got down here that the pics on this computer are all pretty old...mostly from the first month they were here...so I have to download a bunch from my camera and phone...but, in the meantime, here are some highlights from the first month or so they were with us...

My triplets: Okay, the middle one is bigger, but, well...aren't they cute all dressed alike?

Frazzled mommy! I can't believe I was even wearing my glasses! I never do that!

Loving on the puppy!

In case you were wondernig, this picture is totally typical...Hannah is fine, mellow, Seane is screaming and annoyed and Teagan just looks like she is putting up with it all because she has to. My three girls are all incredibly different in looks and attitude, so far. Its amazing.

Out of the loop

So, I've been MIA, not only because I am incredibly busy lately, but also because of those knees! They kept me out of the basement office until just recently...so all of my email/internet/etc has been via my iphone and I haven't had the effort to update here. It looks like the hormones that release your hips for childbirth also released my knees so I had major soft tissue injury to my knees, got an MRI the day after the twins were born and was put on crutches with strict instructions to stay off it...well, I live in a split level and had newborn twins and a toddler so you can only imagine the amount of times I rehurt it. It was so bad that at one point, my husband was away and I got out of bed to check on the babies and fell, pulling the bedroom curtains down on top of me and then proceeded to be unable to get up again. My knees just were incredibly painful and weak and wouldn't actually hold me up. Three months later and they can hold weight but I still can't fully bend or straighten the left one...I am going to they gym since I am allowed to ride a stationary bike and maybe swim (trying this week) but I really am praying they get back to 100% soon! This has been the hardest thing ever.

That being said, my family is amazing! The girls are all wonderful...although all three are currently sick and mommy is tired. They were healthy from day one and have been wonderful nursers so I haven't yet had to supplement, but, alternatively, I have no time to pump so I am just starting to be able to leave them for longer than an hour here and there (which is mostly okay with me). DH and I had one date night so far and it was wonderful and I am looking forward to more in the future. We are house hunting and found a big, beautiful house not too far from here that we are likely to be moving into in a few weeks...this house got small very very fast:-) I am constantly tired but constantly in awe of how fast they grow, how different they are (looks and personality...they are amazing), how loving Teagan is and how smart she is getting. There is so much for me to be thankful for. I guess that is something...just a few years ago I thought I would never have a baby of my own, and was told by my doctor that I would never carry a baby myself...and here I am, 3 years later, with three beautiful daughters!

I have a ton of pictures but not on this computer. I will try to post a bunch later or tomorrow but I thought I'd give an update anyway. I miss all of you and am trying to keep up with what is going on with all of you. I've finally emerged from the stress and funk that accompanied the intense pain and inactivity that the knee caused. I can't even describe how that impacted me emotionally as well as physically...I didn't have PPD but definitely struggled with my inability to do anything with Teagan, carry my own babies up and down stairs, etc. It was HARD.
