First Easter

Last weekend we celebrated the first family holiday with the babies.  This resulted in us making two outings to grandparents houses over the weekend and I have to say that it went pretty well.  The babies are good in the car and they are always happy when we visit others because they get held way more than they should!  This weekend is the first time the babies got to meet Uncle Craig and Abbie.  I was pretty proud of the girls that they did not snot, spit or puke on Craig.  I think they sensed his fear and rather than acting on it, they decided to behave themselves ;)

There really hasn't been much else excitement around here.  The girls are getting bigger and bigger all the time.  As of yesterday their weights were:

Ava - 8 lbs. 12 oz.
Lia - 12 lbs. 7 oz.
Mya - 11 lbs. 5 oz.

Everyone is putting on about half a pound per week.  Maybe someday Ava will catch up, but for now she is gaining weight at about the same pace as they are.  They are getting closer and closer to sleeping through the night.  We usually have at least one good 6 hour stretch out of all of the babies.  We have stopped waking up all three to eat when the first one wakes up and just doing demand feeding at night.  Some nights it works out great and other nights not so much.  The past three nights we have had at least one baby sleep through the night so hopefully they are starting some good habits.  It would be nice since I will sadly be heading back to work next Tuesday.  I know that after 6 months off it is time, but I can't imagine how much I will miss being home with the kids.  It will take a big group effort to keep things going once this happens.  Hopefully we don't all fall apart!  I'm sure it will be fine!

I am sure there are plenty of other things I should talk about, but they are all escaping me at the moment.  We have been working on getting responsive smiles out of everyone.  It doesn't happen easily, but with lots of attention and talking we are usually able to pull a smile out of them.  They are starting to be awake more during the day which is more work, but hopefully it means that we are getting closer and closer to sleeping through the night on a regular basis.

I guess my next post will be as a working mother of 5 so wish me luck!  Here are a few more pictures of the cuties..enjoy!
