I think the hardest thing to being a Mom to triplets is the fact that I get NO sleep. Seriously- I have not gotten more than 4 hours a night in months. Oh well. One day I will take the longest nap on beach in Mexico. :) For some reason, I gave birth to children who do not care to sleep all night. Emma is the best and sleeps ALL night most nights. Khloe has her nights where she will sleep all night, however, she has MANY nights where she wakes up all night long. No clue why?! Hunter varies. He is the worst though, and will wake up several times a night. He stands up, throws everything out of the crib and screams! Loud! Very Loud. Then, the girls wake up. Welcome to my nights. :) If you see me out in public, and I look like I need sleep, now you know why. I get very, very frustrated when I hear and get advice from other multiples moms whose children sleep all night. Why don't mine? And some think I am doing something wrong. What am I doing wrong? We play hard all afternoon, they eat a big dinner. I have tried everything. Shortening naps, making them longer, playing with the air condition. Is it too cold in their room? Too hot? Too bright? What's up? ahhhhh we will figure it out. Hopefully before they are 18!! Ha! Till then, pray that I don't turn gray.

More exciting news to share; my brother and sister in law, Erin, are parents!! They welcomed Hadley Marie Avis into the world on May 29, 2012. I was able to be there (waiting patiently in the waiting room) for the arrival. Perfect, healthy baby!! She's so beautiful, and has already stolen my heart. My kiddos have been so lucky to have already held Hadley and have seen her a few times since she has been born. Erin is doing great and just went back to work. They are great parents. We are so happy for them. Matt and I are also excited that we are Hadley's sponsors. She gets baptised on August 10, 2012.

Six weeks old already!! She looks like Scott here (to me at least)
Before I update on my babies, I would like to talk about my two new beautiful nieces. Matt's sister, Tammy and her husband Jason, had their second daughter on September 30, 2011, Isabella Ann. Gabriella is now a big sister!! We love our nieces so much, just wish we could play with them more. Between our children and Gabby and Bella, someone is always sick. However, we love them so much and we think of them daily. :) Bella has now passed up Khloe in weight. haha!! Gabby is getting to be a big girl and is so sweet, she will be 3 on October 1st.
