Yup, 3 crawlers! This was the first time Dylan had crawled and I'd never seen Isaac do this either! Well, Isaac is only commando crawling but, he's getting there! Ailah is finally up on all fours, crawling properly. It is honestly so cute watching Dylan and Ailah crawling together, I can't wait until they all are. Yes, I can hear you all saying 'What! You want them to crawl?!' - yes, I do! I love this stage, they'll drive me batty I'm sure, but it'll be a fun batty....in a 'hide in the cupboard and drink wine' sense. I'm sure. I think.

We've been rather busy building a large undercover area......which I've been taking loads of photos as construction has been happening.....to have just deleted them on the camera *internal screaming* but, I'll get over it!

All I hear out of Dylan and Isaac's mouth is da-da and da-dee. Come on boys!! He's only here 1 week out of 3! Ma-ma ma-ma ma-ma!!!!! Ailah is just a tad cute, she tries to crawl away when I go to pick her up and thinks it's hilarious. Isaac loves to have a cloth nappy square placed over his head, then pulls it off and laughs to my 'peek a boo'! Dylan can wave! It is adorable! Tonight when we were video calling Daddy he waved as soon as he saw Daniel on the screen and not long later said Da-da. I'm not counting it as his first word (I don't unless it is said in context), I'll wait to see if he does it again or if it was a fluke. But I bet it made Dan's day.

So I did their 9 month (gasp - 9 months!!!!????) photo shoot, which I was pretty proud of! It was a week late but I loved my idea to use their funky shag rug as the backdrop. You will see that again I promise!

There were LOTS of horrible shots. 2 babies that are moving around and 1 who turned super grumpy the moment I aimed the camera on him is not a good idea - but perseverance is a good thing, so here you are.

 Isaac, Ailah and Dylan

 Note the bath toy in Isaac's hand. The only thing that would keep him from crying.

With our fantastic Nanny away for 2 weeks (back today - woohoo!), they got to come to swimming lessons. Thankfully there is a room that I can sit in and they can watch the kids swimming. They loved it!

They love this toy that Grandi got them - Isaac tries to push the other two off so he can have it to himself - did I mention he's our bully? Loves taking everything the other 2 are playing with and he always wins tug of war.

Love, love love this pic. Daniel hasn't even seen it yet. Gee he's a bit of a spunk!

Just a normal thing for AIlah. She was a monkey in a past life. I am in big trouble with this one. She is a major climber. I even found her on top of one of those clear storage boxes. Yes, on top. On her hands and feet. Eeeeek!!!

I've started birthday party planning. It's going to be big. I've never done the whole 'over the top matching thing' - generally it's fairly matching but not crazy lady - this however will be one of those parties. It's not everyday that your triplets turn 1!!! Stay tuned........


  1. Hello! My name is Jaime, I live in America. I came across your blog through a friend. My husband and I just had triplets 2 1/2 weeks ago. They were also spontaneous, and we have a 3-year old and a 4 1/2-year old too. The babies are still in the hospital for another two weeks or so. I would love to be in touch with you! I have a million questions about how you manage everything. I'm also nursing, so my biggest hurdle I'm trying to figure out is feelings, especially at night. Anyway, I'd love to hear from you! My email is jaimevarley@gmail.com. All the best!

  2. Hi I'm Heather! Please email me when you get a chance, I have a question about your blog! LifesABanquet1(at)gmail.com
