Life with Coco and Gigi... and Jack-Jack too!

Life with three kids

Somehow I am unable to find time for simple things like pulling the photos off my camera or getting the house cleaned up. Yet here I am with five minutes to write something. Unfortunately my brain isn't moving in a very linear direction but I will try to stay as focused as possible.

Life with three kids has been a daily adventure. I am trying to find a good balance of making sure that sometime Jack gets to be first and other times the girls do. I want the girls to know that they still rate but also that sometimes they have to wait. Thankfully by almost five they get it most of the time. We have had some struggles with the girls (mostly Abby) but it has been very minimal.

It feels like Jack was the piece of the puzzle that was "missing" and now it is full. He was destined to be here and it was just a matter of timing. I am so thankful for all of them.

I am still sleeping in short bursts. Jack was sleeping great at first but has now settled into being a "normal" baby and wakes every 2.5 to 3 hours to eat at night. Most of the time he goes back to sleep with little problem... but not always.

Two tubes of triple paste and plenty of A&D have helped the diaper rash. The thrush is settling down and we will continue treating it for 10 days post symptoms. Stopping the medicine too soon is a mistake you only make once.

The girls have only two weeks left of school and I am guessing the end of school is when life is going to get interesting. I will have to find a way to get them all to the pool and the library and all of our usual summer places. I know we won't do it as often but I don't want life to come to a halt because we have a new baby. I guess we are all experiencing the learning curve of a new family member.

Loved reading that your family now feels "complete" that is the best feeling!

Danielle - It really is a fantastic feeling! It's like we found something we didn't even know we were missing!

About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
