Wow...almost 5 months already?!?!

Lainey, trying cereal for the first time by spoon. After she got used to the whole idea, she liked it. She was getting mad that I wasn't getting it in her mouth fast enough! Our mild mannered little girl was turning red, stiffening up and "yelping" at me! It was very cute and funny. Lainey has also found her voice, so to speak. She used to sit quietly and wait for someone to pick her up. She is still such a good baby but she doesn't like to sit and wait anymore...she will let you know she is there! Oh, but when she cries, it is the saddest makes me want to cry!
George kickin back in his swing! He is off oxygen during the day, but is still on it at night. I do have a feeling that will change this week though...he is supposed to be re-tested on Tuesday (fingers crossed)! George is definitely a mama's boy, much to daddy's dismay! He is still refluxing, but it seems to be getting a little better...I hope it's not just that we are getting used to it! He was weighed last week...11lbs 7 1/2oz! The girls haven't been weighed lately but if I had to guess, Emery is right behind George, probably around 11lbs and Lainey is our little peanut, probably around 10 1/2lbs. My little man is a major cuddler too!
Emery...this is one of my favorite pics of her! Though she is now completely off oxygen...guess I'll have to get another picture like this without that tube! This morning I was feeding Lainey in the nursery, George and Emery were both fussy. They are yet to have the coordination to get their binkys back into their own mouths. I heard a sucking noise coming from Emery's crib...she found her thumb and was going to town! It was really cute! She has tried to find it a few more times today...sometimes successful, sometimes not...and when she isn't, she gets mad!! Emery is smiling up a storm these days! George and Lainey are really starting to smile too, though Emery is the little charmer right now!
Here are all three together at around 4 months: (George, Emery, Lainey):
My days are busy, but couldn't imagine life any other way! The babies are eating cereal now at night and are sleeping really well! They usually will go down around 11pm and sleep til about 6am. Yesterday I had the babies out by the pool while my nephew, niece and their friends swam and then we went to Music In The Air last lots of fresh air. They were SO ready to get home at the end. We fed them their cereal (Emery was too worn out to even finish!) and put them to be around 11...they slept until 9am!!! George was a little fussy around 8 and Ryan brought him to me in bed and we had a good cuddle! He was a cozy boy!
So, people say the strangest, funniest, rudest, oddest things when they see you with 3 babies. Last night was no exception. A man came up to us and said to Ryan, "Triplets!?" Ryan replied, "yup!" Then the man asked, "do twins run in your family?" Really? Twins? Ryan's response was great, "well, they usually crawl first." hahaha! I love his quick wit! The man looked a little confused! :P

Lisa, they are getting so big sand super cute!!! I know what you mean about the comments!!! I usually just smile and keep on going. One lady came up to me at Nick's t-ball game and said oh, I have twins, I know how you feel and I replied you have no idea:) I hope you are feeling better with a little more sleep.
