2 Months Old!

Sorry for the delay in posting. Funny thing, triplets keep us SUPER busy so there's not as much time for blogging- lol. The babies turned 2 months old on Saturday. It's amazing how big they have gotten in just 2 months. Jake tops the charts by weighing a whopping 10lbs. 14ozs. Luke isn't far behind at 9lbs. 6ozs. Sarah is still the smallest but holding her own at 8lbs. 8ozs.

The babies can focus more now and actually stare at us when we feed them. They are also now reaching for things like brightly colored or light-up toys. Jake has developed the bad habit of grabbing my hair. Another good milestone is that they are routinely sleeping 5-6 hours at a time at night. What a welcome change from the 2-3 hours the first few weeks they were home. At mealtime, Jake eats 4 2/3 ozs. Sarah eats 4 ozs. with Luke eating 3 2/3 ozs. Jake and Sarah do great with feedings but Luke struggles sometimes. I think he may have reflux or something as he arches his back, squirms around and refuses the bottle a lot. We plan to ask the doctor about it at their 2 month check-up coming up.

The babies celebrated their 2 month old birthday by taking a trip to Rockmart, GA to visit some extended family. We visited with my great-aunts Margie, Wilma, and Christine. With these 3 women included, we have 5 generations alive at one time. We couldn't pass up the opportunity to take a photo of this rare occurrence. The aunts loved the babies and didn't want to let them go. It was really a special day! I hope we get a chance to go back soon. The babies are such good car-riders. They slept the whole way there and back. We didn't even hear a peep until we turned on our street. I'm so very thankful they like the car.

Enjoy their 2 month photos and one of the 5 generations photos we took!
