No, they're not walking yet

Over the past 5 years, I have developed some really good relationships with the insurance agents I work with. I only visit some of them every 6 to 8 weeks so when I see them they are anxious to hear all the details of the triplets' lives. And since I see new people every day, the same details and the same stories I've shared over and over are all new to them. So I can't blame them for my frustrations because they don't know I've answered the same question over and over, but I'm really, really, really tired of answering it. No, they are not walking yet! I know it's just my own insecurities but I feel like my children's inability to walk at 12 months is somehow a failure on my part.

When I was pregnant with the triplets I was more than halfway through the pregnancy before I ever felt them move. Other friends of mine felt their first flutters at 16 weeks, 18, 20, etc. And there I was desperately waiting, but not a single twinge. Finally around 22 weeks I felt those first few flutters. I was so relieved that finally when people asked if I could feel them moving, I could answer a jubilant "YES"! So for now, I'll keep answering people's questions and hopefully soon I will be the proud mommy of some toddling toddlers.


  1. Don't worry Kel! Landon didn't walk till he was 14 months. They will do it eventually. Then you won't be able to keep them still. :) Love you!

  2. Don't worry, they will walk before you know it! I didn't feel mine in utero until later too...everyone thought bc there were three I should be feeling them sooner.

  3. Lilly didn't walk until she was 2! (That's a lot of months of people asking: "is she walking yet?!") But trust me, it didn't matter - but it was nice to get that checked off our developmental list! :) Love the latest pics.
