Strong and growing
The triplets are doing great as they approach there one month birthday. Orlando and Reese weigh more than 6 pounds now, and Mercedes weighs more than 5 pounds. They are all voracious eaters, and we have had to increase the amount of milk/formula that they eat each feeding.
Currently, Rees and Orlando are sharing a crib. I found them head to head today. They are somehow managing to scoot toward one another... I think I have to put up a third crib soon. Mercedes has a crib all to herself. She would wake up the boys more than she already does if she had to share. Her favorite new trick is the banshee scream. She likes to perform this trick at the hours of 1 a.m. and 4 a.m. if anyone is interested in hearing her in action. By screaming loud enough to shake the glass in the window frames, she is able to get both of her parents to come running on command. We love it! She makes nails on a chalkboard sound like a lullaby.
I love watching the babies grow. They look bigger to me every day. They are amazing.
