Our Life In Pictures AKA "I don't have time to write a proper post"

Simon, Linus & Dexter eating breakfast in their jammies. Life is a million times easier now that they can all hold their own bottles. Mind you, the fact that they CAN do it doesn't mean they necessarily WILL do it. Simon is known for throwing his and leaving. He has better things to do than lay around eating. There are flip flops to be chewed on, doncha know.

Simon now has 4 teeth, about to be 6. They're coming in out of order so he looks like a redneck vampire.

Dexter sits up like he's been doing it forever. This week he's even started putting a little pressure on his feet if you stand him up. Notice how his 12-24 month socks don't quite fit his heel? These boys are growing up ridiculously fast.

Linus is making leaps and bounds in his strength and flexibility. He rolls from side to side with no problem. Today he rolled from his belly to his back for the first time ever. Big accomplishments for a guy who was completely immobile 3 weeks ago.
Trina wanted me to see how Linus could pick up his head during tummy time. He thought it was fun at first.
That didn't last long. Tummy time sucks according to Linus.
But he used the anger to motivate himself.
Look at that form! Perfection for approximately .03 seconds. It still counts. :)

All of our boys are snugglers. I really hope they stay that way. Nothin better than getting baby lovins.
Dexter says "Do you mind? We're trying to cuddle"

This was taken right before bedtime. Look at those sleepy boys.

Dexter & Simon snuggling during nap time.

Trina was rocking fussy babies to sleep. Apparently it was a little too effective.

This is my favorite picture of Simon and I. Couldn't you just eat him up?

Two of my favorite people.

Dexter and Simon cheesin in the baby jail.

Everybody still loves Jumperoo time.

A tired Linus getting his tube feed. He's our only pacifier boy. We give them to him during his feeds hoping he'll make a connection between the sucking and his belly getting full.
He loves his Lovie by Swaddle Designs.

My all time favorite bath picture of Simon. That kid is such a ham!

The boys were playing and Dex kept looking over at Linus sitting in his bouncer.
Simon decided to go see what he was up to.
Linus was super excited about having company.
He even let him chew on his coveted chicken toy.

Linus has started eating a little from a spoon. We're trying to encourage him to eat orally so we can eventually wean him from the tube. Unfortunately it usually ends in puke city.
He LOVES cereal. He ate half an ounce before erupting like a volcano. :/
After Linus puked his guts out, I stripped him down and was cleaning him off. He kept trying to take the wet washcloth from me so I got him his own urp-free one to play with. He loved it. Goofy child.

Simon loves his brother SO much. I have a feeling he's going to be a very protective big brother.

Linus finally found his feet. Still can't reach them, but man do they look like fun!

Dex chewin' on his wooden giraffe. I love this kid's face. What a great smile.

Apparently it's "check out your toys in the nude" day at the baby cage. Who knew? I love the concentration they each have. "Hmmm, yep, everything looks like it's in order here. How about you guys?"

Linus is pretty sure he's "Matthew McConaughey sexy." Just look at those abs!

I just can't get enough of all of them.
It's crazy because you lay them next to each other and in some pictures Linus has caught up in size. and then you sit him in his bumbo (whatever) and he looks miniature.
They all look like they are growing in LEAPS and bounds and I just love seeing them all together.
Way to go mommies.

Team Us said...

They are the cutest kids ever. I am so happy that Linus is doing great. We pray for everyone of you every day.

MFA Mama said...

Eeeee so cute! Go, Linus, go!

Michaela said...

loool, I love your comments. The "inspection of the toys" is one of my favorites.

So great that they are all doing so well.

vigilceo said...

Oh my ..... I'm so happy to see this post!!! What beautiful babies!!

Kathrin said...

Those boys are just way too cute! How you get anything done besides watching them is above me.

N said...

If it makes you feel any better, n went into that size sock around 6 months, and is still wearing them just fine. ;-)

Those pictures are just to die for. I'll take picture posts any day!

H2 said...

The big boys are losing some of that baby fat already! Yay for Linus rolling over. I knew he'd catch up fast once he was home with his brothers.

This post makes me happy for two reasons:
1) Linus is home and looking GREAT!
2) The three babies that Trina did such a good job carrying and giving birth to all look like their other mommy (you). How cool is that that both of you had a part in making them?
I don't know you guys, but I'm rooting for you. So glad you've gotten more normalcy back in your lives, as much as raising baby triplets can be normal!

Its so good to see all of them together! They're all so big!

Darcie said...

They are all so adorable! I imagine you two are in a constant state of cuteness overload! :)

Sarah said...

Very cute! Seeing Linus makes me remember all the things we went thru when David has having his heart surgery. We didn't have all the feeding issue you do but we had some. Hugs to you and hoping for urp free feedings soon.

Kara said...

Oh my gosh, your family is so freaking ADORABLE I can hardly stand it!!! So glad to see everyone up, about and healthy. :)

LOVE these picture posts. Those are some gorgeous and happy boys, and it's pretty much impossible not to feel better about the world upon seeing them.

Franci said...

Gorgeous, gorgeous boys!!!

Hannah said...

sillywrongbutvividright said...

I can't tell you how much it warms my heart to see your family of five looking so happy! What an absolutely beautiful (exhausting) time you must all be having!

I've been following your blog since the days of Trina barfing every two minutes with the pregnancy, you guys have had a tough time, and I hope that from now on, you get nothing but pure joy! :)

All 3 look so great! And adorable.

Myndi said...

The boys are so beautiful! Fantastic pics. :)

Those boys are just so stinkin cute! Their smiles are just the best thing in this world. Linus seems to be doing better and better. I know there are challenges and I keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers. I know I've said this before, thank you for sharing this journey with all of us. Give the boys extra kisses and hugs from me. Leslie

Cat said...

Proper post or not, my trio of almost two year olds really enjoyed the pictures, as did I. They were pushing each other out of the way to see better while they pointed out "baby", "sit", and "high chair".

So glad you're all under the same roof!

jade said...

So glad you put that many pictures, I could come back and look at them every day (until the next post comes up that is). Hope all's fine over there,hug, jade

Allison said...

Bugger to hear about the g-tube... Thankfully, it's a pretty straightforward procedure, can they do it in a single day for bigger babies?? It will (at the very least) give you guys more time to sort out his eating issues without worrying about his intake. Babies in the NICU end up with them sometimes (usually because they can't stop barfing when set up with an NG tube), and more often than not they come out later when they grow out of it. :)

THE BOYS ARE SO CUTE!!!!! I love the big grins. Oh boy you guys are in trouble, aren't you... ;)

Hello! I know you don't know me, but we've got something in common. I got your blog address off the Stirrup Queen's blogroll and was wondering if you wouldn't mind helping me help a couple who is trying to add a little one to their family. We're holding a silent auction for them this weekend (Friday and Saturday) on goteamwitt.blogspot.com and need help getting the word out! We would love it if you would spread the word via social media or here on your blog. Additionally, we are always looking for more donations to auction off, so if you or someone you know might be interested in making a donation, all the information is under the donate tab. If you have any questions or would be willing to post a pre-written blog post about the auction and the sponsored couple, please contact Kristin at goteamwitt@gmail.com Thanks in advance for taking the time to consider this!

Julie Anita said...

I pop in here every so often to see how things are going and OMG LINUS IS HOME??? With minimal tubes and things??? I can't believe it! <3333

Mike and Christi said...

I love all the pictures :o) You must be like me and take an unbelievable amount of pictures (you can never have too many). That's funny that Simon got his teeth out of order. So did one of my little guys!!

Teaberry said...

OMG, they are all so adorable!
