I'm semi-normal!!

This week (and by week, i mean the past 3 days that josh has been at work), i feel like we finally have things a little bit figured out around here without him. The babies and i have had lots of fun hanging out, we survived solo-mom bath night, worked out a new way to prop the bottles to feed the babies when they all want to eat at the same time, and my hands-free pump finally arrived...which is a lifesaver when there is a 1:3 ratio of mom to babies!

As we start to get in the hang of things, each new event is one thing more i can do with them that makes me feel semi-normal. I used the sling a few times this week when there was a fussy baby and i had other things that needed done-this week is was Colby both times, but he got to hang out in the sling while i washed dishes, did my hair and made lunch (all 3 separate occasions). I bought a cheap-o table with an umbrella for the back porch so i can sit outside with the babies without blinding them, and the biggest accomplishment was tonight...Shel and I met at Abuelos for dinner (hopefully enough spicy food to send her into labor) with all 3 babies!! It went great. The babies were awesome...even Avery who tried to skip her feeding before we left! We were obviously a sight to see...3 baby seats, one mom with a huge diaper bag, and one soon to be mom who is 9 months pregnant. We got a few comments, a few stares, but nothing too much that would keep me from doing it again!! I'm not sure what my next adventure is going to be...but so far so good!!!
