Internet... well intermittently anyway!

Anastasia, Oliver and Harrison
Well I know it has been a while since we posted and a lot has happened in that time. We are now firmly ensconced in our new home in Australia and have packing boxes everywhere! The nursery was slowly set up with all 3 babies sharing one cot for 1 week until I got around to assembling the other 2 cots. Now they all sleep in their own beds ( but as the room is cosy they are still close to each other!).
We have been to the doctor and Harrison and Anastasia recieved their 2 month shots(yep hard to think that they are 2 months already) and thankfully had no adverse reactions whatsoever... I was dreading it as wondered how we would cope with distress babies for days on end. It was a complete family affair to go to the doctor... daddy, nanna and nandad had to attend to lend assistance and support as this was our first real outing here. Daddy got upset when his girl got her injections as he was holding her...think he would have gladly swapped so she didn't have to cry. Oliver is trying so hard to catch up to the other 2 .... he is drinking as much as them and tries to stay awake as long as they do..but still gets referred to as our little one. They have all put on weight with Harrison now a whopping 3.7, Anastasia 3.5 and Oliver 3.1 kilos which we are very happy about. Still waiting for them to sleep through though.... lol a bit early yet!
Some photos of our beautiful babies :)
Anastasia been a little princess

All done... yay!!

Harrison, Oliver and Anastasia

Great day yesterday with the finalisation of all the paperwork... yes this is it!!! No more visits to various departments with copious amounts of paperwork and the correct facilitation fee.... we are free to leave when we want. Actually we have until June 10th to exit the country according to the children's exit visa's and that is when we do leave. Yes I know we could go earlier but as we have already booked and arranged tickets, accomadation and connecting transport we have decided to just chill for a few days and then fly out on Friday...we can relax, do some touristy stuff and last minute shopping( my sister will need an extra suitcase if she keeps buying!)

On the tribling front... all are doing so well. It is hard to keep remembering that Oliver is 22 days younger than Harison and Anastasia.... that is till you pick him up. He is our featherweight champion with the other two going through growth spurt and demanding more and more good stuff! Actually they are all on the same schedule but Oliver has 20mls less than the others at bottle time. They are just delightful and developing into such different personalities. Harrison remains laid back after everything.... just looking around and enjoying the view. Miss Anastasia has attitude in a positive way.... she will let everyone know she is needing something so please attend her! Oliver has a serious look about him with the biggest eyes I have seen.. he is observing everything. Thankfully they are all good on the bottle/boob and most of the time do give up their burps... sometimes with a bit of a fuss!! And they are sleeping really well at night only waking once for a feed between 2-3am each night... then sleep through to 7am!

Anastasia playing cute!
Oliver been serious!

Mummy with Harrison, Anastasia and Oliver.... my arms full of babies!
Anastasia... yes we are heading home!!!!

Anastasia has it right with the attitude.... It will be good to get home and get ourselves set up in our new house... our cargo arrives just after we get back so will be busy setting up the house and especially have fun setting up the nursery. We have 3 lovely new cots, change tables and other stuff absoultely necessary to make a wonderful nursery. There are some colourful disney motifs to place on the walls too! The rocking chair will be greatly appreciated by mummy :)

Paula and co!

Update from Delhi or more photos

Some photos of our delightful family. We are eagerly waiting for the DNA results to come and till then we are just getting to know our three beautiful babies.... it is a great bonding time that we will surely miss when we go back to our routine of work and normal daily lives.

Mummy and her babies!
Hopefully the passports will be done by Friday and then we only have a few more steps before we can fly home.... Have tentatively booked to fly out 10th June(fingers crossed!!) and then we have all our furniture and belongings arriving by shipment on 15th June to move into our new house in Gladstone. Gonna be kinda busy when we get back to Oz!

Will keep people updated... getting kinda hot and steamy here in Delhi and am soo glad we have airconditioning. We would not cope otherwise! Also it is so fantastic having both my mother and sister here helping with the babies.... definitely makes it easier.
