December 2012

The last few months have really flown....the trio are so busy growing and learning that there doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day. Admittedly by 6-6.30 they are ready to head to bed after a full day of fun and activities. And they take themselves into the room and wait beside their cots to be lifted in with a kiss and cuddle.... so cute.... hope it lasts! Harrison is now 11.6kilos and Anastasia and Oliver are our lightweights at 10.4 each. They mostly feed themselves( very messy) with only the occasional"mummy help". They are only having one nap now during the day... try to get 2+ hours but sometimes they only sleep 1-1.5 hours :(
We have been down to Brisbane again and enjoyed catching up with family and friends as well as taking everyone to Dreamworld and enjoying the "fast rides". Oliver really enjoyed this and wanted more while Anastasia and Harrison were keen too but happy to look at other things and everyone enjoyed swimming. They also loved playing in the rain one morning when it came down really heavily ....daddy took them out and they had a ball!
Enjoying popcorn with another set of SCI trippies
our first merry go round ride
Oliver very serious about driving the car!
We had a bad run with ear infections and have seen a specialist who recommends that they all have grommets.... yep all 3 are booked in for surgery in January.  Hopefully this will sort out the ear problems and we will be able to cancel our weekly(joking!) doctor visits. Not quite as bad as that but they know us as the triplets!
We are spending Xmas at home but will be visited by both sets of grandparents and auntie Cinta as well so will have a full house with lots of food, fun and festive times
Not sure about Santa but there were no tears
Anastasia, Oliver and Harrison

With Daddy
Not another Xmas party!

Getting tickles
Good morning beautiful
See our lovely beach

The last 12 months have been amazing, exhausting at times but completely the most satisfying year we have had. It has been wonderful watching our three babies develop into little toddlers with such different personalities and we are looking forward to see them blossom even further in 2013.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone. I hope that all the IP's get positive results and that everyone can complete their families in the new year.
