I think that's the longest I've gone without updating the blog in a long time. CHalk it up to us just enjoying the rest of our summer. The boys still didn't start school. They went today for an hour and I stayed with them. Seemed so silly because every kid in the class had been in preschool before. Monday marks their "official" first day. You know, the day of pictures with me and Frank with giant back packs on their backs. The day they get to wear the shirt they picked out. Start praying to the UPS gods the third one arrives by tomorrow or it's going to suck. One of the downfall of having triplets...hard to find three of the same clothes in the same size. Obviously, by looking at my pictures I have mastered it but this one couldn't be found and had to be ordered.
Cormac will not have the same Teacher of the Deaf this year. She is still from Summit Speech School. I met her briefly last year and she is great. She is also very proactive and likes to keep me involved. I always like that. We are meeting tomorrow to go over his FM system and make sure it is up and running for Monday. I honestly never learned anything about it. If I am being truthful I really feel like I was the worst CI parent ever last year. WIth Calleigh being so sick I feel like I was out of the loop with his Teacher of the Deaf. Not like me at all. I guess we were at a place where I KNEW he was OK so I let myself focus on Calleigh. Many guilty sleepless nights have come from it. Cormac, however, is no worse for wear.
This is a new year. A new start. Calleigh is so much healthier. She doesn't have as many doctors appointments. No surgeries are in her future so I can get back to a little normalcy. As for Calleigh, she just had her 15 month well visit. She weighed in at a whopping 18.5 pounds and is 26 inches long. She's a little firecracker. She might start Kindergarted in an infant bucket car seat! But you know what? I don't care. She is starting to crawl and pick herself up to standing. She is babbling NON stop. She says Mama, Dada and hat. I am waiting anxiously to see what she will call her brothers. When the boys were little and couldn't say each others names they called each other "Ree Ree" (ciaran), "ollie" Colin, and "mick mack or mimick for Cormac. I still call them those names because they are so adorable.
We are starting Flag Football next week. Should be interesting. I can't wait to see them play. They have no clue how to play so we shall see. They are all excited.
We spent the last few weeks literally at the beach. We didn't come home for about 2 weeks came home for 5 days and spent the weekend after Labor Day away with friends at a different beach. The boys had their first sleepover since we were all staying in the same house. Kennedy is their best friend and she loves them. They love her even more. Not to mention their little brother, Jack. Ciaran is his idol! She call the boys the "chiplets" instead of triplets. I said they sound like a rock band. "kennedy and the chiplets" I guess when they are older she will have to decide who she loves best. As of today it's Ciaran, however, Colin says he is marrying her. They are 4!!!
Lots of pictures to come very soon.
