Running, Running and Running

They all have runny noses, It feels like it is a loosing battle on cleaning snot from little faces. I feel so bad for them. They can't drink there milk without having a hard time breathing. We have humidifiers going and rubbing lots of Vick's each night. I guess I will have to come to terms with, When one gets it they all get it. So between snotty noses and all three cutting molars, It has been a blast in our house! Poor little Collin has taken a beating lately. Two nights ago I smashed his little finger in the pantry door. I had no idea he was behind my with his fingers in the crack. Once I realized what i did, It was immediate tears for both of us. I felt so horrible. It swelled up and turn almost purple, I really thought I broke his little finger. In the end he was OK. Then the very next morning he fell and hit his cute little face on a plastic tote. Blood starting coming from the mouth and the nose. I just felt so horrible. Poor little guy, Lets hope that the only thing that happens today is me wiping his nose. Lately I have noticed that when one gets hurt the other two are very concerned. Gracie was rubbing Collins leg and then kissed him on the nose after Mommy hurt his finger. It was the cutest moment EVER! Gracie and Blaine are also into giving each other hugs and kisses. It melts me every time. Collin is the only one that doesn't show much affection towards his brother and sister. I can hardly believe they are pushing 17 months old. They are really starting to learn right from wrong. Even though they no it is wrong to dig all the trash out of the trash can. They still do it, and when they get caught there faces get the look of guilt. Every stage of there little life so far has so many different challenges. Here is an adorable picture I took just the other day in one of there cute moments
I also took a cute video of all of them dancing. It is there favorite thing to do these days..

I am so so so Blessed

So I was reading the Morrison Sextuplets Blog. And If you don't know there story here is there link http://littlemanmorrison.blogspot.com".

Anyways I am sitting here crying my eyes out. I can't seem to compose myself. I have never met them but can't help to think how amazing this family is. Anyone who ever has to suffer such a tragic loss and some how seem to survive each day, are the strongest and most amazing people ever.
Reading and hearing about stories like this just makes me want to fly across the country and hug these families. I can't even imagine what it would be like to loose a child..

So now I sit here and think about how TRUELY blessed we are. As much as I find myself getting frustrated and tired from all that it takes to raise 3 little ones. I have made a promise to myself never to take for granted. I have been given the greatest gift and that I am Thankful

SO to all those families that have gone through such a loss. Just know that I pray everynight for you.

The Holidays

I know that we have many more years of fun during the Holidays. But I had absolutely the best Christmas and New Years so far.. It is been 8 years since I have lived in the same town as my Mom. So no short little visits over the Holidays.
We got to bake, which is something we have done since I was little. They also kept the babies over night a few times so that we could come over and hang long after they went to bed. My Mom has a Wii and that thing is soooooo much fun. My sister and nephew came in to town a day after Christmas and spent a week. It has been great..
The babies loved all there new toys and even gave it a shot at opening a few. Grandma and Grandpa Cooper sent a great package of games so our family can build great memories together, It was a great gift. There were even 5 team Little Shirts in there..

Gracie was so Excited when they got there Elmo Live. I just love this Picture


Christmas Morning in there new Chairs



I know I have said this a million time, but they are growing way to fast. We have even started time out. We have take the superyard and put it in a corner. When they hit one another or get into something they know they are not suppose to, they get a 2 minute time out. It has been up for a week and so far only Collin has made it in there.
Blaine Got his first hair cut yesterday. It is amazing what a little cut does to there looks. He is so adorable.



We also took them swimming at the Rec Center. They has so much fun with Aunt Jess and Grandma in the Lazy river. This place was so cool, it had 2 big water slides, a section for the little ones, Lap pools and an indoor play area. We had a blast..
