Sick Emerson! Awwwwww!
Sick Alex! Awwwwww!

Finally Healthy!
Last night I was watching television after all the older children had gone to bed. When I looked over at Griffin, who was sitting in his bouncer chair I was amazed at what I saw. He was staring into the corner of the living room ceiling laughing, cooing and smiling. It almost looked as if someone was there. He continued on for about 4 or 5 minutes before his eyes became heavy and he eventually fell asleep. I wonder, do babies see things we don't? I remember the triplets doing the same thing and the ironic thing is, he was staring in the exact same place they always did. I like to think it's my Grandmother, who passed away in January of 2007, the same week the triplets where conceived. Or maybe David's mother who passed away when he was 10 years old. It's amazing how the mind works. I can just imagine my Grandmother in the corner making silly faces and smiling so big at my baby. She always loved the little ones. Or David's mother coming to check on her newest grand baby. One never knows I guess. I wonder what they both would have thought of all these baby boys. I'm sure they both would have been the best grandmothers and loved them unconditionally. I wish they where both still here, life would be so different, less dramatic I'm sure!

Me and my baby!

The triplets are finally over their colds. It was the longest month of our lives. They would feel good for a day or two than be sick for a week. I can't wait for the weather to break so we can air out the house and get rid of all these sick germs that seem to linger. They have started playing like big kids now. I think they are playing games. One smacks the other than they run after the third. They can do this for hours. They are needing me less and less which is nice since Griffin needs me now. But I kind of miss them only wanting me.

Austin had a great weekend. He hung out with his Aunt Ella. They watched movies, went shopping, visited Aunt Terri, who has been quite ill and went roller skating. Then on Sunday him and I played the WII and he crowned me Queen Mother of the WII! I think he was impressed that his mom could play his video game better than he could! Than he started watching the original Star Wars movie. I knew all the characters since I saw it as a child. Again he was impressed by his mom! I think he has a brand new respect for me after this weekend, as he should...I'm one cool mom!

As many of you know, I have been collecting data and writing a book based on my blog...mostly my experiences as a mother of multiples, foreign adoption and MY life. This includes all MY experiences as a mother and the trials and tribulations that come with it. This week I have started with the experiences of extended family and their opinions of you and your life. Let's just say my book is taking an interesting turn. I have a whole chapter in my head and can't wait to have the time to sit and write it down. I have also decided to start a new blog. I really feel the need to write on a more adult level sometimes. So I think maintaining a blog with more grown up content would be appropriate and leaving this blog about the kids is a better fit. I will start it soon and those of you interested in the site can email me at themamaofive@ hotmail dot com and I will direct you to my new site. It will not be a blogger site or able to be found through google so you will have to email me for the site name. I will still maintain this one about the kids but maybe keep my rants and raves to a minimum. Maybe not.

To those few people(they know who they are) who are telling stories to anyone who will listen, just know this. Everyone is now talking to each other and therefore the lies you are telling are now becoming very evident to everyone. So if your going to lie to several people in the same family it would be wise to tell the same lie instead of making up new ones with each new person. Maybe then no one would question your credibility or your sanity! It's like the story of the man that caught the 6 inch fish. By the time the story has been told and retold the fish is now 40 feet long with razor sharp teeth. I'm wondering, after 3 big is the fish today????
