Happy 1st Birthday Payton, Jillian and Chloe!

The triplets are officially 1 year old and it is nothing short of a miracle that Mark and I made it through. My mom and Grandma and Mark's parents all came down for the big event. Their actual birthday was on Thursday, April 7th. They all had their one year check up and they are a far cry from where they were one year ago. When born they were all right around 3lbs. Today, Jillian is 19 lbs 3 oz and 27" long, Payton is 19lbs 2oz and 28" long, and Chloe is 21lbs 10oz and 28" long. They have really caught up with their weight and are close to or just below the average one year old. As far as height, they are still a little short for their age, but the doctor said to give it at least 2 years, before their height will be a good indicator of their genetic potential. Developmentally, they are doing really well. They are all pulling up and walking along the couch. They can walk with walking toys and walk when someone is helping. Payton is really trying to stand and walk on her own. They are saying Mama and Dada and mimicking everything we do. After the doctor's appointment, we took them to get their one year pictures taken. Our big mistake was that we scheduled their picture appointment for 1:00 which is right around nap time. Needless to say the picture taking was a nightmare, but surprisingly they turned out well. We had planned to do a picnic that night, but all the adults were exhausted so we just ate dinner in and spent time with them. Saturday was their birthday party. We did a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse theme. They love the music from that show so we thought it was appropriate. The party was fun and the girls got so much stuff! (toys, clothes, a picnic table, swimsuits, beach toys, a water/sand table that they love, just to name a few). We got them a triplet wagon that works out really well when we go places and they love taking walks in their wagon. We did let them dig into their own cakes. Jillian couldn't get enough. Payton was reluctant at first, but did start digging in and Chloe wanted no part of it. It is really neat to see their different personalities emerge. Sunday we went to the beach with Mark's parents and the Byrnes. I don't have any pictures from the beach up here yet. I actually don't even know if anyone took any, but they wore their new swimsuits and played with their knew toys. Grandma and Grandpa watched the girls a large part of the time at the beach and Mark and I actually got in the water and had some relaxation time. Overall it was a great weekend. This weekend we are planning on taking Mark's parents to St. Augustine so stay tuned for more pictures.
