T is for Triplets


Triplets, Taylor....


...and Time...as in...Where does it go? :)

I've joined the A to Z Challenge for the month of April!
We are celebrating the letter T all day, Monday the 23rd.

  1. You are my mom hero for raising your boys and dealing with the trials that only Autism can bring. Many Kudos to you Betsy!

  2. LMAO Taylor does not look happy to be surrounded by three
    There at your tree
    The one and only until three more came along
    Must have thought that was all wrong..hahaha
    Yep time does fly

    1. haha...yeah the only child
      when life was sweet and mild
      then one day poof
      he thought there must be a goof.
      Some time later he did say without cheer
      "Get these babies outta here!"
      No joke..
      poor little bloke!
      hahaha.

    2. LOL I just had one
      That I thought was no fun
      Can only imagine three
      Would not cause glee

      Delete
    3. haha yes, and you got sweet revenge
      naming him Hard Head
      and causing him dread!
      lol.

    4. LOL the dryer was the best
      Got plenty of payback on the pest

    5. Can't believe you tried to do that
      you were the evil brother pat.
      And he doesn't try to get you back
      now that he's wiser and on the attack?
      And what did sister always do?
      Did she tattle on you?

      Delete
    6. haha he fell for many things
      At our wings
      And nope never got me back
      For any such attack
      Yeah she was a tattle tale
      But I also did things to make her wail..haha

      Delete
    7. Made her wail, I have no doubt
      probably gave a little shout
      And since you want to boast
      I think you should do a little post!

    1. That was a sweet day...their home coming day.

      Other days...not so sweet. lol. But I don't really remember all that much...it was just a big blur. ha.

  5. Little did you know when you snapped that photo on the couch that they would later chew that same couch to the bone. :) What beautiful boys they were and still are, but you knew that didn't you?

    1. haha..oh, that is so true! They chewed it down to the frame! No, I had no idea. Taylor teethed on the proper things...those little teething rings and zweiback biscuits.

      I was thinking about you earlier today...you are you doing? Still have all those little ones?

      Delete
    2. Yes I do! Which is why my internet time is limited. :)

      I like your picture on the side bar! Did you take it? I think it would be hard to get a profile shot of yourself.

      Delete
    3. OK...was wondering how that was all working out. You'll have to give me an update about your meeting last week!

  6. What a wonderful way to represent "T". Love the pictures!!

    And where did time go?? We're up to T already? :)

  7. aw those are some cute little boys! isn't it amazing how time flies?! It does not seem long that I was 'swimming in diapers' too!

    1. so true...but when you're in the middle of it the days don't seem to go by very fast! ha.

      Delete
    2. oh agreed! I used to seriously resent 40ish women who would look at me, smile, and say "this too shall pass" how I hated that saying! haha, silly me!

      Delete
    3. or "Enjoy these days!" haha...when you really just wanted to sleep...or cry.

      Delete
    4. I'm sure I cried plenty of overwhelmed tears, ha, come to think of it I still do sometimes. I'm sure I'm no different from anyone else, though. Tears are a great tension reliever, if only they wouldn't give you a stuffy nose!! Haha, I'll go away now...

      Delete
    5. I'm not really a crier but if I'm really tired, I will...yes, and feeling overwhelmed can do it, too. I always hate the way it makes my contacts feel so I try to avoid it if for that reason alone! haha

      Delete
  8. It hard for me to picture 3 little bundles coming out of "Little Betsy"... How much did each one weigh? As someone else already mentioned...You are my Hero too.

    If they do this alphabet thing again... I may just have to join in... I've really enjoyed yours, and several of your friends that are participating.

    1. haha..oh, they weighed a lot. I carried them to 37 weeks! They were 5.1, 6.2 and 6.6..almost 18 lbs in all. But they were big, healthy and able to come home with me which was great for triplets.

      I think they do this particular alphabet every April, but I've seen several other kinds around that don't condense it down to one month. This was a lot of fun, though, and I think I liked the fact that it was condensed!

      Delete
    2. Oh my ~~18 lbs. My Julie was 6.5....and that was just one shot!! She was in a hurry...got to the hospital at 4:30 pm and she was born at 5:02 pm.....Doctor didn't make it, the nurse delivered Julie!!

      Delete
    3. oh my...that is fast! I'm sure the nurse was more than capabale...they do most of the work anyway, don't they? ha.

  10. Adorable! I can't even imagine having three babies at the same time - I commend your patience and then add in autism; you are one awesome lady!

    1. yeah, darn that autism..lol...it just made a hard job worse! lol. But when these pictures were taken they were healthy and happy and we were just worried about feeding schedules and what the 2 year old thought about it all. :)

    1. OH, I know...it was a little crazy! We wanted a little girl after we had Taylor...one little girl. Imagine our surprise when we found out there were not only three, but not a single girl among them! hahaha.

  14. The above comment just cracked me up. Also the photo with your oldest son is adorable. He looks like he is completely shocked about the delivery of these 3 bundles of howling and tininess. What an adorable photo! Also, I love your spring moon. It looks like that tonight...just hanging sweetly in the sky.

    He looks confused lol
    My son was older and when his brother was put into his arms he looked at him as if to say, what the heck is all this? lol
    Babies are miracles. But the experience now helps him cause now he knows how to raise his daughter.
