"Multiple" Personalities

I can't believe my babies are 10 weeks old, and they are literally changing daily! They are really starting to develop very different personalities, and it's so fun to watch them interact with each other.

Sweet Jack. Jack is my laid back baby. He could care less if the sun rises or sets, he's just happy to be in this world. As long as you feed him and change his diaper he is good. He's the one that will wait for the other two to have their bottles. I think he would sleep all day long if you would just give him his pacifier every once in a while. God knew what he was doing when he gave us Jack.

Mama's Boy Gabe. Gabe has definately become a mama's boy lately(and that's fine with me!). He can get a little frantic at times, and all I have to do is walk up to him and he quiets down. He's also quite the snuggle bug. He loves to nuzzle in and go to sleep. And let me tell you, that is some good luvin!!

Miss Priss Isabella. She is definately all girl. The little thing is the most high maintenance for sure. Put it this way, the nurses in the NICU said she came out spoiled. She loves human contact, and is already a little mess. She will fight you tooth and nail if she does not want her pacifier or if she is not ready to lay in her bed. Boy arewe going to have our hands full with that one.

Just a little update.....
They are now all smiling at us, and that is the best feeling in the world. They're still eating every three hours, so sleep is minimal at the Michael house, but hopefully that will change sooner than later. All three of them love their Little Lamb Cradle 'n Swing. Thank goodness, because they really don't like bouncey seats or anything like that. And don't even think about turning on any type of vibration for Gabe. He screams bloody murder. Another thing that seems to pek their interest is their Baby Einstien play mat.
Mom and I ventured out of the house to Target last week. It was quite the side show. We got the typical questions that we were told we would. "Are they triplets?" The best one was, "Did you have them, or did you adopt them?" But at least everyone was nice.
I went back to the doctor last week to get an IUD, and Dr. Leach got to hold them for the first time. We both still couldn't believe that all of them were in my belly 10 weeks ago.
So that's about it. Mom and I are taking them to the doctor for their 2 month check-up tomorrow. Wish us luck. Three screaming babies...oh Lord! all of you mom's of multiples who blog on a regular basis...hat's off to you. Especially you Suzanne. How do you do it??? I'm trying to get better.
