Month 2: First month home

Their first month home was difficult for us. Since Kevin had to work, I did not wake him up in the middle of the night to take care of the babies. I did not want him to be tired and sleepy at work while I was able to take naps during the day. It took a few weeks, but I ended up having it all under control. They were all on the same eating schedule because of being in the hospital for a month. I did get lucky that only one baby would wake up in the middle of the night and not all 3! Once one woke up, I would feed then wake the next up to fed, and did the same for the 3rd. Usually it was Ashton that woke up in the middle of the night to eat. He seemed to be on schedule for every 3 hours! Which was good because I didn't have to set an alarm to wake up. Brittany and Caitlyn wouldnt cry or wake up in the middle of night if they were hungry. They seemed to wait for Ashton to cry.  There were many nights where I would come to bed around 1 am. I think the whole first month they were home, Kevin and I did not go to sleep together. There would be nights that he was getting up to go to work and I would just be getting into bed to go to sleep.

Every night, we would make the next day's bottles so they would be all ready to go when it was time to feed. Sometimes it was very difficult to go out somewhere because usually as soon as we got to where we were going, it would be time to feed the babies. That usually took about an hour because it was just the two of us and three babies. Then, its not everyday when you see triplets so we would always get stopped by people because they wanted to see it. An hour trip to the mall turned into a 3-4 hour trip. Of course, we would always get asked the same questions over and over again. It did get a little annoying because we couldn't go anywhere without being stopped.

Other than feeding them, changing diapers and putting them down to sleep.. that's pretty much the whole 2nd month for them!
