What a week...

So it's been a while since I posted and it's hard to know where to start. The boys are 17 months now. Many things have gotten easier, I mean we can pack and get out of the house probably quicker than most would think. The boys are more active. There are days when I wonder how we made it. I guess that's stating the obvious. Well this week has been stressful...


Anyways, we have had a big week. Most don't know unless you are close family and friends that Samuel had yet another surgery this past Tuesday. I didn't plan on talking about it but since I have made this blog, kind of my baby book to the boys, I have to mention it. This was his 4th surgery and we were hoping his last but it looks like he will have to at least have 1 more in about 6 months. He had a few things done on Tuesday and the medical terms are Hypospadias repair, correction of Chordee, and scrotoplasty. Yes it has to do with his personals and in all honesty I really don't want to get into the particulars, most can google it. It has been so painful for him and really more than a baby should go through. He has been such a trooper through it all and I just look at him and marvel at all that he has been through. Every time he goes under it is just so nerve racking and all you can do is pray. Well he goes back next Tuesday to remove the catheter. Now when they were going over his discharge paperwork, they said no horseplay for 4 weeks. LOL! Ok, you know he's a triplet, right?! Well we're trying to keep Samuel down but it's easier said then done. Other than that Samuel is doing great! He really is! He's a little guy but healthy. He still plays the baby roll too well but all that he's been through, he's earned it.

Now Isaac is still my big boy and the biggest baby when it comes to fighting with his brothers. He loves to chatter and he is my chatter box. His thing right now is when you ask his a question like, did you hear what I said Isaac, he's say yes, and you'll say you did? He'll respond, I did. It really is so cute! He also love to throw the ball and although our family sport has been soccer I wouldn't be surprised if some baseball players emerge. He is also our Bam Bam! He is a big boy and doesn't always realize how heavy his hand is and usually ends up hurting someone with his playing around.

Jeremiah James-

As he is often called because it's usually followed by Jeremiah James, no. He is still my non-stop active baby! Just this month he taught the other two how to climb up the high chair and climb out of the crib. He is always first to escape or find a way to escape. Now Jeremiah or Demiah as we call him, no idea why, is also very sensitive. He gets his feelings hurt very easily and certain things scare him when you least expect it. However if he falls and your expecting to hear him start cyring, most times he just shakes his head and walks away. Unlike Isaac if you take his toy, he wont whine and look to me for help, he'll go after who took his toy and just take it back.

Well Lil Vic just finished 6th grade and elementary school and is heading off to Jr High in the fall. He ended the year with straight A's as well as receiving the Gold Presidential Award, this is for maintaining a 3.5 GPA or higher as well as scoring proficient or advanced on state testing from 4th grade to now. We are very proud of him. He is finishing up baseball and is now on a new soccer team, Manchester United, that he absolutely loves. He is a pretty happy camper right now. He is also on 2 other soccer teams, just for fun, one is a 6 a side and the other is on Friday nights with players from his team as well as a couple other teams from the area, Celtics and Barca. I know, it seems like alot but it really does get us all out of the house and the trips love going to parks on the weekend to cheer on their big brother.
