Happy New Year!!

I’m writing our blog today whilst chilling on the sofa with a cuppa, it’s been a crazy few days so it’s nice to just sit and relax! Well, Christmas has been and gone, is it me or does time go faster and faster each year!? We had a pretty quiet Christmas, we spent it at home with our folks, we’d all been ill again so it was quite tiring having 3 babies plus me and Steve feeling crappy, but we made it great for Flo who found everything magical! She is at the lovely age to really enjoy it, it did make me think how special it’ll be in a couple of years when all of them really ‘understand’ what’s happening!

Since our last blog we’ve had another stint in hospital with Amber, bronchiolitis again the poor little thing, we were in for 4 days this time, it becomes tricky trying to juggle everything at home, plus Flo, and work etc, luckily Steve is a real hands on Dad and the nights I stayed in hospital he held down the fort at home and vice versa.
Just before Christmas we took Eden to the doctors as she had really weepy eyes and once again we were sent to the hospital with her breathing, luckily they only kept her until the evening, but once one baby gets ill it’s not long before the others come down with it too!
We’ve resigned ourself to the fact that the girls are going to have times when they are in the hospital, as soon as they get a cold they do struggle with their breathing, it’s really difficult as their is nothing you can do to help them, 1 poorly baby is a worry let alone 3!
So needless to say the amazing bedtime routine and sleeping through the night which we managed to get for about 2 weeks has totally been shattered with coughing, puking or generally miserable little ladies! But fear not, we think we are coming to the end of it!?…. Famous last words!!
We’re hoping the new year will bring us happy and healthy children, because God knows I need a bloody rest!!!!
We are so lucky to have amazing family and friends that have helped us out so much in 2015, the times where we thought we couldn’t do it they’ve been there to help, sometimes taking all our girls so we can get a bit of time together as a couple, I seriously don’t know what we’d do without them, I most certainly wouldn’t be sane!!!
On a positive note we have 3 clever little babies that are now 10 months old (8 months corrected) they can sit up, roll over, still not quite crawling but it won’t be long, they wave and have really started interacting with each other it’s so cute to see their bond as sisters growing.
It feels like a lifetime of newborn babies but at the same time I can’t believe it’s been nearly a year and how far they’ve come from the tiny dots they were! I’m so excited to see what 2016 will bring to us as a family, we’ll carry on doing what we’re doing, were bumbling through this milarki pretty well I think!!!??…

    Well I just think what you guys are doing is amazing- everytime I have a bad day with my little one I actually think of you guys & think ‘Crikey Nic, pull yourself together’- ok I don’t have the help of family over here in oz but I also only have one baby so I just think you guys are incredible. Also the girls all look so happy & healthy so what ever you are doing is 100% top dog – 2016 I’m sure will be even better for you & your lovely family xxxx
