We have called in reinforcements but unfortunately they are just temporary :) My parents have arrived for 2 days before they leave again to take Kaitlyn and Caleb to Florida with them for 2 1/2 weeks. Kirk and I have decided to be insane and take the triplets to Florida in a few weeks and then my parents will drive back with us a week or so later and help us bring all 5 kids back. I'm not looking forward to it! The screaming, the crying and then the babies make noise too...
But, Kirk and I really need a break and are looking forward to having my mom's help for a number of days as well as my future sister-in-law. We're also hoping for some time in their pool and a maybe the ability to relax!
The kids were super excited for Grandma and Grandpa to arrive today. Kaitlyn and Caleb asked a thousand times when they would arrive! The triplets had no idea but they took a bath and dressed in their best sleepers to look pretty :) And Alyssa had a surprise for them - her first tooth! Finally! Julianna has 4, Alyssa now has 1 and Rachel still has none.
Speaking of family, Kirk's niece stopped by on her drive up north and became the first of Kirk's family to meet the triplets. We also got the pleasure of meeting her new daughter, Liberty. Although at one month younger than the triplets, Liberty was much bigger and much more active. Go figure!
This is Kirk's niece, Joy and her son, Terrell (10), daughter, Victoria (3) and Liberty (7 months):
