18 Month old Stats
The triplets had their 18 month doctor appointment today (even though they just turned 19 months)… It would be my luck that Haley had a rough morning before the appointment. She has been up, off and on, since about 4am which made for a very tired and cranky baby. Not a good combination with a doctors visit. They hate going there, and it is complete mayhem from the time they hit the scale until they are leaving. They scream, cry, and have literal meltdowns.
I always have hope that the next visit will be better but so far there is no love there. This time was no different. Dad had to work so big sister (miche) went with me. This worked out because she started showing the gummy bear music videos on her phone which definitely helped calm them a little. It is amazing what those videos do! (You can find them on youtube by looking up “gummy bears”) 18 Month Stats Haley: 27.2lbs 32 1/4 inches Criton: 23.14lbs 31 3/4 inches Caitlin: 26lbs 31 1/2 inches He said everyone is looking great and right on track developmentally. We talked briefly about how good the kids are doing with the transition to toddler beds and he asked if we have started potty training yet. In my head I was like “Really? How bout we get solid footing on the toddler beds before jumping into that”… My actual response “We were thinking about giving it a shot around Oct or Nov.” Most multiple moms I spoke with don’t even start trying until 2 1/2-3 years old. I thought we were doing good at trying right around 2 years. I guess we’ll just see how things progress. Here are a couple of pictures from our visit… Haley laying on the floor, tired as can be, trying to stay awake. Miche (big sis) entertaining Criton and Caitlin with Gummy Bear music videos.
