How time flies. Criton is walking a lot now. He still needs to work on balance but he is getting really good. Unfortunately for me he is also climbing everywhere as well.

Well it seems like just as I get things figured out, something else happens and our world changes dramatically. I have a rare heart condition called IST. I have had it for about 8 years now. With a lot of work, I have had it controlled (no big issues) for the last 4 years, until after I had the triplets. I gained 31lbs of fluid in the last week due to pre-eclampsia and it was just too hard on my heart.
