Happy Belated Easter!

We went to Minneapolis for Easter. I got to hang out with my cousins Addy and Ash. It was a blast! Addy and I got to sleep in the same room, but we got in "trouble" a couple of nights because we wouldn't go to sleep. We were real smart about running to our spots when someone came in, but they thought it was strange that we were laying down and out of breath.

I got to dye Easter eggs with Addy, Ash and our Mommys. (The daddys supervised and were in charge of the cameras.) My mommy kept telling me to go easy as I put the eggs in the containers, and I haven't been able to figure out why. I got a little impatient with some of the colors because the eggs had to sit so long in the dye. But it was fun...

The Easter Bunny brought me lots of fun stuff to play with. But I think my favorites are the 1) the big monster truck and 2) PLAYDOH! Who could ask for more? My mom made me put this pirate rag on my head so I didn't stick playdoh in my hair. Daddy showed me that playdoh stuck to his forehead so I thought I should try it too! Mom didn't think it was so great, but she let me try anyway!

That's about it... Love, Cayden

The Start of a Blog

Well, we finally decided to start a blog to keep family and friends updated with the latest in our lives. Here's a quick update of what's been happening in our chaotic lives:

1). We found out we were pregnant in the middle of January.

2). We found out that Scott received orders the end of January. These orders are to Germany with a report date at the end of May.

3). We found out at our first Doctor's appointment (Feb. 15th) that we are expecting twins! We had to schedule another ultrasound at the hospital to confirm.

4). We found out that it's not twins, IT'S TRIPLETS!!!! The ultrasound we had done on Feb. 22nd confirmed that we are really expecting 3 little bundles of joy. I think the ultrasound techs (we had to have 2 to confirm what we were seeing) were as surprised as we were, especially when they asked if we were on fertility drugs and the answer was NO! (On the picture, top left is Baby C, bottom left is all three, top right is Baby A, and bottom right is Baby B).

So that's the excitement of how 2008 has started for us. As of now, Scott still has orders, but we are working hard to see what we can do to have them cancelled or deferred. I am not cleared to travel (imagine that), but the rest of the family is. We are waiting for our next Doctor's appointment which is March 31st.

The due date of the triplets is planned for full term of Sept. 24th, but from everything we have read, we hope to make it to 32 weeks or longer. We have told Cayden that Mommy has three babies in her tummy. Every night after his prayers, he kisses my tummy, rubs it and says "I wuv you babies" three times, one for each baby. Then Cayden makes sure that Daddy also does the same thing.

We'll try and update this blog as often as possible,

Shayna and Scott
