On the first snow

The first snow drew Erik to the near-by fields to find out if he sees any animals. And he was lucky already on the first day... - here is the result.

Eating time

This is the technique how you can feed three babies at the same time! :) When I'm alone, this is the only way I manage to feed them and still find time to pump the breast-milk for them, too.

Bath time

Twice a week, the boys take a bath. All of them enjoy it a lot and if it was easier to bath 3 baby boys, we would go there more often. But it's a special and time-consuming event, so we usually go on Tuesday and Saturday evenings when the boys' grandmas are here to help us.
This week, all boys have reached 4 kilos!
Ralf - 4260 gramms
Fred - 4200 gramms
Sten - 4020 gramms
The upper photos are taken in the beginning of September and the lower photos one month later.

Ultrasound picture

I think I never shared the magical ultrasound photo -
this was the time when we realized, that we will REALLY going to have the triplets!
This is the only picture where they were seen alltogether - in week 12. Later, they grew bigger and no such picture was possible to take anymore.
Don't ask me who is who... I don't know! :) But I assume that Baby A may be Ralf, Baby B may be Fred and Baby C may be Sten.

Wood, fog and silence...

Summer in my garden - hydrangeas

Summer is officially over already for some weeks, but I'd like to look back and post some photos about my favourite Autumn bloomers - the beautiful hydrangeas. In fact, I can still enjoy their blossoms - not so fresh anymore, but they are still there. I have two types of hydrangeas - Smooth Hydrangea (puishortensia), which "dies out" for winter and acts here as a herb plant, and Panicled Hydrangea (aedhortensia), which is more like a tree. Among Smooth Hydrangeas, I have the sort called "Grandiflora" (got from Erik's mom) and among Panicled Hydrangeas, I have "Pinky Winky", "Pink Delight" and "Limelight".

2 months old

Time flies!
Today, our boys turned 2 months old. The boys are wearing birthday clothes today - a gift from Marta from Portugal (THANK YOU!) and they look so cute with those colourful shiny outfits. It suits perfect with the beautiful sunny autumn day!

I think it's time to tell you a little about our boys' characters. They are indeed 3 very different personalities.

First, lets meet RALF. The baby no 1. He definitely is the Leader. Our life goes how Ralf dictates it. When he gets hungry in the night, then all boys eat. When he gets unpatient to go to the bath, then we start with the bath. He has no patience at all and has to be the first all in everything. He uses his voice very often and normally cries just to get attention. He's also a mommy's boy - he likes to be in my lap as much as possible.
Second, lets meet FRED. The baby no 2. He is a serious guy. He likes to think a lot. He is much calmer than Ralf and can really wait for his milk easily, he doesn't mind to be the last in the things we do. He cries when he really needs to, and then his cry is to get help - it's much sadder cry than Ralf's voice to get attention. We think he'll be a Professor! :)Third, lets meet STEN. The baby no 3. He is our tricky boy. He likes to observe the world and is awake the most. When possible, he watches around with his curious look blinking his big eyes and winning everyone's heart... He is very moving and quick, and seems to be unpatient, but actually he isn't. He can wait just as Fred. He cries very seldom, normally only when he is very hungry. We call him our "cuty guy".

Lets see if they change their personalities when they grow older. It's very interesting to observe them, although I wish I had more individual time with each of them...
