11 Months Old

The triplets are going to be a year old already next month.  Every month I think “this is my favorite age” then they get a little bit older and I think the same thing all over again.  I did the same thing with Jaden.  Although, having a five-year old is so interesting!  I love to watch his personality emerge and how he mimics Doug and I.

The triplets still aren’t walking … but are getting pretty close.  They love table foods.  Weston is still attached to his nook.  Logan has a smile that can charm anyone’s pants off.  Weston can wave “buh bye” – only when he wants to of course.  Logan’s trick?  He shacks his head back and forth when you tell him “no no no”.

Less than a month and we’ll be celebrating their first birthday.  It’ll have a silver lining of course.  Owen “would have been” one.  I don’t want every holiday or life even to be about how Owen isn’t there.  We have three boys who ARE there.  I still want to celebrate the boys we still have on earth.  They are just important.  It doesn’t mean that I won’t be thinking about Owen … I would give anything to have him back.  But, we have a lot to still be thankful for and we are going to celebrate it!

Love, Mel

God bless them Mel, seriously I think of you all so much. your story touched me so much I check your blog all the time to see how u all are doing. God bless you all, always!!!!

  4. I came across this quote, seems fitting for the struggles you have been encountering with people’s opinions and your daily question about whether or not you can continue to live a happy life….. “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, It’s about learning to dance in the rain” I find the quote to be fitting of any struggle we come across in life. We can see through the painfulness of situations by realizing that pain is a part of life and happiness is homemade. You are a great example to your boys as they see you turn a horrific experience in to one that you can use to make a positive impact on other’s lives.
