An Apple a Day

As they say, it should keep the doctor away. Unless you have three babies. Or even one baby. Apples will do you no good. You should go. All things considered, our little dudes are so healthy. So, how did our first outing as one big happy family go?

(First, very important. I have a plethora of amazing people in my life who are helping me manage right now. My gratitude is deeper than the ocean. But on this day, it happened to be my little sister, Jenna. Thank you Jenna.)


Here is everyone all packed up and ready to go. Our appointment was at 3:30. So we started getting ready to head out the door at 1pm. We were 10 minutes late.

All loaded up in the car! This particular trip, we packed into my sister's Honda Pilot. I'm embarrassed to say we don't have our family car yet. Phew. It's on the list... It's on the list...

Once out of the car, this is our preferred method of travel. I call it the "Triplet Train." It's a beast. But sleek. It can fit through a doorway. Which opens up a lot of real life living. We can go to the store, shopping, to church etc, without it being too major of an entrance or production. Well, we'll see. We haven't exactly done any of those things yet.

Patiently waiting for Doctor Dave to come check everybody out! Their particular weights on this day: Christian 9lbs 4oz, Sunshine, 8lbs 4oz, Gaber, 7lbs 4oz. A pound apart! Small, medium and large. My value meal family - so cute.

Wow these little buggers are adorable. It's amazing how much I love each of them so much. The late nights, the early mornings, the "Groundhog Day" type schedule, the diapers, the diapers, the diapers, the crying, the boogers, the never ending parade of someone needing something...




is totally worth it.

Way to go Gallaghers & Co.! You amaze me, I can't even begin to imagine the struggle it must be to get through a day! I would love to hear how a typical day goes in the Gallagher house.
