Life with 3

We were quickly thrown into life with 3 kiddos! We were totally thrown off by Daphne's earlier than expected entrance. Kevin and I were going to use Monday (he had the day off, but the girls still had MDO) to clean our entire house. Knowing this was the plan, I basically didn't do anything last week. I kept up the laundry, cooked ahead, and rested - while doing school with Norah and just playing. Clearly our Monday was spent in an entirely different way than expected.
We came home on Tuesday - late morning. Tuesday night, Lucy started throwing up. Welcome home to us. We have tried to keep Daphne completely away from Lucy. Lucy is broken hearted over this. She says, "I better now. I see my new sister." She is constantly asking where Dahpne is and what she is doing. We have so many pictures of Norah and Lucy the first few days Lucy was home from the hospital and we have NONE of Norah, Lucy and Daphne. Lucy seems to be feeling a little better, but you can tell she still isn't 100%. Thankfully, my mom has been here to help with Lucy.
Daphne is doing great! She is a great eater! As with most newborns, she sleeps constantly! At the doctor today she weighed 6 lbs, 4.5 oz. She seems so tiny, but I think you just forget that all newborns seem tiny. She will probably be like her sisters and be on the small side of the scale.
Those of you who know Norah and Lucy well, know that they can't live without their silky blankies. We found one for Daphne that is different from Norah or Lucy's, but still very girly! I had eyed it at Kohl's before she was born, but since we didn't know what we were having, I decided to wait. This blanket was on clearance so it was gone at the Kohl's nearest our house, but the Kohl's by our doctor's office had one left. So now Daphne has her own silky blankie, too.

What a way to start out with three! Hopefully Lucy gets better soon so she can enjoy her new sister. Congratulations!
