Happy New Year!

Well what a crazy year 2008 was for the Callahan family...we went from 2 of us to 5 of us?!?!? But what three little blessings God gave us as I can't imagine what life would be without all three of them. It is hard to believe that 2008 is already gone though...it was definitely a year that we will never forget!


Our first New Year's as the five of us was VERY low key. Since we can't take the kiddos anywhere, it was just us at home and in fact, we went to bed at 9:30pm!!! Oh how life has changed for us:-D But Olivia decided that at 11:45 she wanted to get up and ring in the New Year so we were actually up at midnight...hehe.

The triplets' first Christmas was wonderful though! We celebrated Christmas day at our house with Grammy, Grampy, Nana and Aunt Leah. It really was so nice to have the whole family here so that everyone could spend quality time with the babies. They of course were spoiled for Christmas with toys, diapers (this is a big deal for us!) and a Jumparoo. They are too little for their Jumparoo right now but I think they will love it once they are a bit bigger.

Speaking of size, they are continuing to get bigger and bigger. We haven't had them officially weighed in a couple of weeks but based on our scale Olivia is up to 13 lbs.!!! Harry and Madeline are not too far behind either. They turned 8 weeks adjusted age on Wednesday so they seem to be doing just great even though they were so premature.

All three of them continue to be more and more social and interactive which is so much fun for Mommy and Daddy...those smiles and laughs are addicting!!! They have all discovered their hands too and are starting to grab at things a little more. In fact, Olivia has found her thumb! She has decided that her thumb is much better than her pacifier which is fine by us for now:-D It really is so cute though!

Well that is about it from the Callahan front for now! I've posted some new pictures below and will continue to update everyone as I find the time...which is easier said than done:-D Happy New Year to everyone!!!

Madeline is a goof-ball...she likes to take her hand and flip her boppy on her head...don't ask:-D :


Not sure where she learned this from but check out the pouty lip on Olivia! :

I cannot believe how fast they grow up! The thing that always amazed me was that even when you first get to look into their eyes, you see their personality! I always think, "You have not experienced life in the real world yet! How can you have personality?" But they really do, don't they! God bless your family! Enjoy every minute.
