Fall Fun!

Happy Fall to all!!! We have some serious catching up to do with everyone since I have not updated this blog since the beginning of September...time just gets away!!! Anyway, things have been going great for the "terrific trio" since their first birthday. Everyone has continued to develop and grow great. In fact, they are getting down right big! Olivia is now 23 pounds and Madeline and Harry are both 21 1/2 pounds...which is fabulous! Developmentally, they are all doing great also...all three are pulling up and cruising around the house a ton. As some of you may have already seen also, the girls have even taken a couple of steps all on their own!!! Harry can walk around with help but he has had a little more trouble because he has what is called pronating ankles. Basically, his ankles are weak (mainly from being a 27 week preemie white male) and so they are rolling inward which makes it hard for him to walk around for extended periods. So his physical therapist had ordered him orthodics which will help him a ton! We think he will be walking all over before we know it once he gets those........uh, oh;-)

As far as the family goes, things have been basically the same except for one piece of big news....Bryan just accepted a new job!!!! Starting monday, he will be working for Exact Target as their Sr. Financial Analyst. This is a great opportunity for his and will be much better for the whole family because he will no longer have to travel and he will have much more advancement opportunities...we are so proud of you Bry/Daddy!

So here are a few (ok, maybe more than a few) pictures to catch you up on what we've been up to the past several weeks....enjoy!

Well, once these three started really moving around we had to whip out the gates to keep them corralled...here they are begging to be let out. They are the cutest little "jailbirds" we've ever seen!

They love to look out the front window...especially when the neighborhood kids are out. We tell them they can join them soon;-)

Playing in our tent!

Back in early September, I took the kiddos to Conner Prairie with our fellow triplet friends the Corcorans. It was a beautiful day and the kids had a great time petting on the animals and watching the people. Here is Madeline "riding" the pony....I think she looks like a natural!

They thought the blacksmith was really cool!

Harry trying to decide is he wants to touch the baby chick;-)

Olivia petting the baby sheep....they loved the sheep!

I mentioned that they are cruising a ton now....here is Olivia taking her walker for a spin around the family room.

Daddy and Harry...looks more like Daddy every day!

In the middle of September, we took the trio to a local Alpaca farm to experience something new. For those who don't know (we didn't!), an Alpaca is basically a smaller looking Llama. They were so cute and I think the kids enjoyed the excursion:-) Here is Olivia smiling at the alpaca.

Madeline checking the alpaca out.

Harry and Olivia

What is it about Grampy's? The triplets LOVE their Grampy so much! They get more excited when they see him than anyone else...including me;-) My Dad is so great with the kids and I just love watching them together....such special moments!

For the first weekend in October, we made our first family outing to the Stoneycreek Pumkin Patch. It was so much fun! The girls had their first pony rides and then we took the kids out to the pumpkin patch to pick out our pumpkins. We got one big one and three little ones for each kiddo. We will definitely plan on doing this every year!

That pumpkin was about the size of Olivia!

MAdeline and Harry

On our way to the pumpkin patch!

I could probably go on and on for hours about my girls' first pony ride;-) It was one of the happiest moments of my life! I am officially convinced both are naturals and will be wanting their own ponies in a few years...Bryan just rolls his eyes at me;-D

Harry being cute...as usual:-D

Madeline is still as crazy and fun as she has always been...this picture really sums her up!

Madeline with her pretty head band...this is a close as we get to hair accessories since she has minimal hair.

Princess Olivia LOVES her new hat...she feels sooooo pretty:-)

All three taking their bottles...we've got it down!

A couple of weeks ago we took the kiddos up to Potters Bridge Park in Noblesville to enjoy the nice weather...here are a few picks from the day:

Big girl Olivia...they are all looking so much older!


Last Sunday we took the kids to Zoo Boo with my mom and dad. They decorate the Zoo in a Halloween theme and we even dressed them up in their costumes. Olivia is a ladybug, Madeline is a bumblebee and Harry is a spider. It was SUPER crowded so we decided to carry everyone which worked out ok. Nonetheless, we had fun and I know the kids loved getting out to see something new.

This is my most recent picture of the triplets from a couple of days ago...I'm beginning to feel like I can't call them babies anymore:-( Look how big they are getting!!!


Up next for the Callahans is Halloween! I will be sure to post pictures from our first trick or treat:-D
