First, a quick photo dump.

Some pictures from our last photo shoot. The weebles weren't cooperating in any sort of way, so I'm surprised our photographer even got these shots! But man, oh, man, are these kids growing. Noah is closing in quickly on 40 pounds and the girls are somewhere in the 35 pound range. We are having a horrible time find clothes that fit them, because they have absolutely no waist or back end, so pants just fall off. Could be worse, I suppose :)
And now, for an explanation into my lack of updating. First off, the time. Not that this blog requires oodles of time, but once I get home from school, feed the noodles, clean up, put them to bed and then do other housework, I'm beat! The last thing I want to do is log on to the computer to post. (Sorry, friends. Just keeping it real)
The second reason is because as time progresses, I feel like we are less and less identified as a family with triplets (which is COMPLETELY fine in my book). As the weebs develop their own looks, personalities and likes, they become less and less of a group and more and more individuals. Yes, having triplets it it's own special set of challenges, but really, these days we are just a completely normal family with three children. Who happen to be the same age. There isn't really anything special in our day to day goings that stands out.
The last reason, and quite possibly the biggest reason, is that this is so incredibly public. Yes, I know most of you readers personally. BUT, I have had it happen before that complete strangers have walked up to me and said "Oh, I love reading your blog! How are the kids?!" To me, this is becoming unnerving. When the kids were first born, the blogs purpose was to keep everyone updated daily on what was a very touch and go situation. Now a days? I feel like I'm walking a fine line between what is okay to share and what infringes on my children's lives. It's not my story anymore, it's theirs. And I'm struggling with what's okay to share and what isn't.
So, there ya have it. The reason for my absence. I'm not sure how much I will be posting in the future, but I do know that I still need this space. I need to go back and look at how far they've come. I need to read posts from the few months after their birth to remind myself how strong my children are. I need to remember all of the comments that were offered here, as you all rallied around me to carry me through some of the most difficult moments of my life.
Thank you for following me/us on this journey. Your support has been so incredibly appreciated.
