Hi Everyone,

I couldn't remember where we moved to so I had to look up ole e mails! I'm glad to hear everyone is doing well!! Chelsea is at ECU and will be coming home soon for Thanksgiving break! Mackenzie is just finishing up field hockey with the banquet this week. I'm doing well, off for the NJ teacher convention! Neal's school has been off all week since not alot of kids come to school!! I wish we could have gone some place but Mackenzie only had 2 days off! Has anyone done the Explorer 9 day out of Port Liberty? I'm thinking of that one since there is no airfare involved.
I know I promised you pictures but I can't figure out how to post without the girls' help! lol!!

Hi Denyse,
We are booked on the Explorer for the 9 day cruise on June 21, 2012. When are you thinking of going? We might end up on another cruise together.

Amanda is at 31 weeks. She went on modified bed rest -- ie she can only work from home and is supposed to lie down as much as possible. No standing to make a meal etc. At least she got her shower in on Nov. 6.

Her in-laws and Chuck and I have been helping her get things ready. Her sisters in law and friends gave her lots of clothes (even preemie if they need them). So clothes up to 6 months were sorted, washed, put in drawers. Cribs are up with mattresses -- just need mattress protectors, and then they will put on skirts and sheets. They sorted through all the other stuff, items got returned, the regestries have been updated and they have some nice credits. 3 boys requires a lot of stuff. I think they are getting 3 swings from triplet parents whose girls have outgrown them.

The perinatal practice will do measurements on Wednesday. Her target date is Dec. 17 -- 36 weeks

Sherri,
Sounds like your daughter is doing great. She sounds very prepared. I had my twins at 35 weeks. They only had to stay in the hospital for 1 week. I can't wait to see pictures.

That's reassuring to know how well your twins did at 35 weeks. My brothers were born at 34 weeks in 1952 and one had to stay in the hospital a week longer. And they had no NICUs back then.

It is great for her to have family nearby (her in-laws are in Savannah also).

Sorry I have not posted since the beginning of January. have been really busy workwise.

Jan - -Amanda had the triplets -- all boys on Nov. 28. All were fine although Charlie was 3 lb. 12 (Ray was 4, 11 and Evan 4, 7). They are all over 8 pounds and I think Ray is over 9. Very healthy and we are in Sav. to help as much as possible. They are so much fun -- getting strong and beginning to interact. Here they are in their triple boppy: Charlie, Ray and Evan

Hi Sherri
Congratulations on your grandsons! They are so cute. So happy to hear they were all born healthy and are doing well. Three boys, your daughter has her hands full. Although I did not have triplets, my twins and my oldest were only 10 months apart.

Thanks Cheryl. Amanda does have her hands full. We try to go into Savannah as much as possible to help and her inlaws are 5 minutes away. The boys are getting to be a lot of fun.

Beautiful babies --- I miss not having any little ones. We do have our grandson this weekend (he's almost 2) and we just got a new puppy (she's 9 weeks). Sherri - you must be enjoying being a grandmother, isn't it wonderful?!

Cheryl - twins and a 10 month old - that must have been quite the trip!! My 2 oldest children are 15 months apart and it was wonderful and a lot of work at the same time. (Then I waited 7 1/2 years and had another one!)

Hope everyone is doing well - Has anyone heard how Shirl is? Jan

Congratulations!!! Nothing better than being a grandma!! Neat if she is born on Sept. 2 as it was her grandpa's birthday!!

Our boys are 4 1/2 months and growing and exploring. Uploaded two pictures -- Ray on left; Evan in Middle and Charlie on the right. They are having baby conferences!!

My next cruise is coming up -- two weeks from Sunday -- really need the break as I am so tired.

It was a great cruise with a really strong rollcall. Glad it is still going.

Have sailed on Freedom about 7 times since it was moved to Port Canaveral.

Mariner is sailing from Galveston and Europe.
