I LIVE by a schedule.  I love routine.  I'm not OCD or anything, but I love routines.  When I shower, I do the same thing, in the same order every time.  Weird?  I think most people do that, but maybe I'm wrong.  When I played volleyball I did the same thing before every serve (bounce the ball 7 times, then spin it up to my hand, and bam).  I feel like the babies love a schedule too.  At first Curtis fought me on how strict of a schedule I keep, but now he gets it.  It has created happy babies who sleep really well!  I think if I only had one baby I would be a little more lenient in a schedule, but with triplets it's easier just to stick with it. 

The babies have become more predictable lately, which I love.  Even their poops have become like clockwork.  It makes things a lot easier.  It still gets crazy at times, but manageable.  They eat, play for an hour, then go back down for a nap.  Eat, play for an hour, then go back down for a nap.  And repeat.  They drink five bottles a day and take three naps.  The only "hard" time is from 6:30pm-8:00pm.  It's SO nice to have Curtis home and help out during that time.  After the 5:00pm feeding they pretty much stay up until bedtime.  Occasionally they will take a quick catnap, but it's never longer than 15 minutes.  I feel like I'm getting the hang of this triplet thing.  Some days are harder than others, but overall I feel like it's getting easier.  The babies are such happy babies and bring such joy to our lives.  We are so in love with them.

BYU vs Utah.  We all know how that one ended.  Lame.

I, for one, am a true believer of schedules! I love them! So glad the babies also thrive on them. Makes life SO much easier! You're doing such a good job!

Ill be coming to you and Jamie for help in the schedule department when I have kids! I love to have the same schedule each week like school days work days etc but somedays throughout the day i just want to do anything and everything or nothing so I'm afraid when i have a kid ill screw it up and be miserable if I want to go somewhere when its nap time because i know that schedules are such a great thing for kids. Aside from that I love the bumbo pictures of the kids with curtis sitting on the couch in the back ground! Awesome!
