3 Car Seats Across One Row

I’ve had quite a few people ask how we fit 3 car seats (rear facing) into our new 2012 Kia Sportage EX which only has one back row of seats. As many of you already know, it’s all about the seats you use. But, the majority of available “slim seats” are extremely expensive. It’s especially expensive when you need to buy 3 at a time like we have to! So, I did a bunch of research trying to find seats that were no more than $100 each and would fit comfortably in the new car. After searching I came up…

New Photos Added – 5 Months Old

I finally found the time to dig through the last month of photos. We picked our favorites and posted them to a new gallery entitled 5 Months Old. We also updated our family gallery as well… Most of these photos were taken by Esther’s Aunt Paula and Uncle Chris. As you can see everyone is doing great and growing fast! As always, thank you all very much for taking the time to send in your positive comments, advice, notes/emails, etc. We really appreciate all the comments and emails!

Our First Trip to Target – 14 weeks

Today we headed out to our local Super Target. Esther thinks it’s very important that we live our lives as closely as we would if we did not have the triplets. She thinks it’s a bad idea to stay locked up in the house with them just because we have three, and not one. We’ve taken the babies to Babies ‘R’ Us and many walks, but never to a place to do some actual shopping, and never without other adults to help. I was a bit nervous about the whole thing simply because I didn’t know what to expect from…

Generic vs. Name Brand Baby Formula

As a first-time parent, there’s a lot to learn. With 3 babies, things get complicated quickly. The one thing Esther and I seem to go back and forth on the most is baby formula. More specifically, generic vs. name brand baby formula. It’s a hot topic as we can spend anywhere from $400 – $700 a month in formula. In the US, ¬†all baby formula is strictly regulated. Most generic and name brand baby formula exceeds the government’s minimum nutritional standards, all using basically the same ingredients. So, is price the only difference? Esther and our triplets don’t think so….

One Year Ago Today

One year ago today was just like any other Saturday for me. I got up, walked my dog Diego, and worked on a web development project for a client. After the day’s tasks were complete, I nervously got ready for a first date. I don’t usually get nervous about meeting new people, but this seemed different to me. Little did I know that I was about to meet my wife, and that we’d be married and parents of triplets in less than a year. Esther eventually called to say she had arrived at my apartment, so I went downstairs to…
