About 1 month after having the triplets, about 1 week after Mia was sent home from the NICU, we moved. We had been living in a townhome that we spent a year designing and almost another year waiting to be built. We finally moved in Feb ’07 and found out we were expecting triplets in Dec of that year. The house and community would have been perfect for our first child, not our first 3 children. So we put our house on the market for several months but it did not sell. While I was in the hospital on bedrest, we got a private offer on our house (it was not even on the market at the time). It is amazing how some things work out. A few days before delivering the triplets, Max and I looked at houses online. Within days we had made an offer on our current home. The house is perfect. The girls and boys room were already painted. There is a room right off the living room we have turned into a playroom. The backyard is fenced (for Hayden) and their is a swing set. I never saw the house in person until after we had closed and right before we moved in. I love it!
It was crazy to move with 1 month old triplets but you would be surprised at how many other triplet families I’ve talked to have done it. This house is perfect for our family and I am so thankful things worked out for us. We have also been blessed with amazing neighbors who adore our dog and give him the love he deserves while we are busy with our infants.
Here is the girl’s nursery. My mom and Aunt Carol made the beautiful quilts for the kids. They go perfect with the girl’s nursery color.
Here is our playroom. This is the only room in the house we have done anything to. Over the Christmas holiday Max and I painted and cubbied this room. We spend most of our day in here.
