Memories

My friend Kate had her triplets 2 weeks ago, and they have been home for a week now. I was sooo lucky last night to meet them and hold the smallest one, Logan. I think Kate was so sweet to let me handle Logan because he is the smallest, and he is also on oxygen. Both Brayden and Keaton came home on oxygen, and seeing and holding him brought back SO many memories. Logan is actually just about the size that Brayden was when he came home (Logan was weighed yesterday, 5 pounds, 1 ounce). I got to change his diaper, feed him a bottle and then change his little outfit. BTW, Kate is super mom. her kids have not had to have formula yet cause she has been pumping and nursing and has the best organized system for these boys! It is amazing! Logan was so sweet and it was something I looked forward to ever since Sunday when I planned the trip. I feel so lucky to have gone. I did not bring my camera or take any pictures because it was so late but I do have some adorable pictures of the boys that I stole from Kate! ;)

The boys when they were born.
Cute mommy Kate giving Logan his first bath at home (and might I just add with sincere jealously that Kate looks AMAZING. She looks better after having triplets than I did a year after having one! Way to go Kate!) Can you believe how tiny they are??
Thane, Weston and Logan.
Sooooooooooo adorable!!!

And on a separate note, I have been having the worst headaches lately. They really have just been a dull pain off and on for two weeks straight. Not one long continuous headache, but at some point in every day I get one. I can't put any association with it. Sometimes its when I wake up, sometimes its after I work out, sometimes its just smack dab in the middle of running errands or something. I've thought it was allergies, but I have taken medicine for that and it doesn't help...plus I have had allergies before and can tell this is a different type of headache. I've tried drinking more water, eating more protein, taking all kinds of ibuprofin, excedrine, etc. Nothing seems to do anything!! Today it turned into a migrane. I woke up with a terrible headache, but after breakfast and ibuprofin, it was barely there....until around 1pm today. Oh boy, it came on so strong I thought I was going to throw up. i almost did, like 5 times. I just laid on the couch and then when I went to get Kyler from school, I cried the whole way home and was trying so hard not to because I knew it would just make it worse, and it did. So finally around 4 I took a percocet I found (we have a few leftover from Keatons birth) and it barely dulled it. I was so dissappointed. Percocet, by the way, is my dream drug. I.Love.It. It doesnt do anything for Cortney, but for me, it makes everything in life wonderful. Don't worry, obviously if I have some from Keaton's birth, I don't take it for fun. But you must know how HUGE it is that it did nothing for me. So bummed. So I added some more ibuprofin to it later on and now my headache IS gone. I am literally terrified for tomorrow. I am so worried it will come back. So even though I am sure it is something small and silly, I am going to make the trek to the doctor as soon as I can (calling first thing in the morning) just to make sure I am doing everything I can in the right direction for ridding myself of this awfulness! Wish me luck!
