morning report

Home Alone (the great Judy Johnson)

I’m sneaking in for a very quick update from the little kitchen here, where I’ve snagged a quarter cup of coffee and sit next to the humming ice dispenser. Alex and I made it through the night, though in fairness this was Triplet Parenting Lite at best. I took the 2:30 round, and basically only bottle-fed Pablo while his brothers were “gavaged” (fed through their little shnozzes). Even that little bit was difficult. Pablo must have been pooped from a champion day of nursing and feeding, and about half way through the bottle he stopped trying. The milk backed up in his little mouth and spilled onto his chin, his alarms went wild, and his big lunk of a half-awake and only marginally useful papa panicked just a little bit – I’m choking the kid. Our benevolent nurse, Eileen, stayed away – though in truth she was monitoring the situation remotely (they can do that here). Eventually, when he had sucked down about two thirds of his little mini-bottle we opted to put him back in the bassinet and shuttle the remaining bit home via tube. That was it for me, I was dispatched back to the couch, and the next thing I knew it was 8am and I was skimpering lamely out of bed. Al was in the next room writing thank you notes, fresh as a morning bun. She’d been up since the 5:30 feedings and adventures, during which time Levi claimed the Night Crown from big brother Pablito. 

Now there’s a snow storm out. And, um, a fourth boy who needs feeding (our black and furry son). What to do…maybe another quarter cup of coffee before any decisions are made.
