We love it when mommy goes walking cuz we get to stroll in our Mercedes. We usually go for 2 walks a day as long as it's nice outside. 1st we go with mommy and grammy in the morning and then later on mommy takes us again. Mommy's friends bought the Mercedes for us when they found out we were going to be born and it's a good thing because we were getting too big to share seats in the double stroller!! Actually - we're getting too big to share anything now...except clothes. Mommy says we have to share our clothes. We love wearing matching outfits but in differnt colors. That way we are dressed the same but different! We have to go eat now...we're really hungry.

Yup...todays blog is mine. My name is Emily Michaela Lucco. I have 2 older sisters, Hailey and Hannah, who are identical. Even though I'm the baby - I just happen to be the biggest baby of the 3 of us! I was born at 3lbs 10oz and now I'm 10lbs 5oz! I love my bottles...and I even coo when I'm eating.
I have an apnea monitor because apparently I stop breathing when I'm in a deep sleep. It's just that it's so hard to remember to do everything! I have to eat and grow and sleep and play. How am I supposed to remember to do everything?! I'm just a baby! So the monitor beeps really loud when I stop breathing and mommy or daddy come and wake me up.
I love to cuddle and right now I love to smile. I'm trying to giggle but it's hard for me just yet. I'm very easy going and I don't require much attention - as long as I get my bottles on time (and they're full of course!). I sleep in my own crib and I love to cuddle up with mommy in her bed in the morning. I just love life in general. It's a lot of work to be a baby but it's fun!
Where did I get my name? Well mommy and daddy love the name Emily. Daddy's best friend Jon had a brother that passed away from MS. His name was Michael. So...my middle name is Michaela (mi kay la). It's a very special middle name and I'll cherish it forever. Oh yeah...for a while mommy and daddy were told they were having 2 girls and a boy so they kept calling me Ethan Michael. I'm sure glad they changed my name when they found out I was really a girl! I'll be sure to keep everyone up to date on my progress. It's hard to get mommy to write in the blog for me though - I'll tell her one thing and she writes another! She says that it's important to include my sisters in the blog too but I don't know why. I mean...I'm special! But she let me have today's blog so I'm happy for a while. I have to go eat now.

Well it's been a busy weekend for us. We're very popular and we have a lot of people to visit. We went to picnics and parties and they were so much fun! Oh yeah...we had our 1st sleep over at gradma and granpa Lucco's too! Well...only Hannah & Hailey. No sleep overs for Emmie yet. She's in trouble anyway. She snuck a hot dog into her diaper bag and mom found it.
Daddy had one of us in his arms and he sneezed and he slipped a disc in his back. He can't work right now and now mommy has 4 babies to take care of. He has to go to physical therapy and we hope that will work cuz he can't pick us up or play with us right now. We miss the airplane game.
We've been sleeping a whole bunch at night. Usually 5 or 6 hours at a time. This is good for mommy cuz she's in a better mood in the morning now. But we don't do it every night. We don't want mommy to get too used to it. Last night we all woke up at different times and we even peed on mommy when she tried to change our diapers. We talked about it when mommy left the room and decided it would be a good night to keep her up and pee all over the place.
Right now we are going through about 30 diapers a day. A whole can of powdered formula a day (to make about 24 - 30 bottles) and at least 9 outfits. That's 2 daytime outfits a day for us and one set of pj's. Sometimes we go through 2 or 3 sets of pj's though...depends on if we want to drive mommy crazy or not. We don't spit as much anymore which seems to be working for us. Usually if we're gonna spit we wait until mommy puts us in the carseat and gets us all strapped in. Then we all spit one by one so she has to take us out. But we don't do it much cuz it hurts. Everyone keeps asking mommy if she's having more babies and she keeps saying no but we don't know why. We'd love to have a little brother (or 3)! But she says she's done having babies and I guess we're ok with that because that means more attention for us. Well we have to go...daddy is on his way home and we want to be at the door to give him lots of kisses and hugs.

So we needed a break from mommy. She's suffocating us! Everytime we turn our heads there she is...kissing us, hugging us, feeding us or trying to make us laugh. So we went to visit grandma Lucco and Titi Rosemary yesterday for the day. We had so much fun! We got to play with Titi and Grandma. And even better was that we got to play with Bailey!!! He's their doggy. We love doggies but mommy says we can only have stuffed ones. She says she doesn't have time to walk the dog but we don't know why. What else is she doing? That's ok though. Daddy will buy us a doggy - we know cuz he told us he would. But it's a secret so don't tell mommy! Well we need to go take naps now. We like to sleep during the day and party at night.

This is our Grandpa Lucco. He comes over every Sunday and he brings dinner for mommy and daddy. We love it when he visits cuz he comes in and says "Ok! Grandpa's here! Where's my baby?!?!" And then he holds us all (one at a time of course cuz we don't like to share) and he keeps us nice and warm and he sings to us.
WE LOVE YOU GRANDPA!!!

Here's our Grampa Robbins. He lives in MA but we talk to him on the phone everyday. He made a surprise visit to see us last week and we all had a great time! We can't wait until we're old enough to go fishing with him...but he's going to have to touch the worms...cuz they're squirmy. We know cuz mommy calls us squirmy worms all the time.
WE LOVE YOU GRAMPA!!!

This is our cousin Christina. We haven't met her yet because she lives in VA with Auntie Amanda but we talk to her all the time on the web-cam. Mom sits us in front of the computer and we watch Christina dance and she sings to us. She's coming up in August because she's going to be Christened with us. It's very exciting...we can't wait to see her!!!! That's a pretty outfit she's wearing too. We are already fighting over who's going to get it when she outgrows it. Mom says we have to share but we don't like that word.
It's going to be a nice day today. Sunny and 77 degrees. We had plans to go to a friends house and play all day but mom is sick and we're going to stay home. We tried to make breakfast in bed for mommy but Emily ate it before we could get it upstairs so instead we're going to be extra good today. We're good everyday but today we decided we're not going to gang up on her and all want the same thing at the same time. We think mommy will appreciate that. Maybe she'll start feeling better and we'll all go for a walk later.

Great-Aunt Joan and Great-Uncle Al were here for a visit over the weekend. We were lucky enough to be able to see them and we loved every minute of it! Mom and dad took us over to grandma and granpa's house and we all had dinner and Auntie Stephanie and Titi Rosemary were there too! We took lots of pictures as usual cuz mom is always flashing the camera at us. We enjoyed the company and we loved being held. Especially Hannah...she fell asleep on Uncle Al and didn't want to wake up to let him go home. We can't wait to see them again!!!!
Ahhhh...we just love our family. We know we're so loved and we love all of them too. We especially love it that everyone tells us how cute we are. :-)

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there! We were very good for our mommy cuz it was her 1st mother's day and we know how special that is. Daddy bought mommy a heart shaped locket with a laser engraved picture of us on one side and him on the other and we gave it to mommy for mother's day. She loves it!

We took our blog back and told mom she can't rant anymore. It's not nice and if she wants to rant she needs to get her own blog. She's over it anyway...we told her what great parents we have and how much we love them.
Emily had another apnea episode last night. Mom realized there are more important things in life than worrying about what people think. She really gave mom a scare because it took longer to wake Emmie up than it has before. When the alram goes off - mom and dad go to Emmie and try to stimulate her but last night she didn't want to wake up. She is so lazy! We know this is something she'll outgrow but it's still very scary.
It's been raining the past couple days so we haven't been able to go for our walk outside. We told mom we wanted to walk cuz it's really good for us so we went mall walking today with grammy and mommy. Well...we tried anyway. Mom didn't anticipate all the people stopping to "take a look" at us. She gets annoyed sometimes but it's something she's going to have to get used to. She had 3 babies at one time and that's not something people are used to. Plus...we're so darn cute that of course people want to see us! We didn't get much walking in before mom called it quits and decided to take us to grammy and poppies house. We hung out there until daddy got out of work and then we came home. We like grammy and poppies cuz they have a cat and dog and we don't. Mom says that daddy has enough mouths to feed right now and we don't need any pets. Maybe one day we'll talk them into getting us a puppy!!!!!

This blog will be all about me, Hannah Maria Lucco. I was born at 2lbs 9oz. I have an older sister, Hailey and a younger sister, Emily. I've grown quite a bit since I was born...I'm now over 7lbs! I sleep in a crib with my sister Hailey but that's going to change soon because we move around too much now. Mom doesn't want us to bump into each other at night. Hailey and I are identical and although mom can tell us apart no problem - people that visit have a hard time. Mom has a plan to pierce our ears and put different color earrings in but we can't do that until we're 6 months old. I also have a skin tag on my left ear. Mom loves it, dad hates it. So they decided that I could make the decision on my own to have it removed or not...but not until I'm a teenager. I am very sweet and have a lovely personality. I love to sit and watch everything that's going on around me. I'm a thinker. I also love to be held. If I'm awake and there's someone here that's not holding me...I'll make sure they pick me up. I'm a mama's girl and sometimes I'll only eat if mommy feeds me. I also like my bottles warm. Not hot and not cold - just warm. If it's not warm...I'll wait until it is.
How did I get my name? Well mom and dad had a tough time choosing names. They wanted names that were pretty, couldn't be shortened, and that were also strong. So my first name is Hannah. My middle name is Maria - named after my great-grandmother Maria Baldeon. Mom tells me everyday what my middle name is because so many people call me "Hannah Banana". It's ok though...I know mom and dad wouldn't name me something silly like that. That's all for now. As I grow and get older - I'll be sure to keep everyone up to date on my progress. Mom says to tell everyone that she'll be sure Emily and Hailey post something about themselves...but another day. So I'm off for now - I need to eat, sleep and grow. It's a tough job being a baby!!!

We hung out with Jen and Christopher today and had a blast! We played with toys and went for a walk and then hung out outside and enjoyed the nice weather. We just love that we don't have to be stuck in the house all day long! Oh - we were good for mommy last night. We only woke up every 4 hours and we went right back to sleep after we were done eating. No spitting up or crying!!! Mommy gave us lots and lots of kisses for it! (we didn't think it was possible for her to kiss us any more than she already does!!!!) :-)

Mom and grandma have been taking all of us for walks during the day. Hannah gets to be in the snugglie with mommy & Emily and Hailey get to ride in the stroller. We walk all around the complex and over the bridge with the water. It's nice because we get to see all kinds of new things! We see squirrels, birds, cats, dogs, turtles, ducks, bunnies and so much more!!!!
Mom keeps telling us that we're getting bigger and bigger every day. We know it must be true because mom has a bunch of clothes that don't fit us anymore...and we don't fit into our premie clothes anymore either! We're trying! We eat a whole can of formula a day and we go through at least 24 bottles each day. Sometimes more if we want a snack or two.
We love to explore with our hands right now. We like reaching for things and feeling them although we're not sure exactly what we're doing yet. Emily lets us know how much she loves her food by cooing when she's eating. She also smiles a whole bunch now too. Mom and dad say we have our own personalities already. They say Hannah is the thinker because she looks like she's always thinking about something. Emily is the laid back one and Hailey is the trouble maker. They say it's a good thing that there are three of us because this way we can take care of each other! We like that there are 3 of us because we'll always have a friend and we'll always have someone to play with.
We miss having daddy home with us all day when he's at work but mom keeps saying "someone has to pay the bills and someone has to watch the girls!" But daddy calls during the day to make sure that mommy is playing with us and teaching us new things.
Well - mommy is getting sleepy so we have to put her to bed so she's not cranky tomorrow. We're going to try to let her get some sleep tonight. We woke her up every hour last night...hehe.
