We are still trying to get used to having 3 and our baby is now 1!! Our boys are 5, 3 and 1 (the 5 year old will be 6 in September); for us it has been a battle not being able to give enough individual attention to our boys, instead it's like half attention for all of them but most for the baby. For the first few months my husband took over bedtime for our older boys, now they are all mostly going to bed around the same time so we can combine bath/bedtime sometimes which is nice; for me it's been weird feeling like I'm not able to give each one what they need/want from me even though I'm a SAHM. It is hard getting all 3 ready to go somewhere by myself, even a "simple" outing requires preplanning and prepacking but everyone's in a happier mood if we have an outing (park, library, store). I think we are finally getting into the groove of it!
