When you have one baby at a time, I just can't imagine you can keep up with exactly who did what and at a certain age. It's amazing to watch the kids develop at different rates. The doctor told us early to not compare them because they would develop at different rates, and it's happening. We see little things that occur and each one is doing something at a different time. Right now, Squeaky is so close to walking, Blondie is just starting to stand on her own and Little Man seems to have no interest in any of that. It would be hard to remember this if they were different ages and we wouldn't see how differences occur as each one grows.

Not You Too

Oh no. We now think Blondie has started biting too. Squeaky has a place on the back of her hand.

Chomp Chomp

Squeaky has started biting others. We noticed teeth prints on one of Little Man's hands. We wondered who did it and why we didn't hear screaming when it happened. Later the same day, when Squeaky and Little Man were standing beside each other, she leaned over and tried to bite his arm. It doesn't seem like she's doing to be mean. Since then she's also tried biting us. It seems like she's doing it in play, but we've got to put a stop to it.

On The Verge Of Walking?

Could Squeaky be on the verge of walking? When she pulls up on something, she lets go and stands for as long as she can. Then she just plops down and laughs.

Sniff Sniff

Who gets the sniffles in the middle of summer? Kids, that's who. All 3 are snotty and it's no fun. At least all 3 have gotten sick closer together so maybe it won't last for 2 complete weeks.

Copy Cats

The kids are really starting to copy us and each other. It's something to watch how quickly they can pick up an action and mimic us. Interesting and a bit scary at the same time.

Sippy Cups

We've been trying to transition the kids to sippy cups from bottles. It's been a slow process. They drink juice well from a sippy cup, but they don't do well with milk from one. No difference in the cup, just the contents. We can't figure it out. We just keep being patient and try to help them get used to milk from the cup.

Oh, the mysteries of parenthood.

Church Directory Photos

This past Saturday, we went to church for the directory photo. Things went surprisingly well during the photo taking time. The kids didn't start to get bored until we sat down to look at the photos. Squeaky was wiggling so much we could barely hold her. Little Man was trying to grap everything within reach. Blondie was the best one. She just sat and took everything in.

During this "unruly time", the photographer wanted us to give her a list of people that would like to have a photo. This was just a ploy so she could say "You need to order X number of photos for everyone". The father just said "How about giving us a price list and we'll decide on how many and what size". That seemed to be the simplest solution. That didn't work for the photographer. She started in with "Well, if you order more photos, you get a bigger discount". Blah, blah, blah. Either she doesn't have kids or couldn't see the impatience of our kids. It didn't take long for us to grow impatient too. Why couldn't they just give us what we wanted rather then making us sit there and listen to a sales pitch? Is it just me to think this would have been easier? It was like trying to control animals without a cage while listening to a lecture.

A Week With No Posts?

Where has time gone? A week has flown by and we haven't added anything to the site.

Taste Testing

Why does everything have to go into the mouth except for new food items? We've been trying all kinds of new self-feeding things and the kids seem to be very cautious about putting them in their mouths and tasting them. This isn't the case though with every toy, stuffed animal, piece of clothing, etc. that they come across. They like to touch, poke at and throw the new foods onto the floor, but it takes a while for them to warm to the idea of eating them.

I Feel Like A Diaper

Yesterday wasn't the best day for me. Everyone decided to wet me, and worse (you know what I mean), when I was changing their diapers yesterday. I think I had a total of 4 "accidents" happen to, um , I really mean on, me. That must be some type of record.

PC Problems

We've been having with the computer at home so the number of posts has been limited lately.
