Three sick babies + one sick mama = lots and lots of DVDs today!

We'll be back when we are feeling better!

Water Everywhere

A few days ago we had a warmish day, so I decided to try out the new outdoor activity table by filling up the water side and letting the babies have at it.

They absolutely loved it!

But I may have added a little too much water - next time I will unrobe them first!

Thank you

Kate's favorite thing to say right now is "thank you" (pronounced "tank u") We've been working on it for awhile. Every time we hand her something we say "thank you" in an effort to demonstrate to her that this is the proper thing to say when some one gives you something. Kate, however - being way too clever - took it to mean that this is what you say any time you hand something to someone. So now she follows me around the house saying "thank you, thank you" trying to hand me toys or shoes or anything else she found on the floor.

Smouldering eyes ...

Here is another one of Oliver's ladykiller looks ...

Here is a recent picture capturing one of the many (and I mean MANY) little tantrums that Kate throws throughout the course of a day.

Every time that child bumps into something, drops a toy, is given the WRONG thing to eat, or heaven forbid, I look at her funny, she gets hysterical. Lots of tears and screeching ensue. For about a minute and a half, and then she forgets everything and goes on her way. Of the triplets, she is the quickest to tears, but also the quickest to laughter.

Many people have warned me that having girls in the house will bring lots of drama and emotion into our lives, and even at 18 months I can see such a huge difference between the girls and the boys. Evan and Oliver could not be happier and more laid back. Easy! Kate and Willa - oh Lord, we are really in for it in ten years!

Hair Cut

I finally broke down and gave the girls' hair a trim over the weekend - they were looking so scraggly.

Willa had the most chopped off - I tried to give her a little bob. I think it suits her.

With Kate, I just trimmed her bangs out of her eyes - I couldn't bring myself to cut off her curls. I hope they last.

I cut Evan's hair myself until he was four. After a particularly bad cut I swore never again - I don't want to put this kid in therapy. I can't imagine taking all three little ones into a salon, but I guess I'll do it. Poor little Oliver doesn't have enough hair to cut yet!
