17 & 18 Months Old

Since I never made a post with the triplets 17 Month Old picture I decided I would just combined it with their 18 Month post.

Addison, Bryce and Collin are very busy 18 month olds. They love to watch out the window when someone is coming to the door or leaving. They understand a lot and will go get things we ask for like a ball, blanket, pillow, baby, etc. They will make sounds like a puppy dog, choo choo, moo cow, and baa like a goat. They can say a few words like bye bye, Daddy, Mama, and sometimes no but mostly still babble or talk in their own language. They play well together if Mommy and Daddy aren't in the room, if we are around they are fighting over our attention!  

-is very strong willed and will throw a fit if things don't go her way!
-loves girly things and sports her bracelets and purse like she is a princess
-clings to Mommy and sometimes Daddy in places with a lot of people
-loves books
-loves her blankets and will carry them around not letting go even if she is doing other things
-will help gather things like bottles

-weighs 27lbs (I only know his because he went to the doctor this week)
-loves when his Daddy tickles his tummy
-will hide and sit really quiet and still so he can't be found
-is usually the first to wake up
-is very easy going and will go with the flow

-will sit and try to put his pants, shoes, and socks on all by himself. Even Mommy, Daddy and Addison's shoes.
-is very mean to Bryce and Addison and will hit, kick, bite, and pull them down to the floor.
-likes to say Daddy
-is so cute shaking his finger "no"
-likes to make others laugh

Christmas Decorations

This year I have been looking forward to Christmas and how excited the babies would be when they saw the lights and Santa and all the presents under the tree. I was so excited I got out the Christmas decorations the week before Thanksgiving. I have gone all out and decorated a little in each room thinking the babies would be in awe of the lights and sparkle but much to my disappointment they pay very little attention to it (which is probably best). In reality they are still not going to realize that Santa came and left their presents under the tree, the boxes and paper will be more fun than the actual gifts and you saw their reaction to Santa but none the less I've tried to make it special!
The Christmas Tree in our living room. 
We put this gate around the tree to keep the babies from getting to the tree, its not pretty but it works!
The wreath I made out of coffee filters (with help from Shelby and Robyn)
I also made this JOY banner from hymnal pages
and put this wreath together!
Now the stress of finding the perfect gift for everyone on our list!

Santa Pictures

Saturday we took the babies downtown to see Santa and lets just say they weren't too fond of the white bearded man in the red suit! I kind of expected the tears and screaming so that didn't bother me but it drives me crazy that they put their hands in their mouth anytime we try to get pictures! Like my friend Jamie says, maybe next year!
Addison immediately didn't want anything to do with Santa. Bryce and Collin took a good look and then decided they didn't want to sit with Santa either!
At least we got everyone looking at the camera!
Before seeing Santa we attempted a family picture!
After we saw Santa we walked around downtown and let the babies get out some energy. We thought the downtown Christmas tree would be a good photo opportunity but they were having too much fun to sit still for a picture.

Bryce throwing the tree ornaments, he thought they were balls, thank goodness they were shatter proof!
Collin looks sad but he had fun!

Bryce's first haircut

Bryce was in desperate need of a hair cut. As Valerie combed it out it was so long it covered his ears. I had her leave a few of the curls in the back because I just couldn't part with them yet but he doesn't look shaggy anymore. He did so well and sat in the chair all by himself like a big boy and didn't cry once. Afterwards he loved all the attention from the ladies, helped sweep, watch mommy get her hair washed and cut, and of course got a special treat for being such a good boy.  

This was the best before picture I got
What is she doing mommy!
Loving the attention!
Such a big boy, sitting still and watching in the mirror
All done, do I look handsome?

Celebrating two special occasions!

Saturday, November 6th we celebrated my Grandpa Wilde's 85th birthday and Monday, November 8th was Grandma and Grandpa Wilde's 60th wedding anniversary which we celebrated Sunday. These are two very special milestones and it was wonderful to celebrate with them.
The birthday boy!
The happy couple!

Cousin Tegan wanted to take a picture with Addison, Addison wasn't too excited about it!

Quack! Quack! Quack!

For Halloween I wasn't sure what the babies costumes were going to be, at first I thought they could be farm animals and each be something different. I ordered a duck costume and was trying to figure out what the other two could be. When the duck costume came in I decided they all needed to be ducks, it was just too cute. I also thought I will only have a couple of years that I can dress them all three alike before they have a say in the costumes so that made up my mind and ducks they were! I have to say I think they were pretty cute ducks too! We had a long day Sunday trick or treating most of the afternoon and then a halloween party that evening and trick or treating with friends.

The next stop was Aunt Dee's by this time the babies were in a mood and this was our best attempt at a picture of the cousins in their costumes.

That evening the Maxwell's invited us over for a halloween party and for all the kiddos to go trick or treating. We had a great time even though the babies were not really into the trick or treating it was fun hanging out with friends. We made it several blocks and by the time we got to Grandpa's house the babies and Mommy and Daddy were done! We stopped there and came back with our car to pick up the babies and our wagon.

Two of the ducks decided they didn't want to ride in the wagon so Daddy walked with them.
