Our first carousel ride

Saturday we had a birthday party at the park, they had the carousel open for rides so the babies took their first carousel ride. Steven held Bryce and he just sat there not really upset or excited. I had Collin who never cried but had a worried look the whole time. Our friend Jamie attempted to put Addison on a horse but she wanted no part of it. I put her on a horse a little later and she was still pretty unsure about it but we got the picture! We eventually just rode on the bench!
Thanks Jamie!
Happy Birthday Colt! We had a great time at your party!

Three babies and a snowman

The babies are only 8 months old and they have seen snow twice in Brenham, TX! Today it snowed really hard from about 2:30-6:00 so we had enough snow to build a snowman. We didn't want to keep the babies out in the snow too long so its not a fancy snowman and this is Texas so he is also made with dead grass. Addison and Collin seemed to like the snow, Addison was all smiles and talking. Bryce was not too impressed, I think he would have prefered a bottle in the warm house!

Bryce wasn't a fan of the stroller but Addison and Collin were happy!

Time to baby proof the house!

Collin started crawling today for the first time! He started getting on his knees about a month ago and would rock back and forth but would usually end up lunging forward head first. Within the last week or two he started moving his hands or knees but not at the same time so today he finally figured out how to make it work. He still wobbles a little and will only take a few "steps" forward and then loses his balance but we predict it will only take a week of practice before he is taking off and we are wondering where he is at? 
I have video too but I will have to figure out how to download it to my computer!

The things Momma does to keep us entertained!

We haven't been out of the house much since the weather has been so cold and yucky so keeping three babies entertained inside the house has become somewhat of a challenge. All three have had moments where they just want to be held and with only two hands it can make it difficult to hold babies and actually get something done. Yesterday Addison and Collin were in their moods about the time I was trying to make bottles and formula so I came up with a creative new way to keep them entertained and by my side.

(I promise I cleaned and dried the sink before putting them in there)
They made fun noises with their spoons and the stainless steal sink and it was a whole new area for them to figure out. Luckily they aren't strong enough to turn on the water yet.
Now that they scoot all over the place this was another way I contained them to one place!

8 Months Old

Now that the babies are moving around more it was a little difficult to get my usual picture of all three together. The collage below is just a sample of the pictures we got in our photo shoot.
This was one of the few we had of all three looking at the camera!

-is very ticklish
-loves to look in the mirror and laugh
-has 4 teeth (2 on top and 2 on bottom)
-can get on his knees and rock (it won't be long before he's crawling)
-is a great eater but can be picky (peas are definitely not his favorite)
You can see his bottom teeth and if you look close you can see his top teeth too

-loves to look in the mirror and laugh
-is a stubborn eater, if she doesn't like it she locks her lips and refuses to eat
-can get on her knees and rock (it won't be long before she's crawling)
-has 2 teeth on the bottom
-can sit up all by herself

You can see her bottom two teeth in the picture below

-loves to look in the mirror and laugh
-will eat anything!
-loves to suck on his fingers
-loves to be outside or look outside
-can sit up all by himself
-is rolling over like a champ but still not the biggest fan of being on his tummy
-no longer our fussy boy (unless he's hungry or tired), he's usually pretty happy, smiling and laughing

I love it when ....
...they laugh, there is nothing better than a baby's laugh.
...they look at each other and smile, talk or laugh.
...they touch each others face trying to figure out if there's really three babies in this house.
...they get so excited to see you in the morning.
...they get so happy splashing around in the bath tub.
...they cuddle with me and let me rock them.
...they sleep through the night, which is getting a little better (more good than bad nights here lately).
...they play on the floor with their toys, they've learned how to pull every toy out of the basket!
