Last day of January 2010!

What on earth are Uncle Joey & Emily doing that is soooo much fun?!?!


I've been posting pics of the girls everyday but not really giving much of an update on how they're doing. Right now - they're all sick. But that's nothing unusual these days right? It's the winter - and one must expect to have colds and runny noses galore running rampant around these parts with the trio. But aside from the snot, cough, fevers, croup and so on...they're doing quite well.

They're all finally over 20lbs - we'll have more of an accurate weight on each of when they see they go for their well baby visit in March. And they're tall! I feel like we just bought them shoes and already it's time to buy new ones because they're quickly outgrowing these.

They all still wear different sizes and yet I insist on squeezing Emily into something too small or throwing something on Hailey that's too big - just to change them 15 minutes later.'s like she fits into anything.

Words - hmmm...language is getting there. They speak - don't get me wrong. They love to babble away. But 1/2 in English and 1/2 in Spanish. So it'll mostly sound something like 'Este no!' or 'shoes aqui'. And we're at the point where we know they're asking for something specific but because we don't understand them it's quite frustrating at times. We'll get there. We're working on 'show me' so we can have some peace around here.

Best things we've taught them that make our lives easier these days? How to climb up and slide down the stairs goes on the top of the list. They were doing stairs before they were even walking and to this day it's been great. With 3 floors in our house - this has made life much easier. 2nd has to go to saying 'please'. It has made them take a moment to think about what they want and how to ask for it which in turn has eliminated a lot of whining and crying in the process. I think 3rd place would have to go to Titi and teaching them how to put their jackets on. They don't always do it themselves but they CAN and that's been a big help.

Food - the only thing we haven't really given them is fresh strawberries and we'll be doing that soon enough. The love to eat. Hailey eats the most but takes the longest to eat. Hannah & Hailey are really good about trying new foods. Emily has to be offered something 8 - 10 times before she'll even try it! They love fruit and meat and they also like lollipops ;-)

They LOVE music. They will dance and sing to anything that has a beat to it and there's not a day that goes by when we don't have music playing in the house. They also like Sesame Street and love to see Elmo and Big Bird. We limit their TV (I don't like it at all - Pete likes it but knows the importance of limiting screen time).

They have babies they take everywhere and if I had to choose a favorite toy for each of them - hands down it would be their cell phones. They each have 'real' cell phones that are no longer connected and the absolutely love to 'talk on the phone'. They are girls after all.

Sleep is still good (when they're not sick). They still take a 2 - 3 hour nap each day and sleep about 11 hours at night. They usually are in bed by 7 and up by 6 or 7 the next morning. Naps are usually between 11 and 12. They still go to bed with no problem (again...if they're not sick).
We still don't have blankets and pillows in their cribs and I'm not sure when we'll do that but I'm just not ready yet. I'm thinking maybe when we switch them over to toddler beds.

They love each other like sisters. They fight like crazy and defend each other like I've never seen. The tell on each other ('Uh oh - Emmie!') and they also conspire against mommy & daddy.

They are the best soon-to-be 2 year old toddlers ever. And we love them with all our hearts.

Our Room - Jan 24

Here's a look at our bedroom! We each have a Name 'Street' sign over our cribs and a name poem. We each also have a 2008 penny (the year we were born). Hailey & Emily sleep on the same side of the room while Hannah sleeps on the other. We don't switch cribs and we don't play in our room either. It's just for sleeping and that's it.

21 days into it - and I've forgotten to take a pic of the girls twice now. Last time I went and took a pic of them sleeping...but I'm not chancing waking them up tonight. So here's a pic of them sleeping yesterday in the car. They are finally forward facing in the car which just happened last weekend.

Jan 20 and 1ST DENTAL VISIT!!!

We went to the dentist for the 1st time today. It was so much fun! The dentist cleaned and scrubed and scraped our teeth and we just sat there like little angels. Oh and she told us we can't eat raisins anymore. That's a bummer cuz we love raisins. But oh well - we'll find something else to eat. But we love our new dentist and we can't wait to go back!

Tomorrow is a big day for us. We're going to see the dentist for the 1st time. Not sure if mommy & daddy are late with this visit...we'll be 2 next month. Don't kids usually see the dentist before that?!?! Well - we just hope the dentist tells us we're doing a great job brushing our teeth every night. We'll let you know how it goes.

Prince Connor

Prince Connor came for a visit a couple weeks ago. We didn't put the pics up on the blog because we knew that today would be a better day for him to make his appearance here. Why? His mommy is going back to work today...and we just wanted to remind her with these pictures that Prince Connor will be just fine in his new daycare. He'll have lots of friends to play with - look how much he's loving all the attention at our house! He told us he needs a break from her anyway. He said as much as he loves her - he needs to be with some friends his own age so they can understand his baby babble.
So here's to your 1st day in your new daycare Prince Connor! Make sure you tell us all about how much fun you had and all the new friends you made!!!!!!!
Hannah, Hailey & Emily
