At the zoo. Miles is the one coming towards me, with that totally Miles look. Note that all three are carrying DVDs around. And that Linus is really wearing green (Oliver's color) and Oliver is wearing blue (Linus's color.) They are just *so* two.
Linus getting his nightly breathing treatment with Daddy. And the Cat in the Hat DVD.
Oliver, giggling. No way am I going to be able to take a picture of all three kids every day, so I'm not even going to try. But I figured I should at least start off with a happy picture, don't you agree?
My little business man in his jammies and tie, carrying around his important documents.
Miles is incapable of eating yogurt neatly. Oliver, who is a bit more fastidious, kept saying "Miles yogurt mess" (though not quite so intelligibly.)
Two years and one month.
A little bit of brotherly love. Linus and Oliver holding hands at the aquarium. And yes, they do own other clothes, but these sweaters were still clean from yesterday...
Miles of smiles….
Now we just need to get rid of the pacifiers, but I’m not quite ready for the hours and hours of screaming this is going to entail.
Linus in his blue jacket with his blue eyes. I still wonder...how in the world did I end up with blue-eyed children? (No genetics lesson needed, I know...but still, it's weird!)
Linus and his wand at David's 7th birthday party
Linus coloring (or "cuh-nuh-nuh" as the boys say.) One of their favorite things to do. One of my least favorite is picking up the millions of crayon pieces that litter the playroom floor.
Proof that vegetables are, indeed, occasionally ingested by the toddlers. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes.
The DVD cases never leave their side when they're at home (they even sleep with them) but they know that they have to give them up as soon as they walk in the door to daycare. Same with binkies. Why can't it be that easy for me?
Is it cheating if I didn't take the picture? Never mind. George got this one of me and Oliver looking at me and Linus snuggled up to me.
Somehow the shirt seems appropriate while Grandpa is showing Linus how to ride his new tricycle. Today was Christmas at Granny and Grandpas, and everyone made out like bandits. Fun!
The Binky Bowl.
Up to no good, those two...even the choo-choo on the TV seems to agree...(that's Miles and Linus, for the record.)
While the kids are away, Mom will play...(Super Mario Bros, mostly.)
Linus, my little duck.
Took the boys to a sports superstore today to get them Saints t-shirts. (Yes, we're fair weather fans.) They loved looking at the shoes most of all.
Chloe and Miles...she is always kissing this boy! This isn't the first time, either. Love that girl.
We're cloning Saints fans. Har har har!
I call this one "Mother of the Year." Because as Miles was expressing his fear of the cat (who was on the other side of the room and not remotely interested in any of the kids) I was taking this picture of him. Don't worry, I picked him up right after this.
The good thing about spending the weekend at Ren's house (with her two daughters, it's an all-female house) is that the boys have a chance to get in touch with their feminine sides.
Our friend Lindsay came over tonight so I could help her put together her wedding invitations, and the boys couldn't resist showing off for her. Miles is dancing for her here. Or hopping. One of the two. He's such a ham!
Miles builds a tower at Grandee's house, and there aren't any brothers around to knock it down. I brought Miles to my mom's while the other two are at George's parents' house. Thought a little one-on-one time would be nice.
How many kids do I have? 3 or 4? Sometimes I can't remember...
Love fat little pizza-covered toddler hands. Awww!
Score! Bought all this at the Children's Place for the boys for next winter. 27 pairs of pants, 15 shirts, and 2 winter coats (that will probably be returned because, well, there were only two.) Everything except the jackets was $2.99 each!
Roughhousing with Daddy. I got this shot in right as Linus was kicking him in the face. Ha ha ha! Action shot!
Linus is getting geared up for Mardi Gras. I don't know where he even found those beads, they're from their birthday party, but what can I say? I have little New Orleans boys!
And to think I was worried the boys would be shy around Aunt Kiki. In fact, we may have the opposite problem...
26 months old! (Or, 2 years and 2 months. Whatever.)
Kiki and Uncle Mike playing with the boys. The boys had so much fun with them before bedtime that they were just devastated to have to say goodnight. I'll bet tomorrow morning is going to be cute when they see that their playmates are still here.
The boys made quick friends with this family when we went to lunch today. They were all eager to show her which DVDs they were carrying around.
I wish I could have truly captured the atmosphere in the room at this moment, but it is impossible without sound. But it was incredible.
This child is pure mischief. Can you guess who it is?
Daddy and his three sleepy boys before bedtime.
Awwww, so sweet! That's Linus saying goodnight to Daddy.
It has to be said, one of the best things about having triplets is all the loot you get at Mardi Gras. The boys got a ton of stuffed animals (which are highly sought-after) at the parade today and Oliver was trying to hold them all.
Oliver, feeding Ernie some of his milk. Sweet boy!
Linus wears Daddy's cap at the pub.
Miles gets his Mardi Gras on.
Daddy reading to Miles tonight. I got a new Canon 40D (well, new to me - it was used) today and I was just playing around with it.
It's not enough to hold the DVD cases anymore. Now it is necessary to remove the cover from the case, and then beg Mommy or Daddy to "fiss it". Over and over and over and over again. Yow.
Another motion picture. This one of my little dancer, Miles.
Oliver (foreground) watching my mom and Larry feed the fish in the pond behind their house. Hmm. Fish theme this weekend. Weird.
