The boys are triplets today! That's what Phil and I call it when we dress them alike : )
Thomas is so funny!
Do toddlers this age really play? Since having kids I've realized they don't really play, instead they destroy, destroy, destroy!!! Or to put it nicely I'll call it deconstructive play. They stomp, chew, bang drop, rip and throw whatever they get their hands on. While the babies nap I clear all the toys off the floor and put them away so that I can sweep up the floors. When they get up it only takes them about 5 minutes for the toys to be spread all throughout the living room again. We can see the second law of thermodynamics at work in this house, entropy at it's best! But the other day I actually got Eli interested in some constructive play. The novelty only lasted a few minutes but I got him to stack his blocks!
We had an adventurous Saturday, we had no plans but wanted to take advantage of the warm sunny weather, and by warm I mean mid 50's. Sadly we forgot the camera so I have no pictures to document it. We first headed to Forest Park and went on a short hike, we turned around when the terrain got too rough and steep for the stroller. Next we headed for a nearby neighborhood to take a walk and we ran into some friends that have a little boy close to the age of our trio. After walking and chatting for a bit we swung by a friends house to see their newborn baby boy (the same friend I threw the baby shower for). He was only 2.5 weeks old and oh so cute! I must add that even though he was so precious and sweet I realized that I SOOOO do not miss having newborns. The very thought of being pregnant again even with one baby makes me cringe! Whenever I get some random 'pregnancy' symptom a wave of shear panic and desperation runs through my body. Thankfully the boys are old enough that I don't have to worry about Irish quadruplets any more, 4 kids under the age of two, no thank you! Lets just say we are more than content with our three : )
