Year to late update

So clearly I have not done very well at this blogging thing.  Who has time to write when you are constantly chasing children and snapping pictures all the time?  Anyway, I thought I would try and give it a shot again, because it really is a great way for people to keep up with what is going on. The twins are now 2 1/2 and little man is 16 months.  It is crazy how time is flying by.

The girls are definitely coming into their own personalities and starting to assert their independence, while little man has finally started walking, at about 15 months, and just smiles and laughs all the time.

Favorite sayings from the last few weeks:
Diva - "I love you so much." (brings tears to my eyes)
              "I not too heavy mom, I little." (in response to me telling her she was getting too heavy to carry)
Drama Queen - "That's not a dinglehopper, that's a fork." (while watching the little mermaid)
                "I want to be a pink fuzzy pumpkin." (in response to my question of what do you want to be for Halloween)
Little Man - "I did it." (after sliding down the slide on his tummy)
                    "I don't know." (anytime you ask him where something is)

Favorite Activities:
Everyone loves going on walks and seeing all the birds, ducks, and especially the moon.
The girls are in love with buses and call the short one 'baby buses.'  They actually call anything small a baby one, and anything larger a mommy one.  They love stickers and coloring and Diva especially loves the iPad, when she is allowed to use it.
Little Man loves throwing a ball and dancing.  We went to a wedding this past weekend, and he stayed on the dance floor.

Life with 3 under 3 (ha that could be a tv show!) is fun and exciting and challenging.  Everyone is getting bigger and a bit clingy so explaining to one that I can't hold them right now because I have a sibling is difficult mentally and emotionally.  The blessings are immeasureable though, and I cannot thank God enough for entrusting me to raise these 3 amazing children.

No word yet on number 4, we are still discussing this option. Ha!
