Monkey Butts!

There is NEVER a dull moment in our home. I'm pretty good at catching the boys being monkeys on camera, but there are so many other events that I miss. Here are a few pics of the boys being...well...boys!

Climbing on the table and chair to get into trouble!

A Tupperware explosion!

Spitting their milk in to another container..this is an ongoing battle we have. For whatever reason, they love to spit out their milk. Fabulous.

Our first stomach flu :(

We have been so lucky with the boys getting sick. They have only ever had 1 cold. We had the whole Salmonella experience but other then that, and a few odd fevers, they have been pretty healthy. Until this night. Kennedy started with the stomach flu first. I will spare you all the details, but it was the saddest thing. He was so scared right before he got sick. It broke my heart. Dylan started the next day. It lasted about 3 days total and we all got zero sleep. Emma was such a trooper through it all. She was OK sleeping in her basinette so Momma could take care of the boys. I did capture a few pics through it. Here is one pic of the boys cuddling with Daddy D. There are also a couple bath pics. I made the boys homemade Gatorade Popsicle's and let them eat them in the bath. They weren't too crazy about them...they don't like eating cold things. I know its inevitable that they will get sick like this again..I just hope its not for a long, long time. Oh...and Emma and I didn't catch it! I think Emma was safe because she is still exclusively nursing, and I took Coconut Oil and Organic Manuka honey when I felt it coming on, and I didn't actually get sick. Amazing!

Homemade Play Doh!

What better way to spend a chilly February night, then to make some homemade Play Doh with the boys. I used the recipe here and it was very easy and fast to make. The boys liked it alright. They enjoyed eating it which made me sick to my stomach because it is so salty! They didn't mind though. We also made a hand print each to keep. They also enjoyed putting it back in the storage containers and passing them back and forth. Tons of fun!

We took all 3 babies to get vaccinated last night. It went pretty good. It took about 2 1/2 hours for them to get everything done. While we were waiting Dallas, Emma and I were sitting on a couple chairs (I was wearing Emma in the Moby) and the boys were leaning against a coffee table.Dylan was trying so hard to climb up onto the table but he couldn't quite reach. Big brother Kennedy grabbed Dylan's bum and gave him a boost so he could get up! Then Kennedy joined him of course! I swear to you...these boys are giving me grey hairs already!

Emma 2 month stats...
Weight  13lbs 11oz
Height  23"

Kennedy 19 month stats...
Weight 28lbs 4oz
Height 32 1/4"

Dylan 19 month stats...
Weight 27lbs 12oz
Height 32 1/4"

Here is a recent pic of all 3 of our beautiful babies!

Here is a pic of Emma in the Moby...a Moby is a cloth wrap that you  use to wear your baby. I use the Moby daily with Emma. When she is fussy or when I need my 2 hands I put her in the Moby and she usually falls asleep instantly. We also use it when we go out. Emma doesn't have an infant car seat...she has a 3in1 that stays in the car so I wear her in the Moby. I LOVE it...and I wish I had one when the boys were little. You can actually put 2 babies in it. I have used the Moby with Dylan the other day. Its good for up to 35lbs!
