New Toys and New Tricks

Katie and her new trick- walking with the shopping cart!

The countdown is on... in 11 days we will have 3 one year olds on our hands. I can't believe how quickly this year has gone by. I have only 15 work days left in the school year and then it's summer vacation! I can't wait. This year has tested us in ways that we never could have predicted, but it's definitely been worth it. I can't believe how much has changed since we went back to work in August!
This past weekend Pat and I took the kids to IKEA for a little outing. We wanted to go to Partridge Creek but it rained Friday and Saturday so an outdoor mall just didn't work out. IKEA was a hit though. All of the sights and sounds kept the trio entertained and we even got a couple new toys, a tunnel and a tent. The tunnel we set up in the basement play area but I think we're going to save the tent for when we play outside during the summer.




We've had some progress in the teeth department. Katie is now up to 8 teeth, Helena has 7 including one nasty molar that's been bothering her a bunch, Seamus is still sitting at 5. Speaking of Seamus he's learned a new trick too. You'll never guess what it is from his picture???? Yep, that's right he's learned to take his diaper off. Guess he'll be wearing onsies for the rest of his life! Or at least until he's potty trained or gets over this new FUN habit. He's also taken to chewing his crib so we went out today to get everyone crib guards. We'll see if they work. I have a feeling they're going to figure out how to pull them right off and we'll find them chewing them as well as their cribs!

Success! Pat calls this his Austin Powers shot!

that is great. I used Duct tape for the adventurous one. Just make sure that you put the seam in the back because they are smart.
