Pumpkin Patch

Today we went to the pumpkin patch to pick out our pumpkins. Sean loved it, since he loves being outside. Aidan we think ate some clovers that were next to the pumpkins, since he puts everything in his mouth. Tara was not sure, she is not a big fan of sitting on grass. Over all it was a good day.


The babies have been very busy lately and it is time for me to update what is going on with us. It is hard to believe that they are going to be one years old in 11 days. Ruairi and I have almost survived a year with triplets.
Everyone is now crawling, Sean just started to really take off last week. I had to take him to physical therapy because he was not crawling nor would he pull himself to a sitting position. Sean must not like going to PT because the next couple of days he became a crawling champ. He is also starting to pull himself to a standing position.

Aidan and Tara have mastered the stairs. They love going up the stairs. We have to have a gate in front of the stairs at all time, because they will make a mad dash for the stairs if it is left open.

Aidan is the clown. Here he is is covering his ears.

Sean finally went for his first hair cut. His hair was starting to get out of control. Sean did really good getting his hair cut. He did move his head around, but did not cry.

This fall Grandpa tried to get the babies to cut wood with him, but the babies really are not good workers. I think Grandma and Grandpa will have enough wood for the winter.

Moving onto Milk

The babies are now done with formula and moving onto milk. Tonight they had their first bottle of milk and did great. I don't think that they even noticed that their bottles were missing formula. I am so excited that I no longer have to make formula, but it makes me sad that my babies are growing up. The babies will be 1 in 3 weeks. It is hard to believe that they are going to be 1, where has the time gone?? If anyone is thinking of a birthday present for the babies, an organic cow would be very handy. If they go through milk like they did formula I think it would be cheaper to have our own cow.

With new teeth comes biting. The babies love to eat cheerios, crackers, cheese, and the teething crackers, with their new teeth. But, Aidan has found something else he would like to chew on. His new chew toy is the crib. I went to put him down for a nap the other day, and noticed all of the little bite marks on the railing along with the paint chips in his mouth. Aidan has learned to stand up in his crib, but he does not know how to get him self down. So while he is waiting for me to come and rescue him he has taken bites out of the crib. I had to go out yesterday and get teething rails. So far the babies do not bite each other, but I am sure that day is going to come.
