FUNNY FACE...(Pic)

Here is our local comedian...Phoenix...for some reason she makes some of the funniest faces when the red light pops up on the camera...hope you enjoy them as much as I do...(No captions...they are all self explanatory...) EnJoY...

No babies were harmed during this photo session...every face given was done without any noise from her (Even though she looks like she is crying or screaming none of that happened)...

Three babies in a TUB...(Pic)

Sick babies are NO FUN...this past Sunday the puke hit the fan in this house. It all started Saturday morning...Phoenix was COVERED in puke when she was removed from her crib in the morning...it was EVERYWHERE...she later threw up again all over grandma (thankfully it wasn't me...thanx mom)...Nix managed to keep it down for the most part for the rest of the evening except at dinner...yup it happened again...well they all went to bed pretty easily...I thought it might all be over...HA. The next day (Sunday) the flood gates opened up...morning started off ok...nobody seemed too hungry...lunch was the same way. Then BAM like a wave from about 3:00pm till 8:00pm we had 8 separate puking episodes. It was AWFUL...the puking was done by Monday but they were VERY crabby and tired all day long...who could blame them...we did have some casualties of war...we now have no carpet left on our main floor none of it made out alive...we did 5 loads of laundry, as soon as I would clean up one mess and put it all in the wash a new mess "ERUPTED"...
-
The total tallies:
Phoenix: 4 times
Rogue: 4 times
Jade: 3 times

After a puking episode by two of them we put them in the tub...time for mommy and daddy to RELAX...
It always looks funny when lil Jade is standing...like she shouldn't be able to...sooo small.
Rogue, Phoenix, and Jade

I see someone...how do you match up?(Pic)

How long does it take you to get your family ready? Well the wife and I have been trying to best our times with every trip we take...we now have it down to 30 minutes on the button...here is what we successfully did in that 30 minute segment:
-Woke up all three babies from nap-CHECK
-Changed all three diapers-CHECK
-Fed all three of them dinner (Pizza, green beans, crackers, and cheese)-CHECK
-Cleaned up after dinner-CHECK
-Changed all three into pajamas-CHECK
-Put all three in their carriers-CHECK
-Packed them into the van-CHECK
-Grabbed diaper bag-CHECK
-Didn't forget anything-CHECK
-
We were impressed with ourselves that we can do all that in 30 minutes...yes this was a pat on our own back post hope you liked it...how do you match up?
-
I think I see something....


Told ya...silly grandma...

Food is FUN...(Pic)

Feeding time is always an experience...sometimes the girls are eager for the food and sometimes they down right hate the fact they have to sit in their chairs to eat. It is sadly a VERY stressful time for me and the wife...we have to dig down deep to muster up some massive amounts of patience...PATIENCE...yup I hate that word too...in this digital age of gotta have/gonna have it now we have to re-learn the age old idea of patience. Here are some of the things we have to referee during the feeding...(This is only a piece of a very LONG list...)
#1 issue is Rogue and Phoenix picking on the middle lady (Jade), they are constantly grabbing her bib or arms or going so far as stealing her food or sippy.
#2 flying food...yup you heard me...one kid eating = messy...three kids eating = GINORMOUS MESS.
#3 Deciding what to feed them...trying to think of food that isn't TOO messy is a LOT harder than I though it would be...
#4 Sitting with them when they are crabby or don't want to eat...
#5 Dealing with our stubborn eater (since birth) JADE. She has had food issues since day one...meds have been used to help with her reflux but she still isn't a big fan of food.
#6 Dealing with food that isn't received well...or in other words food the girls think tastes like boo boo...
#7 Trying to figure out how food gets on the back of their heads or heck how does Jade get whole uneaten cheerios inside of her diaper (Fully clothed...diaper, onesie, long sleeve shirt, and bib)...
#8 Last but not least CLEAN UP...grrr I hate it (better than it was now that we have the activity table)...still a pain in the butt...not my idea of a good time...

Here are a few pictures of some of the enjoyable moments...

The line up...hey Rogue I think you have something on your face...

How do people with kids NOT have dogs? (Video)

Dogs are AWESOME...loved them before we had kids and LOVE them that much more now that we have kids...I feel bad for families who have infants without dogs...Dogs are the BEST food cleanup crew money can buy. As soon as the girls sit in there seats for dinner the dogs are quick to follow as they sit patiently under the table waiting for any tiny morsel to fall to the ground. Daisy, our boxer, has learned that her EXTRA EXTRA LONG tongue can be used to clean the girls off through their leg holes of their chairs...first time I saw it I didn't know what was going on...Rogue just started to giggle out of nowhere...so here are couple videos...ENJOY

FIRST...

The wife and I have been talking lately about the girls developement...we were told that the girls will need to be graded by their adjusted age, AKA 2 months younger than when they were boring...for example they are currently 11 months old so developmentally 9 months old. We have come to the conclusion that this may be a bit right...EXCEPT for Rogue. Rogue from the begining knew she was born at the right time...she may have been the smallest at birth (Now she is the biggest) but that was only the beginning...here is the list of things that Rogue has conquered and everything was RIGHT on time in relation to her birth age...
-First Born
-First off CPAP
-First without feeding tube
-First with hair (then she lost it)
-First one to push up
-First one to roll from front to back and back to front
-First to babble
-First to raspberry
-First to have teeth (Now she has 5)
-First to sit up
-First to sit on her own
-First to crawl
-First to say dada
-First to kneel
-First to crawl on all fours
-First to wave
-First to play games (Hide and seek/peek-a-boo)
-First to graduate from something
-First to say a "real" word (Dog)
-First to drink from a sippy cup without help
-First to come when called
and the list goes on...
So as the wife and I sat down listing everything we realized Rogue was born on time that's why she wanted out of the womb so bad...she knew it was time to get this party started...on the other hand her sisters are behind her by about 2-4 weeks...the gap is getting smaller but its still there. Its hard seeing the other two not on the same page as Rogue, but we know they are coming along...

The Results are IN...GOODBYE STINKY HEAD

Well Rogue is now FINISHED with her Doc Band...Hallelujah...her head began to smell so bad near the end...wow. An odor like no other. People ask us all the time "Is it working?" "Can you see a difference?"...well the results are in...IT WORKED...and there is a VERY noticeable difference...the biggest issue was that her head was too wide and now it is drastically narrower...the back is now a lot rounder than before and all around it is narrower and rounder...take a look at the before and afters aka her MUGSHOTS...ENJOY...
