Being a SuperMom to multiples is truly a blessing in desguise. I have weekly and monthly calendars, but I seem to live ONE DAY at a time! I must tell you all that I could not do it without my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ by my side!

Learning news things and Pushing the Limits!

Have I told everyone just how much I LOVE that I have the opportunity to stay home with the "Peas" and WATCH everything they learn and do...as they do it????

Yesterday:
Cliff decided that he was going to ride the little rocking horse that Grandpa and Grandma got them for Christmas! He did it...all by himself! He figured out how to swing his leg over and sit on it. He then discovered how to rock back and forth, and he already knew how to press the button to make the sounds. After practicing all of this...he could do all three together. He was soooo proud of himself!

Maryanna was in a climbing mood and she climbed up on the rocking chair, she then climbed up on the coffee table, and she then climbed up on their play kitchen...I found her standing in the sink!

Macey continues to amaze me. She was reading a book to herself (in her own special language) and I asked her to show me the fish. (She just saw fish in a doctors office recently and was fascinated.) She turned several pages looking at each on intently as she went. Finally, she stoped on the story of Johna and the BIG fish, brought me the book, and pointed at the FISH!

Today we went shopping. We left the house about 10am and returned around 7pm! They did not even cry! We let them run around right in front of the "Chick Fillet". They ran around and smiled at everyone at the mall. I NEVER had to get up out of my chair to go get one! I can hardly believe what I am saying they were soooo good to play right around in that one area and not run away! Three toddlers and no one escaped!

Takes all day to do hardly anything!

Thanks for the comments "supermoms"! I LOVE watching your babies grow-up on your blogs too!

Went to USA developmental clinic today for the first time! Yeah! They just wanted to take a closer look at Cliff and turns out that he is just fine. He is a little slow in verbal communication and fine motor skills and they will retest in about six months. OK, so he doesn't talk and he has trouble picking up grapes...I could have told you that! :)

Anyway we used the day to run around Mobile while we were out...made a day of it. I've discovered that children slow everything down except TIME! And traveling around with multiples just seems to multiply the effect! We left the house at 7 am and returned around 4 pm and we only went 4 places: USA Clinic, PetSmart, TGIFridays for lunch, and Hudsons. Nine hours and four stops!!!!! Does this improve with age???

What's UP this week!

Hi everyone!
Glad to say that everyone is just fine and dandy! We are all praying for our friends with sick babies and looking so forward to spring!

Eating is ALWAYS an issue with the peas. They were crying at almost every meal so I just quit trying to feed them and started giving them ALL whole foods. They can pick-up and chew just about everything now. No more crying, but they still skip meals! I just do my best to make sure they are getting very little JUNK food since every bite counts! If you moms have any secrets please let me know! Here are some pics of my Etheopian babies!

Maryanna MEOWing!

Cliff on a box... So Proud!

Macey...so tiny!


Who opened that bag of chips!!!!

As the babies become toddlers, I am amazed almost daily at what they can accomplish! Macey seems to be the smartest but Maryanna is definately the first to push the limits. Cliff tends to follow right along with Maryanna and we call them the "TWINS". Macey is much more independent, doing her own thing. Here are a few pics taken this week!

Maryanna in the Rocker!

Maryanna & Cliff on the Coffee Table!

We also got a little table this week! I love it! The babies love it too! They eat snack on it...work on puzzles there, and of course try to climb on it! But they are doing good about getting down.


Snack Time!
