Clean up crew

How, exactly, do you clean 3 babies after they smear sweet potatoes all over every possible body part?

Call in the dogs.  Bella and Sandy, to be precise.  Bella is the golden colored dog, with the long, very thorough tongue.  Sandy is the black colored dog, with the cautious, careful tongue.

Sooooo much easier than daily bath time!

A day at the beach

This weekend, we took the girls to Fisherman's Beach in Swampscott to play in the sand. It was a beautiful day, and they all enjoyed touching, eating, and playing with the sand.

All 3 girls, relaxing beachside:

So with 2 adults and 3 babies, it can be tough to keep track of exactly what each girl is doing. See evidence below, where we discover exactly how tasty sand can be.

The rest of the pictures from the beach are here.

Also this weekend, Aunt Jodi came for a visit, which was fantastic. She took a bunch of awesome pictures- they are here and here.

Jodi managed to capture Maya up on her knees. Yes, we're starting to get close to mobility, which is a terrifying prospect. Our herding dogs will have to do their best to keep everyone contained once that day finally comes.

And to close, a shot of all 3 girls in the bikinis that their Mugwump got them. I think they spent most of the time trying to eat each other's bikini, but it was still awfully cute.

8 months old!

Catch us if you can!

What a long way we've all come in 8 months!

This is what the girls looked like when they were first born.




Eight months later, and we have jumping, bouncing, scream-talking little dynamos on our hands.

I wish I could report on their weights, but given the super-healthy status the girls have managed to maintain, they haven't been weighed since 6 months and aren't due until 9 months.  Estimates are that Hannah is around 15 pounds, Fiona and Maya around 13 1/2 pounds.

Happy 2/3 of a year old girls!!!
