The day has come...

Well the day has come that the boys have learned to crawl out of their cribs. I was hoping we would never have to deal with that, and as they got older and people kept saying, "I can't believe they stay in their cribs", I was hoping! HAHAHA! That's what I get. Shannon (the nanny) called me today and said that she laughed so hard b/c she went into their room after they woke up from their nap, and Lane and Reid had climbed out of their cribs into Wyatt's crib. They were having a good ole' time bouncing, laughing, and playing. What's next? I can only imagine. I have a feeling I will be saying "the day has come" quite frequently over the next few years!

More beach pictures & our new cousin

Well, we had a blast at the beach this past weekend. The boys really enjoyed it and Ryan and I enjoyed watching them enjoy it! I really never thought I would get all the sand off of them though. That really is the only downfall of the beach...sand everywhere! Sunday morning we rented a bike for two. This bike had a basket in the front where we put the boys. It was the cutest thing you have ever seen. We had so many people stop us to take pictures, it was amazing how things like that brighten peoples days. We had so many comments on how seeing that just made their day. We are very thankful for our three amazing blessings even though we were very sore the next day. That was a lot of pedaling for us with 95 lbs of kids added to it. We were beat but really enjoyed it.

After that we headed back home, but had to make a stop by Ryan's brothers house in Humble. They just had a baby girl, Alexis Grace, two weeks ago. We had to stop by to see her for the first time and the boys just loved her. Reid spent the whole time just reaching for her to hold her and hug her. He really loves babies...he just wanted to hold and kiss her. We found that he did that with my sisters little girl, Ireland, also. He is so sweet and lovable. Here are some pictures of the triplets and baby Alexis.

Some updates on what the boys are doing now...
They are almost 2 1/2...OMG! They are really talking good and you can actually carry on a conversation with them and expect an answer back. It is amazing how far they have come. Lane and Wyatt are really good talkers and you can understand most everything they say. They love to repeat so we are having to edit our adult language often. Reid is doing better, he is talking more but still a little hard to understand. He is working on it thought! Lane's new phrase is "I love you". It is so cute when he says it. He and Wyatt both say it, but Lane says it all the time. Reid is still obsessed with Barney on the Farm. He watches it literally 3-5 times a day. He loves Barney and knows all the animal sounds from it. Now that it has been really nice for the past few days, we have been outside most all day. They love playing outside and it is like pulling teeth to get them in at night. They ride their motor toys they got for Christmas and collect rocks. They are usually filthy gross when they come in at night. The only way to get them in now is to promise them some Strawberry Milk...they are in love with Strawberry Milk, and to hear them actually say it is hilarious! Other than that, they are crazy kiddos who keep us insane!

Family Beach Vacation

This weekend we are vacationing in Galveston at a condo we rented. This is the first trip to the beach for the boys. We came down Friday afternoon and spent all day Saturday at the beach and Moody Gardens Aquarium. The water was cold, but the boys loved playing in the sand and kicking the soccer ball on the beach. The condo we rented was really nice. It was right on the seawall, had a full kitchen, and even a washer and dryer. Oh the things we learn to appreciate and love! I get to go home with all my laundry done!!! Enjoy the pictures they were a blast!

Snow Babies

I know I'm a little late in posting this, but I finally got the pictures downloaded from the other day when it snowed. The boys had a blast playing in the snow. Here are some pictures of them playing in the snow and it also shows just how much snow we got!

Ready for St. Patrick's Day

My mother make our life so interesting. She has decided to dress the boys for St. Patrick's day. They really enjoy staying with her...there is never a dull moment. My nanny is in Hawaii this week and so my mom and Ryan's mom have been keeping them for us. I sure wish I was in Hawaii...but she needs a break too. She is such an awesome nanny and so good with the boys.

Not too much else going on with us. The boys are really starting to talk a lot more. The repeat everything, especially Lane and Wyatt. Reid is now talking a lot more and they are all really good with their sign language. The are signing please and thank you along with the others they originally were taught. That is definitely the way to go these days. It makes Reid's life easier b/c he is having a hard time communicating with us. But they are almost 2 1/2 now and acting it. My house will never be the same. Enjoy these cute pictures of them dressed and ready for St. Patrick's day!
