Update #2

When I updated earlier this week, the last photo I posted was of Ryan in full super-ultimate flexing mode! The picture to the left is the result of his dedication to working out and being the most powerful beast he can be. He just got too excited one day and took this rattle and destroyed it in a happy fit against his jumperoo! If you look closely he's actually cracked the rattle ball in half. I fear this will be a common event for him as he grows, but luckily he's a gentle soul and I'm hoping he won't do it often.

The babies had another doctor visit that was pretty eventful on a few fronts. First and foremost, they are all still doing very very well. They're bigger, heavier, and faster and I've posted their new weights and heights on the left side. They are doing so well that we won't have to see him again until they are one year old! That's pretty cool when you think about it. Dr. Klipfel then shocked us by saying we should stop the formula and give them a try on whole milk! They handled it well without any serious throwing up, but they just weren't digesting it well and their poo was getting lighter and lighter in color and had started to glow in the dark. So, after a week on Milk, we've switched back to formula and we'll try milk again at the beginning of May.

The most jarring development has been their mobility! I thought they were moving around a lot before, but that was nothing. We all know what it's like when there is one baby learning to crawl, but try and imagine three of them? It's exhausting. Sarah has definitely taken the lead in crawling all over----not just army crawling, but regular crawling most of the time., but Perrin is very close behind her. Little Ryan doesn't seem to be that concerned at the time, but he has his moments.

The babies are all getting into every nook and crany that they can find. We've had to put up the gates and block off all exits because they just want to go and explore! We even had to put up a clear plastic panel over the TV components because they have become very interested in punching the VCR or stereo. Because it's clear, they don't understand it and often run into it with their head, similar to a bird flying into your picture window. But the point is that the kids are everywhere and once before we had the gates up, we even had to dig Perrin out of the dryer!!

Now that the babies are older we are taking them out more and more often with us because they are usually so well behaved. It's too the point that they now have friends of their own. Living closest to us is their friend Finnegan Danger Curry who is our friend Tom and Colleen's son, and Ellie Shively from Ohio who is our friend's Brian and Heather's daughter. They're both extremely cute and they each have their own blogs! If you have a few moments take a visit to their blogs and see for yourself. You can find them by clicking on their names on the left hand side.

I'll close this out with a nice little closeup of the boys sleeping on Meva! As always, click on the images to see a bigger and better picture!
