Let them eat cake Vol. I

The First Birthday Weekend

Well, we made it to and through the First Birthday Celebration.

On Sunday (July 20) I thought it would be a good idea to try a Sea World trip...little did I realize that we live in Florida and that it would end up being 95 degrees in Orlando with a relative humidity of "moist." There were flashes of enjoyment from the babies (and I think we captured those in the pictures from the Remix below) but they were pretty miserable most of the day.

They were all asleep (albeit briefly) as we waited to see the Blue Horizon Dolphin Show. Oh, but then a large group of well-meaning Brazilians noticed the sleeping triplets and commenced to fawn over, touch and, yes, awaken said sleeping triplets. Please note that the country of origin is not significant in regards to the behavior...most anyone we come across in public feels that it is not only their right, but also their duty to point out that we have three babies and also to awkwardly express their affection for these three children.

Ah, going out in public.

So, we had a very private birthday celebration at home. It was a nice afternoon of naps, dinner, presents and cupcakes. As you will see in the video, the girls were a bit more timid around the cupcake than Jonah, but, in the very least, each cupcake was missing a good portion of icing.

I've had to break the video up into three segments, each of which will take a while to upload so, they will be available for viewing the way, don't worry about trying to watch the video segments in matter which order you view them, the plot remains the same and the ending remains predictable.

Tugging with Winston

Cate and Jonah were having a blast (and being egged on by their father) with their dog. Eve tried to get in on the action, but wisely stayed on the outskirts. What the video does not show is the result of Cate's tumble at the end. It is a bit of a long clip, but the laughter from the babies makes it worth it for me.

Our 4th of July Video

These are some of the sights and sounds that have become frequent in our household. Jonah, Cate and Eve babbling, Eve showing off her clapping skills, Jonah trying to snap, Cate smacking her tray and everything in between. This is about as close as we got to fireworks today. Anyway...Happy 4th!

Happy Independence Day!

Flyin' Babies!

Baby Eve's trail of destruction...

Eve often goes to bed and decides that she would rather be elsewhere so, in the process of fighting the inevitable, she has developed the tendency to pull items out of the dirty clothes basket (which is obviously within reach of her crib). Notice in the lower right of the picture, Eve was able to get the outfit she wore that day as well as the skorts Cate wore and a few other items. I know, I know...why don't we just move the laundry basket? Simple, we live in a small place...she could reach it pretty much no matter where we put it in the house.

There were never such devoted sisters!
