So Many Firsts!

I am sure you are all wondering by now how the transition back to work went. Well, if the fact that I haven’t posted in over a week is any indication, then you have probably deduced that things are much busier around the Strumolo household these days. Having three babies makes life busy enough, and adding a 10-hour work day to the mix doesn’t exactly make things any easier! I was all set to gripe here about what makes being a working mom so hard, but then I thought, you don’t care! You want to see what these babies have been up to! Well, they’ve been up to an awful lot over the last week. They’ve been strolling


By the sailboat pond


Here they are at Nan’s bench. Nan was nanny to Grammie (Ann) and her sisters many years ago. Great-grandparents Gee and Poppy dedicated a bench in Central Park to her. The trips were excited to visit!

They’ve been Stylin’


Sophie in her jeggings. How cute is this bum?



They’ve been snoring

They’ve been enjoying Story Time


And Serenades


Henry is learning how to laugh… And Jack is learning how to roll. On Monday, he rolled from back to tummy, but of course, when we tried to get him to do it again for the camera, he never quite made it all the way over.  But he’s no quitter! Sophie is showing the boys how to get it done during tummy time.

And Henry is leading the way in the grabbing department. IMG_1738


Jack is catching on, however, and his face when he finally got ahold of the toy was priceless. IMG_1750 IMG_1752

Everyone is working on sitting up…some with more success than others!


Sophie is SO much shorter than the boys. She is such a peanut!


Jack looks like he’s ready to kick back with a beer! IMG_1724

Apparently he prefers his Bumbo to the sofa. Henry can fend off the assaults from his rolling brother and kicking sister, IMG_1740

and Jack can blow bubbles. IMG_2848

Sophie is losing her hair, but what little wisps are left are still cute and curly! IMG_1734




She’s also been enjoying some oatmeal baths in the hopes that her eczema will calm down. IMG_1733

The boys have begun to notice Sophie (she is pretty loud, after all), IMG_1720

and those boys are looking pretty identical! IMG_1722

It’s been a busy week for all five Strumolos! Until next time…

  1. Aww… I’m shedding a tear thinking of Nanny 🙂 How she would have loved your three little babies… who are looking very grown up and cute as ever! Can’t wait to see them.

  2. What a treat to read about it all!! Hmm, I think the trips are big enough to wear Arsenal shirts…..sending lots of love from London. xx
