Sun Hats and Big Kid Cups

It’s been a while since I posted, but we’ve been busy! Here’s what has happened since the trio turned one. It’s hard to believe we are coming up on 13 months this weekend!

In the last two weeks…

  • we’ve sprouted four (going on five) new teeth
  • we went to our first birthday party (that wasn’t ours) — Yay, Elias!
  • we took our first trip to Brooklyn
  • we took our first day trip ever (to Brooklyn)
  • we had our 12-month check-up (stats to follow)
  • we dropped to one bottle a day
  • we started drinking whole milk
  • we learned how to use big boy/big girl cups
  • we had our first professional photo shoot
  • we’ve all had a turn (or two) in the new running stroller — Thanks, Dad!
  • we (all) survived my first trip away–two nights and three days in Boston
  • we’ve been hankering to bust out of our baby jail!
  • we’ve learned some new dance moves
  • we’ve enjoyed many trips to the park sans snowsuits (although we did have to don snowsuits last week)!

  1. I can’t believe how big they are getting! And they are so adorable! I just wanted to let you know about a wonderful invention that you might be needing soon. It is a crib tent. Probably around 18 months, mine started to climb out of their cribs. The thought of them wandering around the house while I was sleeping did not sit well with me. That’s when I discovered the crib tent. I purchased mine at Babies-R-Us. They are completely see through and they have a zipper to access the baby. Although after a while, mine figured out how to unzip from the inside so I would use a safety pin to keep the zipper closed. Another tip I want to share with you is duct tape. Mine liked to undress themselves including their diapers! I tried many different ways to prevent that from happening and the best one was duct tape around their diapers. Works like a charm! When you are outnumbered by your children, you need to have creative solutions! There’s one more thing I want to share with you. Mine would climb on each other during their jail breaks. That means one was left behind but that didn’t seem to matter to the other two. So brace yourself because things are going to get a lot more interesting! Good luck!

    • Haha, Jill, this is so helpful! You are not the first to tell me they will likely learn to undress each other. We’re not there yet, but Henry has mischief written all over that furrowed brow. A crib tent may very well be in our near future!
