We're soo Busy, Busy, Dreadfully Busy!



We have had another fun-filled summer week. We ended last weekend by going to our first State Fair. It was so much fun because we got to eat cheese curds and ride on the merry go round for the first time! Of course, Jack wasn't allowed to try the cheese curds because of his milk allergy, so instead daddy shared some of his lemonade with him. The merry go round was really big and we had no idea what we were supposed to do on it! It had all of these colorful horses and benches and it played music like some of our toys. We really were excited and kinda nervous when we got on the ride, but once we got used to it we thought it was a fun time. Oh, well all of us but Addison thought it was fun. She thought it was terrifying and cried and clung onto mommy the entire ride. Luckily Uncle Mark got some pictures for everyone to see us. After eating, riding the merry go round and seeing the animals it was time for us to leave. Well, actually all three of us fell asleep because we were so exhausted and THEN we decided to leave.









We also had G'ma Jean over to celebrate her birthday. We got to give her some presents (and help her rip open the gift bag) and got a few tastes of the card before mommy took it away. We also got to see her cake and sing to her, but daddy said "no cake until your birthday!"...boo!

On Saturday afternoon we got to go to Eli's baseball tournament. It was to determine if his team was going to go to State. We got to try out our new double umbrella stroller at the game and got to sit right behind Eli to cheer him on. They ended up winning by 1 run and now they are going to State!! We are so proud of our big cousin. Hopefully someday we can be like him.
Today we went to Auntie Dawn's and Uncle Mark's house to eat ribs. Well, we thought we were going to eat ribs but we didn't even get to sit at the table. Instead we sat in the living room with our toys and watching everyone else eat their meal. Luckily, after lunch we went outside to play and we were sooo excited to find a new pool for us to play in!! All three of us are getting to really like pools. Jordan loves to stick his face in and try to drink the water. He gets really wet and his hat is always drenched by the time we are done. Jack just loves to splash and play with his toys and Addison loves to sunbathe. We told her she needs to splash and kick and play like us boys but she isn't really good at wanting to play with us. We loved having our new pool to play in and we can't wait to use it again. Hopefully this week if it stays nice outside!

Enough Paparazzi...Please!

We aren't sure what all the commotion is about but whenever we go anywhere we seem to attract ALOT of attention. It used to just be when we'd go to Target with mommy. A bunch of people would stop us and look at us and ask mommy "are they triplets?"...but now we've noticed everywhere we go we get all of the attention. At the pool yesterday everyone wanted to talk to us and at church all of our family friends want to see us.

But the oddest part has been the picture taking. Mommy in particular has been snapping pictures of us all day long. She even sneaks and gets pictures without us noticing! We've decided because we seem to be so popular mommy must be selling our photos to the tabloids for extra money. What else would she be doing with all of those pictures? It used to be we had to make sure our faces were clean and we were in nice clothes to leave the house, but now with mommy working on "the inside" we have to make sure we look and act good ALL DAY LONG!

So...with that being said, here are a bunch of pictures mommy took of us in the past few weeks. She says she "doesn't sell them!" but we find that hard to believe. We know there is a demand.

"Soooo Big!"


Addison

Jack

This week we are all trying to show off all of our new skills. All of us can now stand up against the furniture and we are all trying to move around the floor on our tummies. Jordan is even starting to do things on his stomach! (which we all know is a very big "no, no!" for him) Jordan is also practicing standing with "no hands" as long as mommy or daddy will be there ready to catch him. Addison is really, really wanting to crawl...here's a video mommy got of her this week:

Jack has decided that simply saying "baba" when he's hungry and saying "dada" is just so boring so he has decided whistling is much more exciting. I know, I know you are all thinking "what? there is no way he can whistle!" (believe Addie and me...we couldn't believe it either). Mommy tried all day today to catch him with his new hidden talent but it was really hard. Listen closely and you can hear him whistle towards the end of the video.

Jordan not only loves to practice standing, he also found out he LOVES to lick (the rest of us don't get this?) anything and everything near him. Including us, mommy & daddy and ESPECIALLY...the glass slider.






We all also started eating teething biscuits for the first time this week. It sure is fun gumming them to death. Mommy always asks us if "that feels good on your gums because you're getting a toothy!" But we know that there aren't really teeth coming, but who wants to disappoint mommy again this week and they are kinda yummy!

Mommy's Cooking



Today mommy had us try her first batch of homemade baby food. Boy was that an adventure! Over the weekend we saw all the veggies and fruit she bought for our food and then on Sunday night we heard this super loud noise right as we were going to bed. It scared Addison, but Jordan assured her it wasn't a monster, instead he was pretty sure it was mommy "cooking" up our meal. We found out from Jack though that it was a blender. I guess she uses it to mix up our meals for us.
So today we finally got to try her food. She had us try peas. First, for the records let us say none of us LOVE peas anyways so that didn't help out the situation. Here are a few pictures mommy captured of us and our first encounters with the new food. We would prefer to leave each of our opinions on the food to ourselves because no one wants to hurt mommy's feelings...but you be the judge!







Jack would like to make one comment about the experience. He would like to ask mommy to let Gerber keep feeding us and let her focus on playing with us during the day. (So pretty much "don't quit your day job" but Jack told Addie NOT to type that).
