Oh Where, Oh Where Have the Riplets Gone?

Has everyone been wondering where the heck the Riplets are? We've been so busy between holidays, family visits and Jack getting sick that we haven't had time to keep up with our posts, sorry! Not a very good way to start our new year. Hopefully we can get back to our regular updates now so that our Riplet fans stay happy and not so hostile.

First of all, we still have to post pictures of our Christmas for you. We went to Auntie Dawn and Uncle Mark's house for Christmas Eve and we had a great time. We got a bunch of fun presents including a new play kitchen, a slide, our 1st bike, a 4x4 (not motorized, boo!), a ball pit, new booster seats, an inch worm (to ride), and tent w/a tunnel attached to it. Those are just some of the big toys we got. We also got a bunch of nice books, puzzles, and clothes. Christmas Eve we were all so excited (okay maybe just tired) about Santa coming that we went right to sleep and slept all night long. We even slept in for mommy & daddy and didn't get up until 6:20am. Christmas Day we got to open our stocking and gifts from Santa and we went to G'ma & G'pa's house for dinner.

On New Years Eve, Memere & Pepere came to see us! They brought us presents, too and we got to celebrate Christmas AGAIN with them. It was a lot of fun. We got some fun new books, bibs, clothes and puzzles and we also got some money to put in our savings account. Mommy & Daddy said we can use it when we go visit them in Massachusetts this summer. New Year's Eve was also the last night we had a bottle. We said good bye to babas for good as we started 2010. Mommy told us it was our New Year's Resolution.

Our Last Bottle

While Memere & Pepere were visiting, Jack started to feel pretty sick. It turns out (after a few visits to the dr and two visits to the ER) he had some major constipation and ended up having a total of 4 suppositories and 2 enemas before he finally felt better. Poor guy, luckily Jordan and I have no issues at all in that department. In fact, daddy just told me last week that he's going to charge me 25 cents for each extra overnight diaper I need to use (because I poop in them right after he puts it on me before bed) because he says "those aren't cheap!". For the record, I'm only up to $1.oo this week so that isn't too bad, right?


  1. Thanks for the update, Addie! We've missed hearing about you and your brothers. I'm relieved to hear that Jack is feeling better finally. I hope you and Jordan were nice to him while he was sick!

    I love all the cute pics of you guys (especially the one of you in your new shirt from your favorite auntie). You're so fashionable! :)

    Uncle James and I hope to come and visit you guys soon! We love you!

  2. So glad to hear from you Addie. I've missed reading all about you and 'the boys'. That's what your big cousin Kylie refers to her brothers as 'her boys'. Horray for no more Bottles. You 3 are all getting SO big.
    I'm glad that you had such a nice christmas and that Memere and Pepere got to visit you for new year. What a great way to start of the new year..well aside from Jack being sick. Poo on that!
    We all can't wait to see you this summer. All your family here misses you tons. Love you all!!!
