Christopher continues to inch upward, and Saturday night he leveraged his newfound height and reached (with ease) on to the counter and tugged on the cloth mat the coffee pot was on until the coffee pot came crashing down. You guessed it, the coffee pot BROKE, and Angelique SCREAMED, which caused Christopher to SCREAM and the girls to SYMPATHY SCREAM.


Their curiousity continues to grow…


When I come home from work, the house is usually destroyed, but with triplets that’s par for the course. Most days we don’t even bother to clean up after them. We will  have them do it when the time comes.

We are planning a trip to the zoo soon. They will love it. Emma is the talker of the group, and I look forward to hearing what words she dreams up.


Let the naps on Daddy continue!

Play Hard Or Go Home!

Bumps, bruises and scrapes here and there are the topic du jour for the Cavelets. They absolutely love it outside, and take full advantage of the opportunity to play outdoors and go all out in our backyard.


They love to play in the water and enjoy tossing balls around. Their uniqueness shines through with each passing day. Their exposure to the sun is resulting in darker skin tones, each a shade different but gorgeous.

Michaela and Christopher play the hardest together, but Emma is now getting in on more and more of the fun. She’s selective about it, though. We are still working on getting Christopher to be gentle with his sisters. He’s so strong and doesn’t know just how strong he is.


We are seeing more and more tantrums out of all of them. It is mostly when they are tired, but also appears when they fight over toys and when it’s time to brush teeth.

Grandma and Grandpa have visiting days on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The kids love to see them. 


Our nanny Mariana is in town for a while and has paid us a few visits. Emma took full advantage:


That’s all for now 🙂

Cheers,

  • Loves to attempt to dress herself and has a unique sense of fashion.
  • Has taken up stealing her siblings’ bottles when they still have 1 oz to go, apparently just because

  • Loves green peas (what’s up with that?)
  • Tends to be a picky eater at times
