Happy Valentine's Day!

Wishing everyone a Happy Valentine's Day!

We are very busy packing for our big move closer to Bill's work. It's exciting that he'll be able to be with us two extra hours a day now. Packing, not so exciting. Those who know me know how much I LOVE to move. And having moved many times, I was getting pretty good at it. Add three toddlers into the mix....not so much fun this time around. Bill's been boxing and boxing and boxing and the garage is filled so we're getting somewhere. We're really excited that the kids will have a big yard to play in come spring, and we'll have a lot more space which is going to be awesome! I am sure I'll be much more organized with more space. (stop laughing-- if i tell myself this enough, it will be true)

The kids are playing together a lot now. They have inside jokes and games they play over and over again. I see the bond of multiples now as they are growing, and it's truly amazing to watch. I'm jealous that I am not a multiple. I'm sure they'll be jealous they weren't singletons -- the grass is always greener. But it's such a joy to hear them laughing together.

On a negative note, they are still biting each other and biting us. It really hurts and I have the bruises to show for it. I'm hoping this stage ends soon. We try not to react but when one of them sneaks in a bite, man oh man is it hard to control my tone of voice. I have yelled and then they cry and I feel terrible. Or worse then crying, they see the reaction and try to bite again and again.

Bath time is by far the greatest part of the day. These kids LOVE the water, especially Julia. She's like a seal laying down and twisting all around. I think she thinks she can swim. One of their games is to take turns putting their face in the water and blowing bubbles . After they take their turn, the other two howl with laughter. Then the next one dunks and blows bubbles, more howling. The smile this brings's too cute.

Okay, I am wasting valuable packing time.

Enjoy your Valentine's Day,
