(Ignore the silly voice talking to him. It's just me being dumb.)
For some strange reason he giggles when you stretch his legs up and make is foot touch his face! He is so silly.

We tried out the Podee bottles today. Anna and Justin got the hang of it. Poor little Ayva would get the suction, but couldn't keep the milk up there long enough to drink it. Here are some pics.

I loved living there. I would love living there again. But it can't happen. And I am truly sad about that. I just wanted a nice place for my kids to grow up- have a nice yard to play in, nice rooms and a good neighborhood. Justin and I wanted our kids to go to the same schools we did. But, I guess......... somethings don't happen the way you want them to. It looks as though Justin and I will have to do our best with this small place with the tiniest yard for now. Hopefully, in the future we can do better for them. They can have room to run, and to play tag and maybe one day to have their own rooms. Now they all have to share one room. And that is ok for now, but someday they won't want to. I guess all parents want what's best for their kids, and I just want my kids to have the best memories of their childhood- like I did. And I know it's not the place that make the memories, but everytime I see that house I think of those memories and smile.

(aka Anna-Banana, aka smile-bucket, aka mini-me, aka sugar bear)
Daddy picked her first name and her middle name is after her great grandma Lois (her middle name was Jeanne).
Things she likes: To be held, to crawl out of her boppy, she likes to watch the lights on her play yard, starting to like to eat cereal, and she loves to just look around and make noises.
Things she hates: spitting up (she is like me. I HATE to throw up), sitting by herself for too long, cold formula, and she hates the sound of the hair dryer.
She is pretty easy going and for the most part doesn't cry much. She only cries if she has had enough of something (ex. sitting by herself too long) or if she is hungry. She looks like me when I was a baby but everyone says she looks more like Justin.
(aka Crank-pot, aka Sugarlicious, aka Ayva-mayva, aka honey bear)
Mommy picked her first name (pronounced like Ava only with a Y, and her middle name is after her great-great grandma Verlie.)
Things she likes: to be held, to eat, and be talked to or sang to, loves to be rocked to sleep, laying on her belly, being carried in the little baby backpack and LOVES being naked.
Things she hates: laying on her back, really warm formula, puking out her nose (she FREAKS out), sitting by herself, and riding in her carseat.
Ayva is the most tempermental of the group. She is easily upset, and HATES to lay on her back- always. She also looks like I did when I was a baby but everyone says she looks more like Justin.
(aka Ham-Bone, aka Little J, aka Justi, aka Giggle-box, aka Snort, aka Boo Bear)
Daddy picked out his whole name! Thought it was cute.
Things Justin likes: Loves to be talked to, and smiled at, flirting with girls (geeze... already?lol), being tickled, taking baths, LOVES watching his mobile go around, his paci, and loves snuggling with mommy.
Things he hates: Needing to poop and can't, being hungry, and having a noise suddenly scare him.
Justin is the most laid back of the group. He smiles ALL day long and giggles at the littlest things! He looks exactly like Daddy Justin when he was a baby but everyone thinks he looks more like me.

Ayva (and she had fallen asleep like that. :( Poor thing.)
So I thought "Ok, Ayva can crawl out of her boppy. I will just not leave Ayva alone like that. But the other two didn't crawl out so I can run and make some bottles. And I came back to this:
Anna. (She was still crawling out of it when I returned to the living room. Not crying or anything..just content to be moving I guess.)
BOTH GIRLS CAN CRAWL OUT OF THIER BOPPY'S!!
Geeze! Just when I thought it was safe to leave them on the floor doing tummy time on thier boppy's........ I guess it's just strictly girls on the floor now. LOL.
Today was Earth Day and the only cute thing I could find for them to wear was the girls in tie-dye and baby justin in this:
It says "Hi I'm New Here"SO good news! We are moving! I am so excited! Now we live in a 2 bedroom duplex and it is SMALL! We will be moving into a real house! It has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms! It also has a great big yard, and a really nice patio for the kids to play on! It is my grandma's old house and she is selling it to us for really cheap! PLUS she is letting us move in early, before we even get the loan on it so we can clean up this house to sell. Because I think no one would really want to buy this house the way it is. All the baby seats and car seats and swings and boppy's and play yards..... it's a bit crowded. And with three cribs in one room- with a dresser AND a changing table! Everything looks smaller with all that in it. It would be a good house for a couple with ONE kid. Not three. SO I'm sure it won't be hard to sell when we get most of the stuff out. We live like 2 minutes away from a major outdoor shopping center. That's gotta be good. Anyways I will post pics of the new house when I can. Right now I am going to sleep while I can!

Anna (that is her smile!)
Justin, Anna and Ayva (they love that baby einstien mobile)
Oh and by the way, I am SO excited for it to be really nice weather out. We bought a little kiddy pool yesterday and I CAN'T wait to get them in it and see how they like it! We still need to buy the girls swim suits, but Justin already has some swim trunks. They are SO tiny! He still wears 0-3 month clothes and sometimes can wear newborn things. His swim trunks are 0-3 and look like a doll could wear them. I don't know what kind of swim suit to get the girls. Maybe a cute little bikini? Hey if I can't wear one anymore, someone should!

This is Justin gagging a little- he really didn't like it.
All in all everyone got at least 4-5 bites and that was enough. They all drank a bottle after that and then they were all hungry again an hour and
a half later. Piggy-babies!
Then they were all so wore out that they took a nap with Grandma.

By the 3rd picture they had already had enough. As you can see by the looks on Anna and Justin's faces!
They are so funny. They will smile and giggle and have a good ol' time until I bring out my camera! It's like they know I want them to smile and look cute and so they do the opposite. Although I got some really good ones of them the other day. I really love my new camera and am going a little picture happy. I also made some birth announcements on this webiste I found. But for some reason this blog thing won't let me put them on here right now. So I will blog again later and post them.
