Rosemary and Her Fat Rolls

Gary and I get very excited when we see fat rolls on the babies, especially Rosemary. Brooke, our nanny, told us that one day someone is going to tell one of our babies that they're fat and they will respond, "Thank you," just as if they were told they are beautiful! A fat baby is a beautiful baby, right? Anyway, following are some adorable pictures of Rosemary to show off her nice fat rolls!

And, Rosemary seems to be the baby with the most hair! It's got to be at least an inch long on the top. . . .

And just because it's cute. . . .

Henry and his Blue Doggie

We found out early on that Henry has a favorite toy -- his little blue doggie. If Henry is crying, the blue doggie will help. He will lay there and just rub the blue doggie until he falls asleep. I've told people how much Henry loves his blue doggie, but no one seems to understand how much until they see the pictures.

Following are some pictures of Henry with his blue doggie that we've taken over the last few weeks.

And yes, we do have a backup blue doggie now!

Piper, Piper, Piper!

I've told many of you what a good, easy baby Piper is. She came home from the hospital first. She starting holding her head up first. To put her sleep, all you have to do is swaddle her and lay her down and she's out in a matter of minutes. She has not had to visit the pediatric urologist, when both Henry and Rosemary have. She does not have reflux like her brother and sister. She usually eats well -- and quickly. She is not needy, and in fact does not appear to like cuddling (although I do love a cuddler, that is okay because I already have one big-time cuddler in the bunch -- Henry). She loves her swing, her bumbo, and her boppy, and is happy to sit there until she's ready to go back to bed.

So what is wrong with Piper? Well, you would think nothing UNTIL you put her next to her brother and sister and take out a camera. I don't know what it is about group shots, but simply the sight of a camera when she is laying next to her brother and sister causes her to completely freak out. As you can imagine, this makes it very hard to get a nice picture of all three of them. Henry will smile for the camera, and we can get Rosemary to smirk, but the best we can do with Piper is hope that in one of the pictures her mouth will be closed and it will not be too apparent that she's just taking a nice, deep breath before she starts screaming again.

So, here's my only proof that Piper is not perfect:

Happy (Belated) Halloween!

We weren't able to take the babies trick-or-treating, but that didn't stop us from dressing the babies up in costumes and taking their pictures anyway! We had a hard time deciding what costumes to buy for the babies but once we saw these costumes, I knew that we had to get them. Gary thinks that we're dangerously close to overdoing the theme, but what fun is a theme if you don't overdo it?
