17 Month Update

I can't believe the girls are 17 months old! Every day, they look more and more like little girls and less like babies!

Matt won a new camera at work during a United Way Auction, so I've been inspired to take a few more photos lately! Here are some of the fun activities we've been up to:

Matt's mom bought a few new outfits for the girls - this one fits Izzy to a "T".

Abigail's shirt says "Beary Cute" (You can't see it in this pic). Even though she's fussing here, I think she looks beary cute anyway. I didn't get a pic of Ally, but her shirt says "Free Bear Hugs", which is very appropriate. Ally gives THE BEST hugs. She cuddles me often, and even pats me on the back sometimes.... so sweet.

I think Abby might be a little fashionista! She keeps taking her shirts 1/2 way off and walking around with her little shoulder out...

Ally & Izzy ready for their afternoon nap....

We're still having a little problem with Izzy biting her sisters... It probably happens 2-3 times a week. She gets in trouble and has to go to time out, which is a pack & play in the guest room, but she just can't seem to help herself when a sister steals her toys. Abby gets bitten every now and then, but it seems Ally really gets the brunt of it.
This pic is of Izzy & Ally sitting on their toy, Silly Town. This was moments before a biting incident when Ally tried to take Izzy's toy.

Izzy putting a basket on her head - Can't you just see the ornery in her eyes?

Sweet Ally - look at those eyes!

Running around our bedroom carrying daddy's HUGE shoes!!!

They sure look huge when the girls carry them around!

My mom bought the girls a new table and chairs. Here they are having a snack with their Great Papaw at their new table.

Enjoying their table...

I love this pic - Abby sitting at her daddy's feet "reading" a book.

Ally "reading" at her new table.

Ally & Izzy saying "bye bye" to their Great Mamaw and Papaw. I LOVE this pic and think I will cherish it forever!

I wasn't going to blog about this, because I'm embarassed, but it's one of those things that happened, so I might as well write it in history. A few weeks ago, I let little Abby fall off the changing table. I was mortified and so upset with myself for letting it happen, but let me explain. I was putting the girls down for their afternoon nap - I had Ally and Izzy in the holding cell (aka Ally's crib, which is next to the changing table). As I started putting Abby in her zip-up blanket and changing her diaper, Izzy bit Ally on the face! I immediately rushed to get them separated and started getting on to Izzy (I was going to put her in her own crib). That's when I heard a loud thud and crying. Poor little Abby FELL OFF THE CHANGING TABLE!!! I COMPLETELY forgot she was even in a position where she could fall! She was not hurt, it just scared her... poor lil doe. But - I felt terrible and cried most of the afternoon. When I called Matt at work to tell him about it, he was obviously more concerned with Abby's well-being than mine, so he wasn't quite the sensitive person I was needing at that time. He did however, feel bad once he thought about it a little, and brought home flowers to reassure me I'm a good mom and wife. I still felt bad, but I know it can happen to anyone... especially someone with 3 babies. That same night, Ally took a nose-dive off the arm of the couch under Matt's supervision, so, although I felt bad for Ally, I was feeling good to not be the ONLY irresponsible parent in the relationship. Boy, were we glad to put the girls to bed and get that day over with before we caused any serious damage!
I should have plenty to blog about next week... Matt's taking off a few days around Halloween, so we should have 4 days to get the girls out and about and have some fun.

  1. The fact that you've made it this far with 3 babies and no serious injuries is amazing! Don't be hard on yourself. Avery (my 1st) was 6 weeks old when I left her on a bed and she rolled off (she had never rolled over before). My middle has had stitches twice and x-rays on her toe that I though she broke pulling a chair over onto it. And my youngest got a staff infection from an ant bite, left the house by herself and someone found her and called the police, and took a header off the couch while both Nick and I, AND a babysitter were standing less than 2 ft away. It happens to everyone. You are a WONDERFUL mom!
