Single Mother of Three

That was me all weekend long. Surbjit went on a boys riding trip and left me with the kids. He left Thursday night (after the girls went to bed and while Connor was watching his show) and did not come back until Sunday afternoon (right after all the kids woke up from their naps!). All in alll, I had a pleasant weekend with them. I didn't want to run screaming back to work today that's a plus. ;)

Friday morning I got them all up and was out the door at 7am. Dropped them off at daycare and then ran my errands I was planning on running this Friday (since the 31st was my regular day off). So now I can come into work this Friday and not use a vacation day! YEAH!! (I'm running out of days since I took two weeks off after the girls were born. Thankfully my vacation time starts back up again Jan. 1st). I even got to relax a little in the afternoon and watch some TV. (My TiVo was down to 21% available! YIKES! It's hard to find time to watch my shows now that I have three kids). Picked up the kids and we had dinner got ready for bed, played and went to sleep.

Woke up saturday a little before 7am. Got the girls dressed and fed everyone. Then we played in the house while it warmed up outside. Got Connor and myself dressed and then we headed over to La Mirada Regional Park. Spent about 1 1/2 hours there walking around, playing on the playground, feeding the girls, eating a snack. It was a beautiful day! Headed home, ate lunch and then ATTEMPTED to put the kids down for a nap. Both Taylor and Emily probably slept for 45 mins MAX and Connor never took a nap. Oh well. We continued to play, Connor played outside for a little bit and then I tried to put up Halloween decorations. I had the girls in the pack n play on the porch and Connor "helping" me. He found a pumpkin that I had bought years ago that you plug in and lights up and he's been playing with that ever since. =) I got some decorations up but the girls were fussy and crying so I brought them all inside. We ate dinner and then got ready for bed. The girls and Connor were wiped since they never took a nap so the girls were in bed by 6:30 (and OUT not too long after) and Connor went to bed at 7:30.

Woke up Sunday about 7am and just played all morning. Connor sure does have an imagination these days. It's so much fun to play with him. Ate lunch and the put the kids down for a nap at noon. The girls fell asleep and Connor did too. Slept until almost 3pm when Daddy got home. So all in all it was a great weekend. Connor did so good listening and helping me out. No time out at all. But he also never went pee pee in the potty either. UGH> I swear that boy will be going to kindergarten with a diaper.

So that was our weekend! I've been so busy at work I forgot I've uploaded the pictures from our halloween trip I just haven't had a chance to share them yet. Will do as soon as I get a break. Ha!

The Three Kids

I guess on Monday morning after Surbjit got the kids ready to go to daycare, Connor went next to Taylor and told Daddy to take their picture. Well Daddy decided to get all three kids together and this is what we got:

The girls LOVE the camera and when we bring it out they ham it up!!
Tonight we were playing around with Connor and he said he was leaving. We told him bye and then asked where he was going. He said, "I'm going to Disneyland!" We have NO idea where he heard Disneyland from. It sure wasn't us! Gave us a great laugh though!!!

I'm changing the look of the blog. Tell me if you like it or if it's hard to see. I can change it. =) I'll try and share some pictures and info from our camping trip this past weekend. It was lots of fun!!

My Houdini

It has taken me FOREVER to be able to post pics. I just downloaded the pics from my camera today and I had like 117 on there. Geesh! The reason I did was because we are going camping this weekend and I want a blank slate on the camera before we go. It's our annual Halloween camping trip. There are like 30+ families going and the initial headcount of kids (not including adults) is 80!!!! It's going to be crazy but I'm sure it's going to be FUN.

But back to the title of my post. Weeks ago, Surbjit took a picture of our little houdini (aka Emily) and how she attempts to get out of her chair. Here is that picture:

Then earlier last week, Surbjit was getting Connor ready in the morning and fighting him (as usual) and all of a sudden, Connor says "Emily. You aren't supposed to be in the hallway." Surbjit looks over. Sure enough, there she is crawling down the hallway. He had left her in her chair in the living room! So needless to say, we've outgrown the chairs. In the morning now, they go in the high chairs for their morning bottle, Emily holds hers and Taylor's now gets propped since she still REFUSES to hold it. We are also getting them up later now so I'm basically saying good morning and good bye. Oh well, I knew it would happen eventually. I guess I'll just play with them more at night. =)
Other than that, not much new going on here. I've got some pictures to share from our weekend but I'll save that for another post! I've got cleaning up to do in the kitchen!

Teeth, teeth and more teeth

Well I guess when they teeth, they really teeth. Taylor is getting in not one, not two but THREE teeth. Both bottoms are coming in and the other top. So now she has FOUR teeth. Emily is getting in her third bottom tooth and an upper I believe. I think I felt something. So they have both been crabby and restless lately and this answers that.

Taylor is Crawling!!!!

WOO HOO!!!! I've been meaning to update. It officially started on Saturday. Yeah!! Now the fun begins.

Saturday we went over to Unlce TJs and Aunt Debbie's new house (they moved in that day!) to celebrate and BBQ and hang out. So of course since they were moving in, it was NOT baby proofed so that was fun running after Emily (who is all over the place) and Taylor who decided to go in the OTHER direction. LOL! But I have two moving babies now so I'm excited.

Both the girls are also giving High Fives. =) And Both will clap too. I'm working on them to start waving bye-bye.
