So I showed some pictures of the girls to a friend of mine, mother of two lovely kids. Continue reading → Teaching lessons to babies (?)

Alicia has developed a love for books and likes to harass her daddy asking to be read to. Mr H keeps hiding them away, yet she keeps finding them over and over lol
Ana loves to dance when we sing to her rock songs and slaps her bum when we sing Sir Mix-A-Lot. ——————————————->
They sing “baa baa” to us when we sing baa baa black sheep to them. Or “ya ya ya yaaaa” when we play the reggae song of the big bugz band. It’s the sweetest thing.
Alicia has entered tantrum world. It’s atrocious, it happened without prior warning. My goodness can she scream and hit the floor with her firsts and feet. After a month of eating for ten, she’s decided eating isn’t really her stuff these days. Doctor says nothing’s wrong with her as she’s really alert and happy and doesn’t present any sign of malnutrition or dehydration. so we guess AND HOPE it’s related to the tantrum/control phase she’s in.
The tantrum phase started when she started to walk. Maybe the brain takes steps like that… she had a growth spurt, she obviously leaped forward in development and with it came the next phase in life which is the “me me me” phase.
At least Ana, who used to be the “me me me” baby of the three, has been magically replaced by a super fun, always laughing, baby. Where have they taken the other Ana? who knows? My guess is that Alicia ate her.
Laura is slowly catching up with her sisters’ size. She loves cheese, grated cheese is by far her favourite food. She’s only 100 gr behind Ana and half a centimetre behind Alicia. She’s very independent, loves to play with everything but she still doesn’t grasp well the “no” concept (although she’s getting there) and she likes to assert herself by being physically abusive to her sisters. She’s particularly fond of the hair pulling, including with two hands while sitting on their back. A bit like this stock image but add an evil smile to her.
She reminds me a bit of this scene in friends
She also raises her arms in victory every time she doesn’t something right or new and screams as if she was a WWE champion.
In short, she’s a bit of a jackass, always throwing herself head first. You wouldn’t tell when you see this sweety pie face, would you?
Anyone care to share with me if the refusing food has happened to them with their babies? did it last long? was it really just a phase? it’s weird to me and if it wasn’t for the doctors telling me repeatedly not to worry I would probably be freaking out by now.
Our babies are finally in the “Baby 2” section of the crèche. Continue reading → First graduation
Picture the scene. It’s the summer of 2016 and we’ve just collected our brand new shiny metallic red Toyota Prius. We’re chuffed to bits, I mean really pleased with ourselves. We actually ordered it some months previous but a combination of production delays, unexpectedly high sales volumes and a volcano eruption in Japan meant we had to wait to get our hands on it. Continue reading → The logistics of triplets
… Of posting super uplifting and optimistic blogs right before things go t*ts up lol
After his last post, the heatwave started to take its toll at nights and the girls started to be fussy during sleep again, Ana decided to have random bursts of low grade fevers and when she got over it, Laura started doing the same except with higher fever than Ana. The paediatrician sees nothing, there’s no other symptoms, they must be fighting something but we can just treat the fever and wait for it to pass… Alicia is nearly walking but she’s becoming super assertive and pulls enormous tantrums AND she’s becoming a difficult eater… *sigh*
So cranky-babies-R-Us is back in business ARGH!
Bottom line is, from now on Mr. H can only post things about how hard life is 🙂
