How lucky to have THREE darling valentines!

I know that Valentine's Day is not until Sunday, but I just had to share these pictures of the kids. We did a little photo shoot with the new equipment that Dave gave me for Christmas. The new backdrop and lighting help me to get some great shots!

The hardest part is getting any of these active kiddos to sit still or to look at the camera for two seconds. But they were pretty cooperative this time... could it have been the lollipops?

First, our gorgeous girl...

She liked hiding behind the backdrop.

Pucker up!

She was sliding down the front of the couch yelling, "I slide!"

This one is my favorite.

I decided to do some separate shots of the boys... I really only have pictures of them together. Jack is first because he is 'older.'
His pin-up pose

What it is like to try to take pictures of twins...

See his two bottom teeth? Ben is still waiting on his...

On Valentine's Day, you should be with the one you love... like, your blue blanket.

Now the baby- Ben.

He was actually the best of the three in terms of sitting still and posing for me.

Love those baby blues.

And some of the boys together. Jack on the left, Ben on the right.

Hey, did you get one of these lollipops, too?

As for things the kids love right now, Mairead is OBSESSED with Elmo and the rest of the gang on Sesame Street. She LOVES Elmo ever since Brian and Christin took her to see Elmo Live! She also loves running, and practices going "slow" and "fast." Mostly fast. She also loves peanut butter, lollipops, and arranging her 27 friends in her crib before she goes to bed.
Jack loves yogurt. He wants to eat it for every meal. He will sometimes refuse other foods until he gets some. And, if I don't offer it at a given meal, he whines when I clear his tray, telling me that the meal can't be over until he has his yogurt.
Ben loves food. Any food. Any time. He also loves stalking the cats and trying to get his hands on my lap top.
Both babies love Mairead and want to be wherever she is. Mairead does not love this. They also love each other- if I put one up to bed alone, he cries until the other comes up, too. They laugh hysterically at each other before going to sleep and then again when they wake up.
We have so much love for these kids- we are lucky to have them on Valentine's Day and every day! Happy Valentine's day to all of you!

Cutest Valentine's EVER. (Will calls it ValenTIMES) What kind of equipment did you get? Big flashy lights? Backdrops? Wow.

Great pictures! (has Mairead seen Yo Gabba Gabba? I am not a huge fan, but Will is now obsessed)

I love the black and white pic of Mairead. GORGEOUS. And you, too, have some heartbreakers on your hands with those blue eyes on the boys! Maybe Will, Jack, and Ben can hit a club when they're older just to see how many girls fall in love with them. SERIOUSLY!
