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.
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!
