Bye, bye diaper table.

With toddlers I am learning that everything has to be looked at as a possible weapon or way to create harm. Yesterday morning I was telling Beau that I don't think the diaper changing table in the den is going to last much longer because of the way the girls want to climb on everything. Well, 3 hours later....

TA DA!!!!

The changing table is now moved to the safe zone (aka the guest bedroom/girls closet). We still have the changing table that is in their room and so far it is working with just one "station". I'm sure by the end of the week something else will have to be moved or reconfigured. Besides the changing table this week, we have had to move pictures from the wall because they can now reach and an area in the kitchen has had to be changed because of some very long arms with sticky fingers!!!
Here is Skye looking cute (as usual)
Don't we all wish we could wake up and look this good??
JuJu has gotten very resourceful in her need to climb. This time she used Daddy's arm.
After climbing up, Rayne rewarded JuJu with sharing her bottle. (yes we are working on getting rid of those)
I just couldn't resist how cute this was! The girls really do love their books. At times they literally devour it! Brown Bear, Brown Bear is one of absolute favorites.

JuJu looking so sweet (right before an attack of some sort).

My little nurturer of the bunch.

The girls have all been pretty good considered 3 of the 4 have double ear infections, all have very running noses, and we've been to the doctors more in the last 2 weeks, than we have since last Nov!!! That doesn't count how many times we have called on Aunt Liz for a quick check. I cannot thank her enough for her help. (She's a pediatrician and lives 5minutes from the house. And yes, I really do thank God everyday for that).

I want to thank all of you who have been leaving comments or emailed me. I'm really glad you are enjoying the pictures and updates.

Why do our children think they are part monkey? My boys are climbing everything. .

Couldn't help but notice the glow worm. My boys love theirs!!

I felt so old when my babysitter had to ask me what it was!!

I agree with Cherie - what is the deal with the climbing?? We are working on staying on the floor but they are allowed to climb on the couch - yes, they've fallen a bunch but they get back up and go at it again - no big deal. This and the beds are a big draw :)

Here's to little monkeys!

I guess this is the monkey stage! Mine love to climb. Luckily for me I only have 2 that are really successful climbers. Joshua can climb but because of his CP it is a bit more difficult so he isn't as successful. I don't know how you do it. I think we should be given extra arms when we give birth to more than 2 at a time!
