A New Season ... Spring!

I think Spring is really here now. It's been a long time coming. Over the winter we've accomplished a lot. More than I ever thought possible ... and more than I dared to hope for.

All the baby things are a thing of the past. We pretty much have our house back now. Our toys are now activity or educational things, and things they can pretend play with. We've cleaned house "by the bags full" with things they've outgrown or no longer play with.

They sleep in big kids beds now. Cribs are long gone. So are the crib tents that kept them in bed at night too. I have to admit ... I miss those! A lot!

They talk. They talk a lot. They are mini-recorders and repeaters. Their favorite question is, "Why?" Then it's endless explaining. The greatest thing now is their memory. They remember everything ... and are like sponges. Soaking up their great big world.

They know numbers, and ABC's. They know shapes and colors, and are identifying letters and sounding out words. They are singing songs and praying ... and they are still best friends.

They are potty trained. Completely. The days of thousands of diapers are long gone. I thought it would be a bad memory, but it's fading slowly ... and they now just go on their own. ... and they go, and they go .... and they go. They go, every where we go. It's endless the amount of time we spend in a bathroom. Just like in the beginning, it almost has us home bound again. Of course, being triplets and in every thing together ... when one goes, we all go! But, it's progress!

It's a new season. One with many changes from last year ... and one that I've been looking forward to for a long time. It's Spring!

Be Blessed Everyone.
