These were taken just after bath time on Sunday afternoon...

Soooo.... do you think we've been busy? If the time between posts is any indication, we are! If you're still reading this, thank you! you either use an RSS reader or you're quite persistent! Either way, thanks!
Little noises coming from two babies, 4 little arms are flailing around, 20 little toes in the air... one baby being cradled by his mother, cuddled in a blanket... We're sitting in an unusually quiet living room, sipping free coffee from McDonald's.... finally, a chance to blog... we'll see how long this lasts!
The kids are doing wonderfully - Emma weighs 10lbs, Josh weighs 10lbs 5oz, and Teddy's 10lbs 7oz! We've come a long way from 4lbs! We think Teddy's hitting a bit of a growth spurt because he's really thinning out - getting longer! It's amazing to see these little children grow! They all eat well!
They are certainly keeping us busy - eating every 4 hours - and staying awake more and more every day. It's a lot of fun to see them smile and make faces! They've been learning to lift their head's and look around; they can follow you with their eyes as you move back and forth, and they've started to grab on to things (like Mommy's hair, or Daddy's glasses...)!
We've also had a lot of "first's" - last week we went to church for the first time as a family (and again today - AND we were on time this week!!), today we also went to lunch at a restaurant (I think most people there thought we were crazy!) We're starting to get a little more mobile, and that feels good!
What other first's have we had.... one of my wonderful sons pee'd on me for the first time during bath time this weekend - usually I'm pretty good at avoiding such things, but I guess it was bound to happen sooner or later!
We are still enjoying a lot of help - especially during the week when I'm at work (and overnight, for a little while longer!)
Kristin's also enjoyed several baby showers with lots of friends and family - we have been wonderfully blessed with support, and it's been so amazing to see God answer our prayers again and again!
Joshua Bean is getting a little restless on his play mat as I type - must make it short here!
Here's a few more recent pictures before Josh gets everybody all riled up!
