First Haircut!

OK so I wont lie, I put off getting that first haircut for a long time!  We waited for grandma to come so that she could be a part of the fun!  I did a lot of research because I wanted the "first haircut" experience.  To much dismay on my part; I learned that you pay an average of $18-$23 per kid for that oh so neat experience!  There are some places with multiples discounts, but let's just say my cheap self was quite shocked! I decided on Cool Cuts for Kids which was $18 per kid with no multiples discount.  I am however Internet savvy and found a "1st time customer" coupon of 5 off each kid!  Yay me!  So it turned out not being so terrible...lets just hope I get good at cutting hair!  
It was hard to cut off Carter's long, beautiful, blond hair and Tyler's sweet curls, but Madison's wasn't as bad (because we didn't take much off hers at all)!  We started with Carter and I had to sit down after that first snip.  I told the lady I just wanted to trim it up a little, and to my horror--that first cut was no trim!  I couldn't even watch as she started the other two.  Carter looks the most changed with his new do!  Tyler's baby face is still very prominent.  Madison came out with even more of her diva personality!  Overall I was very pleased with the cuts, even though it was much more than I asked for!  The kids looked adorable when we left for all of 5 minutes until we got to our swim lesson and messed it up!  Oh well there's always next time!  

Doesn't he look 5?
I see a future longhorn in this boy!

With a purple glitter star!

Unsure about this!

Look Mom, no hands!

A very cool train table with the tracks all attached!  I need one of these!


Swim Lessons!

We took three months of swim lessons at our gym!  They were actually pretty affordable as far as swim lessons go, and they even allowed me to be the only one in the water with all three babies.  Plus we had our own class so we didn't have to worry about any other kids!  YAY Lifetime Fitness...if anyone is looking for a gym this place is a touch expensive but we have found it to be worth every penny (let me know if you are thinking about joining, we both will get rewards)!  Now that I'm done with my plug...The kids practiced how to blow bubbles, jump in the pool, get their heads under water, scoop and kick among other things I'm sure I'm forgetting.  We had a great instructor whom the kids just loved, thanks Ms.  Nicole!  The trio is doing really well at the pools this year.  They aren't afraid of the water at all...which is of course sometimes scary!  We are so excited to have our neighborhood pool open finally!  Nana Dana came with us to the pool for one of our last swim lessons, she was able to get some great shots of the kids in the pool!  Please excuse any scary shots of Mommy in my bathing suit, lol!  Can I play the I just gave birth to triplets card still?  I think that's fair enough!

Getting our toes wet!
Kick, kick, kick!

She's by far the bast back floater of the three
It's questionable on whether he
was drinking the water or blowing bubbles....

Goofing around
After!  Love this face!

Can you see the jealousy?

Party Invitation Pictures

So this technically doesn't deserve it's own post but these pictures turned out so cute I just had to share.  We took pictures on two separate days for this because the idea was to frame them and hand them out at the party.  The first day it was a touch muddy and I didn't want anyone dirty so we dressed one kid at a time for their photo shoots.  The pictures seemed perfect until it came time to put them in frames.  I was stumped at either giving three frames to each person or giving someone a picture of one of the back to the drawing board.  We decided we needed pictures of all three on the train with Madison in her cute tutu!  I do have to say both days were a success for cute shots!  

No captions necessary these were all posed, lol!

This was the second set of pictures we took, this was after their first haircut!

This was the first round of pictures that Rebecca and I took.
