Struggling...

It's day 25 people. I'm running out of things to write about. If you have suggestions, please, leave them for me in a comment! ANYTHING! So since it's late and I'm stumped, I'll share some of my recent "group shots."
Still cracks me up how many times people ask me if they're identical....Really? Sometimes I wish I was ballsier and could say out loud what I'm sayin' in my head!!
2 Year Check ups...Clearly they have not been vaccinated yet.
They are still sane.
And about one millisecond after this photo was taken, Ethan swung his legs under the bench so far that it propelled him forward and yep, you guessed it. He swung forward and SMACKED his face on the floor with absolutely nothing bracing his fall. He now has an AWESOME bruise over his left eye. Poor guy.

(In fact, I think the reason this photo is a tad blurry is that Mary dove for him the second she saw the feet start swinging. But it was one of those moments you just can't get there fast enough.)
All righty then my friends. I'm trying really hard to be entertaining, but I'm really struggling! If there's anything you're dying to know about, let me know!!

UPDATE: On a separate note, let me give an update on our sleeping arrangements. Currently, 2 daring bunchkins have made the everlasting leap out of their cribs. Thus, we will be approaching the transition from cribs to toddler beds in the next few days. Tips on that are always welcome. (Stacey, I'm glad to hear it hasn't been total chaos for your trio! That gives me hope!)

I just joined your blog as I have BBG trips as well. Mine are 2.5 yrs old. Your trio is SO adorable!

Mine are still in cribs as they haven't jumped out yet. I can't believe that my boys haven't even tried it. I guess they like to sleep!

Hopefully because they are such good sleepers, they will also continue to be in their beds...that will be a bittersweet day as it will be proof that they are getting too big!

I love reading your blog! My daughter is a couple months younger than your triplets, and we just switched her over to her big bed. She loves it! Although, the video monitor has been a LIFE SAVER, and is quite entertaining with a glass of wine at bedtime. :-)

YOU ARE TOTALLY ENTERTAINING!!!!!!! Don't change a thing!!! My twins made the leap wthout actually ever leaping... I just moved them. The "timer" night light has worked for lots of my friends. You get it on amazon and you set it for the times you want the kids to be awake and asleep. So the nightlight has a huge moon on it from 8pm to 7 am (or any variation) and it has a sun on it from 7am-8pm (again, any variation). We just told our kiddos they couldn't come out of their rooms until the light told them they could. Annabelle seriously wouldn't get out of bed, like she couldnt... Hysterical! Oh, and we used the gaurd rails and pushed their beds against a wall, feng shu wai be damned! Good luck!

My oldest didn't take the leap until about 2 1/2 and we would close the door .. which she would gently open and shut the door so we knew she was up and about. The first couple nights she took off all of her clothes, climbed into her sisters' crib and then took out clothes out of her dresser. And when she wouldn't quit opening and shutting her door, I would pick her up and put her back in her bed without saying anything. I think I got this from Super Nanny.

Good luck! It's tough, but if you let it get the best of you-- you will be stressed out about it. Now she just cries in the middle of the night to pee and doesn't get out of bed.

Like taking away bottles, binkies, etc. it seems like the hardest thing in the world... and when you do it-- you think "that wasn't that bad!"
