Here's a fun comparison shot of all three kiddos at one month old:

Dylan (top), Cora (left), & Noelle (right)*

Who looks the most alike? I think Dylan and Noelle appear most similar. We'll find out as they get bigger!

Last weekend Noelle's fairy outfit for her dance recital arrived. She is sooo thrilled. I don't know how I'll manage to keep the outfit perfect until the recital at the end if June; she wants to wear it all the time =)

Fairy Dancer

The Sciencenter was a big hit this week. The girls made bunny ears. They loved them, even if they wouldn't stand up properly.

Bubble wrap is awesome!

Rockin' the bunny ears

The last few weeks, and for the foreseeable future, I have hired a baby sitter to meet us at Sciencenter and help manage the girls while I fuss with Dylan. I'm not quite up to managing all three in public yet!

We're looking forward to the warm, sunny weather forecasted for next week. The girls are very excited about their outdoor gear.

Let summer begin

*We are getting a lot of mileage out of our baby gear. That tub, and everything else, is holding up well!

Enjoying the Porch

Our screened porch is now a fully-functional room complete with furniture. With the warmer weather, having this room done gives us much more play and relaxing space.

Great place to read

Plenty of room to spread out

Tired kiddos (Cora refused to move!)

Little Dylan will be one month old tomorrow. How did that happen so fast?

Ride 'em, cowboy

Mother's Day x3

My first Mother's Day as a mom of three was wonderful. The girls made adorable presents at school, Alex did a good job w/ chocolate and flowers, and even baby Dylan got me a coffee mug with his footprints on it.
Best of all, I spent my day with these silly three:

Hanging out in bed

A trip to the park

Getting creative w/ the definition of 'toy'

Sister Love

Little Dylan is two weeks old; still enjoying the eat/sleep/cry cycle of newborn life. Soon, though, we'll get more awake, alert time with our little man.

Enjoying a nap next to Mommy

It's fairly tough for Dylan to get his rest while the girls are around; he is in very real danger of being smothered by them =) The novelty of having a baby around will likely wear off eventually, but that time has not yet arrived!

Loving on the baby

Baby kisses

Meanwhile, friends have been taking very good care of us. I don't think I'll have to cook a dinner for Dylan's whole first month.
Enjoying some homemade cinnamon bread... not made by me =)

All of this help makes it possible for us to just focus on having fun and cuddling with the baby. THANK YOU friends!

Bubble fun
