12 - 24 Months

This always seems to be a big topic for moms of multiples... The things strangers will come up and say when we are out and about. When the kids are babies it is worse, and as they get older the comments seem to die down a little. Things like: How do you do it? Were they natural or did you do fertility treatments?

Life with three toddlers running around the house is never dull. Somewhere there is always mayhem a foot. Haley has taken to carrying her toddler chair around and using it as a step stool. Her favorite "game" is pushing it against the fish tank stand, climbing up, and playing in the water. She thinks it's one of the funnest things in the world, although our Bala sharks go nuts every time she does it. I have tried to explain it to her, but really how do you reason with an 18 month old?

Our schedule has drastically changed since going to toddler beds. We had pretty much been stuck in the same schedule since they went down to one nap around 11 months old but that is a thing of the past now! Recap: Our typical schedule as far as sleep went something like this before... Wake up about 6-6:30am, nap at 11am (usually slept for 2-3 hours), and bedtime at 6:30-7pm. I have been wanting a later bedtime for what seems like forever now. I also wanted a later in the afternoon nap so we could get out more in the mornings and do more stuff.

Well we are on day five of transitioning to toddler beds. I would like to say everything is perfect but on the other hand it really isn't that bad either. Night time is going pretty smoothly. They usually insist on all piling into one of the beds. This wouldn't be a huge issue except when one starts getting to rolling on the others there is a brief upset in the room.
