Rolly Polly Ollie

The twins are rolling!! Front to back and back to front they are rolling! I can't believe they are already big enough to do this! I'm also saddened by the fact that I can't remember when Jr first rolled. He hated to be on his stomach. I honestly think he may have walked before he rolled! LOL... He loves that his brothers can roll and lays on the blanket on the floor with them and shows off his rolling skills too! They are so in awe of him. I think having him around truly helps inspire them to do new things and he will surely keep them developmentally on track! He is so excited that they are getting more able bodied and are interacting with him more. We are in for some serious trouble once they are all mobile! I don't know how we are going to keep up! Sr and I need a gym membership to get in better shape before that happens!!!

The Zoo

Yesterday we took our first trip to the zoo. I couldn't believe we hadn't taken Jr to a zoo yet!! Once we got there and I was buying tickets I suddenly realized all the places we needed to go before he turned 2 (after that he's not free most places LOL!!). I guess the next month will be jam packed visiting museums and such! We are thinking that will be a fun Christmas gift (memberships to places) and a great way to spend our time together! We had a membership to the Aquarium but he suddenly hated to go there so we didn't renew it. He is in to fish now and perhaps we will try again soon.

Anyway, we went to the LA Zoo because Buddy the T-Rex from Jr's favorite show Dinosaur Train was going to be there to take pictures with the kids. I was super excited. So the boys and I snagged Auntie Glo and we were off. Bug and her parents met us there and we had a nice day together seeing the animals. Yuri really wanted to go in and be with them. I think a petting zoo is going to be next on our list so he can interact with the animals!

The weather was on the warmer side so we tried to keep ourselves in the shade when we could. We all realized we are extremely out of shape and walking up the hills pushing a triplet stroller or carrying a toddler is a LOT of work! Everyone survived with few tears shed and the twins even napped!

I can't wait to take them on another zoo trip (perhaps the Santa Ana Zoo since it's flat! ;)...)
Pictures will be up on shutterfly and facebook soon!

Grandpa love

Jr loves his Dido/ Gigi. He loves to play with him, walk with him, watch movies with him, cook with him.... really he just loves to do anything he can with him! Now that I'm working Babcha and Dido watch the boys on Fridays. When I get off work and come to pick them up Yurchik refuses to leave. He has to stay and play longer with his Gigi. He's adorable! They love each other. Yurchik is truly a life saver as he is helping to make sure that his Dido stays healthy! Yesterday, Jr walked around the house yelling, "Dad!" trying to find Dido... maybe he thinks dad and granddad look alike! LOL... He is able to say Gigi and when you talk about him he gets all excited. We are so blessed to have such wonderful family around us... not just Babcha and Dido but all the grandparents, aunts and uncles and cousins and extended family and friends. It's so nice to know how loved we are! We love you all (even if mom gets sad that Yurchik chooses dido instead of her! ;) ).


Yurchik loves his rubber duckies. He seems to have a million of them. They are different sizes, colors, themes and he loves them all. The ride the rodes like his cars (which he loves as well) and he always has to have one wherever we go. Tonight we went to dinner in Long Beach and in the center where the restaurant was located is a water area... little ponds with fountains. As we walked around we came upon REAL ducks. Yurchik freaked out! He was saying "duck, duck, duck" and went to try and get one. They of course, jumped into the water and swam away and he just watched in amazement. He knew they were ducks. Real ducks and rubber duckies look nothing alike. I was in awe! On top of that there is a house a few doors down with fake ducks in their bushes. Well, he spotted them as well! He truly is a genius just like his poppy says!
