three weeks

and three kids. wow. these last three weeks have flown by, especially when i think about having to go back to work in another three. bleh. i have actually spent a few days all alone with all three huffsters myself. it wasnt nearly as scary as i thought it was going to be.

i have discovered that it is a scientific certainty that while i am nursing arlo;
a. someone will spill something
b. someone will get hurt
c. someone wont share their toys
d. someone else will cry about it
and what can i do about it? sit on the couch with a baby attached to me and watch the newest drama unfold in front of me. apparently my voice alone doesnt carry much comfort or authority. hmm.

i have yet to try to go anywhere with all three by myself. im not sure when that is going to happen. leslie? amanda? any word on this? i thought about going to the grocery store on monday but thats about as far as it got. the thinking stage.

but enough about kids, lets talk about presents! some more goodies arrived in the mail last week! this wee bunny came to live at our house compliments of the ever talented hillary.

much too cute for arlo to handle right now, or ever maybe...

a wonderful surprise package from giao with goodies for mom and baby.
from sweet giao

and this beautiful hand-painted canvas which will hang perfectly above the crib
arlo's canvas
so unbelievably sweet. i love the little bird!

last night arlo and i went to the airport to pick up kerry. and lucky us she found some wonderful thrift stores while visiting with her grandma in olympia. who could pass up this little friend?
kerry's find
yeah, i wouldnt have been able to pass it up either.

thank you so much for the wonderful gifts. it really is amazing all the love that is in this blog community!

Oh my, I am so impressed with you on your own with the 3 mini Huffsters! I'd say even thinking about going out to the supermarket with 3 in tow is a major feat in itself. And what wonderful goodies! Hope you fnd the little bits I sent useful. Love the stuffed toys from Hillary and Kerry. So sweet!

3 is definitely the tricky number... run out of hands, run out of parents, run out of seats in the double stroller. The insanity doesn't last too long though. :) Such sweet gifts.

three weeks, no way, seems like so much longer and I'm not the one experiencing it all! You are amazing, all the best for the next three...

I was totally in awe of you with 2, so I definitely don't have any advice for 3! Beautiful gifties for little Arlo and mama!

so glad the new huffster is doing well and recieving sweet gifts. from someone who used to baby-sit 3, allow yourself at least 20 minutes to get out the door and don't have your mind completely set on accomplishing your task.

Yes, trekking three around town for the first time is scary. But if you happen to go somewhere where a shopping cart is involved. . . you're in luck.

Stick two in the cart (infant seat necessary), keep a fixed eye on #3, and shop away!

One thing, though, you don't want to do this combo:
2kids(cherry slurpee - napkins) + teething infant - spouse = FIASCO.

You're doing so grand already, Hannah!
