Grandma and Noisey come to visit

Grandma came to visit this weekend. We had a good time - but we mostly just spent the weekend sitting around holding babies. What could be better? She was terrific in helping feed the babies (at 11pm and 6am - ok - ALL through the day). Also - we've been working on the baptism plans and the sip-n-see plans for later this month.

Noisey had a chance to meet his young brother and sister. It seemed like an uneventful greeting - which was good. He actually tried to sit in Connor's Lap - until he realized Connor really doesn't have a lap yet.

The good news is that it doesn't seem that Connor or Kate are allergic to cats, and Nosiey doesn't run off anymore at the first whimper or cry from the twins. Positive steps in reconciling the family.

Kate and Connor started playing with a new toy that Kelly loaned to us. It's a Winnie the Pooh walker/chair. While they're still a little small for it, we just used some blankets to prop them up. Hays saw it and immediately wanted to know where we got it from. I though that her question was interesting, so asked her why she wanted to know. She said she loved the walker - but it turns out they don't sell them in the US anymore due to safety concerns (kids were rolling down stairs in them). Guess I'm glad I didn't put the wheels on it yet. Hey - the walker is on the main level with no stairs in site!

So far - it seems to help Connor and Kate be entertained since they can now better see their toys and grab them. Anything would be better than lying on the ground anymore. They're getting to that fun age where everything goes in the mouth - hands, thumbs, fists, toys - ANYTHING.
