Aunt Karen and Uncle Kevin visit

November 18, 2012

Uncle Kevin and Aunt Karen visited with us for a long weekend, and they got to witness the rapid growth of these three chickadees.  Every day is a new word, a new sign, a new skill.  Here are some highlights:

  • They sang “Little Bird” to the babies for their birthday party, and now it has become a Pied Piper song–anytime the babies were fussy, Karen would sing it, and they would instantly calm down.

Karen and Kevin sing to Audrey.

  • They got good exercise running with us, and chasing Jamie around the aquarium.
  • They have declared Jamie a musical genius:  he can sing the tune of “The Wheels on the Bus” and can imitate other notes.
  • Jamie walks around with his toy cell phone saying “Heh-ro” (they actually don’t really use the classic toy rotary phone we have–they never see us using something that looks like it).

Karen reads Frog’s Friends with Jamie.

  • Karen taught Theresa A – E of the alphabet.
  • Theresa has started asking to be picked up by wrapping her arms around both a person’s knees and saying, “Up-bup-bup-bup…”

Theresa poses with Uncle Kevin.

  • Audrey says “Karen” and “Kaahhhn” (Kevin).
  • Audrey has started saying “o-KEY.”  I guess I say “okay” a lot, because she doesn’t necessarily say it after I do–sometimes I ask her if she wants me to walk with her, and she says “o-KEY.”
  • Uncle Kevin got in some good pirate conversations with the babies.
  • All three now say “hi” and “bye bye.”

The day after they left, Audrey said “polenta” when I brought it out at lunch (and I didn’t say it first–she remembered from last week).  Chef Aunt Karen would approve.

Reading with the niecelets and nephewlet

Everyone say “cheese!” (Audrey had something in her eye.)

    These are wonderful pictures of the triplets with Aunt Karen and Uncle Kevin. Love the one of Kevin and Theresa! Audrey, Theresa, and Jamie continue to amaze at how quickly they are learning things and everything they’re saying. Precious!

    Love and Happy Thanksgiving to all! Neal and BJ
