I just love this picture of my helpers making cookie dough before this year's cookie party.

Hair today...

I just trimmed Colton's mullet. Unfortunately now it looks a bit like a short bob. Next time J goes for a haircut I think C will need a real one.
 In other hair news... The girls can kind of wear ponytails. They tend to pull them out but for a few minutes they look cute and Ainsley will walk around saying "pretty,pretty!"

Own It: The Campbell Family Teaser

And here is the :30 spot that aired on TV and online A LOT.  There is also a print version that has been running in Maine Biz.

Own It: The Campbell Family Story

I don't think I ever shared the original spot.  Here is the longer web version:

Maine Credit Unions Commercials

I learned this week, there was a new Credit Union spot running with some of our footage from last year.  I rarely have time to watch TV so its no surprise, I haven't seen it live, but I was able to find it online.

I've been so terrible about keeping up since the triplets. I know I've neglected to document major milestones and do updates after doctor's appointments.  I keep saying I'll go back and do it but in the mean time, I find myself thinking about making quick posts of funny day to day stuff because I so enjoy going back and reading those. But I get discouraged thinking I should n't do post like that till I've noted the last three well baby visits or shared a video of all three babies running.

 Anyway... Today I decided I'm over it. Maybe one day I'll go back and catch up,maybe I won't but that's okay. I'm not going to let that stop me from blogging periodically with funny shorts.

Today two cute things happened that I know I will read in a few years with a smile.  J made a friend at the library and when it was time to go he said, "I have to go home, but I don't have to nap today."less than 5 minutes later, he fell asleep in the car on the way home-a1.5 mile ride.

At nap time, I put B down first, then changed A and put her down, while C was still wandering around the room. as I'm putting A down I look over and find C with his little face pressed up to B's crib, sticking his arms through the slats, trying to get to her. I'm not sure if his intentions were good or not, it's possible he was trying to tuck her in, get her up to play or maybe steal her blankets, it's hard to know, but it was pretty darn cute to see. I'll always be a sucker for watching them interact.

J recently stopped calling M "Kenna". She is pissed. He'll say "Mackinna" all grown up and she'll shout,"don't call me that!!" 
Um Hen, it's your name... She says he is too little to be saying it properly already!

J-mo is 3!

Well despite Jameson saying he didn't want to get bigger, my boy turned three! Initially he was excited knowing after Kaden's party was his but then suddenly and very seriously he declared he wanted to stay little! He said he needed to find a way and was going to "talk to his teacher, Mr Cornjacks (at pirate school)and see if he knew a magic way to stay little. As his birthday got closer he seemed less concerned about growing older and more focused on cake, his party and presents!
He had a lovely pirate party at camp with all his best buds over the weekend and on his actual birthday, Thursday got to go to Dunkin donuts to get a coolata and donuts for breakfast, then to dance class where his friends sang to him.  He came home and ate lunch and icecream cake and opened a couple of presents from us.  He was delighted with gummy bears and a jake the pirate book and notebook!  Then off to the older kids' track meet. The town of Casco even had fireworks for him on his birthday! He continues to celebrate by having us put candles in left over cake and sign each time he eats some. (And by eat some, I mean lick the frosting off!)
The kid is a delight! He has the best manners. He thanks us for everything and always rushes to the door when I get home from work to ask how my day was.  It's adorable. He says he is going to be a football player when he grows up. he loves eggs, blueberries and Mac and cheese. He likes to jump on the "bounce-O-leen" and swing, read (the same books over and over again) and play with the big boys. Jake the pirate is his favorite show (only one really).  He continues to be an amazing big brother- not a day goes by where he doesn't say, "oh they're so cute!" I had said I would cut his hair by his 3rd birthday, but I take it back.  It's so curly and lovely in the summer heat- maybe in the fall...

Bad blog

I just noticed all these old posts that never published and told them to "retry" but now the post dates all show as today and I won't ever know when Ainsley really cut her tooth or when the post titled "last week" really took place.  I'm so annoyed.  Grrrrr

Step up Day

This girl is "stepping up" to the middle school today!  What?!?!?


It's harder than you'd think to get pictures of the teeth!  Ainsley's got 2 now and Brinley has one that just broke the surface!

Last week

Lots of exciting things happened here last week!

Brinley slept through the night for the first time Sunday night (and second time Later in the week)

Brinley's first tooth broke the surface Monday.

Colton had a weight check on Wednesday and is up to 13-7.

Kaden got an improvement award for addition and subtraction at the school assembly.

Spring finally appeared!

Friday night was the first time 2 babies slept thru the night at the same time.  So I only got up once!

It was picture day at dance.  (I'll post some photos that M allowed me to take!)

Triplet update

I guess with kids 4,5 and 6 it was bound to happen... I haven't documents their well baby visits on here like I should, I rarely put updates on what they are doing and only post pictures once every now and then.  Things are busy here to say the least but I need to find the time to share because I do love looking back at what I've written about the older kids.

Today was exciting for a few reasons.  Brinley passed Ainsley in the race for the most teeth.  She must have cut #3 and 4 overnight.  Ainsley's only got 3, Colton still just one.

Today Ainsley signed more for the first time!  She's the first to do that!  She really likes eating so it makes sense...

Yesterday Colton started saying" uh oh!" He did it a few times.  So cute!

Less exciting and more annoying... Ainsley has figured out how to escape from her high chair and crawl across the table :( she is trouble.

The girls have been letting go when they are standing now too.  I haven't seen Colton try that yet though.

Gummy smiles

Colton has the best gummy smile, so I'm kind of sad to announce- he cut his first tooth this week, just shy of turning ten months.  While this was a couple months behind the girls it's still earlier than the older three, big time.  My babies are growing too fast!!!

Today I said something about maybe going to the park but I was worried it would start raining.  J told me not to worry, he can make the rain stop!  Obiviously I had to inquire how he planned to do that.  His response?  "I'll fly around and catch it all before it hits the ground!" ...Yup
