Big Kid Beds

We are crib/toddler bed free in our house.  I wasn't quite ready for this, but we went out looking for furniture a while back and ended up ordering it.  It was delivered a few weeks later and they've been sleeping in their big kid beds for the past few weeks.  The girls got loft beds with the dressers that fit underneath.  They LOVE them.  They get to climb a ladder and have a ton of space now for all of their stuffed animals.  Little Tony actually still has the same furniture.  His crib actually converted to a full size bed and man is it nice and comfortable.  Sometimes I want to fall asleep there with him.  He has his own room and the girls are together.  I always felt sad with the thought of separating the three of them, but the thought of it was worse in my head than the reality of it all.  They did great and we didn't have any problems.  They surprise the heck out of me on a regular basis!

He moves around ALOT!

I'd also like to point out that everyone is potty trained and actually have been for the past few months.  Amelia and Tony were the first to come out of diapers - Olivia was the hold out, so one day we just told her there were no more diapers and she's been going on the potty ever since (during the day).  There were a few accidents here and there, but actually none recently.  Toward the beginning of the year they'd be fine during the day and we'd put them in a pull up if we went out but they've been doing fine even when going out.  We often have to make random stops to find every bathroom which can get annoying but necessary.  They still get a pull up at nap time and bed time -  Olivia and Tony are typically dry in the morning and nap time along with Amelia.  She, however usually has a wet diaper in the morning, but doing great otherwise. 
I guess when we were using diapers, I never thought we'd get to this point, but time moves on and things change.

Happy Easter

This past weekend we celebrated Easter.  The weather is slowly getting nicer here in NJ but it was pretty windy.  We did our own egg hunt in the backyard, but because it was so windy the eggs got blown around a bit. 

We did another hunt over at T's mom's house.  It worked out fine, but Uncle Steve told everyone they were looking for 8 eggs a piece, but it was actually only 7 so we were looking all around for a bunch of eggs that weren't hiding.  Oh well, they all had fun!

Here are some pictures of the day!
