I have no pictures for this but I had to record it so that when they get older someday and tell me they don't like each other I can remind them just how much they did! Apparantly one of the greatest things about being a multiple is that you always have someone to hang out with and get in trouble with and every night is like a slumber party. This has been true for a while late into the night. The girls "talk" to each other and bang on their cribs and the walls. It takes them hours sometimes to finally settle down and go to sleep.
What I haven't heard before is the same thing in the middle of the night but last night at about 3:30 I was awakened by Alyssa's yelling. Not crying mind you but yelling. She was "talking" to her sisters. I could again hear cribs rattling and toys playing and all three girls were involved in the after midnight party. A full 45 minutes later Alyssa's talking turned into a bit of crying so I finally went in to settle them all down. Rachel was standing there smiling at me and everything that had once been in her crib was now on the floor. It's a fun new game - throw everything on the floor, leave nothing behind.
Julianna appeared to be trying to sleep with a blanket over her head to block out her sisters. She peeked out from time to time to see if maybe the other girls were getting something better then she was. Alyssa was just fussing for no real reason except that she wanted the xylophone/piano toy on the floor. You can imagine how beautiful that sounds at 4:30 in the morning!!
So, while I was not thrilled to join their party at 4:15 AM, I am glad to know that they always have each other to party with and I hope that they always do! Though next time I do hope they keep it down a bit...
