Is 3 more terrible than 2?

The twins turned 3 at the beginning of November. We had two small parties for them. The first was with our friends and we had ice cream sundaes. For the second party with the family, we had chocolate chip cookie, brownie cupcakes.

We had some major milestones this year. The twins are potty trained, they moved up to the Junior class at their preschool, and they had their first haircuts. They also moved from their cribs into twin beds.

Colette only wears dresses and skirts, so she can twirl. She also likes to color her hair pink and gets upset when it fades back to yellow. Colette may be girly, but she is very tough. Colette is the boss around the house and when she is unhappy she likes to slam doors and sulk. She loves to swim, play tag, and ride bikes with her brothers.

Griffin is our wildcard. He is super silly and likes to make us laugh. Griffin is constantly moving and loves to dance, sing, and play the piano. Griffin is the athlete of the group. He loves to ride his balance bike and to play soccer.

The twins are still good sleepers, but they like to wake up early. They go to bed at 7:30 and are usually up by 6:30. They have a clock outside their room and they are not allowed to leave their rooms until the clock is green at 6:45. The twins are still taking an afternoon nap and some days won't wake up until 4.

The twins still worship Devlin and think he is the coolest. They imitate him and like everything that he likes.

Planes, Monorails, and Automobiles

We took Devlin to MD for a quick trip to celebrate his Granddad's 70th birthday. At the airport, Devlin could not wait to ride the monorail to the terminal. The monorail ride might have been his favorite part of the trip. Devlin was very excited to fly on the plane until we boarded. Once we were in our seats, he became very nervous. Once we took off he yelled "I can see everything from up here" which made the passengers around us laugh. Then he started to worry we were going to fall from the sky and kept telling me he had to get out of the plane. He finally calmed down after he to ordered a ginger ale and was given 3 bags of pretzels. Once we landed, we let him pick the rental car, he picked a Camry. He liked it so much he requested that we buy one.

Devlin had a great time visiting with his Granddad and Grammy before the birthday party. At the party, Devlin was excited to see his Uncles Eric and Dave. It was a long day for Devlin and he was a trooper.

Sunday morning before we headed to the airport, Nina had an amazing breakfast for us, but Devlin was too excited to eat. He just wanted to play with his cousins, Trevor and Dustin.

Devlin was very sad when we had to say goodbye to the family in Maryland. He misses them and cannot wait to go back.

Cowboys in training

At a birthday party over the weekend, the boys had the opportunity to ride a horse. They loved it! Colette would not go near the horses, she said she hated them.

Grandparents' Tea

Colette and Griffin celebrated Grandparents Day at preschool with a Grandparents' Tea. I am not sure who was more excited Pop-pop or the twins.
