When you get pregnant with multiples, they give them a letter Baby A and Baby B... Well of course we had to do Baby C! So I find some of the cutest things to decorate their room in... In fact we have a pink ABC on the wall... I figure how appropriate! Anyhow... what no one told me was how I would be able to tell them apart!
So I gave them colors! Aspen is White, Payton is Pink and Trinity is Purple! Any of their own personal items are these colors as well! Then we know who's is who's so on and so forth. This cuts down on fighting quite a bit! The other day someone actually said to Payton what is her color... Do you know she was like "I am pink, T is Purple, and Aspen is White" I thought oh.... ok... I was kinda shocked that she knew... I am not sure why, but I was.
I even commented to Kevin, Our poor girls
they answer things so unlike other kids get
to... Kevin was like They don't care, they
are special! For some reason this does not apply with
thier clothes! They like those being the same, but for toys,
or other things, they like it to be in their color....
One of the most asked questions we get is "How do you tell them apart" Today was no exception.. while we were at chilis eating lunch, the waitress asked the famous question and before any of us could answer her Trinity said "We have different colors of earrings!" We all stopped and looked at her, because A) She was right! that is exactly how we tell them apart and B) She was very proud of her answer!
I find it completely amazing to raise them!
And they never cease to amaze me... They are
such a gift from god... and make my heart swell
to watch them everyday! They love their older brothers... and that leaves me feeling so blessed!
On a side note, because Kevin thinks we should share this part... They like to wear the same hair bows, and I enjoy them wearing everything the same... I know, I know but I figure while I can they may as well... Well Kevin said it makes him feel like an idiot when they wear the same because then he's not sure who he is talking to! He said "Jody, people stare at me like you don't even know who your own kid is" So we go about 50/50 on what "hair pretties" we are wearing that day! :)
Just FYI for Aunt Cori, who asked me the other day what
they wear in their hair..
