No Surprises (except for the bald eagle)

Even Sira flipping off the chair onto a hard floor is no cause for alarm (but only because he got right back up, of course!). He repeated the same flip later that day off his booster high chair; he climbed up when I wasn't looking and flipped out accidentally--for about the third time this week! How much can one head and one mama take? Geez they make baby heads hard, thank G. Really, I'm not a bad mama, I'm not. I didn't know he was going to flip at the moment I grabbed my camera and turned it on the boys playing. . .

Anyway, here are the boys playing, bumping heads, and shortening the furniture's lifespan. Look at those adorable chubbo legs. Don't you want to kiss those knees and pinch those diaper bums? And don't miss Bereket's cheese and Tsega's gymnastics. And if you're a Radiohead fan, turn up the volume (it also explains the title--anything to plug my favorite band).
Later that day we were finally able to go outside, walk though the grass, get muddy, look at the river flowing by, and feel a warm sun on our faces. Man what a winter it's been and we are so sick of walls! And to top it off, a bald eagle flew overhead. That's at least one good thing about Kansas: bald eagles during the winter season. A couple of years ago I would get an itch to see one, and all I had to do was go outside and wait about 5 minutes before one flew overhead. But this year I haven't seen a one until yesterday (and today), just when the season is almost over. It wouldn't have been a real Kansas winter without at least one eagle sighting. A sign of more good things to come, I'm sure :).

Helen loved this video (and her Mama enjoyed it too). I love love love watching the way your boys play together. I am hoping she didn't get any ideas though, since she is nowhere near the daredevil your boys are. She was grooving to the music while she watched.

BTW - our wedding song was "nice dream" - we're fans too :)

Oh my gosh, they are just so gorgeous!!! What amazing blessings! I love the picture a few posts back of the three of them sitting on the couch together. They are all SO adorable! :)

Glad your boys have such thick skulls with all the bumping that goes on! :-)

Also, I wanted to let you know I "tagged" you on my blog (one of those things where you're to post 7 random facts about yourself on your blog). Chrissy (who adopted in the US 2 years ago) tagged me on her blog. :-) If you look at hers you can see that the list doesn't need to be as verbose as mine was, LOL!

Little Man & I have watched your video's of the triplets over and over again. Several mornings in a row he would say "I want to watch the babies". You are one busy mama. They have climbing mastered!
