Snow break in North Carolina

We had snow on Tuesday and we all stayed home as both work and daycare were closed. Louise enjoyed playing in the snow but didn't like wearing her mittens. However today she was happy to wear them inside!
Louise has also enjoyed playing with her soft toys, wrapping them up for sleep and cuddling them. There is some video of her doing this below.

We have started a second naming poll to include a few other names. Lauren was the most popular name in the first poll with 56% of the vote so that name has moved over to the new poll. Thanks for your vote!

Having a ball

We have all had a good week except for Louise, who fell over a couple of times and scraped her nose and forehead. She is doing better at identifying colours and shapes and is sleeping very well - we managed to sleep in this weekend to 7:30am!!

Week 23 checkup

Alison had another ultrasound and check-up this week and the twins are still doing well. She will continue getting fortnightly check-ups until 30 weeks and then they become weekly. She is also now getting progressively more tired and will be working from home more.

Getting back into the routine

We can tell that Louise has settled back into her routine at daycare because each evening and morning we get "Kate Kate" which is her way of saying Katie, who is Louise's best friend at daycare. We will hear Louise saying "Kate Kate" as she wakes up and before she says Mommy or Daddy.
Louise has also started to show some interest in numbers and counting. Alison asked Louise to count to ten and got the reply "nine", or maybe she was saying "nein" which is German for her current favourite word, NO!
There have been five responses to the name poll, if you haven't voted yet please feel free to.

We have had a good start to 2009 and Louise has been helpful in making Brownies for our neighbours and putting away the Christmas tree and baubles.

We have added a poll on the right hand side, please vote for your favourite girls name. Unfortunately we were limited to four choices. [Please note we are not bound by the polls result!!]
