plodding along

I had typed up a long, whiny post the other day about how hard it is to stay at home with two kids, but eh ... no one wants to read my overly indulgent self pitying. :P

Audrey still isn't sleeping more than 2 hours at a time at night, making me wonder just how bad I was in a previous life. She's sleeping in her crib more these days, and took naps for both grammy and daddy today. She's cute as can be, though -- rolling over, smiling and chatting a bunch. She loves looking at her hands and grabbing her toes, even managing to stick some in her mouth this week. She doesn't seem to mind when I put in her hearing aid, and her face lights up when she hears the little intro song it plays when it starts up.

Olivia is enjoying spring so far, making use of her sandbox and water table as much as possible. Her speech is still off the charts, and she's becoming very funny. Last night, she requested that D read her a One Step Ahead catalog before bed. She said, "We NEEEEED to go to the store to get a new trike for OE!" She also requested a trampoline, a playhouse, and the more reasonably priced "hippo head" (which we actually can't use because our tub spout isn't shaped like that). I think we probably need to stay out of Toys R Us for a while ...
