I think Ro is in the process of giving up her daily nap, much to my immense chagrin... She skipped her nap three times in the last week. Little Ree is still blissfully snoozing away for about two hours in the middle of each day, but her sister sings goofball songs, tells elaborate stories to her stuffed monkey, traipses back and forth to the bathroom, and lately has done anything but nap. Oh well, we'll see what happens.
A couple of recent funnies that I want to remember:
- At one point this afternoon, I peeked into Ree's room through the video monitor and saw an empty bed. !!! I freaked out for a second and then saw her in the bottom of the picture. Funny girl. She had made a bed on the floor for herself and her stuffed friends.
- After Ro had given up pretending to nap today and come downstairs she fessed up "I sleeped with Ree a couple of minutes, she not wake up though." For heaven's sake! So that explains the slamming doors I heard over the baby monitors. I can't believe her sister didn't wake up, that girl is about as subtle as a mack truck.
- We had breakfast for dinner last night -- eggs and bacon for TubaDad and I, and waffles piled high with whipped cream and gooey fruit syrup for the girls. I thought they understood what they were getting, but on the way out of the restaurant I heard them say to each other "Mmmmmm, that was GOOD pie!" Hee.
Here are a few pics from the last couple days, some of the girls getting ready for Christmas, hanging out looking cute today, and making Peanut Butter Cup Tarts:

And here's a little video taken today while the girls were amusing themselves, as they frequently do, with some boisterous "singing." Oops, there are those air quotes again, heh heh. They were playing with the little latch button on the cedar chest, pretending it was a tuner. It's kind of a long video, so maybe it's a good one to watch after you're in a turkey coma tomorrow.
Note: My D300 just returned from the repair shop, by the way, so some of the pics are taken with that camera. But it's still having big problems even though Nikon says it's A-OK. I'm so frustrated.
