"I love dinos."
"I love squirrels."
"I love cookies."

Rory is getting so strong now - lots of holding her head up. Also, she manages to turn herself about 90-180 degrees during the night. Weird.

On Friday, we set out to Target to get Christmas ornaments for the girls, and we came back home to decorate the tree. Leah says "merry Kristen!" when we turn on the tree. Yesterday, she said "turn on the fi-place. I cold. Brrr."
The Roommates continue to do amazingly together in their room together. Last night, they both slept from 7pm to 7am with no wakeups in between. Awesome.

Rory Kate spent her day snuggling in front of the fire. Smart girl.

We visited Clara at her new house, and Leah decided that Clara is her "besssssssss friend." So sweet.
Later in the week, we went to yoga, and Leah had a blast. In the past, she seemed to get a bit overwhelmed and overstimulated, but this time she really enjoyed herself. She even stood up during "moon toe" to say "TREE POSE!!!!" and then did it. Anna her instructor thought it was hysterical.
Leah has started pretend play this last week - lots of playing with her dolls and stuffed animals, and having them talk to each other (and kiss each other!)
Sunday was our playgroup practice thanksgiving - it's amazing how big these kids have gotten. A year ago, they were all just laying on the floor, and we were so eager to have them running around. And we definitely had that this year!
Monday it snowed! Luke stayed home, and although he worked, the girls and I had a great time drinking hot chocolate, reading in front of the fire, and playing in the snow :)
And sweet sweet Rory. She's a different gal these days - really recognizes us and wants to have us around. She still loves her jungle gym, especially when she's able to grab the hanging toys!

Last night, Leah peed on the potty... only, because she was so excited, she started jumping up and down while she was still going. Whoops!
Rory is a sleeping champion. She goes to sleep around 7:30pm, and sleeps until 4 or 5, wakes up for a quick snack and then crashes back out for a few more hours. She had her 2 month visit with Dr. Kilburn today - stats are:
24.5" (95%), 12#13oz (90%)
She's a growing lady! She's been smiling a ton recently, and we love it :)

On Sunday, we required a rest day. Went for a run in the morning, and snuggled up the rest of the day, and really, most of the week. We left the house for a few runs in the double BOB, red cup day at starbucks, itsy bitsy yoga (and Rory's first playdate on her own with Clara!), and a trip to the mall with the O'Connor ladies.
All of the rest was probably a good idea, because both of the gals came down with colds on Friday night. Fortunately, there's lots of Kipper on Netflix, lots of juice in our fridge, and lots of blankets to snuggle with.
