Out-takes of Katy's efforts

We took several videos of Katy trying to roll over before we got the one that I posted earlier. I wanted to post this one too because you can see her latest way of talking. At about 1:30 in the video, she does her new baby talk..."bah, bah, bah". It's pretty cute.

Our new sleeping routine is working very good. They have their moments but all in all, we can't complain. They still get a dream feed between 10 and 11 after being asleep for a couple of hours and then will stay down the rest of the night. So Lisa and I, for the first time in 6 months, are getting 7 or 8 hours of consecutive sleep.

Our only problem is that we have programmed our bodies to wake up at the slightest noise coming from the nursery. Once we lay there and realize they've made it back to sleep on their own, we find it very difficult for us to fall back asleep. Maybe we need somebody to come pat our tummies until we fall asleep!

For the most part, they are falling asleep within 15 to 20 minutes but there is the occasional 45 minute cry fest. Lisa said she had a real hard time with naps today and ended up giving up after almost an hour and decided to put them back on the floor instead. A little bit later, the girls were getting tired again so the next attempt was much more successful and they slept for over an hour and a half. SUCCESS!

Weather wise in Anchorage, the snow has finally returned. It's been a tough 3 weeks or so with almost no snow on the ground but it's finally returned today. The cold air will arrive later this week so hopefully it will stick around for the rest of winter and I can get some snowboarding in soon.

Lisa's mom arrives Saturday. Great timing because Lisa and I will be celebrating our 8 year anniversary next week. We haven't been out on a date in months so it will be nice to get out and have some fun...and do some Christmas shopping.
