Happy New Year from Alaska

Happy New Year! I hope your New Year started out a little better than ours. Katy is having a rough night so we weren't really able to celebrate the new year in. We're happy, nonetheless.

Alyssa went through a couple nights in a row where she couldn't stay asleep and woke up in the middle of the night and then a day later, we found that she had cut her first tooth. We're thinking that might be what Katy's going through tonight...although she's also a little gassy. She just hasn't been able to stay asleep and it's especially strange because she's been doing so great the last several days. Whatever it is, we'll push through tonight and tomorrow will be a new day.

I don't think I've updated on their progress lately. Alyssa is now rolling over with ease from back to front. Katy was the first to figure that one out in early December and just the other night, Alyssa rolled over in the crib during her afternoon nap. I was upset I missed it thinking like Katy, it would be a while before she did it again. Boy, was I wrong. We can't contain her any more. They are two little rolling machines. We definitely have to keep an eye on them when they're on the ground.


Many hours later....and I'm tired. It's 2am and just got Katy down for the night, I hope. Sorry no pics or videos tonight. I just wanted to say Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!!! Glad to hear the little ones are doing well. And congrats on their first tooth. I know it is tough on the parents (lack of sleep, fussiness, etc), but it is a great milestone!!!

Happy New year from the Hamlin family in Ohio! We hope 2008 is your best year yet. We look forward to keeping up with your beautiful twins through your blog.

I have to say....my 3 year old's favorite "shows" right now are the videos of your girls falling slowly into the presents under the Christmas tree. She laughed herself silly this morning watching those clips again for the 10th time. I am sure your little ones will enjoy them just as much someday!
