It’s true, Marley is alive and well. There was a sighting in Pierre Payen, Haiti just this afternoon. Lucky residents were able to snap a quick photo.
We’re on day…Oh, I don’t know what day it is anymore. The girls are doing well and so are the Rollings. We’ve had two nights in a row with no wake ups and the fussiness of Monday evening/Tuesday morning seems to be long gone and forgotten. Things were all quiet and calm yesterday evening until the erupting diaper incident that threw us for a few minutes, but after a quick rinse and a bit of a conversation about what’s more important – actually handing over the wipes, or figuring out how to load them through the little hole in the top of the box – we had everything under control and things were back to normal.
Today involved fort building and playing with random objects that I never would have thought entertaining. I love watching Hope let her imagination run. Forks have become people, foam has become a horse and a crocheted thing became whatever she could muster up. It’s pretty impressive if you ask me. Her rhyming and singing abilities are also high quality.
Phoebe has been working out today. She now holds the push up record for Pierre Payen. She’s also perfecting standing with only one finger aid. Unfortunately this means sitting all the time is less appealing and thus means more people time. I’m okay with that because Chris seems to be the people that she likes for this little bit of fun. They spent some quality time together yesterday evening and have together set the goal to have her walking before her time here is up. They’re going to put crawling on the back burner for a while. I’ve been completely surprised by Chris’ distraction tactics. Seriously, I didn’t know he had it in him. It’s very reassuring to know that he’s got a few tricks up his sleeve for when we have a brood of our own. This afternoon Phoebe discovered the fun of sitting right on the floor tiles – no towels or blankets for this little lady. The tile is much cooler and it sometimes has ants that are fun to watch and then squish. Troy & Tara, you can put the Baygon away – you’ve got a new exterminator in the family. Don’t worry, we didn’t let her eat them ;)
