December 31 - January 9

Lynnie wanted her face to be painted like the Wicked Witch of the West.  Alanna was happy to do it for her.

Cece was not very interested in taking a selfie to celebrate the new year, but I perservered until we had a good one.

We had fun with the Kinghorns and Tammy over for a New Year's Day party.  Megan has been home from her mission to Chicago for only a couple of weeks, and it was great to catch up with her and hear about her experiences.  She also showed me her excellent missionary listening skills, and heard about our lives and everything that is going on.  (literally).

Lynnie was fascinated with Skyler and was totally his buddy all day.  She snuggled him on the couch, and even... 

...drank her milk with him.

There is nothing quite as nice as snuggling a baby when you are both sound asleep.

Showing off her new Hello Kitty pajama pants.

These girls love to pull out (what seems like) every toy we own.  Every day.  I love to watch them play together, and I love that they are good cleaner-uppers.

We had a great Christmas visit with {R} and some special friends.  {R} spent two weeks with her family in another state over Christmas, and this was our first chance to get together.  Poor Cece was not very sociable.  She woke up cranky that morning, was cranky throughout church, did not get a good nap, and was cranky through dinner.  {R} is very patient and just loves Cece no matter what.  But I can't wait until Cece is able to show that love back!

Greg and I took Cece to Primary Children's Hospital for a Hearing Clinic.  I don't know that the meeting was highly successful or useful, but we got Cece's medical records updated with how things are going now, and had 4 doctors tell us, basically, that we needed to stay the course and see how things go as Cece grows.

Having an ENT check you out is never fun.

Going out for sushi with mom and dad is fun, though.

And the most fun all day?  Playing in the bath and then drying off with the towel that was a Christmas present from my birth mom!

Lynnie has been struggling to stay in her bed all night.  She always wakes up to go potty in the middle of the night, and we had a little battle going for a few days to get her to go back to sleep afterwards and not wake up Ellie because she was throwing a fit.  We finally have it all worked out.  But sometimes we wake up in the morning to find Lynnie sleeping on the floor somewhere.  It was funny to find her sound asleep underneath her coloring table.

Cece woke up from her nap and was just so mad.  I hurried to her room to find her fruitlessly trying to get her blanket.  Did it fall out of her crib or did she purposely drop it?  Hmmm, I guess we'll never know!
