At each stage the kids go through, I think "This is the best it's ever going to be. There will never be a time when it's more fun than this age." And then Talia gets a little older, and does a little more, and makes me laugh a little harder, and I change my mind and have a new favourite age. Yesterday after we got home from the doctor's office, she made herself a stethoscope out of plastic rings and gave all her babies check-ups. Sometimes I can't believe how smart she is and how much she just knows already. Although, I guess any woman she meets who gives her a rare treat of a sucker is probably pretty important to her, ha ha.
I really love that Talia and Declan are each other's constant companion, and spend so much time playing together - even though they gang up on me now. Here's our conversation from lunch the other day:
Me: Tal, who's your best friend?
Talia: Ummmmmmmmmm.... (pretending to think really, really hard, with a big grin on her face.)
Me: (full of outrage) WHAT?!? Not Deckie!
Declan: (giggling) Daddy!!
Me: (still outraged) EVEN WORSE!! What about Mommy?
Talia: Iss okay, Mommy. You be Wooby's best fwiend.

The first time she came out, I sent her back to her bed.
The second time she came out, she was wearing her shirt from this morning and pajama pants. I sent her back to bed.
The third time she came out, she was wearing pajama pants & a non-matching pajama shirt. I sent her back to bed.
The fourth time she came out, she was wearing a pajama shirt and 12 pairs of panties. I sent her back to bed.
The fifth time she came out, she was completely naked. I gave up completely and turned on Caillou. She laid down on the couch and was asleep within a minute. I'll take it.

Ruby's gift to me for her Daddy's birthday was a 7 hour stretch last night, 15 minutes of nursing, and then a 4.5 hour stretch. I feel like a million bucks! I really hope she's still gaining well, since she's such a sleepyhead. I hate to wake up a sleeping baby to feed them!!
