it was a good day

 it has been frosting at night, and our one large tree is changing - so lovely! (note the frost on our neighbors' roof)
 because it was a bit too cold to play outside (with sniffles, too) we pulled out the playdough. And Em made a "mountain".

 She carefully built it layer by layer and was so proud of it.

 And Ian took advantage of the rolling pin coming apart ("Daddy fix it?") and used it as drum sticks. :)

"scary" faces

at least, that's what they call them. I think they're adorable. And sooo silly.

stopping by to announce ...

... that we are having a ...

... baby GIRL!

in about 11 weeks (or so ...) Em and Ian are going to welcome their baby sister - and boy, are they getting impatient! :)

So far she seems to be doing very well, and loves to move and punch! Other than her seemingly ceaseless movement, which I started to feel at nine weeks (and could barely believe it - wow!), I have been blessed with a relatively easy and comfortable pregnancy. Such a praise, since I need every drop of energy that I have left to keep up with her siblings!

just now this little guy is running around, serving his sister make-believe "tea" and saying "I sorry! I sorry" (because his sister can be soooo sensitive, he is learning early the need to apologize)
