On Friday night Martin sent me out to Vienna alone to get a hot drink and read by myself for awhile. It was just what I needed after a week of no naps and day-long screaming bouts from Greta.

On Saturday Martin went shooting and I stupidly waited until after he was gone to try to put Anja down for a nap--so of course, it didn't happen. When he got home he called his sister over to hang out with Anja and we went out to Pepe's for drinks and taquitos! A festive little date and Greta fit right in while wearing her Chiquita Banana Lady dress.

On Sunday we were unable to get everyone ready and out the door in time for the 7:30 or the 9:30, so we went to the 10:00 mass at St. Ann's. The girls wore not-quite-matching white embroidered dresses.

Who doesn't love a baby yawn? For the rest of the day Sunday we did yard work, and took a couple of walks.

It seems Greta has slowly gotten her days and nights completely backwards. It's too bad since there is nothing I can do to keep her awake during the day and nothing I can do to get her to sleep during the night. At least last night we made it fun by brewing a pot of [decaf] coffee and hanging out on our cozy roofed patio while it rained.

Anja looks a little dopey in this picture since you can't actually SEE the teeth she's showing off. There's another funny picture that I can't find anymore of her lifting the cat off the ground by his tail!!!
I will post another MUCH more interesting post as soon as I get the chance to sit down and write it. Unfortunately, when I go to my "edit posts" section, I look at the list and they're all labeled "draft." I really do try to keep my blog updated... it just never happens.

OH MY GOODNESS Greta is SO SWEET!! She is probably the cutest baby I've ever seen, and I bet she's even cuter in person! I love that pink and green and orange dress.

Okay I'm trying really hard not to be jealous of your little girls!! As I type this George is banging a pile of plastic army men with a sword....gotta love boys too I guess!

your girls are adorable!

Now that is just a shame. You live three blocks apart.

Greta is looking a little more like Anja all the time.
