The girls are sharing a room in our new home and we can't believe how well they've adapted to the change. We thought it would be fun to have a playroom in this house and thought that maybe they would like to share. It appears we were right because everything has been going great. It's been fun to do the whole bedtime routine together and put the girls to bed at the same time. When we say goodnight to them and turn out the lights, Franny will often say, "Bye-bye Mom, bye-bye Dad," then in a whisper, "Hey.... Sophie!" We always wonder what they talk about once we leave.
Franny took a 3 hour nap after church yesterday, which is unusual for her- she doesn't even take naps most days. We expected her to stay up late, but she surprised us and asked for bed at 9:00. So we put them both to bed and I made some chocolate chip cookies. Bobby went to check on the girls while they were baking, and after his glance first fell on Franny's empty bed, he looked over at Sophie's crib and saw a very mischievous smile coming from one very awake Franny. She had crawled into Sophie's crib, and Sophie was actually sleeping through all this! So Bobby put her in bed and came back out to tell me what happened, and then we see Franny walking out of her room, and she looks ready to party. I stifle my urge to laugh and calmly say, "Oh no honey, you need to go back to bed." She turns around and starts bouncing back to her room, saying, "I'll be right back!!" Bobby tucks her in bed again and Franny seems to accept the fact that she has to go to bed, but not before she asks Bobby for a glass of water. As Bobby is on his way out, Franny starts singing, or from the way Bobby describes it, sort of rapping, "Uno, dos, tres...."
