Time for my annual LiveJournal entry! Thanks for the gentle nudge, [livejournal.com profile] erries.

Marion turned two.

What can I say about her? She's fantastic. She went from colicky baby to absolutely delightful toddler, who tells nonsense jokes ("No cow jumping over the moon! Bwahahahaha!") and absolutely adores her little sister. She's spirited and loving and inexplicably blond and wonderful.

We met Alice.

Five weeks ago, we had another little one: Alice June Trease.

(I swear Marion has more than one shirt.)

Alice is a much easier baby than Marion was, or at least we're much better at dealing with babies than we were two years ago. I suspect it's a little of both. But unlike the first time, time seems to be moving pretty quickly. We're almost through the first six weeks—which are the hardest, I think—and she's starting to smile at us and hold her head up and look more like a real baby.

Erica wanted to know about the labor experience, so here it is: )

We moved

Two months ago, we bought a new house six doors down from our old house, and we're busy trying to get it in a livable shape. David invited his whole family over from Britain, so by Thursday we'll have six people, plus the four of us, all staying in our half-decorated house with a toddler and a newborn. And then four more people (my family) coming over for Christmas. It's either going to be delightful and merry or a big hot mess.

And that's it! Or at least the highlights. Will that do you for another year, Erica? ;)

My journal is friends-only. Why? Because some people on the internet are creepy. One time, some girl read my whole journal, saw that I had referred to her once in passing as my arch-nemesis (I was like sixteen, ok?), and started stalking me until I explained it. Creeped me out, man. Made all my entries friends-only the next day.

But I digress. I like new friends, so just leave me a comment and I'll add you right away. I just like to know who's reading my innermost thoughts and quiz results.


PS: And if at any point I refer to you or someone you know as my arch-nemesis, please don't stand outside my door for forty-five minutes until I let you in and explain why. You should know why. Doing things like standing outside my door for forty-five minutes because of something you read on the internet is the reason why.
