Logan threw his hands up in the air and yelled YES! when we told them. Riley was stoked, Emmie said "No, I don't want two boys! I don't like boys!" We'll work on her.
So, the very stinky feet will outnumber the mildly stinky feet. Trust me, Logan's feet have a level of stinkiness unreachable by my daughters.
Riley - Yeah, but he doesn't get hungry very often.

For the curious...
In a step of HUGE progress, Emmie announced today that she's willing to give up her crib and is ready for a bed, and that the babies can have her crib. My unusual three-year old has been extremely attached to her crib and has fought off any mention of moving her to a bed thus far. I also told her I'm not buying any more pullups and she's going to have to learn to go potty on the toilet. She agreed that it's time and said she's ready. So we'll see how this goes. She really hasn't wanted to so far.
Riley said (about the twins) that she doesn't care what they are, she just wants one to take care of. We'll see how long that desire lasts after they arrive...

more Logan and Emmie
Emmie - I am NOT a human being!
Logan - Yes you are, Emmie.
Emmie - No I'm not!
Logan - Yes you are, you're a human being, Emmie.
Emmie - (freaking now) NO I'M NOT! I'M NOT A HUMAN BEING!
(I think she assumes that anything Logan calls her is mean.)

Emmie - Am I gonna miss you?
Riley (at breakfast) - Let's not make this an ordeal. (Over who gets which Zoo Pal spoon.)
Riley (after driving down a big hill) - My ears have clouds in them!

Today Riley coined a new word. By mistake, I guess, because she corrected herself. She asked Logan, "Did you do that automagically?" Then corrected it to automatically.
We had a nice Christmas. It seems very long ago. My mom comes tomorrow to stay while Jeff's away in sunny California. I kept singing "California Dreamin'" today.
I'm writing like I'm tired. Short sentences are all I can handle. Supposedly I'm going to get more energy now that I'm in my second trimester. It's not kicking in yet. At least I can drink coffee again - at least usually.
We just came home from Awana and the kids are eating Clementines which they love because they can peel easily. Time for bed now (that's when I sing "it's the most wonderful time of the day" and they all say "Moh-ohhm!"
