A slightly media-heavy post

Day 304

Day 29

So, it's snowing here. It was a fairly wet snow for most of the day, so there wasn't much in the way of accumulation until this evening. The claim is that we might be getting up to an inch an hour overnight, with a total accumulation of around two feet by tomorrow night. This article puts the snowstorm into context; this is only the third year on record to boast two or more storms with double-digit snowfall. (Interestingly, the previous two instances were also in El Nino years.)

Oh, what's that? You'd like more side-by-side shots of the kiddos wearing the same outfit? You are in luck!

Tom was set free after lunch today (all federal employees got a half-day on account of the snowpocalypse), so I've spent this whole afternoon and evening thinking it's Saturday today. What a lovely surprise when I remembered it is only Friday!

Soren's musical tastes continue to expand as we continue to expose him to more stuff. Well, okay, it's probably a tad early to be talking about musical tastes, as his sample set is still quite small and he hasn't really expressed much in the way of displeasure at the things we've tossed at him. But anyway. My point (and I do have one) is that he's recently added another to the list of songs he requests to have played for him. This one is Pomplamoose's cover of "Single Ladies" (by Beyonce), which I actually quite enjoy. It's funky and quirky and Soren asks for "Wuh-uh-oh" when he wants to hear it, which cracks me up every time.

Speaking of single ladies, the only one in our house has now been in the world for 4 weeks! She's starting to get a little more control over her giant noggin and will even brace her legs out to "stand" in our laps if we hold her upright, instead of just tucking them in close to her wee bum. Still likes to rock & roll all night (and part of every day), though she's been spending a little more time awake during daylight hours.

All right, that's about all I've got for now. Happy weekend, one & all.

I love Pomplamoose soooo much! Yay! I'm glad that Soren likes to dance to the Single Ladies cover. It is really infectious.

I'm especially fond of the bit right around 2:00. Very silly.
