Lovely Dina

A full day of travelling and she was the belle of the ball. She had
grown men goo-gooing, children ooo-ing and ahh-ing. "what a (good,
happy, pretty, sweet, insert compliment here) baby you have!" Dina
played to the crowd, smiling, cooing, NOT sleeping. And here I am at
4am, blogging and not sleeping. Yeah. My baby is cute.

I took the girls to the doctor yesterday. Dina had her 5 month shot and Emma had her 3 year check-up. They are both thriving, Dina maybe a little more so! She is holding steady at 11 kilo but she's gotten quite long--74 centimeters.

Emma is an above average 101 centimeters and a slim 15.7 kilos. The doctor complimented her on her language skills. She was very impressed by how she could switch between English and Danish.

Emma was so sweet to Dina when she got the shot. She stood by, very curious about the whole procedure and then hugged and kissed Dina when she cried. Of course this morning we were back to, "you're my mommy, not hers!".

Dina had a tough night. She was pretty feverish and uncomfortable. None of us got much sleep. She's sleeping now and I'm going to try to do the same.

Emma at the salon

Emma got her hair cut this weekend. She really wants to grow long "princess" hair, but at age three, she won't keep anything in her hair to hold it back. So she has short bangs and we're trying to grow out the back.

The hair dresser added a pink heart to her hair and there were many tears when we had to wash it out. I wonder sometimes if I'm responsible for the pink, the dresses, the make up and nail polish obsession. Or does she just come by it naturally? Maybe at 15 she'll start wearing black and stop shaving under her arms to rebel.

After the hair cut we went to LEGOLAND and had some nice Emma and Mommy time. I'll worry about the rebellion when it rears its ugly head.

Like a baby

Dina hasn't been sleeping well the past few days and I guess it caught
up to her while I was having lunch at the cafe.

A satisfied birthday girl. She didn't quite understand that the party was for her, but she knows where to find the camera.

LEGO cake

More cakes for children's birthday parties... I baked the cakes for
Emma and Anders birthday party at LEGOLAND today. Emma's cake was a
layer cake version of the pink princess cupcakes and I made this blue
LEGO brick for Anders. Both cakes were chocolate with cream cheese

I'm obsessed. Let them eat cake...
