About the babies

This is definitely the best section of the blog! Allow me to introduce Daniel Joseph Latts and Sophie Anabelle Latts.  Born on November 30, 2009, these are indeed the best babies ever.  OK, maybe i am biased, but really, they are.

Daniel somehow or other ended up as a red-head. Don’t ask me how.  He is the outgoing one, dare devil, into everything.  He is the one who learned to pull up in his crib and 5 minutes later jumped out of it and landed on the floor.  He is very chatty – and loves to clap his hands.

Ms. Sophie is the shy one with big brown eyes.  She is a total momma’s girl and has a little bit of stranger anxiety.  She refuses to crawl because what if she got calluses on her knees? so she sort of scooches on pulling with her arms and pushing off her toes.  She is definitely going to be the first to walk.  I also think she is starting to talk – maybe i am imagining it but when she wants me she starts to cry “ma ma ma ma ma” and she said something that sounded like “Daniel” the other day.

They are both good size.  Despite being preemies they are TALL – Daniel is in the 80th percentile for height and the 40th for weight.  Sophie is in the 95th percentile for height and 50th for weight.

I have a fabulous nanny, Vilma, who lives with us.  Vilma is from Brazil and is teaching the babies Portuguese!

I am so hopeful that this will be successful and can put this all behind us so that we can get on with the business of growing up.  That first birthday is coming!

    How great to meet our newest cousins. They are precious and will bring you much joy. Having a boy and a girl at the same time will let you see the differences between the sexes as they grow up. There really is a big difference, but both are wonderful.
    Love, Anita and Sander
