Hana and Enid

Holly has finally figured out that SHE is Holland and SISSY is Eden. When I get her up in the morning she asks "Enid?" When I put her in her chair to eat, she points to Eden's chair and says "Enid chr." And any time she meets someone new and is feeling a little shy, she points to her sister and says, "Enid" to get the spotlight off of her.

Even more recently she is starting to say her own name, "Hana." She'll point to different body parts and say "Hana her (hair), Hana bey (belly), Hana no (nose)." She'll also point to other things that belong to her and make sure we know, "Hana chr (chair), Hana coat, Hana bankie (blankie)." It's very cute, watching her journey of self discovery.

I've heard and read before that it can take twins a little longer to figure out what their names are. It takes some time for them to distinguish who is who, and for a while they will answer to both names. But now, she's got it. Hana and Enid. Nice names. Wish I woulda thought of them...

I have cousins that are identical twins. They have a much younger sister and when she was FIVE years old she looked from one to another and said to her mom, "Mom, there's TWO!" She thouhgt they were one being for the longest time... even called them Jimjoe (instead of Jim and Joe)

You just got to love baby language. It is too cute! Glad to see the girls are doing good and you and John of course. I really enjoyed the pics from the cider mill. It looked like everyone enjoyed themselves. I can't wait until we can take Marley when she can enjoy it too. Have fun this weekend, I'm getting away next weekend for a hair show. I am excited and nervous I have never stayed longer than one night away from Marley.
Love you all, Heather, Jeremy and Marley
