17 WEEKS - 20 Oct.

Ugh, what a day!! Both girls have been whining ALL day!! Most of the day yesterday and aaaaaalllll day today. I think it's because Albert has just had 1 week off, there has been no noise in the morning and the girls have slept until 8:00, 8:15, some days even 8:30. Now Albert's back at work, his alarm clock goes off at 6:30 and he gets up around 7:00. Already then the girls start stirring. After his shower, around 7:30, there's so much noise that they wake up. Even though they're real tired they just won't go back to sleep. So they whine instead. They nap for 30-40 minutes 3-4 times a day, not enough when you're not even 4 months old yet. The advantage is that by 18:30 they basically just collapse, so at least we have peace in the evenings. But it's tough being alone with them all day when they're like that. I can't wait until my parents come on Friday, even if it's only for 4 days - better than nothing!
To stop the girls whining I played loads with them today - Liva is so happy she has finally learned to laugh that she just laughs all the time, it's great. It's funny how different they are; Laia loves "playing wild" - she laughs like crazy when we throw her up in the air, swing her by the arms, play airplane, etc. Liva gets terrified when we do any of those things to her and starts crying. She's more into tickling, nudging, rubbing noses, etc. I think Laia will be a little gymnast when she gets older.
