Jane Austen and a Development

I thought this was fun. :) Since I know the books so well, the answer choices made me giggle. I know at least one other person will get this since Laura Y. assures me that she reads my blog.

I am Elinor Dashwood!

Take the Quiz here!

Funny how I ended up being my favorite heroine. :)

Now, on to my other favorite subject. Catie and Nick are so smart. I have to tell you, recently I was bemoaning the fact that my twins seemed to be just like any other toddlers. They really didn't pay much attention to one another, except to take each other's toys and generally annoy one another. However, this week has seen a turning point, a mile marker so to speak, in their development. A few days ago Nicky was throwing a little fit, I forget why, but he threw himself down on the ground crying. Catie toddled up to him and started patting his back! So adorable. She now pats his head all the time, just like she does to her baby dolls, and just like Mommy does, apparently. Later on, Catie was a little crabby, so I let her play with my cell phone (an excellent distraction tool) and Nick took it from her. She, of course, started crying. When Nick realized that he had made her cry, he tried to give the phone back, but she wouldn't have it. So, he went over to the toy basket and picked out another choice toy and brought it to her. Isn't that the cutest thing you've ever heard? I thought so. :)

I WAS ELINOR, TOO!!! I was so worried I was going to be horrible Fanny, so Elinor is great, even though I like Elizabeth slightly more. She has more zip. :)
