The wonders of sisterhood....

And the wonders of watching it.....
Emma surprised us a little but in a very positive way. We expected she would be very jealous of Sophia, but she is very interested and happy, and she treats her very gently. It will be interesting to see if things change when Tinna and Sophia come home tomorrow.

Sophia is now officially Sophia

Her full name is: Sophia Zoe Dinesen Kaasgaard.

Sophia, by the way, is Greek and means "Wisdom" (Zoe, also Greek, means "Life"), but I have to admit I only looked that up after we finally agreed on the name about 2 hours ago. We have gone back and forth between Sophia and Zoe for 2 months, and we just took that indecisiveness all the way by giving her both names, although you can say that Sophia, being the first name, won.

Speaking of names, I came across this at babycenter.com (geez, the sites I surf these days :-): "After three years at the top, Emily has been unseated by Emma as the most popular girl name in the United States...". And while we're at it, Emma is an old German word for "Universal", which we found appropriate when she was born.

USATODAY.com - Trend: You smoke? You're fired!
Talk about fundamentalism! How about firing people who indulge in other behaviors that are hazardous to your health. Private Pilots, it's too dangerous flying small aircrafts: you're fired. Motorcylists, it's too dangerous, "herauf"! Or if you drink more than 3 glasses of wine per week, or if you walk in city traffic, or if you are a diabetic, or pregnant, or if you refuse to document that you pray 5 times per day (to a God acknowledged by the business of course).
Geeeeez.......

Well, here is one good reason not to buy overpriced lattes from Starbucks anymore: They don't know good music and they jump on the "I will be your moral guide whether you like it or not" band-wagon.
