Vilde and Magne

Heres for those of you who don't have FB. Vilde at two months old and Magne (care of his uncle) at 3 years and 2 months. So far she's shown a fairly easy going nature, with a willingness to smile and even chuckle if provoked. She sleeps easy enough, and loves loud music, especially techno, Gary Numan or such. Right now she's asleep beside me whilst we listen to The Dead Weather's version of 'Are Friends Electric'.

Magne by comparison is not easy. Indeed, he has a tendency to whine a lot and take offence at the slightest provocation. I put this down to his being a boy as I have been told and I now accept, that young boys are far more likely to act his way, especially if they have an older sister. Having said that though, Magne is a mild mannered boy and quite friendly, even with strangers once he's decided they are not dangerous. He does have a 'warriors streak', and does like to pretend to be shooting people, but this is not his game of choice. He would much rather be playing with the vacum cleaner which he looks upon as his personal preserve (and is capable of generating a most amazing amount of noise if prevented). For some unknown reason, he refers to the vacum cleaner as the 'duck'.

Be proud - they're good looking kids...

On the subject of characters, both mine are girls, and the two of them are just as different from each other as it's humanly possible to be.... :o))

We've been wondering how Freja and Vilde will develop. They have a five year gap a brother between them.

Magne is already showing signs of advanced affection for his little sister, where as Freja regards her as more of a curiosity
