I was hoping for a better night of sleep last night, but it was not to be. I am pretty proud of myself for calming Hazel down, however. I think Meg was even able to sleep through some of it all because she was so darn exhausted, but I haven't even had time to talk to Meg yet to ask. Henry got up really early with me too.

Hazel's been doing some pretty funny things while she's been awake. She's now nodding "yes," trying to use a fork (she manages to use it now and then, hope she can re-show her brother how!), playing with a little broom and standing a bit on her own. This weekend we're going to have some fun looking for presents for her. Hopefully Henry is agreeable to this. I'm just having a really hard time thinking of what to get her. It's not easy when you're big brother has most everything already.

Henry's sleeping has fortunately gotten a little better. He now needs a cup of warm chocolate milk (doesn't help that this is right after teeth brushing) to go down, but at least he isn't coming downstairs continuously anymore. We've had a lot fun reading some new books at night. That's definitely something I look forward to everyday. It's such a joy to watch his mind work when he's trying to find something on a page.

Yesterday I was hoping to get out of two coin slumps. It feels like a while since I've turned up a good amount of coin and long time since I've found a silver quarter. It was not to be.

28 small dollars had nothing.

2,720 quarters had just three Canadians and one Barbados 25¢.

2,200 dimes produced one silver Rosie (1962D), three Canadians, one Swiss ½ franc, one Aruba 10¢ and one UK 5 pence. That was a pretty nice mix.

1,840 nickels turned up one War Time (1942S), one Canadian, one US dime, one Aruba 25¢ and a new modern one for me, the 2011P. As far as silver War nickels go, I've now found all but the 1943D this year.

3,350 pennies rounded up fourteen Wheats, twenty-two Canadians and one US dime.

1939(2), 1944(4), 1944D, 1946, 1949, 1952, 1954D, 1956D, 1957(2)
