Nice..... it is cold and snowing outside, so the perfect moment to try out the fireplace that came with the apartment. Don't worry: it is pretty safe, as we have both a smoke alarm and a carbon monoxide alarm. Amy and I are settling into our new routines with Annelies. It's harder on Amy than for me, but fortunately Annelies can sleep longer stretches during the night. Last night, five hours or so. Annelies behaves well when we go out. Last night we took her to a poker party at a friend's house, and she slept through pretty much all of it. Bram ranked 3 out of 11 players, not bad.
