Betty (aka Elizabeth Rose, Big Betty, Buckin' Betty, Betty Boo)
Betty is the serious one of the bunch. When we take her picture, she always poses as women did in the 19th century. Rarely a smile to be seen. However, she is also the fastest to laugh, and the quickest to cry. We decided that she is the most emotional, which is not helped by the fact that she is quite stubborn - she is the only one who consistently puts herself through an enormous ordeal in order to fall asleep at night. Nighttime routines for her involve prolonged periods of crying, followed by shouting, then making noises, flailing her toys around, and then finally quiet murmurs. It's just how she is.
She hasn't started crawling yet, but she does rock some on her hands and knees. As one of her nicknames suggests, she has an extremely strong torso, and refuses to sit or lay down when she doesn't want to. Holding her down on the changing table when she's bucking, is quite the challenge.
