RESULTS FROM DR. VISIT:
Shea has grown an inch (18 inches long).
Today he weighed 5 pounds 7 ounces.
Yay! That's an increase in 4 ounces over the last doctor visit...
Daphne seems to love her new baby brother. She loves kissing him on the forehead and once I saw her plant a big pucker right on his mouth. Her behavior has predictably gotten worse (as she is no longer the center of attention). We are trying our best to make sure she receives a fair amount of attention and love.
Unfortunately, Daphne has regressed a bit with her overnight peeing since her brother's arrival. She sleeps in Huggies Overnight Pull-ups just in case of such an accident. Hopefully, Daphne's bed wetting episodes will cease before her fourth birthday in February. Prior to Shea's birth, Daphne was staying dry all night.
Jennie and I still need to purchase a crib for Shea in the coming months. His baby room has not been decorated and remains mostly empty. Shea will sleep in his bassinet beside us in the master bedroom for a few more months at least.
It's funny how we had so much baby stuff before Daphne arrived, but after Shea was born we were scrambling to find socks and any kind of baby clothes that would fit him. Thankfully, a co-worker of mine loaned us a bunch of preemie clothes for Shea. Otherwise, he would be wearing diapers, old Daphne T-shirts, and receiving blankets only.
