September 26

I attended my 20 year high school reunion over the weekend. It was a lot of fun to spend time with my classmates and see how their lives have changed.

Here's a brand new photo of Shea from the weekend:

Earlier in the week, the restaurant Chili's was having one of their regular "Kids Eat Free" promotions. Daphne exerted her independence and blurted, "Daddy, I want to order for myself." She told the waitress with no hesitation, "I want cheese pizza, fries, and Sprite". Nothing like eating healthy, eh? She continued to tell the waitress about her finger paint kit and "Cake-Muh Station" (PlayDoh cake making station). Daphne can talk non-stop to anyone for hours (if they let her).

Last night Daphne told me she does not like boys. I reminded her that I am a boy, but she shook her head stating, "Daddy, you are old and bald. I love you. You are not a boy." Hmm, she got me there...

Here are some new photos of Shea resting on the couch:

Today is Shea's two month old doctor visit. He will be weighed, given a few routine immunizations, and evaluated by the doctor. Stay tuned for more details...

UPDATE: (11:10am CST)Shea weighs 8 pounds 4 ounces! Wow!!! And, his length is now 20 1/2 inches. I looked back to see what Daphne's 2 month old vitals were and found that she was 10 pounds 5 ounces and 22 inches long. But, keep in mind that Daphne was born just shy of 38 weeks and Shea was born at 34 weeks (so an apples-to-apples comparison is somewhat misleading).

Daphne's nightly tantrums and disagreeable nature has gotten worse over the last month. Between 4 and 8 pm, I swear she grows horns and turns into devil spawn. Well, maybe she's just being a typical 3 year old? She can be so sweet during the night like when she calls out for me to help her potty at 3am. "I love you, Daddy. Why don't you stay home from work and play with me today?" or "Daddy, you are my very best friend ever!"

Shea is gaining incredible neck control and losing the "wobbly head" typically found in infants. He still cries a lot, but honestly nowhere near as much boohooing as Daphne. Shea seems to spit up easier than Daphne (unless my memory does not serve).

By the time Daphne was two months old, I had snapped somewhere close to 4,500 photos of her. With our day to day activity busier than ever, poor little Shea has only been photographed about 100 times. Sorry if my photos appear uncomposed and rushed lately, but here are some new pictures of the kiddos nevertheless:
