January 11

Shea had his 6 month old check up yesterday at the doctor's office. He is developing well and appears to be a healthy baby boy. His weight is 13.2 pounds, length is 24.25 inches, and head circumference is 41.1 cm.

Flashback: Daphne's 6 month vitals...

Earlier in the week, Mommy painted Daphne's toes for the first time with sparkly, pink polish. My little Daphne is no longer a baby (she weighs 40 pounds, but feels much heavier than a bag of mulch).

Shea is sleeping on his tummy in his crib (usually until 2am or so), has begun eating rice cereal with puréed pears, and can roll over from his belly to back with ease. He takes 3 or more naps per day, while Daphne takes none.

Daphne loves to smooch and hug her baby brother. But, when he gets too much attention, she still asks us to put him in the garbage can. Daphne gets overwhelmingly excited when he smiles at her. "He smiled at me! He just smiled at me!" ~ Daphne exclaims.

Daphne can make it through the night without tinkling in her overnight pull up (training underwear). She does a great job throughout the day using the potty all by herself. Occasionally requiring adult assistance for wiping (especially for her #2 activities), Daphne proudly wears big girl panties. What a relief that she is almost completely potty trained!

Until tomorrow,
Dave T.
