Daddy's Girl!

Okay, just had to share a photo of wide-eyed Grace as she cuddles with her Daddy.

Spreadsheet man strikes again...

Fasten your pocket protectors, ladies and gents. It's the return of suave, debonair spreadsheet man! Surely you are thinking -- with wonder and delight -- "What's he plotting today?" Well, it's a growth chart of the kiddos.

Each of the weights is from a baby scale at a doctors office, except the big dots, which are measured at home. For purposes of full disclosure (and to ratchet up the dork factor by about 300%), the home measurements are +/- 0.5 lbs since that's the sensitivity of our scale. The weights don't surprise us too much, as Dylan looks a bit bigger and Grace is a little more petite.

Happy little man

Dylan is starting to smile a lot more now. He is also getting SO much bigger and stronger. He weighs somewhere between 11.5-12 lbs now. One activity that always seems to elicit his amusement is slowly tugging on his hands and making a "chugga-chugga-chugga-chugga-CHOO CHOO!" noise like a train. Here's one of daddy's favorite pictures from this week.

Hey -- this is fun!

Least favorite word? "Outofcookies"

A temporary diversion from the normal posts -- I used to love this guy as a kid, and am sure Grace and Dylan will get their fair share as well. Check out this interview with the monster.

To-ga ! To-ga!

Upon strolling into the nursery to feed Grace this morning, I was quite surprised to see how sophisticated the fashion statements have become. Sometime between 2 and 8am she rearranged her swaddle into a toga configuration. Given that a swaddle is designed more for comfort than for style, she definitely gets an A+ for resourcefulness. The majesty of the pose and the outfit sent dad scurrying downstairs to grab the camera before the moment was lost.

Hat trick

A few weeks ago, our bundles of joy were completely engulfed by all the hats in their collection. However, they are now starting to grow into them, and the hats are now emerging out of the drawer. Here are a few pictures from the weekend with some noggin' accessories.

Shot more times than a rapper!

Lots of shots today. Vaccines hurt.

Grace: "Whaaa!" followed by teary eyes.

Dylan: "WHAAA!!" followed by an angry scowl.


Time for naps.
