Here is a perfectly good reason why I don't like when Shaun is gone at work for 48 hours. Having to fly two boys, that together equal 55 lbs, up the stairs every night for bath and bed is VERY hard! Shaun's arms are so much better at this than mine!
The boys had doctor's appointments yesterday and we have new measurements to report.
Isaac Timothy: 34 lbs and 37 1/2 in. tall (I guess he shrunk 'cause last time he was 38 in. tall)
Parker James: 21 lbs and 27 1/2 in. tall (he's gained about 3 lbs and 2 in. in two months) Parker's head was also a small (very small) concern to the doctor. It's 47 cm which is the 99 percentile. We just have to make sure it stays proportioned to the rest of his body. If it grows significantly in the next two months then they have to check and see if there is any extra fluid. The doctor told me not to worry (which is exactly what I'm doing)!
More firsts! Parker is now sitting up on his own and tasting things other than mommy's milk. You can see that he enjoys one of these accomplishments more than the other! Extra info: Isaac and Parker were, to the day, the exact same age when they started sitting up. Pretty cool!
Playing monkey games with big brother! Oh how Parker wanted to put them all in his little mouth!
Isaac's coordination blows us away. He is so athletic and his fine motor skills are so developed. Tonight Shaun had a fire department baseball game so we brought along Isaac's gear. He must have hit five hundred times and only one time did he miss. His form and concentration are priceless!
