Earlier this month Sandi mentioned that we had purchased some great shoes from Preschoolians. She mentioned that they seemed to have great customer service. The shoes arrived today. Well, actually, only one pair of shoes arrived. There was some sort of mixup with our buy-one-get-one-free “twins” discount. Sandi got pretty upset because she was really [...]
It was the strangest thing. She went from 102.2° to 103.9°, as noted in the previous entry. She continued to be hot until probably 2:30 PM or so when she miraculously went down to 98°! She played around with Kimberly for the rest of the afternoon while we continued to administer doses of Tylenol and [...]
I took a half day today because Annie was crying a lot and Sandi needed to take exclusive care of her. Turned out that she had a 102.2° fever when I got home at 11 AM and it jumped up to 103.9° by noon. Naturally, Sandi took Annie to the doctor because she wasn’t getting [...]
I’m working from home today and I’m glad I did because I got to see Annie stand up by herself. She was flailing her arms about trying to keep from falling but she stayed up for a pretty long time. This beats her previous record of a few seconds after she let go of the [...]
Today we ordered the girls their first official pair of shoes. The girls are so mobile and are on the verge of learning how to walk. Annie and Kimberly have the same size foot amazingly enough! The shoes should arrive this week sometime. I will post a pic as soon as we get them. The [...]
Kimberly turned 9 months old today. This is quite bittersweet. She is in such a rush to grow up. She will probably be walking before her first birthday. I love to see her grow and learn new things but, don’t want to loose my baby. I guess I still have Annie. 12 days until she [...]
Annie has lately been attempting to split her scalp or crack her skull—I can’t decide which. In the last two weeks, she has done the following: Stood up in the bath tub trying to get a shampoo bottle and fell on her forehead Dove out of a shopping cart on to the Albertson’s floor Climbed [...]
Kimberly has finally gotten enough hair for Sandi to fashion a ponytail and I think it looks marvelous. In other Kimberly news, she’s become quite a little speed demon in her walker. I came home late tonight to see her doing laps around the downstairs, exercising amazing control. She can execute three-point turns, back up [...]
Celebrities and Their Kids Names: you know about Gwyneth’s new baby Apple, but there’s so many more bizarre names celebrities have chosen for their kids. Memphis Eve and Elijah Bob Patricius Guggi Q, spawn of Bono Blue Angel, child of Dave “The Edge” Evan Speck Wildhorse, progeny of John Mellencamp—you could have broken the cycle, [...]
** Public service announcement from the Bill Brown Information Center ** We have heard the commercial on the radio from the print catalog that is looking for infant models to grace its pages. We are also aware that both of our girls are very cute and would probably stand a good chance of making it [...]
Ugh, last night was pretty rough. The Girls kept getting up so the best way to describe my sleep was disrupted. The good news is that we discovered that Kimberly has learned how to find and enjoy her own pacifier while sleeping. Normally, she would stir, try sucking, and start crying until we came in [...]
Interesting lowdown on celebrities, their kids, and the invisible nannies that allow the celebrities to parent without all the effort us normal people have to go through. Page 2 has details about celebrities’ proclivity to bizarre names. Page 3 tells why celebrities don’t deliver naturally.
We got a call from our adoption agency last week inquiring whether we’d be interested in an adoption opportunity. We were until we found out the specifics. It’s a very sad tale. The children were a set of three-month-old triplets. We could basically go pick them up since the parental rights were completely terminated. How [...]
Two days ago, they got up to the second step. Yesterday, the third. Man, we’ve got to get babyproofing soon!
