Darby and her Parrot

Yes.  Darby has a parrot!  Her parrots name is “Parrot” and (s)he (not sure which it is, I’ll have to ask later) – flies into the room at random times.  Parrot is at the dinner table, A LOT.  We always know when Parrot is around because Darby says “flap flap” when it’s flying into the room – and Parrot always lands right on her arm or fingers.  Did I mention that Parrot repeats EVERYTHING we say?  Well, (s)he does!  Here is a video I took the other night with my iPhone.  It’s dark and hard to see, but cute none the less. 

With out further or do, here is Darby and her smart Parrot!

Two Months Old!

I can not believe Finn is already 2 months old!

At his two month check up (which was also a sick visit for poor Darby), Finn weighed in at 12lbs 10oz and is now 23 inches long – the 75th percentile! He is already wearing 3m and 3-6m sized clothes and just about in size 2 diapers!  He’s our little chubalicious!! I’m so hesitant to admit it  but he is (crossing fingers) growing out of his colic!!  I love it when he is happy, and since there is finally more of the day that he is happy then upset, I couldn’t ask for more!

He has been coo-ing and smiling for a few weeks now, and to us there isn’t much that is cuter! Here is a video I took last week.  We bought him a new high chair since Darby’s (which is wood) doubles as her chair at the table and is just well, very loved and has been well used!  He deserved something new, and we wanted him to be able to sit at the table with us when we eat dinner now.  We got a Chicco high chair that reclines so he can sit with us starting now! He loves his new high chair.  Here he is telling you about it while sitting in it:

Here is the updated slide show! I still need to find a ‘one day old’ picture to add, but here’s what we have so far!

For Comparison

People always ask if I think Darby and Finn look-alike.  The answer is YES! While I think Darby definitely looked like a baby girl and Finn looks most definitely like a baby boy, I think they do look a LOT alike.

Darby at 2 Months:

Finn at (almost) 2 months:

Finn is definitely chunkier then I remember D being at this point, but he’s a boy!! I think I need to recreate a picture of Darby with Finn so we can really get a good comparison going on.  Maybe in my free time? 🙂 Ha!

What do you think?

Story Time with Big Sissy

Wow, my posts are few and far between these days!  But I’m sure you all understand that life with 2 kids is twice as crazy and leaves me barely any time to do things I want to do!  Miraculously (and knock on wood) BOTH kiddos are napping right now so I thought I’d pop on as quickly as I can and post while the getting is good!

Like I said, life has been crazy, but we are surviving!  Finn is getting SO big, almost 2 months old already!  Little miss Darby Doo is growing like a weed too!  I had to take her to the Dr last week (double ear infections, boo!) and she weighed 32lbs – I can NOT believe I have a 2 1/2 year old! Yikes!  Not to mention that she will be in Preschool in September. Where has the time gone? Geeze!

Here’s a video from when Finn was just 1 week old. My how the time flew! Darby still reads to Finn all the time, and (fingers crossed) since Finn is getting  less colicky (Hurray!!) the interaction is just totally adorable.  He is coo-ing and smiling up a storm and Darby just loves talking to him.

I am really hoping Finn shares in Darby’s love of books!  It is by FAR her favorite pastime – followed by coloring and dressing up in her costumes! She is even starting to memorize some of her books – like Pinkalicious – that she is reading to Finn in the video. She knows the first few pages by heart and it is adorable!
