I've been trying to get some more video in acceptable formats for viewing online. Here's a little bit of what Lyla and I do sometimes when we're hanging out. Clearly, I could do it better.

Summer Days

Like every month, our August has been busy. We had a double header doctor's appointment for Lyla's 2 year and Quinn's 2 month appointments. Lyla measured in at 37" (97th percentile) and 32.6 lbs (90th percentile). We didn't get Quinn's percentiles, but he was 22 3/4" and 11 lbs 11 oz.

Lyla still loves her Quinny, though she will tell Erin that she wants daddy to hold Quinn and mommy to hold her or just "don't hold Quinn, hold me!" Usually, she's pretty good. She has told us not to talk about Quinn and to talk about her, though. I then start to talk about how smelly and gross she is. Just kidding! I never say she's gross.

Quinn is very happy and likes to laugh a lot. Sometimes he even does it in his sleep. As he is still a baby, there isn't much to tell about him. He eats, he sleeps, he laughs and smiles, he poops and then repeats the cycle.

Lyla, on the other hand, has been very busy becoming a big girl. She has given up her night time pacifier and is starting to use the potty regularly. She's very excited about getting her big girl undies, but isn't quite there yet. We've been lucky enough to have some pool time the last couple of weekends at Uncle Arthur's in the Hamptons and at Tammy Heftler's birthday/naming party. Lyla loves to play in the water.

That's all I can think of right now. I've got the August gallery up and will try to update it sometime this weekend with the end of the month.
