2 Months Old!

I can't believe that it has been 2 months since William was born! I think that he's finally getting his schedule on track. He takes 2 long naps during the day and generally sleeps from 10:00 pm to 3:30 am... which works for me! He is so cute!!! He smiles and giggles and reacts to us when we talk to him. Shayna is really happy that William acknowledges her now. She calls herself, "Sissy," which is so cute! I know she is and will be a great big Sissy!

Oh, by the way, the Tooth Fairy brought Shayna $5 and a congratulatory note (which was taped to her headboard). I asked Shayna what she was going to buy with her $5 and she told me, "5.......5 dollar footlong from Subway." OK - too much TV in this household!!!

Shayna Loses Her First Tooth!

Shayna lost her first tooth today while looking for lizards in our front yard. She told me that it just came out by itself and popped right into her hand! I'm so happy that it just fell out on its own! YAY! I bet the Tooth Fairy pays a lot of money for that first tooth!

Kindergarten Sign-Ups!

Shayna is officially signed up for Kindergarten at our neighborhood elementary school. Last week when I picked up the "Kindergarten Packet" for our school, I noticed that we were deficient in some immunization areas... for instance, Shayna needed her 2nd MMR shot, blood tests, urine tests, and a TB Test. Who knew that the Long Beach Unified School District cared so much about my kid's health... They even require them to see a dentist! I made an appointment at her doctor's office and took her in. I told her that she'd be getting these shots and not to worry because after we would leave the doctor's office we would make our way to the Dollar Store for a $5 shopping spree. After she rec'd her TB Test and MMR shot, I was informed by the nurse that we had to go elsewhere for the blood and urine tests. GRRRRREAT (with a facetious tone)! We got back into the van and headed over to the lab, which just so happened to be right across the street from the Dollar Store. I did not tell Shayna about the blood test... only the urine test. She actually made up a song about peeing in a cup on the way to the lab. So cute (again, with a facetious tone)!! After peeing in a cup, the lab lady in the white coat escorted the 3 of us to Room B... the needle room. When Shayna realized that they were going to take blood from her... WITH A NEEDLE... she freaked out and started crying. I'm not talking about the whimpering kind, I'm talking SCREAMING! As soon as this started, William, who was fast asleep without a care in the world, began to stir and... well... began his version of SCREAMING... then my phone rang.... then my boobs started leaking through my shirt because I heard William crying... I took William out of his stroller because his little face was turning purple and began to nurse him, right there in Room B! I didn't care if my boob was hanging out, because it meant one less screaming kid. There was no way I was going to answer my phone, either, although in hindsight, I should've, because it was Mark - I actually should've just opened my phone to let him hear what was going on... that'll teach him to call me at the wrong time! Haha! Needless to say, with one kid on the boob and the other on my lap, the nurse got the blood out of Shayna's poor little arm and I learned a very valuable lesson on how to juggle while riding a unicycle without falling down!!!
