So far, having two has been... interesting. Evan is sweet as pie to Delaney; it's actually a joy to behold. He talks to her in a soft whispery voice, always wants to rub her head and look at her, and is generally very interested in what she's doing. It's how he's relating to us that's been a little difficult. For the past few months, he's been mercurial like most kids his age, but now he goes from happy to shrieking with little provocation. His tantrums are longer and louder - and much more frequent. I know it's just a phase, but I am simultaneously REALLY annoyed and yet sympathetic. I feel badly for him. All of a sudden his world has been turned upside down and I think he's just trying to be sure where he fits in.

But look at the two of them... tantrums or no, I feel like the luckiest person in the world.

OK, so I'm a little behind here... but we have a new baby girl!! Delaney Lea was born on February 6 at 3:19 a.m. after a lightning-fast labor (only 3 hours total between first contraction and delivery - score!). She was 7 lbs., 10 oz. and 20 inches long.
We are absolutely in love. She is totally adorable, nurses like a champ, and smiles in her sleep so much that we almost forget how little we are sleeping. (almost.)
