    Ian Week #13 Battle Report  Ian is now 13 weeks old and 14.4 pounds.     His night schedule is starting to get more regular, with a feed around 8 PM, one near 3 AM, and then another around 6 AM. Ian and I continue to have guy time from 8:30 - 11, where we play video games, rewatch  The Shield  or (recently) take an online course to pass the AWS Machine Learning Specialty exam.   He is excellent at tummy time and can hold his head up better than a brontosaurus with palsy. He can bat and grip things but gets bored of his surroundings pretty quickly. The one thing guaranteed to calm him down is the awful, tinny, monophonic "It's a Small World" rendition played by one of his jungle animals. We can repeat it up to 10 times ...

    Ian Week #12 Battle Report  Ian is 12 weeks old! This is like 3 months if there were a true metric system for the passing of time.     I look back at all the blog posts I made about Maia's weekly progress, down to the length in millimeters of her boogers, and am a little disappointed that I don't do the same for Ian. However, the effort it takes to keep two children alive is exponentially greater than the effort needed to keep one alive while writing about her like an 8th grade book report. I do try to make sure there is time to appreciate how awesome the kids are becoming, even if it is dwarfed by the time needed to keep them alive, work for pay, and live in a tidy house without fungally fragrant furniture.   At this time, ...

    Independence Day    Ian is 10 weeks old!     Maia (right, in patriotic dress) helps build a matchstick village to burn down, supplemented with old sparklers and gunpowder.     "The bunnies have four different fireworks. Each one explodes in the sky!"     Sir Dumps A Lot emits a 12-inch black snake then his butt explodes and sparks fly everywhere.

    End-of-the-Month Highlights Day  New photos have been added to the  Life, 2021  album.       Events   Maia started four weeks of summer camp at Trinity Church on T 6/1.    Drove my Dad around to doctor's appointments all day on W 6/2.    Rebecca and Maia went to the annual work picnic in Olney Park on F 6/4.    Tammy came over for dinner on T 6/8.    Had the Smiths over for a joint birthday party with melted ice cream cake on S 6/19.    Rebecca turned 38 on T 6/22.    Grandma Uri came over for a visit on F 6/25 - S 6/26.    Maia started Sports Camp at the Sportsplex on M 6/28.      &nbs...

    Ian Week #9 Battle Report    Ian has officially crossed the two month mark and received his first cocktail of vaccines. He's in the 60th percentile for weight and height, and the 97th percentile for head size, probably because everyone keeps telling him how cute and clean he is.   He weighed 12.8 pounds on Friday and 13.4 pounds on Sunday and has thrush (the fungus not the birds). He is more comfortable hanging out in the Enrichment Jungle and has figured out that swatting his hands will make things jingle.

    Ian Week #8 Battle Report    We've reached 8 weeks!   Between work, Maia, and Ian these days, time is a surging torrent of molasses that prevents me from itemizing every single change that Ian has undergone. I'm looking forward to the mythical day some time in the future where the two of them will play together while I play 500 games of Hearthstone in a row. Until then, it's sufficent to say that all is well -- Ian continues to grow and has not shrunk, and everyone is still alive.

    Ian Week #7 Battle Report    Ian has made it to 7 weeks and is somewhere over 12 pounds at the moment. Having his weekly milestone tied to a Sunday is very logistically convenient, because I can also remember to do other household chores based on multiples (deep clean the bathroom on week multiples of 4, wash the sheets on multiples of 3, etc.)   He is staying awake and alert much more now but still doesn't like being on his own for very long. He also has trouble with digestion and spends a lot of time grunting and whining about the air in his belly.   Just yesterday, he learned how to social smile!

    What's Maia Up To Day    Maia is a month away from turning 4. She still tells elaborate stories that convert her inner monologue into an outer one for hours as part of her falling asleep ritual. Here is an excerpt from Saturday night.    There's 8 hot dog packs and 6 bun packs. Or there was a... Mipha bought 4, Mipha bought 2 of...Mipha bought 4 buns. Mipha bought 4 buns. 2 for, 2...2 of 4 of buns...and 8 hot dogs and 8 buns. That's what they did. They got 2 of the same bun packs.      Mipha says, "Look! The bag has salmon that looks good." That was funny... Anna and Elsa said, "Look! Look! That's Frozen Fruit Snacks! Frozen, frozen fruit snacks." And Olaf said, "Also, the wind feels it. Because it also blow...

    Ian Week #6 Battle Report    Ian is six weeks old and exactly twelve pounds (he now outweighs the cat). He recently discovered how to swat hanging toys in the Enrichment Jungle and deigns to spend a few minutes lying there on his back without complaints. Otherwise, he strongly prefers being carried around by someone as he grunts his way through gas, poops, and life in general.

    Recent Events Day    I finally got around to ordering physical prints of our best online photos, which had been piling up since pre-pandemic. I used Amazon Photos which has a decent upload interface and is reasonably priced for small numbers of photos.    My company was  acquired  by Accenture Federal for some ridiculous price. No changes for me in the near-term although things always do change after something like this, regardless of how many times "business as usual" is chanted during the integration.    I got a new Purifier to Level 100 in Grim Dawn and it's so much fun that I'm having trouble getting the motivation to try other classes.    Ian is now 10.8 pounds.    Maia...

    End-of-the-Month Highlights Day  New photos have been added to the  Life, 2021  album.       Events   Ian met the Smiths on S 5/1.    Ian met the Whitmers on S 5/8.    Maia and Rebecca resumed their Sunday Farmer's Market outings on S 5/9.    The Smiths visited on S 5/15.    Maia went to Morgan's birthday party on S 5/16.    Went to my company's Advent of Code wrap party on T 5/25. Ian met Ghazaley.    Maia spent a weekend with the Uri grandparents S 5/29 - M 5/31.    Poker Night on S 5/29 (1st: Rebecca, then Chris, Taje, me, Larry, Kathy, and Mike in last place).    I went back to work on M 5/...

    Ian Week #4 Battle Report    Someone sent us this nice puzzle of Ian's name, but it came without a card so we have no idea who to thank.   This boy is now 9.8 pounds of Uri (roughly 3.3% of the net family weight). He is the loudest sleeper of all time, continuously grunting or vocalizing about some unseen TV show in his dreams.   Unlike Maia, Ian did not know how to smile at birth, but he has just recently started doing the "side smile" where only half of his mouth curves up.     Rebecca and I are still alive but would prefer a world where we can put the kids into cryostasis for 9 hours at a time to get an uninterrupted sleep cycle.

    Ian Week #3 Battle Report    It's nice that Ian's weekly milestone is on a Sunday because it makes it much easier to remember to take a picture of him hovering near these concussion-weighted photo blocks. At 3 weeks, Ian is a pound heavier than his birthweight and about the same length. The interpolated trend so far mirrors my own growth pattern from 11th grade through grad school.   Ian's biggest challenge is passing gas and solids (liquids are not a problem). If he's fussing, it's most likely because he's frustrated that his bodily wastes don't know where the exit is. When not gassy, he's probably sleeping.   Infant care this time around is pretty straightforward. When you have two kids, you must make sure the older one doesn...
