Twin Picks of the Month: Dave's Required Bankruptcy Reading for June 2007

Ahh, the joy of twin boys!  A great blessing no matter how you slice it.  The first, David Charles, was born at 3:55 p.m. on October 1, and weighed a healthy 6 lbs. 14 oz.  The picture you see of him was about 2 weeks ago, and was about the only time I could catch him not crying.  Since then, the miracle of Baby Zantac has snuffed the curse my mother must have put on me for my three months of non-stop crying as a colicky baby.

Needless to say, life's priorities have changed for me a bit since the twins' birth, and blogging was an early victim of my sleep-deprived days.  But with Baby Zantac not only having controlled Davey's colic, but also having given me a near full night's rest, it's time to catch up on my "Picks of the Month" series of posts, these being for June 2007, and dedicated to my newborn son, Dave.  Thanks to everyone for their good wishes this past month!

Update - 10/31/07:   My wife read the post, and wanted me to know that Davey's colic is neither "cured" nor "controlled."  Guess I'm leaving early tonight.
