Happy weekend

Claire is happy and ready to start the fun!

All dressed up and no place to go

Claire doesn't have a pool to go play in, but that doesn't mean she can't hang out in her adorable swimsuit and hat from nana and pop.

Claire Live

My love

 Claire was definitely worth the wait.  She is such a fun and happy baby who loves to play and hang out with her mommy and daddy. 
When daddy is at work I've started putting him on speaker phone.   She gets so excited to hear his voice and then gets mad because she can't find him.

Claire rides in style!

 Now that Claire is a big girl (well over 9lbs, that's big for her).  We decided to try out the jogging stroller.  She seemed to really enjoy being able to look forward and see her surroundings.  Claire has loved walks since the beginning.  I walked 3 miles everyday when I was pregnant and have done the same since she came home in April.  It's become A LOT harder lately though with this heat wave.  We can't wait for cooler temperatures to try running with this stroller!


We love it when we take Jack out to go potty and find packages at the front door. 
 Claire thought the bow on the package was the present.
 But she was even more excited when she unwrapped the package and found a whole box of cute socks in all different colors!
Thanks to our favorite Vermont relatives!!!

Big like daddy

Claire has been spitting up lately so we headed to the doctor's office yesterday for a check up.  We found out that our little bear isn't so little anymore.  She now weighs 9lbs 2oz, which is what her daddy weighed at birth.  The doctor thinks the spitting up is from her reflux, so we are upping the dose of her meds and that seems to be helping.  As you can see, the spitting up hasn't upset Claire in the least.

Pretty in purple

 Almost there. . . Claire is almost big enough to ride in her jogging stroller.  Of course we need to get rid of these ridiculously hot temperatures before we can even think about enjoying the outside again. 

Playtime with daddy

  I still can't pick up toys, but I can hold them.
  Yawn, playing makes me VERY tired!

New Bow

Claire has been such a good girl this week that I decided she needed a present.  What does every little bald baby girl want. . . a new hair bow ( and mommy was very excited because it was 40% off)!
 She was very scared that Jack was going to steal her new bow :(

 On a side note :  Look how chunky her legs are, my baby is getting big.  She is now wearing size 1 diapers and 0-3 month clothes, where is my tiny baby going?!?

A hair bow has to be versatile, and match many outfits, 

and look pretty with your eyes!

Happy to help mommy!

 I love how excited Claire gets about some of the most mundane task.  She was so excited to help with laundry this morning and mopping and vacuuming tonight.  Claire's favorite though is watching mommy get beautiful.  She stares at me very intently when I blow dry my hair and put makeup on.  She can be crying and when I sit on the floor with her and show her what I'm doing, her whole face lights up!

Claire's favorite

It doesn't matter what direction you face Claire in her bouncey she turns to see her yellow sunshine. 

Even cute babies get sad sometimes

 Don't mess with me mommy!
 You messed with me, wahhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Morning

Claire is in a good mood this morning after a long morning nap.  Her mommy is VERY tired as Claire decided sleeping wasn't on the agenda last night. 

 We hope you have a great Sunday, Claire is excited she has her first playdate this afternoon!
