Week 3 and still going!

Ok, so I'm afraid this post must be short and sweet, but I will share some pictures of Claire over the last couple weeks.  Hopefully I will be able to write/post more later, but I just read my friend's, Stef, blog and she just HAD to point to a pretty convicting blog post regarding time in the Word.  I have really gotten out of the habit with the onset of the new schedule, so now that baby is sleeping - I need to take advantage of the time so graciously given to me.

I must say though, that today is Brian and my THIRD anniversary!!!  We are both not getting each other anything and I'm more than okay with that.  I just love him so much and I can't imagine my life without him.  We have had the best life together so far.  We've been on a cruise, vacationed with family, bought a townhome and been through renovations...I'm just so excited about the coming years and what they will bring.  I can't even express in type, in words...nothing seems sufficient in describing how I feel about him.  He's a really good father, you can just tell how much he loves our little girl by watching him.  It's so precious. (sometimes I might even be a little jealous of all the attention baby receives!! lol)

I will say that I don't think I could have made it though the first week with Claire without Grandma Barb!  She cooked, cleaned, washed, and the list goes on and on.  She helped us get on a schedule and provided an extra set of hands while Brian and I attempted to get caught up on our sleep.  I just can't imagine what would have happened without her...I'd probably have gone running back to the hospital!!

Anyway, below you will find some highlights of the past couple weeks...more to come...

 Not our favorite moment - we gave her a sponge bath - during which she screamed bloodymurder through the whole thing!
 What a funny face!  She is fully of goofy expressions - I'm compiling pictures of them all - hopefully I can share them soon.
 Uncle Dave and Aunt Gail came to visit!  It was so much fun!  Katie and Nate got to meet their little cousin in person.  They tried their very best to be calm around the baby!  Good job! While I'm thinking about it - Grandma Barb and Grandpa Les came too!  We were SO wrapped up in planning a schedule and the 1st week of Claire being home that we didn't take many..(any) pictures!  Doh!  Next time we will need to double up on them!
 Katie's birthday happened to be when they were in town (and Nate had already had his birthday) so we took them both to Build-a-Bear!  It was SO much fun watching them!!!
 Claire picked out a bear too, but we decided to hold off on purchasing it until she could actually stay away during the build-a-bear visit.
 YAY!  Brian agreed to do 1 picture during our first outing together with Claire!
 After the mall we came home for a bit and the kiddos went swimming - then we all walked to the park!  Claire took a nap.
 We've had quite a few visitors!  Andy and Becca not only visited, but brought us food!  They can come over anytime!!!

 Jake came over for a play date - and there's a little controversy regarding some Newborn size BOY's sweatpants stashed under the couch...Dad is investigating, but Jake IS the only newborn boy that came to our house....just saying...and he WAS really interested in Claire...I can't help but notice he is pants-less in this picture... As usual Claire slept through the curious visitor. LOL
 Grandma Linda and Grandpa Don came and visited this past weekend.  We stayed around the house and spent time together.  They were so great!  We got the best good food!!  All my laundry is caught up as well!
 Here's grandma changing one of baby's MANY poops!
Yep - she even had grandpa holding her while sleeping - this little girl was so warm and well taken care of when grandma and grandpa visited!  Hope they come back soon!
