It's Been A While...

It's been a while since I've documented our little lives here, but it's mostly because we've been so busy living it! 

 Claire was 13lbs 12oz at her 6 month appt! She's a bitty baby just like her brother was! We started solid foods with her and she's proving to be a pretty good eater. Bananas seem to make her spit up more than other foods, so we're avoiding those for a while. 

She loves to go on walks facing forward just like Coop. 

Jen and her three littles came for about 5 days back in February and we had the best time! 

The boys were busy up on Papa's baseball field, playing in the backyard, making valentine crafts and throwing Grammy a surprise birthday party. 

 This girl is very happy unless her teeth are giving her fits. She's always busy chewing on whatever's in front of her in order to give her some relief. 

 First food. Those cheeks. 

The last weekend in February was a snowy one! Coop loved making snow angels with Grammy. 

 I turned 29! 

Ryan took me to tea to celebrate the big 2-9 and it was delightful! 

 This wonderful boy turned 3. How can it be? I'll work on writing a whole post on what he's up to these days, but for now, a picture of his sweet smile and slimy backyard treasures. 

For his bday we took him to eat donuts and then to Gravity Park where he had way too much fun jumping and climbing with Daddy. 

Balance bike-rider! 

 We hosted our whole family to celebrate Easter and God blessed us with the most beautiful day! It was bittersweet since it will be the last holiday we have at our little house. We're moving in the middle of May down the road a few miles to a beautiful home with more room for our growing family. No, I'm not pregnant. But the kids are growing. Get it? Good. :) We're so blessed to be able for the new home. More on that later. Maybe. ;)

And lastly, there's these two. Coop and Claire just adore each other. And we adore them.

Claire-5 Months

I realize I'm only blogging her monthly pic these days, but I hardly find time for much more. Here's a glimpse at our girl at 5 months old. 

 Stealing kisses and snuggles from Daddy. 

 Jumping (okay, mostly just sitting) in her jumper. 

 Afternoon chats with big brother. 

 Our sweetie contracted Cooper's croup (almost a month later) and was a sick sick girl. Although it was super sad to have a sick baby, the extra snuggles were the best. 

We've also found Claire's new hang out while Cooper plays in the yard! 

Since we had to take her to the pediatrician for croup, we know she weighs 13 lbs, 8 oz. And while she was sleeping 11ish hours at night, she's back to waking up once or twice cause of her cough and/or boogers. We'll get back there soon enough. :) She is such a joy to all of our lives!

Claire-4 months

Claire is 4 months old! 

She weighs 13.2 lbs, and is 24 inches long! 
She's wearing size 2 diapers and 3-6 month clothes. She's eating and sleeping like a champ, and is rolling all over the place. :) She's our happy little Claire Bear, who babbles and coos to us and is such a blessing to our family. 

We love you, muffin!

 Uncle Trav and Ryan enjoying the spirit(s).

I brought down all of our Christmas books and let Cooper open two each day to keep out and read. 

 Coop's Little People Nativity got plenty of action.

 So festive!

Claire-3 Months

Our Claire Bear is 3 months old and sweet as pie. :) 

She's in 3-6 month clothes and Size 1 Diapers. 
She smiles and coos and sleeps through the night...What more can a momma ask for?! 

 Her big brother reading to her about dinosaurs. 

 Daddy's girl. :) 

 Sweet muffin. 

Auntie Mill came to town last weekend and loved on our littles. It was delightful, as always! 

We love our Claire to pieces and can't imagine our lives without her!

Claire- Two Months (and some)

Warning: Claire's two month post is also a bit of a smorgesbord of Gilmore happenings!

Our girl is two (and a half) months old! She weighs 11lbs 8oz and is 21.75 inches long! 

She's still eating every 3 hours during the day and is either up once at night or not at all-last night she slept 9 hours! Go Claire! 

All dressed up for church! 

Last Saturday my sweet friends threw a little Sip N See for Claire. It was nice to get together for tea! 

 Claire's bling...My mom found this baby ring in her grandmother's stuff-so sweet! 

 Isn't that the prettiest diaper cake you've seen? 

 Claire visiting with the girls! 

Besties for the restie. 

 Our pretty mommas!

 Remember when I posted about my childhood best friend Laura who was diagnosed with leukemia almost a year ago? Well, I'm happy to report she's done with her treatment and is doing well! We walked last Sunday night in her honor and the Light the Night event was wonderful! 

 The Dukes are comin' out! Comin out swinging! 

 We went to the cabin last weekend...It was delightful!

Check out how proud of this blow-out she is!

 Think they're related? 

Last, but not least on this very random post is pictures of Claire's nursery. My mom made all of her bedding, and it turned out totally adorable. 

 This canvas from Hobby Lobby went perfectly with a 'C is for Claire' print I got from etsy and a newborn pic. 

 Above her crib is a cross-stitch my grandmother made ages ago and a mobile I slaved over while I was pregnant with her. :) 

Okay, I think we're all caught up! ;)
