to the nurses at the hospital giving me grief because little man lost 10% of his weight overnight: psh. we keep joking about the cow that i am, because caleb well surpassed his birth weight at his two week appointment today. and grew 2 inches. boo ya. he is filling out nicely. still a total dream boat- he sleeps through the night pretty much, and just eats every four hours at night and goes right back to dream land. LOVE him fully and completely.
i'm sure you are sick of hearing about how much i love my doctor, but really, when the man walks in and says "i love when i get to see you guys!" with a huge smile on his face, i can't help but gush. he's just that fantastic.
anyways, baby is a dream, and claire at this point, um, is not. she has hit full on tantrums, and when she is upset she pulls her hair out. she was so upset in the car while we were in traffic that she now has a small spot of missing hair on her head, and scratches all over her face. what to do, what to do. explaining that she will hate her pictures of this age years from now does not do much at this point :) she is usually pretty well behaved though- she is as active as ever, makes friends with everyone, and is learning how to restrain from giving baby too much love. i love watching her face light up when she thinks she is really interacting with caleb, and while her interest in him is turned on and off like a light switch, seeing them together makes my heart swell, makes me sing with joy inside. at the end of the day, claire is still my sweet baby, and i love just watching her grow and learn. these two are gonna be best buds.
i need to mention how blessed we've been these last 2 1/2 weeks to have my mom around. while my recovery has been a breeze (at least compared to last time), its been wonderful to have someone pull dinner together, watch claire and caleb for a bit so i can take a nap or so that joe and i can attend the temple, and to keep us entertained in general. it was pretty clear that she was being pulled in several directions, especially being pulled by things at home, but she has stayed here and helped out so, so much with everything, and we are so grateful! thanks momma!
that's us for the moment. now that i think about it, that plastic wrap thing was kinda metaphorical for us: its a whole new chapter of our lives now- having kids and not just an infant. so weird. cheesy, yeah. whatever- i crack myself up.
