Dedication Day

February 19, 2006

We had Claire dedicated at church on Sunday. She was 7 1/2 weeks old. It was such a fun and special day. In attendace were both sets of grandparents, both great grandmothers, two aunts an uncle and her cousin-to-be (Tish is pregnant). It was so neat to have everyone together for such a sweet occassion.

Three's Company

Sydney, Conner and Claire

Today we went walking with my friends Mindy and Dawn. Their babies, Sydney and Conner, are 9 days older and 1 day younger (respectively) than Claire. Conner and Claire actually met in the nursery at the hospital!! All of the kids were actually awake at the same time today so we had a great photo op! Mindy is a nurse that I work with in the PICU and Dawn is an ER fellow who did a rotation in the unit last fall. We all became good friends as we waddled around the hospital together!

What up C?

We went to Athens this past weekend and Claire met Patrick for the first time! Claire couldn't have cared less but Patrick obviously wasn't too excited. Kathryn and I look forward to embarassing them with this photo one day - maybe on Prom night? My high school friends has a shower for us - it was fun to catch up with everyone and have them meet Claire. She also met her Great Grandmother Adelaide for the first time. Gram and Pop almost didn't let her out the door to leave!

First Outings for Claire and Mom & Dad

When Claire was 4 weeks 5 days old (Jan. 30th) Rhett had the day off so we decided to take a field trip up to Huntsville to the Space and Rocket Center. We looked around the museum and watched an IMAX movie that Claire somehow slept through. Last week when Claire was 6 weeks old Rhett and I left her for the first time and went out on an actual date! You can see from the picture that Claire wasn't too happy about it. This picture was taken when we got back - she slept the whole time we were gone but let us have it when we got back!

I LOVE my bath!

Claire's newest hobby? Taking a bath! She LOVES it! The first time we put her in the tub she cried when we took her out! She just soaks and stares out the window. She likes to let her feet float out in front of her. Sometimes we give her two baths a day because she loves them and why not? When she's happy - we are happy! You also see in these photos that she is quite healthy (aka loves to eat)!

Almost 4 weeks

January 24, 2006

Claire will be 4 weeks old tomorrow! The time has gone so fast. It's amazing how much our lives have changed in such a short period of time. A month ago we didn't know Claire and now I can't imagine my life without her. She is an absolute joy and we are having so much fun. Every day is exciting because she is doing something new. Jo Anne was here last weekend to visit and Tish will be here this weekend. I'm feeling great - 100%. It's been such a mild month weather wise we have been going out for walks every day - I think that's helped me feel better quicker. It's been so great to be able to get out and get my batteries recharged with some sunshine. Hopefully the weather will continue to be this great.
