The Week in Pictures

Claire's 1st week has been a busy one, that's for sure!! Although, I'm fairly confident that she was completely oblivious to the majority of it... Ella is adjusting really well after a couple of rough days. She has been spiking some high fevers that are either from the horrible molars that are taking their time poking through, or from some mysterious viral infection. Either way, she has been in and out of misery and a new baby sister was not exactly her idea of therapy. My parents have been staying with us and quite frankly I'm not sure we would have survived this week without them! Both girls are waking at night and without their help with Ella, I'm afraid Eric, Ella, Claire and I would have suffered breakdowns by now! :) Despite the drama from a Big Sister who would rather not be... a re-admission to the hospital for a very orange Claire... a cold for Eric and Mommy's sore boobs... we are overwhelmingly happy to finally have our new baby girl!

Ummm.... she's touching me!

"Big" and "Little"

"Do I know you?"

Aunt Julie, Cousin Emma


Ella trying to bribe Grandma Cook with cuddles in hopes she won't notice the new baby in the room.

So tired.

Doing a little tanning.

Triple lights!

"Good Mommy. Let's leave her here!"

Happy to be home... wait... she never even noticed she left.

Claire is adorable.
Thanks for posting pics & for the health update on her.
Hope you are adjusting more each day to your "new" life.
Blessings to you, Eric & your precious angels.

I love all these new pics! Claire is soooooo cute! She was even cuter in technocolor...but I guess she needed the bili-lights. Darn. :) I am so glad she is out of the hospital and back home! Hopefully Ella will come around soon. Until then I'm REALLY enjoying all the funny faces she's making.

Love,
Grandma Pat
