Pictures and an update

Here are some snapshots from the past couple of weeks...


Daddy and Anna Claire taking a nap

Anna Claire's Granny made this dress. There is a hat that goes with it, but I couldn't get her to keep it on long enough to take the picture.

Sitting in her Bumbo for the first time!

Anna Claire and her cousin Sam while we were in Ohio. A certain little girl really took to her older cousins and couldn't get enough of them.

She found her hands!

We went for Anna Claire's 4 month check-up last week and she weighs in a whopping 11lbs. 3 oz. and measures almost 23 inches long! The doctor turned to me and said, "She's finally on the charts!" Even though she is in the 6th percentile, she is gaining on the charts and making a straight upward climb instead of the gradual curve. The doctor was so proud of her and so are we! She is finally fitting into her 3 month clothes; the length is perfect but her little body doesn't fill them out just yet.

Mike is working on a project that I can't wait to show you! He got a router and hasn't been able to stop talking about it (or using it!) for the past few weeks. I told him he is going to turn into Norm Abram from This Old House!

Yay Anna Claire! She looks amazing and it turning into such a big girl. I know you are excited to see her growing and healthy!

Good for Anna Claire! My youngest, Kelsie, was the same way..she still is smaller then girls her age at 3 1/2. The only thing that is a positive to being smaller....She won't grow up as fast....She will still have those little features of a younger one!

Oh, I can't wait to see what he's been working on!

Way to go, Anna Claire! My daughter was the same exact way -- she was barely on the charts.

I love the Daddy/Daughter picture! There is nothing sweeter than a Daddy with his daughter!

At my newest little grandson's 2 month check-up, he weighed 13 pounds! He is quite the chunk compared to Anna CLaire. She is an absolute doll.

She is doing great! I am so glad to hear she is growing so well; it can be a little extra worrisome with babies born early! Our son wasn't on the charts for so long, and we celebrated every single ounce! :)

I hope you are having a wonderful summer so far! :) Have a great day!

I stumbled across your blog while doing a search for Pleasant View, and have fallen in love with your precious daughter! I, too am a proud citizen of Pleasant View, and write about the town frequently. I will be visiting your site often to watch this little darling grow!
