2 weeks old

Yesterday, our baby girl turned 2 weeks old. I already can't believe how fast it's going. We went to the dr. for her 2 week check up on Weds, and she's up to 8 lbs, and 12 oz. They said she'd grown to 22 inches, but I don't know how she could've possibly grown 2 inches in 2 weeks. It's not the most accurate measurement process, so I'm guessing that someone was just off. Her head is in the 50%, unlike Grant's, whose has always been and is still in the 95-100%. Thank goodness she's the one that I had without drugs!

Yesterday, we had a photographer come to our house and take newborn shots of Claire. It was quite an experience. Since she was naked in all of the shots, she was not happy to start off with. We were trying to get her to go to sleep, which usually during the day isn't hard at all. Yesterday, she decided she'd like to stay awake all morning, so she was really bright eyed alot of the time. The other great part about her being naked... she let loose all over me, all over the photographer's bean bag, all over the floor, on her quilt, and anywhere else that you can imagine...she messed on it. I don't know how her little body had so much in it. It was a mess and hilarious! I'll post the link to the pics when they're available. For now, the photographer has posted one of she and I on her blog. You can see it at

Here are a few other pictures from the last little bit:

She was really happy about this
