She still loves to eat but we have gotten on a much more regular schedule. Last month, some days she could go 3 hours and sometimes it seemed like an hour and a half between feedings. I think she's weighing in at about 14 1/2 pounds. I have no idea how long she is, but I do know that she's outgrowing all of her 0-3 month clothes. They are all getting too short. We're ready for warm weather because all of the 3-6 month stuff I have is very summery.
Claire is very attached to her mommy. I have been trying to take her to the nursery at church now and she gives me this pitiful face and sticks her lip out and starts screaming as soon as I hand her off. She doesn't do this anywhere but church or when I hand her to her daddy! I had no idea separation anxiety could start this early. I'll be glad when this phase passes. It's exhausting. She has stayed with her babysitter, nanny, several times and has done great. I go back to work on the 17th, so I hope that it continues when she's there with her brother and for more than an hour or so.
We've been on the go alot these last few weeks, and Claire wants none of it. She seems more content to be at home. She HATES her car seat. She does sleep in it, but if she's not sleeping, she's screaming. There doesn't seem to be a happy content state in it yet. Good thing that we don't have any long trips planned any time soon. I don't think I could deal with it. Her cry is just so pitiful.
This girl loves her big brother. Her eyes follow him every where he goes and she just grins at him. He's not even talking to her most of the time, but she smiles so big at everything he says. I know she'll be following him around very soon! Grant is doing a little better with her, but every day is still a struggle. I'm not so sure if it's just that he's almost 3 and the age is just tough, or if it's the sibling jealousy thing. Several people have said that from 3 to 4 is the hardest year. If these last few months have been any indication, it will be a very difficult year!
I took him to his first movie last Friday. We went to see Horton Hears a Who! He loved it and has already asked me when we're going back. He was very confused that other people were going to see his movie with him. Every time someone would laugh, he would yell at them, "Hey, what are you laughing at?" Then he told me that they were laughing at me. It was really fun hanging out with just him.
This Saturday, we're planning to do some fun things with him, so we should have some good pics of the weekend. He's also been very busy trying to figure out what kind of birthday party he wants to have. It changes every day. We have the place picked out, but the theme keeps changing. We're having it at the putt putt place. I'm not sure how well a bunch of 3 year olds and putt putt mix, but that's what he wants. At least there will be an inside room for cakes, etc. It has been SOOOO hot the last 2 years at his party.
Grant has also learned how to use the computer recently. Pookie showed him how to use the mouse and he's had fun playing games on Sesame Street's website. I never imagined him doing that at this age, but I guess they do everything earlier these days, at least that's how it seems.
Sorry for such a long post. I can't seem to find time lately to do much blogging!
