Well, hello there!  Two months has FLOWN by!  We thought time went fast with E, but holy cow, life with two goes even faster.  Claire is growing quite rapidly, weighing in at 11 pounds 14 ounces.  She pretty much eats all day long, hating to be set down for even a second.  She hasn’t really figured out the beauty of a good nap.  BUT, she sleeps at night, so that’s a win!  She goes down about 9 p.m. and wakes up to eat between 5 and 6 a.m.  Now that I am back to work, I will get the girls ready then, but it was beautiful a few weeks ago when she would go right back to sleep until about 9 a.m., but then the day of no naps would begin.  So, we are hoping she starts a good nap schedule soon–our sitter is great at getting kids on a schedule.  Pretty much the best actually.
Claire loves to be bounced and if you do dare to sit her down, it better be in the Rock n Play with the vibration on.  She will also tolerate being set down in her warm bath.  She also likes when you make the sushing sound really loud while you bounce her.  She is just entering the smile/coo response stage which is seriously just the best.  Especially when the smile/coo is in response to something Eleanor is doing.  Speaking of Eleanor, phew, she loves this baby something fierce.  The only time Eleanor has ever cried when we do daycare drop off is when we left Claire there for her trial day and E and I left to go to Target (It’s a ritual–but with E I had to do it by myself and it was the WORST.  Glad I had a partner to cry into my chocolate croissant with this time!).

Also, the crying as soon as you set her down is making these little monthly update pictures REALLY difficult.  So I hope you like to see only one semi-happy picture and the rest crying.  Although, E pretty much hated these things too.

And if you’re into comparisons–here is E at two months!

We love you, Claire!

Hope you all had a great week!
