2 months!

I'm a little behind on Claire's 2 month update but here it is! Claire turned 2 months old last Wednesday and she has changed so much in the last few weeks! We had her 2 month appointment and shots yesterday. Claire is now 11 lbs 2 oz and 22 3/4 inches long. She falls in the 50% for weight and 60% in height. She now coos and smiles just because she wants to, it doesn't take so much work. Although I do miss the excitement of a smile after working so hard for one, it's wonderful to smile and get one back so easily. She will also let me put her on her belly for a few minutes at a time now, she is not a huge fan of tummy time but loves laying on her back.

We had some fun taking 2 month pictures with all 3 girls, I probably took over 50 and only 5 were actually usable so here they are!

This picture was taken last so her head lifting skills are better than this. I was excited to get a cow print diaper for my little baby calf, she eats enough to be a baby cow anyway! Maybe I should get a matching nursing cover, ha!

Sisterly love!

It was a challenge to get Claire's head up enough to see her face but here it is!

And another!

Saturday my uncle stopped by and always gives the girls a dollar for their piggy banks, Claire is already claiming hers! This picture cracks me up

Other updates:

Makayla and Hannah are still awesome sisters but the newness is wearing off and life is settling into a more natural routine. They will still talk to her and try to get her to smile but they are not over the top unless people are visiting and they are showing off.

Breastfeeding is still going great. We actually made it through church Sunday without having to nurse until we got back home, what an accomplishment! And we are still on track with cloth diapering. I am not sure how much I'll enjoy it in the winter since sunning will not be much of an option but we deal with that when we get there.

I am excited to watch her grow and change. Some days I just want her to stay this little and never get bigger, then she does something new and it is so exciting and I cannot wait to see more.
