More Chloe!

Chloe has been changing so much lately. It is very easy to get her to smile and laugh now. I love making her laugh. It makes my heart happy.

Kristen took a picture of her in her crib again. She is getting so much bigger. The first time we did that she was just a tiny little thing. Now she looks somewhat normal in the crib. However, Kristen decided it would be fun to put her in the laundry basket. She said that she didn't have an extra hand to get the laundry and Chloe upstairs. I think she just wanted to take pictures. I would have!

We hung up Chloe's bouncy chair. She doesn't quite know what to think yet. We don't want her in it too much because we don't want her head to flop around...but she is doing great holding it up. Probably 90% of the time she holds it still. The only time she wobbles is when she is tired.

She is starting to push up and support her own weight with her feet too. She likes to stand up and dance. (I say dance because she isn't strong enough to stay steady yet).

Chloe is also blowing bubbles all the time now! It's getting hard to keep her outfits drool-free.

That's about it for now. Sorry about not having a lot of posts lately. I wish I could do more. With school and work it seems like I barely have any time to see my girls.

Good Weekend

Kristen and I had a good weekend with Chloe. Friday night we had a date for Kristen's birthday. Her friend watched Chloe for us. That night I took Chloe and let Kristen sleep. I fed Chloe using stored bottles. We ended up sleeping on the couch. I held her and rocked her until 11:30. I laid her down and she woek up by 11:45. I rocked her and read to her again and she fell asleep. I laid her down at 12:30 and she was up again by 1. So I fed her at the second time about 1:30. She finally fell asleep (we were on the couch downstairs at this time). I got some more olympic watching in and chloe slept well. In fact, she slept from 1:30 to 7 or so. Kristen slept great!

Then Saturday night Chloe fell asleep before midnight again and slept all night! Not sure what time she woke up in the morning but it was late enough that Kristen was VERY happy. Again last night she slept most of the night. Is this a pattern? Can we please have this continue!?!

Saturday we had pictures taken at Portrait Innovations. That is where the picture came from. It was a pretty good wait but we were ready to get out of there. We got a lot of stuff done at the house this weekend too. Yard mowed, trees trimmed, (some) wood chopped, flower beds weeded (a little). Sunday we got the child safety door-knob covers on, safety latches on the chemical cabinets, vacuumed, laundry and a lot more cleaning. Whew, long weekend!

Daddy's Little Girl

Kristen put my favorite outfit on Chloe yesterday. :) It is very cute! "I'll always be daddy's little girl" I love that. Plus it is really cute with the flowers and matching pants.

We went to Michael's to get another basket for the changing table shelves. I couldn't resist. I was holding the baby, Kristen gave me the basket, Baby fits in brainer. It makes me wonder if we ever need swings and bumbo's and cribs and bassinets. Can't we just use baskets (and dresser drawers)? She doesn't look real happy though, does she? I will probably have to get some more 'baby in basket' pictures. When I get them, you will see them. Keep watching!

Wichita Trip

Kristen, Chloe and I took a trip to Wichita this last weekend to visit our relatives and friends. We were able to introduce Grandpa, Grandma and Aunt Cathi to our new daughter.

Grandpa barely gave up Chloe long enough to snap some pictures of her with Grandma and Cathi. He was so happy to see her and hold her.

Grandpa just got out of the hospital this last week and moved to a rehabilitation center and we saw him there. Grandma is staying with him. Saturday Kristen and I joined them for Bingo. It was a fun and exciting time. The old people were yelling at each other! The girl calling out the numbers was calling them so fast I could barely keep up. I felt bad for the elders.

Gotta get back to work. Just thought I would give a quick update.
