Want to see a really cute baby...

I should really be writing these things down in claire's baby book, but I find myself checking here to see what Audrey was doing at this age. Anyway, claire is 7 weeks old today! She weighs just a smidge under 9 pounds I would say she's about 21 inches long. She is a wonderful sleeper!!! She did an 8 hour stint at exactly 3 weeks old, then it was back to about 6 hrs for a couple weeks. As soon as she hit 6 weeks, she has been consistently sleeping 9 hour stretches...usually 9ish to 6! I know we hit the sleeping jackpot with both of the girls, and for that I am so grateful! They must know momma likes her sleep!

And seriously, could this child be any cuter?!?!

Welcome to the world baby Claire!

Claire is here!!! Here is the short and sweet version of her birth because that is exactly what it was...short & sweet!

Claire's birth story:

Checked into the hospital at 7am for scheduled induction on June 2, 2011
Went through paper work, got iv in around 8am with fluid & pitocin. I was 3cm 60% effaced.
I started to feel contractions as they gradually got stronger, went to the bathroom at about 9am and felt a small pop - my water had broken! Afterwards, contractions started pick up, coming every 2-3 minutes and felt mostly in my back. I asked for the epidural and was prepped and given the dose by 10... This was by far the hardest part of the day - waiting for anesthesiology to show up! (just like Audrey). After, I felt pretty drugged up and foggy so I just closed my eyes while Ben watched the French open and we listened to Michael buble radio on pandora... At about 11:30, our nurse checked me and I was 10cm but had no urge to push. Dr. Jhaveri was called in and got to our room at 12:15. The room was prepped and I was told I could start to push even though I didn't feel the need to. I pushed 2 times for 2 minutes and Claire McKim Cooke was born at 12:35pm. 6lbs, 12oz & 19.75 inches

We are now home and loving our life as a family of 4!!!

The many faces of Audrey

Haven't I used that title before??

Anyway...We are snowed in (again) so this morning we decided to have a Salon Cooke "spa day" complete with mani/pedis and little "makeup" application! Of course, Audrey always puts on a show when the camera is in her face!

Edited pic (courtesy of photoshop express app- highly recommend!) :

Ok, we're getting a little antsy now

Sad face :(

It's the girl of a thousand faces!

'Cold in Cleveland'

Well, there's not much to do when it's January in Cleveland so here's what we've been up to lately!

First, we're taking a stab at potty training:

Could these be any more embarrassing??

Next, we play in the snow for about 5 minutes

And, finally we eat chocolate chip cookies to warm up our rosy cheeks!

And here's BC 2 in the belly at 19 weeks (I think?)

Stay warm!!!

1st haircut!

No, your eyes aren't deceiving you...2 posts in one day!

We took Audrey to get her haircut this past Sunday. It was really getting long in the front and needed a little cleaning up in the back. Gotta keep those curls bouncy!

Lollipops make everything more enjoyable!

All done!

Looking good kid!
