Happy Happy One Week Birthday Clarabelle!!!

I can’t believe it’s already been a week!
We’ve been at home most of the time so I can’t believe it’s Friday evening, it’s like I’m in a baby fog.
: )

I know I said I would tell the birth story my next post but as time has flown, I still need to really take some time to get my thoughts in order.
I will say this, the more I think about Clarabelle’s birth the more I loved the experience and I so grateful that the whole birth went the way it did.
I’ll get to it soon…promise!


Here’s what the One Week Birthday looked like around here…

My mom, content Clarabelle, and a very pleased Avery

Did some breakfast, got ready for Clare Bear’s pediatrician’s appointment and then we went outside and took some family pictures….

Aww..she’s so cute!

Still hanging on tight to Dad.


Love this little one


We’re looking at her adoringly…she’s totally zonked out. 🙂

Miss Avery had much more fun playing with her new favorite toy, woody the wood block, while we were taking the pictures.
Good times.

Avery and her new BFF.

We’re still adjusting to having Miss Clare Bear here, sleeping as much as possible and loving getting to experience her little special moments (she spit up for the 1st time yesterday- awesome.).
: )

Enjoy your weekend~

    Emma, I have the same problem with Tess who is not quite 22 months. Still nursing and sometimes refuses to eat. We add raw sprouted protein to her smoothies. Not a huge amount but just a little. She will almost always eat eggs, pancakes and bacon (I'd very easily be ovolactovegetarian but Daddy is a meat eater) or eggs, guacamole, Brown rice and black beans. Or avocado. Those are my only two "go to" meals. And carbs. She'll eat cookies or crackers for days. Glad the doctor was supportive, I've been thinking about going there as well. I'm sick of the weaning conversation.

      Scrambled eggs are a hit so I'm going to keep offering, avocado too.. I was impressed by Little Flower, it is so refreshing to be in a place that supports breastfeeding. Not a formula pamphlet in the place. And applause for continuing to breastfeed? Makes me want to go daily! It's far by driving standards (least from our house) but worth it to be able to not get hassled about parenting choices.

    Wow, I'm so glad we aren't the only ones who have gone through all these ups and downs with nursing. G is still nursing strong at 14.5 months. There were times when I swore he was weaning himself (8/9 months, and I cried and cried), and nowadays lately he nurses like a newborn. Some days I have so much milk that I'm still spurting and needing nursing pads, other days I think he looks at me like, "Turn it on, mama!" I think the lesson after we have put all this time in it should be: our babies and our bodies know what to do! :)
