12 Months Old and Nearly 4

One last gushing over Claire post, I promise. Maybe. Anyway, I had borrowed this quilt to hang up for Claire’s party, which we intended to have in the backyard until mother nature had other plans. It was handmade by my grandma Koster many years ago and I have lots of memories of seeing it around our family cottage. Grandma never got to meet my girls, so it’s kind of cool to see them playing with something of hers. It’s becoming...

First Birthday Baby!

It happened! My baby turned one on the 4th and we had a party and left for vacation all in one weekend. There’s not much to say about her party other than my heart and house were full of the people we love and not even the rain could spoil my sunny girl’s big day. We had a vintage/baby animal theme with pink glass and old lace. I went crazy with the dessert table, because when else do you have...

Claire’s Almost One!

Every mom says they can’t believe their kid is a year old right? Well, Claire’s birthday is on Friday, and it feels like we just did a first birthday party for Ellie about five minutes ago, so how can it be Claire’s already?...

Claire Bear 11 Months Old

Claire turned 11 months on the Fourth of July while we were traveling on a multi state road trip. We covered lots of ground, so I’ll share an update on that soon. Meanwhile, my baby won’t. Stop. Growing! Claire is so much fun and I wish I could keep her this age for a while longer. She has been seeming so much older to me lately....

Claire Evelyn – 9 Months Old

Claire was 9 months old yesterday. She is the most delightful little girl and I get comments all the time about how she seems happy all the time. She mostly is, unless you get too close to bedtime when she’s just done with everything for the day. She has a lot of stranger anxiety lately, so no offense nice cashier lady at Costco who made her lip quiver and eyes well up just by daring to talk to her. Still...

Claire and Ellie Update

Claire baby is 8 months old! She has had a bit of a rough past month, with pink eye, colds, and other issues, but seems to be getting better every day. We have had some regression with sleep, and I think we spoiled her too much when she was sick. She’s just so sweet otherwise, it’s hard not to give in and hold her when she wants you. We’ve had some milestones happen the past month as well. Claire is...

Claire Bear is 6 Months!

I love that little face so much. This girl brings so much joy to our family and we are so thankful for her. Her personality default is happy all day long and she only cries if she’s tired or hungry. I don’t have much to say without getting all mom gushy about her. Claire is my little angel baby. I love this age. She’s finally old enough to roll around and play with toys on the floor by herself for...

Claire Evelyn – 4 Months Old

Claire just had her 4 month checkup on Thursday and she’s growing like crazy. She’s 98th percentile for height and 75th for weight (15 lbs, 6 oz). She caught up to Ellie for height who was always around the 98th percent or higher, but she’s not quite as much of a chunk. I spend every day smothering her with kisses and smelling her head. It’s the best! Claire has a new trick that I haven’t caught on camera yet, but...

Claire Evelyn – 3 Months

Claire is three months old today! Before she was born, I wondered what her personality would be like, and the answer is that she is the sweetest baby I’ve ever seen. Well, maybe she’s tied with her sister, but in truth, she has an easier smile, and is far less quick to fuss. She is the most laid back little sweetheart and I can’t get enough of snuggling her and smelling her amazing baby smell. Claire is happy just to...
