I am so inspired by my dear friend Kristi ("the Herrings" off to the right), who keeps up an AMAZING blog of her family. She is so good about posting and now has this awesome "scrapbook" of their lives! So, I have determined to get better about posting. Let’s see how long it lasts!!
February was SUCH a fun month with Clara. She is SO precious!! I absolutely can’t get enough of her! I still miss her when she sleeps, and have to sneak in to peek on her, just to get to see her sweet little face. She is such a doll, and constant joy. To be honest, I was really nervous about "motherhood" and even up until the day she was born was not ready for it…wasn’t ready for my life to change, was really happy with the way things were. But there is no way I would ever go back now. I love her so incredibly much, and love getting to be her mom! She turned 3 months old on February 13th. It is so hard to believe how fast it is going! I cried putting away her 0-3 month old clothes, and only found solace in knowing that there are so many wonderful things to look forward to!
I can’t figure out why that is sideways. but anyway…I put her in a cute frilly dress for valentine’s day, and all she wanted to do was eat it!! *L*
That is actually one of her favorite things to do these days — put anything within any proximity of her mouth right into it! so, watch out if you get close… I was kissing her cheek yesterday and before I knew it she had turned and my nose was fully immersed in the slobber monster!
ok, I’m really going to have to figure out that sideways thing. but nothing is going to deter me right now from my new "one post a week at least" goal! but I thought it was a funny "case in point" — I was trying to take a picture of her sweet face and she saw the cord dangling from the camera and went for it! right into the mouth!
This is her new favorite position — fanny up, legs in the air. It is so funny to watch her try to "catch" her feet!
Here she is hanging out with her best friend Drew – such a cutie! Drew is more than twice as old as Clara but that doesn’t mean anything to a chunky monkey! 😀
We went to the Melting Pot to celebrate Valentine’s Day. It was so fun and the food was SO GOOD! Aunt Kristi and Papi took care of Clara…
Here we are at all three of our very first caucus. It was so exciting to feel like a part of the process!!
Brian was elected our precinct convention chair. He did a good job!
on March 6th, it snowed! a LOT! it was so pretty!! Clara is our own little snow angel…
And because I think her little snowsuit is so freakin’ hilarious, you have to endure just one more picture of it…
We went to the lakehouse the weekend of March 1st and 2nd and had lots of fun with Mimi, Papi and Aunt Kristi. Uncle Eric surprised us by coming back from a business trip to Canada early, and after an initial scare that had me literally jumping onto a flower pot, we were really glad he was there! After a 6 year hiatus, I discovered that I do, in fact, like the game Cranium. But badminton…let’s just say I put the "bad" in Badminton, and two Swasko sister’s make it even worse. Brian is already working really, really hard on Clara’s hand-eye coordination skills to prevent a similar fate…
Clara loves sitting in her bumbo!
that silly Papi!!
happy March everyone!
