Micah Claire's First Christmas!!!

Micah Clarie had a wonderful first Chirstmas. She loves the exersaucer and stackable musical stars that Santa brought her. Although she got many great gifts, she was most thrilled with all the shiny wrapping paper.

Getting Better

Well it's taken a little over a week, but Micah Claire's cold is finally gone. Usually at meal time, Micah sits in her bouncy. But, recently she has turned into a nosey rosey who wants to see everything (I think she gets that from her daddy). So, this week we let her sit in her high chair and she loves it! She has really started talking in the last 2 weeks. She is now making the m, d, h, and n sounds along with this VERY high pitched squeal she just loves to make. Only a few more days to Santa comes!!!!!!!

Sick Little Girl

Well, Micah has had her first cold. On Tuesday we had to take her to the doctor. He said she has a small cold, nothing too serious. Of course mom, dad and Nana have done nothing but spoil her this week. Her daddy (the one who said she didn't need toys yet) went and bought her a baby doll to make her feel better. Can you say whipped!!!! She is finally starting to feel better today. So, hopefully she will all better by the weekend. Life use to be so calm and peaceful.

THANK GOD IT'S FRIDAY!!!! On Tuesday Micah Claire turned 3 months old and I went back to work part-time. Of course I cried all the way to work, but luckily I was so busy seeing patients that it kept me distracted. Micah just loves her sitter, which is a HUGE relief for me. She now weighs 14#5oz and is 25 1/4 inches long. If you were to plot her height-for-age on a growth chart she would be off the growth chart (somewhere around 102nd percentile,YIKES). She is laughing and babbling non-stop and trying to sit up on her own. We put the Christmas tree up and she loves to look at the lights. We let her help put her baby's first Christmas ornaments on the tree. Yes I said ornaments (plural). Shawn bought her one and Grandpaw Barry has bought her 4. Good thing she's not spoiled!

I can't believe Thanksgiving has come and gone already. We had thanksgiving with Shawn's parents and of course we had to watch the Arkansas v/s LSU game. Micah had a wonderful time visiting with her Mimi and Poppa, Aunt Mandee, Uncle Jerry, Aunt Stacy, Uncle Brian, and cousin Emily and Colton. In the last week Micah Claire has started grabbing for things and holding on to them. It's just amazing to watch her grow and change everyday. This is my last week home with her. It is going to be so hard to leave her!

What a week!

This week has been nothing short of crazy. Mom, Micah and I left early Saturday morning to head to my Mom's parents house. This was the first time that Granny and Papaw Stoner got to see Micah Claire. Micah slept the entire three hour trip there, but the ride home was much different. Micah was exhausted and tired of being in her car seat. So Nanna had to sit in the back with Micah and sing her every song she has ever heard. Needless to say, we will not be taking another long rode trip for a while.
Micah and I went for her 2 month check up yesterday. She is now 13# 9oz and is 24 1/2 inches long. The doctor said that Micah will probably be around 6 feet tall if she keeps growing at this rate. YIKES!!!! And, yes we had to get those infamous 2 month shots. It was the most heartbreaking experience of my life. I was still crying after Micah stopped. I am already dreading the 4 month shots.

Micah's First Halloween

We decided that it would be too hard to take Micah out for Halloween. So, we invited the grandparents over to our house for dinner and pictures. Micah wasn't too excited about being in her pumpkin suit. We dressed her up and took pictures very quickly (before her Cowart temper could come out, haha).

4 weeks old

Micah Claire is now 4 weeks old. She now weighs 10# 13oz and is 22 1/2 inches long. The breastfeeding is going great, so mom pumped some milk and let daddy give Micah her first bottle. It was a very messy experience!

2 weeks old

Micah is growing like a weed. At her 2 week check up she was 9# 7oz and 21 1/2 inches. Shawn is now back to work, so it's just mom and Micah! Who knew being a parent was such hard work. But, it's most definitely worth it. She is truly the love of our life!

Micah Claire

After 41weeks, Micah Claire finally made her arrival into our lives. She was born September 4th at 6:59 p.m. She was a healthy 9#5oz and 20 1/2 inches long. There is no joy like that of being a parent. It is truly nothing short of a miracle!
