2 Month Update

How is she 8 weeks old???  Friday marked 8 weeks, and I am still in disbelief that A. Claiborne is 8 weeks old B. that we don't live in Tennessee anymore and C. that Hudson is in Kindergarten!  So much has happened in these 8 weeks that I am surprised we are all still standing!

Our 2 month well check isn't until next week so I will update that later, last month she weighed in at 7lbs 13oz and is in the 5th percentile for weight, 20 1/4 inches long which is 10th percentile, and has a big ol noggin in the 75th percentile.


Claiborne,
You love to let everyone know you are around with your grunts and cries. Your big brother Hudson adores you and gives you kisses all the time, he has tried to pick you up several times but mommy thankfully has stopped him :)


You have good and bad nights but have been eating at 9:30pm and then not again until 3:30 or 4:30. Your acid reflux is for the birds and makes you feel so bad, we have started giving you 1 bottle of sensitive formula at the bedtime feeding and has seemed to help with your gas and fussiness.


When you do sleep at night it is in your rock-n-play which has been a game changer! Naps are held in your pack-n-play where you like to sleep on your tummy....don't worry mommy checks on you often :) We are hoping to get your crib set up again soon...


You are starting to stay awake longer during the day and really like your playmat and walks outside. We've taken you to the river 3 times and although you don't seem to like the change from your own space you do like being on the water and all the fresh air.

We are still so glad you are here and although frustrating when you are up for hours at night, I cannot imagine our family without you!

Newborn Pictures


Nine days after Claiborne was born Mack surprised me with newborn/family pictures with our friend Annie. Annie and I met through blogging/twitter/instagram and she did our Christmas card pictures 2 years ago :)  Here are my favorites from our session!

As If Life Wasn't Crazy Enough....


We are moving back home to Richmond...this Thursday...as in 3 days from now! Mack has accepted what amounts to his dream job with another car company and while the decision to move was the hardest one we've had to make, it is the right move.

Murfreesboro has become our home and it holds our heart. The people we have met and the church community that wrapped their arms around us are going to be hard to leave and hard to replicate in a "new" city.

Going home will be nice, we haven't lived in Richmond in 8 years, having free babysitters is also going to be something we take full advantage of :)

Moving with a 3 week old is not my idea of fun and my wonderful father is flying here to drive myself, the kids, the dogs, and the boat back to VA....he is a saint! The drive would normally take us about 10 hours but I anticipate a much longer drive due to having to stop every 3 hours to feed Claiborne.

So while the big day draws closer I continue to be in a state of denial on top of lack of sleep! Once we are settled I will update with how everything went, but for now please send me some good vibes to make it through these next few days.
