We're baaack!

We're back. We are going to start posting again. I started work this week and my friends were giving me the business since I abandoned the blog. It isn't that I didn't want to do it but it was part time and part sanity or lack there of. I can't imagine the posts if I had written them after the up til 4 a.m. nights . . . or while I was up til 4 a.m.

So here is a brief update – Claire is here and is 12 ½ weeks old. She is a growing girl and is now pretty much the same size as other babies her age. The doctor did tell her she was a little tall and a little plumper than what the rest are her age but I told her that if she was anything like Mommy, then that would be her life story, welcome to the world. But she is getting more alert and coordinated and beautiful everyday. She smiles when she likes the things she sees and even giggles a bit now. She bats at the toys on her baby gym and likes to swing. She is a good sleeper and pooper and just an all around good baby and a delight to have around. Who knew a crying, pooping, tinkling, eating, sleeping machine (at any given time) could bring so much love and joy into our lives.

Now that I am back to work she is staying with our folks. Two days with my folks and threeish days with Mike's folks. I think Hazel had mixed feelings about my going back to work. On the one hand that thing that Mommy & Daddy brought home that likes to cry all night isn't there during the day anymore and she can get back to her routine. And on the other hand, her days aren't nearly as exciting and Mommy isn't home. The life of a dog.

More to come, we promise!

I'm so glad you've decided to re-enter the blogging world! There were times when I was home that blogging helped me keep my sanity, or at very least my ability to communicate with adults! It's also the best way I can think of to keep all our family and friends up to date on Caroline. And I've "met" some really wonderful people, too! :)
