Busy Week...

Thanksgiving was great! We went to a hotel brunch with some close friends and there family. It was very posh... champaigne, turkey, dressing, sushi, chocolate fountains, every kind of dessert known to mankind. Basically whatever your heart desired! Then to top a great day off, I got to see the new Harry Potter movie- SO good! They left a lot out, but nothing I would miss. Friday night I made Jeff Thanksgiving dinner Harrow style (very traditional). He insisted that he needed left- overs. Saturday we went shopping and bought a new dining room set, which I am so excited about. And yesterday we did stuff around the house, including putting up the Christmas tree! I just got back from the doctor... blood work- YUCK. This afternoon I go to the chiropracter. Ok, my whole entire week is like this. Some where in there I have to find time to clean, order a cake for the big birthday bash, get party stuff... on and on... My Mom and Dad are getting in on Friday morning- very exciting. So, this should be a very fast week! Yikes!!!

I thought I would post a list of all the things that I am thankful for. I have read so many blogs in the last few days with similar lists, and I think it is a great idea. First, here is a picture of what our new baby probably looks like. It is not really our baby, just a representation. Today I am 12 weeks pregnant, 28 weeks to go! Anyways, here is a list of things that I am thankful and greatful for... My relationship with God. Jeff, because he loves me unconditionally and because he can always make me laugh. Claire, because she is the sweetest little girl in the whole world. Our new baby. Mom and Dad, because I can always depend on them. Home. Friends. Sarah and Ryan because they were so thoughtful to include us for Thanksgiving. FBCOC. Good neighbors. Grandparents. Jeff's job. Being able to stay at home with Claire. Ben and Liz, Kevin and Angie, Paula, Melissa, Halie and Katie, Jeff and Lisa. Little friends for Claire. Ok, I could go on and on, and I know I have left some things off. These are the things that I have been thankful for today. I hope that you all have a great Thanksgiving with people you are thankful for. Don't eat to much!!!

So, Claires fever is gone. Yeah. I think she might be just getting a tooth, fianlly. Jeff gave her a ziplock bag with an ice cube in it and she went to town on it! Whatever works! My doctors appointment went ok. He couldn't find the heart beat, and that was very unsetteling. He could tell it made me nervouse, so he did another ultrasound. Sure enough we got to see the little heart beating away. I think he said 160 beats per minute... wow. So, all in all today turned out to be a good day!


Poor Claire. She woke up this morning with a 103 fever. It broke my heart... she just layed on the floor playing with one toy. She has no other symptoms, so i just gave her tylenol. She is sleeping right now, i hope she feels better when she wakes up. Please pray that she gets better soon, it is so horrible to watch your baby not feel well. This afternoon I have my second OB appointment. Jeff is going with me, and we should get to hear the heart beat. Last time we only got to see the heart beat, so this should be very exciting today. I'll update later after my appointment...

Here is a new picture of Claire. She finally has enough hair for me to do something with it! All of her little friends have tons of hair and teeth... not Claire. She is somewhat lacking in the hair area, and as for teeth... well, they are non- existant! Having no teeth doesn't slow her down when it comes to eating though. For lunch she ate a whole entire can of carrots... i think she gets that from Jeff! I'm sure she will really enjoy Thanksgiving dinner! Enjoy the weekend!

Funny... but not.

For those of you that know Jeff, you will totally understand this funny comment he made last night. We were standing in our bathroom, at our own sinks getting ready for bed. Out of the no were he turns to me and says "Ya know, once you have kids, they never go away." Ok, so at first I was like- "JEFF, that is horrible..." which i say a million times a day. but then he went on to say that he would never want it any other way. He can't imagine not having Claire, and either can I. He then went on to ask me if I ever thought of how our life would be now if we didn't have Claire. No, actually I had not pondered that thought. He had... vacations, two incomes, etc... my response "yeah, that stuff is nice, but would you rather go to Cancun, or have the sweetest little girl in the whole world lick your face goodnight (her version of a kiss.)?" He chose the wet kiss. That made me feel great, it is a very sweet thing to see a Dads love for his Daughter.
Ok, for the not so funny part... after our conversation i could not sleep. I layed in bed worrying (which I do well) about if I were ever to lose Claire. What would I do? It makes me teary just to think about it. So enough of that... i finally fell asleep and woke up to Claire chattering in her crib. Not a bad way to wake up!

Claire's New Coat

My Mom made Claire a new coat for winter! It is SO cute... I hope it starts getting cold here, otherwise she will never get to wear it. Today I made an outfit for Claire. I wanted to make her a Christmas outfit, something special that you wouldn't see any one else wearing. It turned out to be a success, kind of... it is so big i think she might be able to wear it when she is 4. I guess I have some re-sewing to do!

The park...

Claire and I went to the park today. She had a great time swinging and playing on the slide. She was NOT happy when it was time to go home. Last night she learned that her shoes go on her feet. She spent a very long time sitting on the floor trying every- which- way to get them on her feet. It is so fun to see her actually learning new things. I knew it would happen eventually, but you never know when she will surprise you with something new. Another new thing... seeing a shampoo bottle or a lotion tube and rubbing her hands togather! Thats my girl... a product junkie in the making! And last but not least, and my favorite: when I sing Bah, Bah Black Sheep to her she will yell BAH, BAH until I sing it again... over and over and over again! What a fun little girl...
