Claire is two weeks old today!! She had her checkup and had gained a whopping 15 oz. in the last 9 days to bring her current weight to 6 lb. 13 oz. She likes to eat!! She's such a good little baby. As you can see she is not our sleepy little newborn anymore. When she's awake she is so alert and looks all around. The second picture here is of our "little burrito". She loves to be wrapped up like that and carried around. I'm thinking I should just get a papoose board and strap her to it. Have a great 4th!! Love, Nancy
Here is a link to our Caring Bridge Blog that journals the story of our miracle boy and his new heart.

Claire: "Grandpa, I want milk." Grandpa: "How do you spell milk?" Claire: Looks at grandpa for a minute and then says, "You tip it!". I'm sure she was wondering why he wanted to know how you "spill" milk. (7/8/12)

5 y/o friend: "My brother's friend is scared of trees and branches." Spencer: "That's crazy!" Friend: "He thinks there's scary stuff in them." Spencer: "Like what?" Friend: "Porcupines" Spencer: "And mini-dragons?" Friend: "Yeah." (9/13/11)
