Changes, changes...

So quite a bit has happened since my last post!
On October 22nd, this little lady became a big sister!

Miss Claire Elise Spivey was born at 9:21 am and she was 7 lbs 12 oz and 21 inches long.
She looks quite a bit like Molly did when she was born.

I know her daddy is pretty smitten with her.

Her big sister is too!
Molly just LOVES to give Baby Claire kisses and kisses and kisses!

We had a rough first few nights at home.  Claire was up most of the nights just screaming like crazy- poor thing :(  It just broke my heart to not be able to console her.  And I know that Blake felt completely helpless too.  After two nights of this I called the pediatrician to take her in for a check up.  We thought it was just terrible gas and we didn't know how to fix it.  Turns out, the doctor thinks she has a touch of reflux and gave us a prescription for Zantac and put me on a restricted diet.  We saw immediate results from the medicine!  Claire has been eating a regular every 3 hours now and I am MUCH less stressed out!

One good bit of news, Molly sleeps through Claire crying and Claire sleeps through Molly crying!  WIN-WIN

For Halloween my girls were precious ladybugs!  Molly- of course won't smile for the camera to save her life, but such is the life of a 19 month old! :)

Also, a peek at Miss Claire's nursery
(this used to be Blake's office, so think dark pine paneling and lots of sports themed decor)
Craigslist crib that I painted.  All fabric done by me :) 
Monster bookshelf that Blake built to cover a doorway to the kitchen

Claire's initial monogram that her Aunt Lizzie made for her 
Craigslist dresser that I painted.  Chair from Molly's nursery.  Still have some work to do on the wall decor, but waiting for her newborn pics :)
