More pictures

Here are some miscellaneous photos from the last week or so.


Claire on her activity mat, eying the yellow sun.


Getting ready to punch the hanging redbird. (Ok, maybe not, but that's what it looks like)








Wesley decided to try riding his bike while wearing Daddy's boots the other night. We couldn't pass up the opportunity for a cute photo.


Or two.


Or three. And yes, those are big boy underwear he's got on. (Sorry to embarrass you, Wesley) This is week 2 of potty training and he's doing awesome. He's even woken up in the middle of the night a few times asking for help to use the potty. He was also accident free at daycare yesterday and a few days last week. He's picked this up amazingly fast.


Claire's hair is starting to thin on the sides, so during bathtime I decided to accentuate her mohawk hair-do. She helped make the picture even funnier by going cross-eyed right at the moment trying to look at the camera.





Sitting pretty on the Boppy watching Mommy fold laundry.

Big Brother Little Sister


Trying to get a "perfect" photo of the two little ones. It didn't work, but we got some good ones.


Happy Big Brother, not happy Little Sister. Wesley loved holding Claire and has wanted to do it again many times since we took these pictures.


Umm..... Mommy.....


It's o-tay, Baby Claire.


Smiling despite the crying.

Visit from the Cowles

Grandma and Grandpa Cowles came for a visit to see Claire and spend some time with Wesley. Here are some pictures from their time here.

Digging in the bag for more.


On a tractor at the apple orchard with Grandma.

Look Daddy! Lots of apples for Mommy to use to make pies. Yum yum.


Burning his endless supply of energy.


Riding back to the car with Grandpa.


Wesley and Claire.


Big brother kisses (again).


"It's o-tay, Baby Claire"


Trying to focus on something.

Baby Claire arrives





Claire Emily Cowles was born Monday, August 23rd at 5:05pm. She was 9lbs 2oz and 22 inches long.


Greeted by big brother Wesley.


Sizing up Mom.


Big Brother Wesley got an armband of his own from the nurse (which he promptly wanted removed).


Grandma Pataky holding Claire at the hospital.











Milk coma





Wesley playing on the activity mat with his sister.


Wesley keeps wanting to "touch her". Here he's patting her hat.


Big brother kisses.


Grandma Pataky with the kids.


Celebrating her one week birthday. Wesley did not want to cooperate for this picture, but we decided that was realistic of many moments at home right now. :)


Holding the clock (and trying to figure out why we took it off the wall in the first place).
