Claire is doing fabulously. We are still having some behavior issues, both at school and with her sister, but they are greatly improved. We've been working HARD on potty training and she is doing great. If I'm with her constantly, and can be attentive, she can stay dry all day. It takes a combination of her asking to go, and just taking her frequently, but she is totally getting it. I am hopeful that she will be out of diapers with a few months.
Claire weighs 26 lbs, which was exactly my guess.
Bridget is 14 lbs, 7 oz (I guessed 15 lbs), and 26 in. She grew 2 1/2 inches in 2 months, and is 93% for length!
Bridget is fabulous, sleeping and eating well. She's a happy, smiley baby. She's rolling, playing with toys, and gnawing on any finger left too close to her mouth. In fact, I was holding her on my hip the other day and had Claire's cup of rice milk in my hand. All of a sudden I look down and she's slurping milk up out of the straw!
Since Bridget is so tall, we are having to make changes much faster than we did with Claire. She only has 3 more inches before she outgrows her infant seat. I knew this was coming soon, but I really want her to be sitting independently before moving to a convertible car seat, as I wouldn't have her bucket for shopping trips.
We are also going to have to make a change in her sleeping arrangement. Right now, she is in a bassinet next to the bed. The weight limit is 15 lbs, and stretched out she is almost touching both ends. The problem is our room is small. And our bed is big. (We bought a king size bed while I was pregnant, and there is no way I'm giving it up). A pack and play won't fit, and she's not ready to move down stairs as she still gets up once a night to eat. I don't want her sleeping with us (she does on occasion while nursing, and I can't sleep), but I'm not sure what other options there are.
Summer is always busy. We try to take advantage of the longer days and are outside as much as possible. Which leaves little time for computer time or reading time for me. So, while I haven't been commenting as much as I'd like I'm trying hard to keep up with reading about all our friends!
