2 weeks

Sweet Claire is a dream baby so far. She is a champion sleeper. (I'm pretty sure she got that trait from me!) She's still teeny, but she's back to birth weight plus 9 oz and she's grown an inch! Addie Lane and Lucy are great big sisters... they LOVE showering Claire with kisses and hugs.

Claire Bennett Scoggins

Claire was born on September 15th (Laurie's Birthday!) at 12:45pm. She weighed 6lbs 5oz and was 19inches long.

I was induced and progressing really slowly... at 11:30 I was only 5cm dialated and I thought I'd be waiting all day. I sent Joel and his sister, Joanna, to go eat some lunch. I called the nurse in at 12:30 and told her that I thought my epidural was wearing off because I was feeling some pressure. She checked me and I was 10cm and ready to push. Joel wasn't back yet, so I called him and told him to hurry back. My doctor arrived before Joel... his comment was, "Joel's was there for the other girls' births. Two out of three isn't bad!" Luckily Joel walked in about that time. I pushed at the next contraction and out came Claire!

Addie Lane and Lucy come to visit their new sister. Both are VERY lovey and sweet with Claire.

While Addie hugs and kisses Claire, Lucy runs around the hospital room with this bucket on her head. Funny Girl!

On our way home

Nana, Pawpaw and Aunt Jo came to welcome Claire and keep the big girls. What a big help!!

our mornings

Every morning begins with an episode of Curious George. It used to be that only Addie Lane watched. Now Lucy gets just as excited about George as her big sis. I usually walk into the living room and see these two in the chair together or both snuggling with Joel.

Just like my Big Sister

While playing in her kitchen, Addie Lane decided to change her panties (notice that they are on backwards).

Lucy LOVES her big sister, often wanting to do anything and everything that Addie does. So I was not surprised to find Lucy in not one, but two pair of Addie Lane's panties. She put them on by herself but couldn't quite get them over her diaper. I found her playing just like this...
