More Chloe Pictures

Napping, Erkle style! This picture was taken today.

Sleeping like a baby, ahh... If only the adults in our house were getting great sleep. But we'll get there right! Chloe is already sleeping some 4-5 hour stretches at night, which was better than Emma was doing at this stage in the game. We're not sure if it's Chloe's "easier" temprament or the fact that we are becoming more "Baby Wise", but I'm guessing it's a combination of both.
Checking out her world, Chloe Paige is awake a little more now during the day, which is so much fun. I haven't been able to capture it on camera yet, but she does this adorable little face when she's focusing on something where she puckers her lips to form an "O" and flares her nostrils with eyes intently on her object of interest. She's even graced us with her first smiles, talk about heart melting! I remember when Emma gave us her first gummy grin, there just aren't words for moments like those.Chloe's favorite spot, mommy's arms. Although she doesn't get to be in them nearly as much as her big sister did unfortunately. Oh the plight of the second born, subject to big siblings agressive hugs and kisses, nursing sessions interupted by big sister needing discipline. I guess each one in line has it a bit harder, but hopefully it will make her more resilient.
Okay, so maybe there are some things that are harder about being number two, but you also get more love coming your way! Emma really does love her baby sister, she's always so excited to see her when she wakes up from a nap. In her baby talk, she coos, "oh Co-ee", or "look at her lil feet", or "can I hogeher mommy?"Chloe with Grammy and Papa. When she's lucky enough to beat her sister for the attention, Chloe loves time with her grandparents. In just a week we'll be heading down to the Springs so she can meet her great grandparents and great Aunts, Uncles, and second cousins.

These photos are too precious for words. I can't believe we live in the same town and I haven't held her in over a week!! I'll be by very, very soon. She is beautiful...
