We're still here....

Really it's been forever since I posted. Things are going very well aside from the fact that we are in the terrible twos.
Claire is a happy, energetic, nonstop, independent little girl.
I can't believe that we are on the cusp of her 2nd birthday.

She wants to be so grown up already it seems.  She wants to do everything herself and has a temper to boot.  Really her temper rivals both her Daddy and I.  But we are working on it and usually by days end we are exhausted.
She is growing by leaps and bounds and her speech is really coming along.  It seems like she went to bed one night and we couldn't understand what she was trying to say...then she woke up and we could understand a lot more.  So flippin' cute... this little one...

I've changed jobs and am now working in the PICU. Working 5 days a week(gasp)...was making me feel like I wasn't seeing her a whole lot, then I was tired and I felt like the quality of our interactions wasn't there. Fortunately for me, I was able to change jobs and will be working 3 nights a week(once I'm off orientation)..that way I will be able to be with her every day and will only miss 3 dinners and bedtimes each week vs 5 all days. Jon will be changing his shift to days and now Jon and I will be able to see eachother more now....we'll see how that goes....haha!
With my new schedule I'll be able to keep up with the blog now....and will try..I may even post a second one today....
