She had a great time being on her tummy time mat. Grandma Donna also came over to spend time with her grand daughter. Hopefully, tomorrow we can finish the back yard patio project and post the "after" pictures.

This picture is from last night, she is all dressed and ready for bed. I think she really looks like Andrew in this picture. Very adorable.
I finally got in a picture with Chloe! I was waiting for a good hair day....these days that means I got take a shower :)
We gave Chloe her second bath a few days ago. She really seems to like it! No screaming fits, the other parents had warned us about.
It may have to do with the Euro Wash Pod we bought for her. It is supposed to simulate the womb, and make the baby comfortable. It seems to work! You can buy them on Amazon.com if anyone is interested. They also carry them at Junior Towne here in Anchorage. We highly recommend it if you like happy bathing babies!
These hooded towels are great too! Thanks Janice! No matter how many pictures we take, it never seems to be enough! These weeks are just flying by! Tomorrow Chloe will be 4 weeks old. It is just unbelievable. She is still in newborn clothes. There are a few things that fit her from 0-3 months, but most of it may as well be for toddlers because she swims in them! She is quite tall, but very slender....not a bad combo if it sticks with her!

This picture captures Chloe's super woman pose. She does it all of the time. What you can't see is that one leg is bent and one extended as if she is taking off in flight to save the world. It is adorable!
Pretty in pink.
It is hard to get a sense of scale for how tiny Chloe really is. I put her in my rocking chair, she is swimming in it! She is ready for a nap here--super yawn!

This is a picture of Chloe getting ready to leave the house.
And here she is with Mom and Dad :)
Cheers to the new grandparents.
They are so adorable aren't they?
The trip to Midnight sun was great. So far they have been here 4 days and already we have done so much! That is probably why there have been so few posts! Most of the time has been spent loving on Chloe, or changing her diaper or feeding her. Who knew it took so long to leave the house? The real reason it takes so long is because it requires at least 1 diaper change and a minimum of 2 feedings until she is ready to go. How is it that I feel like she has just eaten and already it is time to eat again? Time just flies by with a baby!
Grandpa Allen with Chloe. It is so great to have the help holding her! It gives me a chance to brush my teeth, and do all of the other little things I took for granted 2 weeks ago.
Grandma Julie got her to take her first pacifier! Yay it is progress! She only kept it for a few minutes, but hey that is a start!
We took her for a walk on the hillside trails and got eaten by mosquitoes! My poor Dad is getting attacked because he stopped to let me get the camera out. The dogs loved the walk too, although they did not like the mosquitoes either!
and last but not least the best mugs ever! Thanks Mary! They are cute but also so in vogue!

Chuck, Lupe and Bella also came by, but they took all the pics with their camera (guest post???)
Here is Chloe at her first job, what a hard worker!

We caught her in this funny sleeping face, what a cutie!
Our friend Amy came over and brought us some delicious lunch (Thanks Amy!!!)
Also, she was able to get all of us to stay still long enough for our first family portrait
Elena also sent up a tiny baby bracelet. We never thought it would fit, but actually its still a bit big on her little wrist.
Chloe has also been spending some daddy time, she really likes when Andrew holds her
Yesterday (Saturday) was Chloe's first big day out on the town. We met up with Donna and went to lunch at Snow City downtown. Chloe was very good sitting with us in her car seat
Then we walked down to the Saturday Market
It was a really nice day, although Chloe spent most of the day fast asleep in her stroller.
Thats all for now...

Chloe had her first doctor's appointment yesterday, and amazingly she did very well when they dressed her down to do the exam.
