More pictures of the little one.
Claire is doing great! She has changed so much already since her first day (or maybe, we have changed, I don't know), but is sure seems that we learn a little something about her everyday: how to make her sleep, how to make her stop crying, when to ignore her cry, how to better give her a bath, how driving around with her is truly the best way to put her to sleep, how she hates cold wipes, etc.

Here are some pics!

"Ahhh the car seat, I love it!"

She is so smart!
I know she is too young to help us with chores around the house like cleaning her room, cooking, and helping with the laundry, but I already found a small but important task for Claire: Nose picker! It is really convenient, she is usually in our arms so she has a perfect angle for those boogers that are hard to reach, plus her small fingers go deeper than mine. Check it out!

This is a little recap video of what our last couple of weeks have been...not bad at all!

Turn on the sound on your computer. This was my first time using this little video maker so bear with me.

A little live action from CEL.

She is here!
I present you, Claire Elza Luna!

I am not going to go into detail about the whole 4 days experience at the hospital, you can read that on Amy's blog shortly, but I will tell you that it was amazing! Here are a few thoughts on the endeavour:
-Although I did not feel them, contractions are the most painful thing I have ever seen. Amy was in a whole other state of mind. She did an unbelievable job staying focused and fighting through the pain.I was very surprised and proud of her.
-The actual birth was very, very emotional for me. If you know me, you know that I am little bit of a cry baby (Yes I cried at Marley and Me). But I was doing great, until I saw her face come out. That was it for me, the tears started to roll and it was hard to stop.
-We have only been home with her for about 5 hours, but I feel like we have already learn so much about her, ourselves, and the rest of out lives.

Here are some pictures:
Before it all started
