fairy princess (1280x498)

Our girl is 3 weeks old already. I can’t believe how quickly time passes. At her 2 week appointment, she weighed 7 lbs. 10 oz. She’s gaining an ounce a day. FANTASTIC. (The Persichetti’s gave Clare this too-cute outfit, and it gained her lots of attention at Mass tonight. Who am I kidding?! It wasn’t her outfit that gleaned the attention.)

julius (1280x498)

It was great to see so much of Aunt Jenny and Cousin Julius. He truly has the best laugh! Thank God for his daily skype with Gramma & Papa…it didn’t take him long to warm up to them, despite the 1600 miles normally between them.

We tease papa that he might not be able to claim Clare’s toes, but he wins in the chicken leg department. The picture on the right is Sara’s favorite so far…such bright eyes and a sweet disposition. That’s our girl!

love bug (1280x498)

The pose on right has earned Clare the nickname “Lovebug” by Sara (or “The Comma” more lovingly referred to by me). Clare LOVES to be curled up and snuggled right up against your chest. There’s no denying her in utero position.

More “Lovebug” poses…this time necessary due to the onset of reflux. Yep. She is a Boster babe, and destined to sleep sitting/laying up.

family (1280x498)

Our family of five. We miss big brother & sister immensely, but are certain (thanks to Skype) that they are loving their Wyoming vacation. The “adventures” are already endless and they still have three weeks! Golly!! Clare is so small compared to our “big” kids.

pool (1280x498)

Fun at the pool…

Much to Michael’s delight, he is still small enough to launch into the air. He’s also quite proud this summer to get the opportunity to swim without his life vest. He’s becoming quite the little fish.

Michael doing “the Tree”. (Daddy did “the Tree” once, and did it so well that his left ear was still ringing 15 minutes later.)

The last picture does not do justice to how badly Daddy and Michael got whupped in this game of “chicken fight”. It also doesn’t do justice to how very funny Michael was each time he went under the water and struggled to right himself again.

greenway (1280x498)

We love the Greenway. Notice the “science bag” Katie is carrying? It’s filled with clear plastic bottles for collecting samples, and of course her travel microscope hung on a cord around her neck. That girl just might become a scientist after all.

loving (1280x498)

Proud grandparents of FOUR children now.

At only 15 months, Julius could sure rock those horses.

Picture on the right is Michael’s signature way of showing Clare his love. He LOVES to be in her face and touching her too! Can’t wait for that boy to return and love on his sister some more.
