Our Sunday

Today was Claire's first day of Nursery. She LOVED it, but this is what happened when we got home. She was out, cold!
After church and her nap, she wanted to be naked. So then Mike told her she had to be "Modest Girl". Apparently this is what he thinks is modest.
Do you like her "modest" workout outfit?

Our January happenings

Noble, I decided is one of the happiest babies ever! He is always smiling and cooing! I just can't picture life without our little guy. (Look at his chubby belly, I love it!)

Claire as always is doing new things everyday. She still loves to cook, especially making her "Ba-bo" which in her mind translates to Popcorn. She loves the air popper. We make popcorn EVERY day. (I liked this picture because of the way her hair looked after her nap)

Playing with cousins (Lexi). She and Lexi gave each other hugs and kisses, it was really cute!

Use Daddy's gloves to mimic oven mitts.

Wear her new Batman shirt from Aunt Ali and her shoes from Uncle Juddy!

And last but DEFINITELY not least.... Claire went poop on the potty!!!! She was showing us that she was "so big" after going on the potty. Now she is obsessed with everything and everyone going poo poo. We now have to change all of her dolls and stuffed animals because they went poo poo.

Claire loves to help buddy do lots of things...

Tummy Time, where she joins in. It was cute the other day I saw her on the floor with Noble calling "No-me" which translates to "Noby"(a nickname of Noble), encouraging him to look up at her during Tummy Time.
Sit on the Couch. He is enjoying it much more now that she has learned to not choke him in the process.
Bounce in his chair. We are still working on bouncing SOFTLY!

Our little Chef, our little smiley man and other random but cute happenings

Claire has recently started LOVING to help cook. As can be seen below, she is quite fond of her apron and licking the spoon.

Note: The 2 pictures above are separate occasions

Noble's latest development is that he is CONSTANTLY smiling. The cutest is that he looks at Claire like is he totally in love and gives her the best smiles.

I know he isn't smiling, but I liked this pic of our little Buddy. It is a very Shields look in my opinion

Claire has also started being nice to Noble, which is a change from previous behavior. We are all happy about that around here.

This is the first time she ever wanted to hold him for more than 5 seconds. Don't worry, she only choked him a little.
She loves to give him kisses.

Claire has also started copying everything I do with Noble. I had him in the front pack so she stuffed her doll down her shirt to create the same results.

Last but not least, over Christmas we were doing the Wii Fit. After we came home Claire kept getting our Frisbee out and standing on it. Finally I realized she was copying the Wii board.

Christmas Break

We had an eventful Christmas break. I am sorry to say, we didn't capture much of actual Christmas on camera. We will have to get pictures from everyone else. Here are some of our adventures. Here is Claire getting ready to leave Logan for a Saratoga Christmas.

We blessed Noble on December 19th. It was a very nice occasion.

Noble met his Grandpa Frank for the first time. They look alike...
in lots of ways
Noble got to play with his christmas gift... until Claire stole it away and claimed it for her own.
Claire got to play in the snow for the first time.
Here she is all ready to go outside, she loves those mittens!
Sledding in the back yard with Daddy
Sledding with Uncle Juddy who Claire affectionately calls "Dud"
She wasn't too sure of the whole snow thing. Every step she took you had to brush the snow off of her boots.
Lastly, Noble decided Christmas time was the perfect excuse to pack on the pounds. About 2 weeks ago he weighed in at a hefty 13lbs 3 oz. He goes in for his checkup on Monday, we will see what damage he has done since then.
