2 Months Old

Published in: Daily Photo

My li’l lovebug, also known as “The Coywolf,” also known as your niece, is now two months old (officially nine weeks). She’s also juuust shy of 10 pounds and no longer fits the smallest of her newborn onesies, a fact I find bittersweet. 🙁

Right now Connor Claire likes…

  • Cooing, gurgling and laughing. She’ll talk your ear off with her chorus of cute baby sounds!
  • Smiling and spreading her sunshine around. 🙂 Connor smiles all the time and seems to be a very happy girl.
  • Taylor Dayne. HAHA! We found this out while driving in the car a couple weeks ago. Connor was having a “high needs” afternoon, so El Hub and I took her for a spin while we ran some errands. She was crying in her carseat when I left the car to pick up a pizza we’d ordered for dinner (half pepperoni and olive, half veggie), and when I got back to the car, Taylor Dayne’s I’ll Always Love You was playing on the radio.

    Connor was super chill in the backseat… Ah, the soothing power of the easy listening station! ‘Tis magical.

  • Watching Gilmore Girls with mom. I’ve been re-watching the series while I feed her. Connor was shocked — SHOCKED! — when she found out that Dean was going to marry Lindsey.
  • “FaceTiming” with her lola and lolo (Tagalog for grandma and grandpa). My mom and dad are super obsessed with Connor (she’s their first grandchild), and since they can’t visit her every day, we FaceTime. They spend the entire call chatting with her, and it is so, so cute.

Clearly, This Is My Child

When you put a hot pink sequined feather showgirl-style headdress on your baby and she smiles with delight? — that’s when you realize that, OH YEAH! This is definitely my kid. For. Sure.

(I had exactly the exact same reaction the first time I put this headband on, by the way. The apple did not fall far from the tree.)

Seriously, I’ve been waiting all my life to take that picture at the top. Like, my sole purpose on this earth was to take a snapshot of this baby wearing a hot pink headdress.

Oh, and here’s another shot of the outfit, sans the bold accessory. The onesie and pants are by Circo, both from Tar-ghay.

Mint green and gray = a classic pairing. Plus, you can’t go wrong with leggings with a zig-zag pattern!

Tabs and His Protégé

Published in: Daily Photo

Everyone in our family takes turns watching Connor Claire, even her big brother Tabs! 🙂

Although, to be honest, sometimes he’s not too thrilled when I ask him to babysit…

I guess he’s got places to go and people to see? Whatevs.

Because he’s all about multitasking, Tabs takes his responsibility as an opportunity to teach his protégé everything he knows about kitty super modeling. Currently, they’re working on a patented Tabs pose called “the distant disinterested stare.”

She’s getting pretty good at it!

Eyelash Jackpot!

When Connor Claire was still in my tum, I hoped and prayed that she’d come into this world safe, sound and healthy…and with her daddy’s lashes, LOL!

I know, so silly. But El Hub’s lashes are one of the reasons I fell in love with him (they’re so long, lush and curly!), and I really, really wanted Connor to inherit them. And dagnabbit, she actually did!

See the cute curl and lovely length? Yeah, she definitely did *not* get my lashes, which are short, straight and completely uninteresting.

So…JACKPOT!!! 🙂
