39 weeks old!!!

Yesterday was Sunday, and we know what that means....  Baby girl is another week older and (it seems) years smarter!!!  I think she really loves having her picture made, since I have had this camera in her face since she was born, she knows how to smile on cue and she makes some funny faces for Momma now.
So much has happened in the past week I need to share with you, so I will probably be doing a post a day this week so I don't get behind in sharing all the fun pictures we have to show you!!!
Sweetness' family came these last 4 days and met Chloe and brought her presents, and we took them around town, so I will be blogging all about that AND Chloe's first 4th of July!!!!
In the meantime- Chloe's stats are that she weighs in at 17.8 lbs, and she is soooo long!!!  She can wear 6-9m stuff depending on the length, if it goes all the way to her feet- she definitely needs 9 months!!!  My girl is going to be super tall I think!!!

She now claps her little hands all day long- which by the way is the cutest thing ever!!!  To see her little hands clapping together in shear delight makes my heart so happy!!!  She also has stopped that ear piercing screaming she used to do, and finally her sounds have evolved into the cutest little babbling and cooing again.
She is reaching the stage now where she is becoming a clingy Momma's girl- and I do not mind in the least!!!  She is going through a "Momma-stage" right now and Daddy (who is normally the fan favorite) will not do -- for this week anyway.  So we have been snuggling together and I'm loving every minute of it.  She started putting her little hands out for me to pick her up r hold her, and I am so happy!!!
She is also having an evolution of her normally amazing sleeping habits!!   She usually puts herself to sleep after we lay her in the crib with her light up seahorse and her "tagg-ie" blanket, but the last 7-8 nights, she will not go to sleep by herself. So I have been rocking her to sleep every night. 
I don't mind rocking her- in fact I love it, but I don't want to make it so that she will no longer be able to go to sleep by herself.  But we will just play it by ear, it may have been because we had company and she knew it and just wanted to stay up with her company  :)
Overall, this past week has been so fun, as we watch our amazing little peanut blossom into the sweetest little girl!!! Both Sweetness and I have ben on vacation for 5 straight days and we have got to spend some real quality time as a family!!  It has been over 100 degrees every day this past week, which has negated us going outside to swing or do the pool again.  It is just TOOO HOT to even breathe out there.  But the heat wave seem s to have broken today, with a high of ONLY 86, it feels so much more manageable!!!
Stay tuned for Chloe's first 4th of July in the next post!!!
