Moving Day

In May we moved out of our condo in downtown Milwaukee to a house between West Bend, Saukville, Grafton and Cedarburg.  We decided that a one bedroom condo wouldn’t suffice when Chloe gets older so having three bedrooms with a decent amount of land is a very nice change.

We were lucky enough to have Andy’s parents and brother come down to help along with some of our friends.  (05/15/2010)

Here we are relaxing after a long moving day.  Thanks to Nate, we all had a cigar to officially celebrate Chloe’s birth.  (05/15/2010)

Chloe’s Second Month

During Chloe’s second month of life we got settled into family life and were having a great time playing with and holding her.  She was still trying to get rid of jaundice so we had to wake up several times during the night to feed her, but other than that, things went very well.  The jaundice went away after about 1.5 months which is why she is starting to look less yellow in the pictures.  One big milestone that Chloe met when she was about 1.5 months old was smiling.  She first smiled during diaper changes and then eventually she smiled at many more things.  It was nice to see that she is such a happy baby.

These are pictures of Chloe on her 1 month birthday.  Being a birthday girl is hard work!  (04/22/2010)

Here is a Chloe in her bear suit.  It was way too big for her, but we knew when she was old enough to fit into it, it wouldn’t be cold out so we had to make sure we used it now.  (04/27/2010)

Here is Chloe showing us her tongue.  (04/28/2010)

We ended up accepting offers on both our condo and the house we wanted to buy.  We knew we were in for a busy couple weeks of packing, so we invested in a swing for Chloe to entertain her while we were busy.  She liked it at first, but after a while she figured out she wasn’t being held.  (05/08/2010)
