Random Pictures

We had the camera out the last couple of days and I thought we would post pictures.

The first two pictures are from when we were taking Clay's passport pictures, they weren't right for the passport because they didn't meet all the insane criteria for a passport for an infant (they have to have their eyes open, can't be crying, can't have anything in their mouth like a binky, you have to see both ears, can't have funny shadows, it has to be 2 inches x 2 inches with the head being between 1 inch and 1 3/8 inches - so you can see, for a newborn of less than 2 weeks old, this allows for a very small window of opportunity), but they show how cute and chunky he is. Oh and he was weighed on Wednesday and is up to 9 pounds already!!!

Natalie took this picture of him in his swing. He's not really a fussy baby, but it is nice for him to be in the same room as us when we eat dinner.
Finally a better picture of the two of us, I wish I knew how to get the date stamp off of the picture so I can frame it, I usually just crop it out but that would take out half of Clay's head.
OK, I had to throw this one in because it shows how thin I have gotten (still not where I want to be, but compared to the size 22 I was when I was at my heaviest and the size 16 I was when I got pregnant this time around). I went out and bought new jeans the other day and I am so excited because the were a UK 14 which is a US 12. I haven't been this small since College and just 10 more pounds to lose and I will be at my smallest adult weight.

Okay so those are insane passport photo requirements - good luck with that!

Clay is such a doll and I LOVE the picture of the two of you together.

And YAY again about the new jeans - you look so great!
