She is still growing at the rate of half a pound a week. Amazing! I told my mom today that if this doesn't slow down eventually, we're going to be on Dr. Phil for having an enormous baby!!
Seriously, though, she is doing so well and I'm so thankful to God that she is thriving like she is. What a miracle.
In other health news, the sniffles that she had when we first got her never went away and this past week it seemed to get a little worse. We're not sure if it was due to her getting a few vaccinations, or that we started using a humidifier, or that we switched her formula to powder. All three things happened at the beginning of last week, so it could be any of them, a combination, or none. Either way, I spoke with a nurse at our pediatrician's office yesterday and she said to stop the humidifier, which we had already done. They're supposed to help, but in Clara's case it seemed to be hurting. And she has seemed to be better since stopping it, so that's good. She never got too sick, her temperature has been fine and she's eating and sleeping okay, so it's not a big deal. And she's growing like a weed so she's obviously healthy!
Clara is having some visitors this week and we are just so excited we can't even contain ourselves! Tomorrow our friends N, D and baby L are stopping by. Then on Thursday, Aunt Amy and Uncle Joe are flying in. We can't wait!!
Here are some more pictures to leave you with:

This is the digital image I chose from Clara's free photo shoot. She slept for about an hour while a very lovely and talented photographer took some pictures, and now we have this adorable image. Good deal!
