Sitting Up

Claire is getting really good at holding her head up and can sit for a few minutes when propped up. We figure it is only a matter of time before she's doing cartwheels.

Claire... relaxing

Well... really, what else does she do? This picture is a week or so old, but I think it's cute. We've been really busy. I go back to work right after Labor Day, so we're rushing to squeeze in as much time together as we can.

Guess Who Can Roll Over?

Well... I suppose you don't need more than one guess. Yesterday, when Claire got up from her nap, we were playing in her crib. She's not a big fan of being on her stomach when on the floor, but likes it better in her crib. I put her on her stomach and she pushed herself up on her arms and then I think the weight of that big noggin just pulled her over to her back. The first time she did it, she looked up at me with a look of complete astonishment. I flipped her back to her stomach and she rolled right over to her back. I took her downstairs and tried to film her rolling over, but she was too speedy for me. I couldn't put her down and pick up the camera before she would already be on her back. We'll have to try it this weekend when we have 4 hands instead of my 2.

She seems like a different little girl this week. She actually likes to sit by herself in things when she's awake - and she let me get my hair cut yesterday sitting like an angel for two hours in her carseat. Before long, I'll be talking about her crawling and walking, but for now, I think it's pretty neat to watch her roll over.

Big Girl

When Claire went to the doctor for her 2-month checkup, we found out that she's 9 lbs 12 oz... we knew that she was getting bigger since some of her clothes were getting a little snug, but it was good to hear the "official" news.

Visitors from Wisconsin

This past weekend, Claire's cousins, Hannah and Giselle came for a visit. We all had fun (and it was nice to see Kurt and Jennie too!).
