The Great Houdini

Just a story for you today - though I wish I had thought to take a picture. When Claire wakes up in the morning, she's normally a very happy girl. She usually lays in her crib and talks to herself (at increasing volumes) until I go in and get her. Today, the volumes increased rapidly and when I went in to get her, I could see why - she was cold! She had somehow wriggled out of her Swaddleme and her pjs. She was laying in nothing but her diaper (fortunately, she didn't figure out how to get out of that). I would have loved some time-lapse photos of Claire figuring out how to free herself of the straitjacket that is her Swaddleme and jammies. I'm sure this is just the first of many acts of mischief I will report.

Girl in Pink Hats

Anyone wonder what Jeff would look like in a pink hat? Wonder no more.

5 Months Old (Tomorrow)

How can you not love that face? This was the smile I got when we put her in her high chair for the first time - she just knew that something good was about to happen. She seemed to really like eating rice cereal. She was fascinated with the little spoon - watched it from the moment it left her mouth to the moment it returned. Her little tongue was very busy flicking in and out of her mouth like a snake to make sure that all of the cereal on her face ended up in her mouth.

So far, she's proving to be a good eater - we'll have to see what happens when she gets to eat green beans.

Warning: Do Not Try This At Home

Look what Claire can do! She's giving us loud signs that she's ready for solids - she's eating her toes.
