Summer Fun





Today's a beautiful day. We took Claire outside to play in her pool. She thought it was fun... but kept trying to drink the water sprinkles.

Claire's Role Models


Claire spends alot of time with her cousins... I'm hoping they're influencing her sports affiliation.

Happy Father's Day




There's something about little girls with their dads...they all seem to get whatever they want!

Happy Father's Day.

Busy Day

Today was seemingly the first nice day in a month and we tried to take full advantage of it. First we went to the zoo where Claire was more interested in looking at the people who were looking at the animals. Then, we played in the yard with bubbles. Claire really liked the bubbles - she kept repeating "Bubba, bubba" when Jeff was blowing them at her.

Birthday Party

Claire's Birthday Party was Saturday. She had lots of fun. First, we opened presents.

Then, we sang "Happy Birthday".

Claire got her second try at a cupcake. "Try" is really underselling it - she devoured it!

Claire was outside today playing on one of her gifts - a picnic table that Jeff's brother had made.

It was a very big weekend for Claire. On top of her birthday party on Saturday, she went to the doctor on Friday for her one year checkup. She's doing really well - 18 lbs 5 oz (10th percentile), 28 3/4 inches (25th percentile), and 18 inches head circumference (90th percentile). I'd like to see the babies in the 90th percentile for weight... do you think they have 10th percentile heads? In any case, the doctor gave Claire the green light for all kinds of new things to eat... but she has to wait a little while longer before we can turn her car seat around.

All in all, we had a great weekend and hope you all did too!

One Year Ago Today

Amazing that a year has gone by... Claire has changed so much in the past year.

Tonight we had a little celebration for Claire's birthday. She got to taste a cupcake for the first time.

She wasn't so sure what to do at first, but then she caught on.

And, by the end, the cupcake disappeared, and Claire was quite proud of herself about it.

Happy Birthday, Sweetie!
