Despite Rumors to the Contrary

She really does have hair! It's so light and fine... sometimes it doesn't seem like Claire has too much hair. But really, when you gather it all up into a cute little pony you can see exactly how much hair the little one has developed in the past year.

Go Cubs Go!


In honor of today's home opener against our friendly neighbors from north of the border, Claire picked out her clothes so that everyone would know her true colors - Cubby Blue! Today was a banner day for Claire, a Cubs win and an orange popsicle to celebrate!

Happy Easter!

The Egg Hunt

Claire had an exciting day! She really got the hang of the egg hunting... though in her typical hoarder fashion, she wouldn't put the eggs in a bag to carry, nor would she allow anyone to help her.
