Another Milestone

Claire turned 4 months yesterday! I'll start with the fun stuff- here are some cute pics:I LOVE this picture of Ben and Claire! She really does love her daddy- often times he is the only one who can get her to calm down when she is crying. What a great dad!

She loves to stand, just like Audra did. They are so similar.
Daddy and Claire match!
Claire is still doing pretty well overall. We ended up putting her on Zantac for reflux and that has calmed her down. She is a really calm baby, but she was starting to be really fussy at night, and now we don't have that problem. However, she does always want to be held, including when she naps. I am sure it is because we have been doing so much attachment parenting. Some people may say we are "spoiling" her, and maybe we are. Sometimes I do find it annoying that she always wants to be held, but at the same time I love the closeness I have with her. I love having her sleep right next to me, even though I don't foresee her going into a crib anytime soon. But I also know that soon she will be running away from me, and I will miss this time and the bond that is between us. I can't even describe it. So, I guess I will just say that there are definite pros and cons, but for now this is working for us. And, in the end, aren't we all just doing the best we can?

We love you Claire!!!!


  1. Sooo cute! I know what you mean though about holding her all the time. Olivia is still in our room and I can't stand the thought of moving her to her own room just because I would miss her too much. Isn't that silly? I just try to enjoy each day as best I can cuz one day she'll be off on her own.

  2. I can't believe how fast time goes. It seems like you just had her. She is sure a cutie.
