Here is what she is up to:-
Crawling, climbing, wanting to stand. This girl is all over the place! She has even started climbing stairs, MUCH to my dismay! This behavior is absolutely NOT encouraged in our house, but it is happening nevertheless.
Mommy's Girl: When I say she is all over the place, what I really mean is: Wherever I am, Claire is right there beside me! I absolutely do NOT have to worry about whether or not this girl loves her mommy, because she LOVES her mommy! Which is just fine, because I sure love her too!
Weight: 15.2, with a diaper on. We need to fatten this girl up!
Eating: In the last week she has really started eating a variety of foods (finally!). Her favorite is still- by far- mangoes, but now she also likes: yams, avocados, and Cheerios. I am starting to introduce her to a new food every few days, so next month she will have a full menu of food choices.
Sleeping: AWESOME! (That does not mean I am getting much sleep, however. Lately Audra has been keeping me up at night, but that is another post entirely). She is still a horrible napper- taking two 30-60 minute naps a day. Once in awhile she will nap for longer periods, but ONLY when I am gone running errands and daddy is in charge. How on earth does it work out that way? At any rate, I am just glad that she is sleeping through the night without any problems. She is incredibly easy to put down to sleep- literally just feed her and put her in her crib. The only problem is that she wakes up early- about 6:30- but I guess it is worth it for a full nights sleep.
Talking: Ben insists that she said "da-da" on Sunday but I refuse to agree.
General well-being: she is still a happy and fun baby, and as cute as can be!
