Last year my mom made a baby girl christening gown and baby boy christening jumper made from her wedding dress. We are honored to have Claire wear it for her baptism. This beautiful dress will be kept in the family for future little girls on their baptism day.
Why does time seem to be flying by? Claire is already 7 months (by our weekly calculations) She weighed in at 15 pounds 13 ounces and 27 inches long. She is a good little sleeper, napping up to 4 hours a day and sleeping almost 9 hours straight at night, as long as the tooth fairy isn't in town helping her teeth breaking through another layer of gums. Sitting by herself, reaching for toys, playing peek-a-boo, and giving kisses are her new tricks...along with separation anxiety and stranger danger! I am sorry if Claire has cried when you held her, or looked at you like you have 3 heads. This stage will soon pass and she will be running and playing with everyone. I love this age and wish I could freeze these "firsts" moments forever.
Claire is a sponge these days! We have been trying to teach her raspberries, and she has been trying so hard to get them down! She still couldn't quite get it out in this photo, but today she can do them on cue. I will try to load some videos of her mimicing mommy, if blogger will let me. I have so many good videos, but for some reason the site is not working correctly... :o/
