momma and claire



I will stand by you
I will help you through
When you’ve done all you can do
If you can’t cope
I will dry your eyes
I will fight your fight
I will hold you tight
And I wont let go

Family Day


We don't get too many family days together...so when we had a chance this weekend we took advantage of the photo opportunities.




Truly a momma's girl

Christening


This past weekend we were honored to give Claire back to Jesus as she was baptised in his name.


We were so happy to have the pastor who married us baptize our little princess.

Mom's Christening Gown


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.

Baby Doll


We recently had Claire's photos done by a friend, and she was a perfect angel! She sat pretty and smiled for over 2 hours.
More photos from this session to come.

Raspberry Attempt

video
Claire has been trying and trying to mimic raspberries...this was the closest she had ever gotten. Now she is a pro.

Splish Splash

This was our first attempt in the "big tub", and Claire learned how to make a wet mess very quickly...

Apples....yuck?

Cousin play date


We had cousins Liam and Lillie over for a play date! We had a tea party, ate dinner, then all 3 kids decided to melt down.
At that point it was adult play date, and the wine came out. :o)



Liam helping Lillie onto the chair...what a nice brother he is.

Pretty Princess


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.

Bunny girl

I got these ears for Easter, and I love them so much that we put them on almost every day for a photo op. We're ready for Easter!

Raspberries

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/
