6 Months Old!!

Claire is 6 months old and she is growing so quickly! She is 18 lbs 8 oz and 28.5 inches long. Here are some updates and pictures of new things going on with our little Claire Bear...

We went to a wedding in Columbus

She was too long for her carseat, so we bought a comfy infant seat for her

She is sitting up by herself

She likes to play with her crawl ball

Her pooping face

What a relief :)

Trying to give daddy a hug

Daddy did her hair

Such a pretty girl

Claire the giraffe (just for Grandma Carroll)

Thanks for the cute overalls, Oma

Smile, smile, smile

Her favorite new blue cup

Trying to learn to drink from a sippy cup

Such a happy little girl

She likes sleeping on her tummy with her butt up

She does not like being woken up

Mommy and Claire Bear

Her TWO bottom front teeth have cut through

The new style - skirt on your head

She likes pulling her socks off

Such a big girl

Tummy time with daddy

Precious little smile

She still likes swinging at the park

She walks with some assistance

Anxiously awaiting her bath
Thanks for checking up on us! Her professional 6 month photos will be uploaded soon!

Day at the Zoo

Today was the "Walk for Babies" which is a fundraising event for the NICU that I work in. We were blessed to have many sponsors and also fortunate to have Pete's mom and grandparents available to join us. Our team name was the "Wee Walkers" and I think our fundraising totals ended up in 7th place - thanks again to all who donated! This event was held at the Akron Zoo and here are some pictures from our day...

Spent some quality time with Uncle Keith

Played some corn hole

Jackson and Claire entertained themselves while the rest of us played beach volleyball

And we all shared some good laughs!
