Claire loves giraffes

video

We went to the zoo the other day and here is a video of Claire showing us the giraffes, trying to take a picture of the giraffes herself, and then blowing the giraffes kisses.

Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle

video

Here is Claire doing a halfway performance of a Wiggle song on her favorite TV show, Yo Gabba Gabba. The song tells her to wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, then hold still. She is usually much more animated about it, but always gets camera shy...

Where are your cheekies?

Pete has taught Claire that when you ask "Where are your cheekies?" she points to her butt cheeks! ... Nice one! :)

May 2010

May was a very fun-filled month for us. Claire was involved in a soccer clinic at the YMCA and actually had a soccer game! Grace is reaching for toys and continues to roll from stomach to back and back to stomach. Our friend, Amber, came to visit and we went out for a Girl's Night Out which was very enjoyable! The girls just absolutely adore each other... when one walks into the room, the other one lights up. It is so fun to watch. Claire is always very concerned about Grace and what she is doing and you can tell that she is anxious for Grace to be able to be a play buddy to her. Here are some pictures from our month. (Sorry that some of these pictures uploaded sideways)
