8 months

Sorry for the absence lately. With photo shoots, unpacking, family, P90X (yes, holy crap), and Claire's 4th cold in a row... we've been busy!

She's 8 months! I can't believe she's coming up on a year. So crazy how fast time goes.

{Thank you for the adorable tutu Emily!}

New this month:
She's about 17 pounds and long.
And a standing machine!

(BTW, this is Ben's dad's house we're living in for a while)

She got her first 2 teeth!!

Ha, good thing it's just a freaky binky!!

Claire and her cousin Tyler. I wrote about Tyler a while ago - he was born at 25 weeks at 1 pound 13 ounces. Now he's 15 months old!

She doesn't love the walker for very long because she just wants to get around on her own. She is constantly keeping me on my toes!!

She'll be walking in no time.

She's found the bidet:

Don't worry, we don't use it.

She could eat Cheerios all day long.

Big this month: She sleeps 12 hours straight at night! Rarely do I have to even get out of bed these days (only when she's super sick or has thrown her binkies out of her crib). CIO (for 20 minutes twice) changed my life. We are all well-rested and doing great!

Poor baby just doesn't know what it's like to be healthy. But yet she's still SO happy! It seems that just as she's finally getting better, she suddenly wakes up with that runny/stuffy nose and cough. This time was worse than ever though. I just hate it!

She loves to eat and we call her "hoover" because she can down anything in a matter of seconds. I can put 20 cheerios out and they'll be gone in a blink. She likes to grab handfuls and shove them in her mouth. Just like her momma! She's loving everything we're eating too these days.

Still no teeth but I ain't complainin'!

She loves to play chase and tag and tickle monster.

Holy momma's girl. She's very attached to me right now. Still fine with new/other people, but just loves to know where I am at all times.

And here is what I've been working on, her 5-8 month video. Talk about cute. These videos make me cry every time.

Life with Claire just gets better and better. We are so happy!

Carly said...

Wow! I can't believe she's standing on her own! She's very advanced. :) Seriously.....there's no way Will could do that yet. Maybe he's too fat? She's a doll!

So what is CIO? You need to let a sleep deprived momma in on the secret!

What in the world?! Claire looks so grown-up, but how did she change so much in the few weeks since you guys have been gone?

Loved the latest pictures; the lighting in your new place is unreal!

We miss you punks! :)
