What the heck have I been up to the past 2+ weeks? I wish I could remember! Hmmm. Well, my sister in law, Amy, just gave birth to her and Erik's beautiful little William on Tuesday, October 28th. And let me tell you, he is ITTY BITTY! Such a mess of wild black hair too! We are so glad to welcome him into this world! Claire now officially has two boy cousins...Chris' sisters had the boys and he had the girl!
(Claire is so big next to her new cousin, William! He's 6 pounds 3.8 oz!)
(Auntie Kate with her little Jude and cousin William!)
We also got to see her Grandma and Grandpa Stoner as well as her Great Aunt/Uncle Wanda and Paul, Ron and Norma, Jim, Joyce and Jim, Great Grandma Woodward and the lovely couple (Lois and Charles) that actually matched my parents up more than 40 years ago! While my parents were in town we had a little surprise party for their 40th anniversary at Stanfords. It was a blast!
It's so fun watching Claire grow. She loves to talk, squeal, blow bubbles,drool all over herself, suck wildly on her fists, play with her links and her little toys that crinkle, get frustrated and cry when she can't grasp things like she would like to, sit up and look around, sleep in her own crib in her own room, smile like there's no tomorrow, take better and better naps, relax in her plush and luxurious swing and stare in wonder at the world around her.
