Half Birthday!

Her first time sitting up in a cart...at Bob's Red Mill. She was adored by the masses.
Having fun hanging with Auntie Amy and Uncle Erik

she is just so big now!

plethora of snot bubbles. I failed to capture the moment she had a giant bubble coming out of each nostrile, simultaneously.

Recent developments:
* her first tooth (foremost, right incisor on the bottom gum) is movin' on in!
* she has sat up all by herself for more than 5 minutes at a time.
* we've finally moved from rice cereal to banana to applesauce to sweet potato....loves eating from a spoon and so far her favorite seems to be rice cereal. She makes the icky face with all the others.
* she got her first, full-blown cold....it's been rough. she hates it when I suction her nose 50 million times a day. but seriously, she is a snot/drool factory.

* 98th %ile for height (27 3/4"), 46th %ile for weight (15 lbs 11.5 oz), 68th %ile for head circumference (43 cm)

* she's awesome...oh wait, that's not RECENT! That's applied since she was conceived

* her mommy and daddy are WAY wrapped around all of her little fingers...moreso every day.
* she spits up WAY less...thinking about trying her old formula again to see if she can handle it now
* I think her favorite activity is bounding around like CRAZY in her doorway bounce (Thanks, Auntie Kate!)

* she's getting over her stranger anxiety but it still crops up every now and then
* she sleeps through the night (7:30pm-6:30 or 7:00am) usually

* she's trying to crawl, but it looks pretty weird right now. usually ends up on her tip toes with her butt straight up in the air and her face flat on the ground. though, she has gotten on her knees a couple of times.

Claire, cracking up.
