New place to play

Under the glass coffee table of course!

Tumwater Falls

We made a stop at the falls before heading back up to Seattle the day after Christmas. Claire loved looking at the water.


Claire was thrilled to get a stocking from Santa
Filled with diapers - YUM!
Everyone knows that eating bows is the best part of  unwrapping presents!
It's exhausting being Santa's adorable little elf.

December Catch-Up

At the zoo. Claire wasn't interested in the camera that night.
Her 1st carousel ride. Claire wouldn't look because there were mirrors on the inside of the carousel that were just too interesting. Fun fact: The carousel at the Woodland Park Zoo originally belonged to the Cincinnati Zoo.
Graham cracker: Claire's favorite food!
Claire is getting really good at holding herself up and balancing. She can hold this pose for several minutes.
Finally big enough to ride in the cart and enjoying the new view!

Claire loves to read, but she was not in a very good mood yesterday.

A few others

Sneaky girl

I went to the bathroom before taking Claire out of her car seat after a walk. This is how I found her when I came out. She seems pleased.

Almost crawling

She can scoot backwards and roll every which way and she's got the crawling position down. We think she will be able to crawl forward within a few weeks.

A lot of pictures

I haven't been slacking off on taking pictures, just on uploading them. Here they are! (order is pretty much reversed)
Claire's face after eating butternut squash - her first successful food!

On the light rail headed home!
Ready for her 6th airplane ride. She's becoming pro.
Playing with Baby Owen. They had the same due date. Claire might have tried to take out his eyes a few times.

Claire and Levi trying to Skype with Baby Grant. Unfortunately they were more interested in Levi's pacifier.

Playing with Baby Levi. He really like her pretty hair. He is 2 months older than Claire but is quite the chunk!

With her great grandma Fred
Playing with her 2nd cousin Marleigh, who is 9 days older than her.
Zonked out at church

In her corn cob Halloween costume. We were farmers.
