Wow, how time flies. On the 9th we celebrated Claire's 6 month birthday - a huge milestone. At half a year old she seems so big, and yet so small at the same time. I took a bunch of pictures on her "birthday," many of them in her new sitting up pose. One of the things I've learned about 6 month old babies is that they are wiggly creatures by nature (that should explain why in some frames you only see a blur of happy baby chub).
Claire's newest tricks include:
- Screeching like a falcon which for some reason delights Dan, I on the other hand am suffering from deafness in my right ear.
- Pulling hair while in the backpack, I ALWAYS wear my hair in a bun now. I will NEVER make fun of women with the "mom cut" anymore, I know why they did it (although I'm not there myself yet :-)
- Sitting up - hooray
- Laughing, real honest to goodness laughter. Claire is now delighted by things around her, the cats, the boo-bah website (don't ask, poor Kelly - I introduced her kids too) and Peek-A-Boo.
