Claire had her one month check up today, although she is a little older than one month. She is gaining weight and is now 9 lb 1 oz. She takes after her father with her height, she is now 22 1/4 inches, which is in the 75th percentile - she certainly doesn''t get that from me!
Claire has started smiling at us, which is awesome. She is also starting to make adorable noises. Overall, she is a really good baby except for a few hours at night when she gets fussy - usually from 7 to 9. However, we might have solved that by introducing the pacifier. We held out for a while, but she is at the point now where she will find her thumb if we don''t give her the pacifier. We only give it to her when she is really fussy. Her sleeping patterns haven''t changed, still sleeping from about 11:30 to 6 and then goes back to sleep for a few hours. :-)
Claire is going to be quite the traveler - are you surprised? We have been to Massachusetts twice, we head to Vermont next Wednesday and her first plan ride will be heading to South Carolina on August 26th. We are looking forward to our trips and visits with family and friends!
