It''s been too long since I updated - time to get an update in before Christmas is here! Our little Claire is getting so big. She loves to talk all the time and jabbers away. Her vocabulary is getting bigger every day but my favorite word of hers is yellow. It takes so much effort for her to get that word out, but it sounds sooooo cute when she says it. She finally says a version of I love you, which makes me smile.
Claire was sick for the first time a few weeks ago. Dan has gone to a concert and I was asleep on the couch when he came home (shocking, I know!). I heard Claire moving around and I thought he woke her up, but he quickly called me into her room where he was standing covered in puke. I felt bad, but had to laugh at the same time. Can you believe that was the first time she was ever sick? She got sick once more that night but after getting back to sleep around 2 she slept through the night and felt and acted fine the next morning. Must have been something she ate. For the last week Claire has been teething horribly!! She is uncomfortable, has bad diarrhea which lead to a horrible diaper rash. It was so bad I debated taking her to the doctor but opted against it since we are going Wednesday anyways.
Claire has done much better with the Christmas tree than I anticipated. At first she was scared of it, but got a little more comfortable once the lights went on. Now it is fully decorated (twice since it fell over last week) and she is OK with it. The only she is interested in are two separate Santa ornaments. It is strange, but she only touch those two ornaments and leaves everything else alone. We haven''t taken her to see Santa yet, but we might head out this weekend. That''s about it for now, I will update her stats after our appointment Wednesday night.
Thanks for checking in!
