Waiting for Baby Justice...

Well, it's time to play a little catch-up again. We still don't have our computer back so I've been delayed in posting photos, but here are some of the latest. Claire has been growing and developing so quickly. She is clapping, waving, scooting and even crawling now. Here she is on all fours...



We got to see Aunt Jeni for a little while this weekend when we went to GA for Jared and Bonnie's baby shower....



And here is the happy mom and dad to be! We can't wait to see Baby Justice, who will be here sometime within the next two months! We are so excited that Claire and Justice will be so close in age. We hope that they will be great friends as well as cousins!


Here is Claire entertaining the crowd! We were so happy to see Grandma and Rosebud at the shower!


Daddy's girl...


Claire had a good time exploring during the shower.


But all the excitement wore her out!



Here are a few more pictures to make you smile. The many expressions of Claire...



What a pitiful face! Too bad she's cute even when she is crying! :)

She's Got Skills...

Well, I have so much to post but we've been without internet for the past week, since our router and modem got fried by lightening! All of my pictures are saved on our desktop, so they'll have to wait...but I did upload some fun videos onto the laptop, so here they are!

It's been a big week for Claire! Here she is, right after she learned how to clap...

And here is Claire at "bedtime." Yeah right.

And finally, here she is practicing her new skill of coming up on all fours. An hour and a half past bedtime. Do you see a pattern?

Movie Time!!!

Well, I finally transferred some of our home videos onto the computer this morning, so I thought I'd share some of the latest...

This one is called "Open Wide" :)...

Here is Claire figuring out how to use her sippy cup...

Giggles on the swing with Mommy...

And this one is kind of hard to see, but it's precious. Here is Claire getting very excited about the puppets on her Baby Einstein movie...

In other news, Claire's first tooth popped through this weekend! And today is her seven-month birthday! My, how time flies...

Family-Style Weekend

We had a wonderful visit from part of Spencer's side of the family last weekend! Here are some moments from our visit...


Claire and her Grandad watched Papa and Spencer playing basketball...


Spencer and his cousin Jake built a bridge across the creek behind our house. Here is Jacob balancing on their handiwork!

Claire loved being held by everyone...Here she is with cousin Deb...



...Aunt Joan...


...and Nanny Faye!



On Saturday we had eleven people total at our house!!! Now, if you've seen our house, you would know that eleven people just don't fit, so we spent most of the day outdoors. Here are a few more memories...

Papa and Jake on the back porch swing...


Uncle Ralph rocking by the creek...


Spencer and Papa having a "serious" conversation...


Claire and Grandad playing on the floor...


Claire eating Papa's shoe...

...and Papa and Nanny Faye sitting on the steps!

Beach Time



We took Claire on her first trip to the beach last week! Grankay and Pawpaw took us on vacation to Amelia Island in Florida. On the way down, we stopped at a friend's house and played outside...



Amelia Island was beautiful! The condo we stayed in was close to the beach, to the pool, and to the fishing pier. Here is Claire having her first experience in the ocean...

And here she is in the pool...

Claire really seemed to love being in the pool. She was quite content to hang out in her float, kick her legs, and watch all the other kids in the water.

We found other things to do as well...like playing in a basket...


Going on a wagon ride...

And playing with Uncle Travis' hat...


Claire loved playing with Grankay and Pawpaw...


And here are just a couple more pictures from the weekend...


I'll be back soon to finish catching up!!!
