Jumping Bean

This weekend we got Claire a doorway jumper. It has some toys on it that light up and play music. She is fascinated by these and has played with them for the past few days.


But then this morning she realized that she could JUMP! She jumped for thirty minutes straight and had a great time.



I walked away for a minute and came back to find her completely zonked. All that jumping wears a girl out!

7 Months Old

Claire is 7 months old! They weighed her last week when she got her RSV shot and she was 14 lbs 8 oz. She is becoming a chunky little monkey! She is also getting long and outgrowing her pants and footie pajamas.

She has been eating all sorts of solid foods this past month. Right now she likes veggies a lot better than fruits (she didn't get that from me!) Her favorite foods are rice cereal, green beans, carrots, and squash. I let her try drinking from a sippy cup for the first time yesterday -- she grabbed the handles and put the spout in her mouth all by herself and started drinking like a champ. No teeth have appeared yet, but everyone tells me they think she is definitely teething.


We made two trips down to Birmingham for Christmas and New Years, three hours each way. Claire was a very good traveler. She snoozed most of the way in her carseat, and when she was awake she would "talk" to us and play with her toys. She and I are going back down there next month for follow-up appointments at Children's.
