Claire got her monthly RSV shot today. Actually she had to get two shots this time because the dosage is based on her weight and goes up every time. They can't inject the whole dose into one leg anymore because her little muscle can't hold that much, so they have to split the dose in half and give a shot in each leg. She cried and cried. But I am thankful that she is getting these shots. I know of several kids who have caught RSV/bronchiolitis this winter and had to be hospitalized or given breathing treatments. At least that's one less thing for me to worry about.
Claire is getting more mobile everyday. She hasn't figured out how to crawl yet -- her preferred method of travel is still rolling. James calls her "tumbleweed" because she rolls across the room and picks up toys as she goes. I have started childproofing the apartment.
The exersaucer and doorway jumper have helped her to get a lot stronger. She is able to stand up and can sit unsuppported for a few seconds. She shows off her new skills to her daddy every night after dinner. The picture below looks like he is teaching her to water ski.
Claire has also gotten quite a bit rougher with her toys, but it's nothing a little duct tape won't fix.
