Dining Out

We ate dinner at a restaurant tonight and Claire REALLY enjoyed her cookie...


She only has two teeth but makes very good use of them. She has been eating all sorts of finger foods lately, such as puffs, wagon wheels, teething cookies, and diced veggies and fruit. She prefers to feed herself rather than letting us feed her with a spoon, so we have to sneak in spoonfuls in between the bites she feeds herself.

Exploring

Claire has had no problems adjusting to her new surroundings. She was scared by the house when it was empty and echoed, but now that our furniture is in here she likes it just fine.

She has been sleeping well in her crib/room and only woke up ONE time last night...


She has explored EVERY square inch of the living room...


And she figured out how to climb up stairs (but not back down again). We installed some heavy-duty baby gates to keep her away from those for a while...


When she's not exploring, she takes time out of her busy schedule to help me with household chores...

New House

After spending five months (half Claire's life!) in a one-bedroom apartment, we were finally able to move into a house this weekend! Claire now has her own room and is able to sleep in her big-girl crib rather than the pack 'n play. She also has several "new" toys that got packed up this fall since she was too small to play with them. Her favorite is the Tap-a-Tune Piano, which she has been banging/climbing on all weekend. I have started calling her Schroeder.

Moving In...

Shopping at Home Depot...

Claire also turned 10 months old today. I can't believe she is so close to being a year old! Pretty soon I'm going to have to change the name of this blog from Baby Claire to Toddler Claire.
