Rolly Polly and Chatter box

The title says it all. Claire has a new trick and loves to talk. She started to roll over some last night, but I thought it was an accident. Then this morning at Stroller Strides she was doing it again. I am just happy that I was able to get it on video for her daddy. He's gonna love this!
I'm so glad that I have such a happy baby! She really only cries when she is wet and/or "starving". I hope she stays this happy, especially when she hits the "terrible twos" stage. Wishful thinking, I'm sure.

Beach and Zoo pictures

Two monkeys sleeping at the zoo. Wonder who is more comfy? We can't wait for daddy to be home, so we can show him ALL the animals.

This is at North Shore. We found some shade under a palm tree. She had a blast. She is a regular Beach Bum! Her daddy would be proud.

Girls Gone Wild

Claire and I had some visitors this past week. My cousin Lindsey and her friend Kelly came for a visit. We had so much fun in such a short time. Every day was a new adventure for Claire. We took the girls to Barbers' Point and set Claire up in her new Cabana. She loved it!
We also took them to a Luau. Claire was the talk of the place. She was happy to show off her Hula Girl outfit. Yes, I did try to get her a job while we were there. Sadly, they said she was too cute for the show. Lindsey and Kelly had a great time, and enjoyed the food and drinks.
Claire and I had so much fun! Its always nice to have family come and visit. And of course its always nice to have a little help with Claire-McBear. I'm hoping that Lindsey and Kelly had as much fun as Claire and I did. I know that Claire will miss her "back seat buddies".

I laid Claire down, thinking she was asleep, so that I could get a quick shower. I had the monitor in my bathroom and I could hear her "talking", so I thought I would sneak a peak. She has been "talking" nonstop since. She definitely gets that from me :o)

More Easter Fun

Claire and I dyed some eggs. We each have one with our names on them, its kind of hard to see CoCo's but she has one too. Claire is still learning to control her head, but she LOVES being able to see what's going on. We did have fun with the eggs, but we did miss daddy. I think he could have made some more creative eggs.
Sadly though, I forgot to put the eggs in the refridge after they dried, so I don't get any egg salad this year :o( That is what mommy-hood does to you, makes you forget things. All in all it was a good Easter. We went to Mass and Claire was good, slept through most of it. Then we enjoyed a nice relaxing day at home, full of napping, sewing and doing laundry.

Easter Morning

Happy Easter! The Bunny made it to our house, and left some really cute things for Miss Claire.

Easter Fun

Here is some video footage of Claire dying Easter Eggs. I think she had fun, however, next year will be much entertaining for all of us. I also added a video of Claire sitting in her Bumbo seat. She is starting to get used to it. I think she likes being able to see everything around her now :o)
