Klaire ~ 5 months

Really? Already? At 5 mths. our sweet Klaire is sitting up by herself. She is now taking 5 oz. at a time and eating all kinds of baby food plus cereal. She is very vocal and has starting getting better and better every day!!! I can finally see a light at the end of this "colic" tunnel, lol! She is still not sleeping through the night, in fact she usually gets up twice a night still. Usually only once to nurse though. She has only slept one night through the night so far. She is doing really well at daycare,which makes the transition for us all soooo much better. She is still squeezing in size 2 diapers, tho no much longer. She is wearing 6-9 mths, sometimes bigger even though she is still tiny. She is one of the tiniest in her class even though she is the second oldest. She is therefore proving again that she is nothing like my boys. She still has her beautiful blue eyes, so who knows if they will change or not. She is a joy and is getting more fun every day. She loves her big brothers and they can just look at her and she has a huge grin on her sweet face. We love to hear her laugh, she is quite ticklish!

Dad's 60th

Today was dad's 60th birthday! We celebrated after church with cake, ice cream, & gifts! Kylan wanted to find his Papaw something so bad. He found a snowman at my mom's in her "gift" closet and worked so hard to wrap it. He then changed his mind and I told him I had some razorback playing cards in my gift drawer so he decided to give him those instead. He was so worried about finding something that his Papar would like. I told him that anything would be special. He found a gift sack for the cards, and then decided to give him the snowman too. My sweet boy is precious! Happy Birthday daddy! We love you more than you could every imagine. You mean the world to us and we would be lost without you!!!

Klaire's first pageant

Klaire was in her first pageant!!! It was a fun experience. There were 6 babies in her group. The range was 0-15 mths. Out of the 6, the ones that placed were the ones who could walk. I had heard that they never let the itty bitty ones place, but it was still a neat thing. I look forward to all of the mother/daughter things that I can now experience. Klaire slept through almost the whole pageant. She was still Queen in my eyes! :)

Klaire's first Veggie

We have started Klaire on 1st baby foods. She has tried squash, peas, applesauce, bananas, and pears. She has loved them all so far. (And isn't nearly as messy as the first time, lol!) Her doc. really didn't want us starting them yet, but she showed all but one sign that she was ready. The sign that she didn't show was weight. She eats a jar of fruit a day and half a jar of veggies.

Klaire's 4 mth check-up

Today was Klaire's 4 month check-up! Again, I say WOW!!! Some things for me to remember.....she is wearing size 2 diapers, and eating rice cereal almost every night. She is also rolling over like crazy from belly to back. She has rolled over once from back to belly. She now sucks her thumb quite a bit as well. She is 14 lbs. 1 oz., and is 24 in. long. She also received 3 shots, and one oral dose of her immunizations today. She is still taking 4 oz. (I am guessing)! She is still not sleeping through the night. Usually she will go 4 hrs. then nurse every 3 during night and throughout the rest of the day. She loves to squeal and laughs at her brothers all of the time. She is on reflux medicine again after me trying to wean her from it. She is getting better, but still a little on the colicky end. Girly likes to catnap still. Usually no nap last longer than 35 minutes. She is growing like crazy and I am going to miss being with her every day when I start work soon!!!
