Loving All the Captions

I'll set up a vote to figure out the winner Wednesday. Get your captions in by then. I have a few favorites, but I don't want to sway anybody :-)

In other news, Claire rolled over Sunday night! I've been trying since then to capture it on video...but she hasn't done it since.

Happy captioning!

Caption This Photo Game

This should keep the content fresh over the next few days :-)

Let's play a game. Best caption gets a cute prize made by Claire. Hint - since she doesn't know how to write, draw or paint it's probably going to be a cute watercolor print of her hands or feet. I can't wait to see what you creative people come up with for this photo...I'll work on the prize, you work on the caption.

Escape from Playmat Island

Free at Last

Here I have documented Claire's tummy inchworm technique. I've seen her do this on her back, but this was the first getaway attempt on her belly. Click on the pictures if you want to see a larger version of the series below.

Jumping for Joy

Warning...very silly picture...it might make you laugh:

There is a new chapter in Claire's bouncing adventures. The jumpster has been relocated upstairs where we actually have moldings in the doorways. Claire now has a freestanding jumperoo downstairs which I can move around for when I'm cooking or doing things around the house.

Speaking of cooking, if I'm not doing anything too dangerous (like frying...don't want hot oil splashing the baby) Claire seems to enjoy talking to the vegetables I'm chopping. I put in the bjorn facing out and she has a front row seat to the show. Someday soon her chore will be cooking US dinner...or at least emptying the dishwasher.

Claire is One Year Old!

Well, sort of! I can't believe it's been a year since we found out we were pregnant. I think Claire's changed quite a bit since then and she's certainly more photogenic. So here's a blast from the past - one of our first ultrasound images where Claire (then known as "bean") measured a whopping 13 mm (half an inch).

These are the ultrasound images we used to surprise the Grealis and Seamon clans with our news. We wrapped them up with a ribbon and put them on dinner plates.

My how she's grown!

Oh! My Toes!

I'm so bummmed that the camera I was using to record these videos didn't have sound capailities :-( I'll have to narrate. "Eeeee! Ahhhh! EEEEE!" Claire has really discovered her vocal cords and seems to "sing" the most when grabbing either her toes or her tongue. That's right...her tongue.

Those hands in her mouth have finally discovered what they've been searching for - the elusive slime snake that lives in her oral cavity. It's hysterical to listen to the sounds she makes while grabbing at her tongue.

Sorry about the lack of sound, you'll just have to enjoy Claire's silent smiles as she delights in her toes and tummy time.

Claire & Bear

One of Dan's co-workers bought Claire this cute bear "rug." Here she is (in between nibbles) while I was putting clothes away in her room.
