Stranger Danger

Claire had her six months appointment today and was not happy about it. Our usual happy go lucky, smiley baby went nuts at the doctor. Well nuts is probably strong but she did not enjoy her visit like she has in the past. Her antics were probably a normal day for most but our babe is so chill and roll with it that we were taken aback. She cried on the scale and the sight of the really nice nurse. She wasn’t crazy about nice Dr. McClain (although she doesn’t seem to like bearded men these days). She of course cried during her shots – heartbreaking. But the whole ordeal was evidently exhausting for her (was for us) and she passed out for a while. Poor sweet little baby. But otherwise she is doing great. She is 18 pounds on the dot and 26 inches long. We will expand her foods more and she gets to start trying to drink out of a cup. It is amazing what all she has accomplished in six months. In the last six months I have pretty much had a baby (that was pretty big, literally), lost most of the baby weight, tried to catch up on sleep, and crashed my car (see the last post – I was just in the way of a 18 year old who stole a car, didn’t have insurance and decided he didn’t need to stop going 45 mph at the red light). I've kind of been a lump on a log compared to what Claire has done.

I would post a "6 month picture" of Claire but my SD card decided to be corrupt. This is the second disk this has happened to. ARGH!
