Her first bottom tooth made its debut about a week and half ago. She's totally obsessed with this new fixture in her mouth and keeps her tongue right on it. I had her monthly pics made on Saturday, and in every pic, her tongue is right on that tooth! This whole teething thing has not been fun! Grant had teeth we never even knew were coming in, but this girl is a drama queen. Last week was awful. We went 4 nights with almost no sleep, and while the last few nights have been better, they haven't been great. She's waking 3-4 times per night! She's started wanting to eat again 2x's at night, which she hasn't done since she was newborn! It's exhausting, so I'm hoping it ends very very soon! Each time a write a post about her sleeping habits, she totally changes them, so maybe this will be good luck!
Grant and Claire are playing better now. They always want the same toys..go figure! She loves going in brother's room and pulling stuff out. I never imagined a baby could make such a mess so quickly, but this one can! I think she tries to irritate him already, which cracks me up! She grabs his cups every time she sees him with one. I bought her a few new ones and she's doing great with them. She just sucks the water right out. She can even drink out of a straw, which I thought was pretty impressive. I'm pretty sure Grant was over 1 before he mastered that. Claire is just changing so so fast! I feel like she'll be walking around in no time. I cannot believe how fast 7 months has gone by. This is a really fun stage, but it will be SOOOO much better if she ever starts sleeping!!
In other news....We celebrated our 4th anniversary on Thursday, 8-7. The intentions were there to do a special post, but it didn't happen! Maybe next year, haha! The below pic is not from our anniversary, but from my birthday. I just have to post it because I think it's hilarious! This is so us!
My new job is keeping me busy, hence the lack of posts. It's good, just a busier day. I'm going to try to do at least one post a week, but we'll see!
**Updated 8/11/08 afternoon**After over a week with no sleep, I decided to take Claire to the dr. this morning because she's just not right..not sleeping AT ALL, not really eating her food, and just fussy, fussy! Well, it's not without a reason. Both of her ears are infected. Now I feel bad for waiting so long, but she's had a cold (and so do I) and she's teething, so I just figured I'd be wasting my $20. The one time I try and wait it out, and she really is sick...go figure! Hopefully, she'll be back to her cheery self in a day or two!
