on the mini ferris wheel
riding his pony, Midnight
This was actually his 2nd trip of the week to the fair, but I didn't go the first time, so no pictures were taken. Claire went with us, but she just watched everyone until around 8 when she had a breakdown and forced us out the gates.
This picture of Claire and Grant is the first time that I've put Claire in the grass. She may have been in it before, but I hadn't ever seen it. She wasn't as puzzled by it as I thought she'd be, but she did just stay put which isn't normal at all. This is a miracle shot since they're both somewhat smiling and looking at the camera.
One of Claire's new favorite toys is the Pooh airplane. Grant got this from mammy his first Christmas, and we literally just put it up right before Claire was born. We got it back down a few weeks ago for her, and she loves it too. I strongly recommend this toy to anyone with little ones. I haven't seen a Pooh one in a while, but there is a Mickey Mouse one that is very similar.
Claire's name painting came in, and she is very proud of it as you can see!!
One embarrassing moment to record...I mentioned in Claire's 7 month post that she had a double ear infection. As a result of being on antibiotics, she ended up with a yeast infection. Her dr. said just to get her some Monistat. That is not something I would normally run to the store to get, but when you think your child may be uncomfortable you don't think twice. So, I ran down to the local Walgreen's and as I'm trying to figure out exactly what I'm supposed to be buying, I look over and see our preaching minister like 10 feet from me. Normally, that would be someone I would definitely say hello to, but how do you explain that you're buying yeast medication for you baby? I wasn't sure he'd understand, so I did what anyone would do. I turned my back and did my best to avoid and remain anonymous. My plans to check out in the pharmacy changed and I went, quickly, to the front of the store. It really wasn't that big of a deal, but I'm certain I would've made a lame attempt to explain my purchase which could have ended in even more embarrassment.
