10 months old

Today Claire is 10 months old. I really don't have any new pictures b/c

1)My camera bites....evidence below
2)My camera bites
3)I did my own little bloggy makeover

I do love love love this picture. Now I just have to fix the lighting and such(ummm Dad...can you do that for me?)
At 10 months old Claire
1)Has 5 teeth, with 3 more coming in
2)eats by the fistful
3)is getting into everything
4)will probably say "no ma'am" as her first expression
5)has stolen her parents hearts like you wouldn't believe

At 10 months old Mommy has learned
1)if you put up a gate, you will fall over it in the middle of the night
2)if you feed your daughter tons of crap...she will cr....well you get the picture
3)When said daughter is sleeping...mommy should be sleeping(still learning this one)
4)No bibs should ever be white....ever..what's the point
5)there is no distinguishing between baby toys and dogs toys...just stop trying

promise more pictures

I love the new look for the blog! Tripping over gates - welcome! I've done that more times than I can count (and I still do it almost 7 years later!)
Miranda has the same activity table :)

I love, love, love the dress she has on. You dress her so pretty!
Thanks for sharing.

I love the new look of the bloggy Claredom.

You crack me up! I agree with the white bib thing-someone who is not a mommy made white bibs! Happy ten months little miss Claire!

Love the new look!

She is so beautiful! Your blog looks great too!

Funny how the camera that seemed okay pre child (ME TOO) becomes woefully inadequate once your child is home :)

You have a beautiful little girl. So glad to see you have kept your doggies after bringing her home. I hate to see people get rid of their dogs after they have kids. So sad.
