5 months

Clara is growing and getting bigger each day. Here's a list of some of the new things she can do now:
*Eat rice cereal every night
*Roll over
*Take 3 long naps during the day and sleep almost 12 hours at night (thanks to Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child by: Marc Weissbluth, M.D.)
*Make kissing sounds and say "da da da da"
*Smile lots! :-)
This is my new favorite picture of Clara. She's our beautiful angel!
This is Clara's new favorite toy. She loves jumping and playing in this bouncer her friend Sadie loaned to her. Thanks Sadie, Sydney & Jeremy.

Holiday Pics #2

This is our first family photo with Santa. Luckily we didn't have to wait in any lines to see Santa this year. Tip: See Santa at Chick-Fil-A, not the mall. There was no wait and we had Santa all to ourselves for as long as we wanted. It was the best experience with Santa ever!
I have been running and exercising everyday for a few months now and I love it!! Clara is a real trooper to let me strap her into the jogging stroller and run each day.

Holiday Pics

We loved our trip to Michigan to visit Dan & Kelly's family. Thanksgiving was yummy and our visit was a blast! Here we are at Lake Michigan. It was a beautiful day. We hiked about a mile to reach this breath-taking view at the beach.

Uncle Edward was pleased to meet little Clara for the first time! Uncle Edward is Clara's great, great uncle.
We also had a wonderful Christmas! Pat, Shala, Brenn, Darren, Sarah & their family came to Nashville to spend the holiday. We had a fun time with them in town. This is at one of our favorite restaurants, Cheddars.
Brenn was so sweet to Clara. They had fun playing together.
