7 Months Old!

Clara is 7 months old today!

She has 4 teeth, and an additional THREE teeth that I've noticed are just barely poking through.  She is a toothy girl!  We are both in pain because of it but she is slowly getting the hang of her new chompers and it isn't affecting her nights' sleep.

Grace does a fantastic job playing with Clara.  She loves to zoom her vehicles around her.  They both enjoy it when Clara is covered in a blanket and Grace runs over and rips it off and shouts "Peekaboo!"  Sometimes Grace will hide in a closet or behind the coffee table and surprise her from there.  It s a joy to watch, and Grace will do it over and over!  I think Grace is really enjoying having a playmate.  Sometimes, Grace will even ask to wake Clara up when she is napping so they can play together!

A few times I've noticed Clara saying "Gay" very clearly.  I like to think that she is trying to say Grace.  I've noticed it in particular after Grace leaves the room and Clara is looking around for her.  It is hard to know if this is what she is trying to say, but I wouldn't be surprised if she says Grace before she says Momma!  She also says "Dadadadadada."

Clara still has a bit of a goopy eye.  We've been medicating it and it is getting a lot better, but you may notice that she squints slightly.  We hope it clears up soon.  Grace had the same problem so we aren't too worried about it.

Happy New Year to you all!


  1. I love the look of joy on both your faces! That's so special!

  2. That really is a beautiful picture of you two. :)
