My First Birthday, Halloween and getting to meet my Great Granny

Wow, what a great few weeks. I had an awesome birthday. I had a sunflower birthday party. It was so much fun. I got to see all my family, plus several of my friends came. I got a cool playhouse and all kinds of cool presents. Mom and Dad can't believe I am already ONE!! They keep saying, "She is just growing up so fast." I don't really understand what that means, but ok.
My Nana made my Halloween costume this year. I was a very cute, girlie monkey, complete with faux eyelashes. We had a great Halloween. My friend Miley came to Trick-or-Treat with me. We had a great time. I still can't find my Halloween candy. I think my mom has eaten a lot of it.
I also got to travel up to Illinois to meet my Great Granny. It was an interesting plane ride as my mom and dad say. My ears hurt on the plane, so I was a bit unhappy. The flight attendants kept coming up to us asking if we needed anything. I just needed to be on the ground. We had a good flight back to ATL though. I slept the whole time. YEAH!! I love my Great Granny. She was really excited to me, plus I got to see my cousin Hudson too! Talk to you soon!!

Pumpkin Patch 2009

October has been a big month for me. I took my first steps on October 10th while watching the Tennessee Georgia football game. I just stood up and started walking. Mom and Dad were so proud. They gave me a big hug. The next day I walked 6 steps. Here is a picture of me at the Pumpkin Patch. We had lots of fun.

Summertime Fun!!

Hi Everyone! This summer has flown by! So, I went to kangazoom for the first time for my friend, Chance's birthday. It was loads of fun. Dad and I played the whole time. I was even able to go down a huge slide with Dad. It was a little scary. Mom and I also find time to dress alike. Thanks Mimi for the matching outfits. I also went to the beach again for Labor Day. I think I really like the sand now. Sometimes I like to eat it, but other than that, I had a great time!! Talk to you all soon.

Knox's 2nd Birthday

It was a great weekend full of fun times with my cousin Knox and my Aunt Mer Mer and Uncle Bill. We had a great time celebrating Knox's 2nd birthday and going to the aquarium. Everyone was able to come to Atlanta for a visit. It was the first time Mimi and Grandbunk and the whole family were able to stay with us.
Sometimes we even like to eat cookies off the floor. Who cares! I am now a big 9 month old. Mom says I am very busy. I don't really know what that means, but I love crawling all over the house and pulling up and walking around the coffee table. Well, I'll talk to you all soon.

First time at the Beach!

I had a great time at the beach over the Fourth of July. We all went down to Florida to visit with my NanaJ and GrandBob. Mom and Dad took me to the beach for a few minutes. I was a little unsure with the sand, but enjoyed watching the waves and being in the sun. Since we spoke last, I have started to crawl and have two teeth. They are very sharp teeth too! Can't wait to see everyone soon!

Father's Day/Mom's First Triathlon

Today was a big day. I was able to see my mom finish her first triathlon and celebrate Father's Day. So, I guess you can say, I had a very busy day. Mom and Dad got me up very early this morning to drive down to Callaway Gardens in Pine Lake, GA. Mom was pretty excited to finish the race and finish in pretty good time. She said she just wanted to finish the race, but she is a bit competitive. It was lots of fun! Dad and I watched from the sidelines. I loved hanging out with my dad today. I had to be extra special good, since it was Father's Day. I made my dad a really cool plate with my foot print on it for Father's Day. I also gave him my favorite picture of us framed. Mom gave dad a shadow box with all of his triathlon race numbers showcased. Dad really liked it. Well, I am very tired, so I'll talk to you soon:)

First Art Project

Hi Everybody!!  It's me, ClaireBear!!  I have been getting so big.  
Mom and Dad can not believe it!  So, let's see, I started eating some fruits and veggies, which are delicious!  I also really like school.  Mom seems to be more comfortable with me in school.  Maybe it's because she is right down the hall from me.  I have made all kinds of friends.  I love going on buggy rides and doing art projects.   My dad and I did my first homework project together.  I had to complete a two paragraph paper about Black History month in which I wrote about Tigar Woods.  Dad and I did all the research and we even found a great picture of Tigar to put on my paper.  I think my project was the best in the class!!  My dad is awesome!!  Well, that's all for now.  See you all soon!!

Hi Everyone!!  So, I guess you have heard the news that I can sit up.  This is very exciting.  I really like to be able to see everything.  Since I have turned four months old, I have started eating cereal and having my first fruits.  I'm such a big girl.  Mom and Dad like it too, since I am fully sleeping through the night (8 p.m. - 6 a.m.)!!  Well, that's all for now:)  Talk to you all again soon:)

February 2009

Hudson and I had a great time at his 1st birthday party.  We can't wait until we get a little bit bigger so we can play.

Sorry it has been so long since I've talked to you all.  This has been a very busy month.  I've done some traveling, had my class picture taken, gone to my first birthday party and celebrated the life of my Great-Nanny.  For those of you who did not know, my Great Nanny went to be in heaven.  My Mom and I have been talking about her and looking at pictures of her for the past couple of weeks.  She went to be with the Lord on Monday, February 2nd.  We all traveled to Knoxville to be with my GrandBunk and Mimi.   I was able to visit with my Great-Grandaddy and Granmomma too.  Here is a picture with my Great-Grandaddy. Well, just wanted to say Hi!!  My Mom wanted me to tell everyone she appreciates all your thoughts and prayers for my Great-Nanny.  I love this picture of Mom, Nanny and me.  Miss you!!

Memo to self, "Do not wear black and red to school."

So Daddy dressed me this morning for school.  What he did not think about was the fact that all of mommy's co-workers LOVE Georgia.  As you can see in my picture, they loved the fact I wore black and red and thought it would be funny to take my picture with UGA.  I just bit his ear!!  Take that UGA!!  I'm a VOL just like mommy and daddy!!  Now I just need to find an orange dress!!

First Transition Day of School at Bright Horizons

Today was my first transition day of school.  Mom brought me to her office to see my new classroom.  I stayed in my classroom for two hours today and enjoyed some sign language and meeting some new friends.  Here I am pictured with one of my teachers.  I think Mom was a little nervous bringing me to school, but I showed her that I'm a big girl.  She can come feed me and check on me anytime she wants, since she works right up the hall.  
I'm sure there will be plenty more pictures of me at school.  Talk to you again soon:)

Nashville Trip for New Years

We all took a trip to Nashville for New Years.  I am getting pretty good at these road trips.  I'm still sleeping most of the time, which makes it really easy on Mom and Dad.  Here are a few pictures of me with my family and friends.  Happy 2009!!


Dad got to see his good friend Chad.  I really like Chad and his little one Jones.  Can't wait to play with Jones soon.

I love my Great-Nanny.  Mimi, Grandbunk, Mom, Dad and I went to see her.  She was pretty excited to see me.
Mom always talks about her best friend Salli, so I was really excited to meet her and her new husband Phil.  I'm so glad Phil is home from Iraq!!  

Knox and I always have fun together.  He was so much fun to hang with over New Years.  
Mom and I started using using the Baby Bjorn over the holiday as well.  I love it!!  Talk to you all soon:)
