I'm a little behind on photos. There's not much of a unifying theme to these, but we've just got a little of catching up to do from the past couple of weeks. Here's a little glimpse of what we've been up to.
Clara is really, really, really into standing right now. It's pretty much all she wants to do. All the time. It makes doing our physical therapy and tummy time and really anything else super difficult. Because she will find a way to wriggle herself on to her feet and pull up. She's not cruising or anything (in fact, we haven't even mastered crawling), but she sure does love pulling up to standing and hanging out there. I can't believe how big it makes my girl seem....
No need to play inside the exersaucer if you can just hang out on the outside of it, huh?
Here's Clara doing a little physical therapy with Cindy, our physical therapist who we love! She's doing a great job of helping Clara get stronger and Clara loves her time with Cindy.
Mama works hard with Clara on physical therapy between our sessions with Cindy, too:
While the leaves were all pretty, we spent an afternoon at Tanglewood getting some professional photos taken. This one is mine (I'll post the "real" ones in another post), but is nice...
The photo shoot really wore our girl out. On the five minute drive home from Tanglewood, this happened:
We've been working on eating. *sigh* Clara is still really not a fan of solids. We've got an appointment with Dr. C tomorrow and are hoping that we get some new strategies and help. Right now, I'm afraid I'm gonna be nursing this kid till she goes to college. One of the suggestions for helping Clara get better with food is to let her just "play" with it. Dr. C suggested that we let her paint herself with baby food and just make a big 'ole mess. So, that's what we've been doing. It starts out like this:
And ends up like this:
Mama K and Daddy Bob came for a visit! It has been way too long since we had seen them, and we loved letting them love on our little girl.
Other than that, we've just been playing lots. Here's Clara baking a pretend cake (aka: playing with a bowl and spoon because all her many toys were getting just a little boring):
Thanks for following us! We think this little bundle just gets cuter and sweeter every day.
