Chillin at Nana's

Abbey was great at rubbing Claire's back to get her to sleep.


After sitting in the car for 2 days, we decided to hit the park during our first full day in Valparasio.  We tried to get Claire to take a nap all morning, but she resisted. 
So of course she fell asleep on the walk to the playground and missed all of the fun :(

  We had a blast playing with cousin Abbey.

Next stop fun

Next stop Nana and Pop Bowlby's house outside of Chicago
 We had to endure another 6 hours in the car, but this time it was more fun because cousin Abbey joined us on the trip.
 Once there Claire was ready to spread her legs and get to playing. 

First stop Ohio

 We packed up our SUV last week and headed North to visit with Troy's relatives.  Since we didn't know how Claire would do on a long car ride, we split the trip into 2 days.  It also gave us an opportunity to see Troy's sister Angie's new house in Ohio.  Claire did great on the 8 hour drive, Jack, not so much.
  Claire had fun opening presents with her cousin Abbey.
 She got this very cute new hat, but by far her favorite was the bow on the package. 
 Claire wasn't a fan of her cousin Chase at first, but just wait until you see the pictures of them later in the week.  They became great friends. 

 Jack HATED Angie's house.  It has mostly slippery floors, which he is scared to walk on.  He may look big and scary, but he's really a big baby!

 It was too much fun for Claire.  She fell asleep on her daddy waiting for her mommy to pack the car.  Next stop Indiana!

Cheerios aren't just for eating

 They sure are fun to play with!  Claire has gotten really good at eating Cheerios.  She can even pick them up and put them in her mouth all by herself.  She's funny though, if you put a piece of cereal in her hand she grips it tight and won't let it go, like she's saving it for later.

Playgroup Christmas party

I wouldn't let Claire pull out her own hair bow, so she tried to pull out her friend's bow. 

 Notice the little Claire hand pulling the little boy's hair.

 We had a very fun morning!
