We have a sitter!


We practiced and practiced. Claire fought back by throwing herself backwards. Or forwards, for that matter. And then one day, Claire decided that she wanted to sit on her own and so she has been doing it ever since. This just furthers my parenting experience--you can't force a baby to do anything. They will do it when they are good and ready. And with Claire it's like turning a switch on. And she's the one who decides when to turn it on!

Oh man! This is one of my absolute favorite baby stages. When they can sit up, but they can't really go anywhere. So you can actually sit them down with some toys and get some work done. Plus, they are cute. Just put those toys out of reach and she'll be motoring before you know it.

Harper Turns 3!

We sure love this little girl, and we were excited to wish her a happy birthday.  But, of course, this little sassafrass decided to have so...
