Giddy up, Claire!

We're figuring out Claire's likes and dislikes while thoroughly enjoying getting to know her. We think we may have a future equestrian in the family.

Too funny - although I hate to break it to you, it probably just helps with gas. :-) Have you tried laying her on her stomach over your forearm? Kinda like a lion in a tree? Both of my boys loved being held that way - especially on daddy's wide forearms. And it's great when they are fussy so you can soothe them while rubbing their back. Enjoy all these little treasures... and thanks for sharing!

how cute is she!

I'm so happy for both of you!
She's beautiful, and my girl loved the vacuum cleaner noise.
She also loved to be bounced to sleep (just for naps). My mother was a little bit much at times with the bouncing ;) thank god we didn't have shaken baby syndrome (yikes)!
And I'm glad you took the drugs, going all natural is over rated. I would have had an epi but I dialated so fast there was no time.

So cute. I LOVE the newborn stage--I know some people don't. But awww. My baby turned 10 on 11/1, and #2 turns 9on 12/26.

Can you get 1 month old stetsons and cowboy boots? Hope so, you should invest. Start them young, I say. She will be herding the cows by the age of 3 months

PS: I love her. A lot. And yes, I will be a godparent. Mwahahahahhaah
