4 Months!

Claire is 4 months! Time is flying by with this precious baby girl. Claire had a rough week a couple of weeks ago. She had been extremely fussy for a couple of days and then started running fever one night so I knew something was up. We took her to the doctor and sure enough she had an ear infection. They thought she might have a UTI, but luckily all of the cultures came back negative. She is feeling much better now and hopefully we won't have too many of those pesky ear infections with her. Yesterday she had her 4 month appointment and she is growing so much! She weighed in at 14 lbs. 9 oz (75%) and was 25 1/4 inches (75%). The doctor also gave us the go ahead on rice cereal because she hasn't been sleeping well and has been showing signs that my milk just wasn't enough. Last night she slept awesome after having her cereal so I feel confident it was just what she needed! She fills those cheeks up to tide her over through the night!

Claire is such a great baby and is as laid back as they come. She just goes with the flow and loves any attention that comes her way. She has the most beautiful smile and we love her so much! We think she is just the most beautiful baby girl, but we might be a little bias! :)


The boys love to watch her eat her cereal.



Sweet baby girl!

I agree...you have one cute little girl! That last picture of her is darling...such a beautiful smile (it might just be her magic weapon--Travis is going to have a hard time telling her 'no').

She is precious! Glad she's loving the cereal and that it is helping her sleep better. It was so good to see you all when you were here.

You need to use that last picture on your Facebook and enter it in a baby contest. It's too cute.
