This week Clara turned 8 months old and I turned 33 years old. At 8 months, Clara is crawling and clapping all the time, and starting to pull up and wave. She's a bit shy around strangers at first. She loves sliced banana, mama's homemade pizza, and organic whole grain waffles with a bit of maple syrup. She's using a straw sippy for water and diluted juice. Every time and age that passes with us thinking she can't possibly get any more delightful, she does :-)
Showing off her clapping skills (while eating bananas - she's multi-talented):
Chasing the kitty all over. Baby: 0, Kitty: 1. (Warning: This video is only for relatives who infrequently see the baby and can afford to waste a few minutes of their life on this.)
On my birthday, I had to work and then Scott had class that night. Exotic, huh? Well, at least I got all these (and a few more) awesome cards and presents...

|Clara is so advanced.|
And a pizza party at work (I love pizza)... and then a couple of hours after the pizza party, I was summoned to the conference room and saw:
I was so happy! It's rare I get to see my girl in the middle of the work day. Thanks a ton to Scott and my gnomey Pamela for making that happen!
|Baby girl is so big! Will I even be able to lift her on my next birthday??|
Have a great weekend, y'all :-)
