She can now:
*WALK!! Yes she is mobile and getting faster every day.
*When you say "How bigs' Claire?" she raises her hands above her head as we say "This big!"
*She gives kisses
*If you ask her where your nose is- she will point to it.
* She can give high fives
* When people say "yay" or she hears clapping she claps too!
*She says "Uh Oh" which is her official first word, but now she is associating it with things that really mean "uh oh" like tripping or loosing her balance while walking.
*She copies us when we sing (I have an awesome video that I'll post soon)
*She is signing "bottle" and "more"
* She can almost say bottle too....but only when she is really hungry and really tired...."baaaaoul"
*She is a master stair climber - before you can turn around once she is half way up and so happy about it.
We have got the sickies around here. It started with Claire, moved its way to me, then John, then Cameron, then Katey Jane, and now Claire AGAIN and Grandpa. Its a bad one and it stays for a long time.
We just had our first baby calf of the season and it was a circus! Luckily dad came home early because he was sick and noticed a momma giving birth in the field! He came in and told us...Landon and I raced to get our clothes/boots on to go watch. As we got closer I noticed it wasn't a baby coming out...a baby was already trying to stand next to the momma. It was her uterus hanging out!! Lucily, I watch Dr. Pol on Animal Planet and I knew immediately it was a prolapsed uterus. I yelled to Dad...."Dad, its not a baby, its her uterus!", He said"What? How do you know?" and I replied, "It happens on Dr. Pol" (The incredible Dr. Pol is a tv show the kids and I like to watch about a veterinarian in Michigan) So we called the vet and sure enough he had to come and push it back inside her YOUCH! Luckily the mommy and baby are ok.
Thats it for now....here are some cute pictures and videos too.
Claire is just the happiest little thing - she is always bursting with joy!!
