Rosi the Second...

This is my niece, Galilee Rose Mathews. Ben (my brother) and Tamme (pronounced like Ta- me) named her Rose after my mother, Rosemary. And BOY does she look like her. Needless to say, that child is a beautiful one! So sweet too. We met up with Tamme and Gali in Salt Lake while they came to visit family and seal a sister to her adopted son. Super good to see them. They normally live in Texas and we have only met Gali once before this and they hadn't met claire until then, too. Gali is 12 months and Claire is 9 months in this shot. We were trying to get them both to eat dinner, Claire had fun eating only broccoli (girl after her mother's heart, ha ha) and putting the rest on the floor. Gali didn't eat much either.
Best friends already.
I love Claire's ear in this shot!
I couldn't get very good shots of either of them, especially when I tried to get them to look at me. I still like this little smirk Gali has. She's such a keeper.


Other random photos include this one. No, it's not an advertisement for fisher price, it's just that Claire won't put her feet down for anything! She always has them resting on whatever she can. So, this is supposed to be a typical day with her eating her food with her feet resting one whatever is available.
These are 'butt in the air' shots. Lately, she's even started to walk in this position! She's so funny.



This is the 'hurkie' I was trying to describe earlier. When she's holding still, she sits like this.

Bree also does the 'hurkie' pose and she ALWAYS has her up when she is in her high chair... it is funny that some babies do the same things. The Hurkie pose looks almost like a yoga pose...

She is so cute, Debbie! It's so good to see everything you are up to! You'll have to fill me in on everything you've been up to the last 15 years or so!

Hi Sis..
You think that Gali looks like Rosi, eh? I've heard that before except that I was never so beautiful. Your pix and blog are so fun. Nick the graduate, great shots of Claire-bear. We love her so much. Grandpa just raves.
