My new little fetus has made me pretty miserable. I'm not so good at being prego, but I'm trying to be. So far: three hospital visits and 20lbs lost. I feel like I should be on some sort of weight loss program, but gotta say, barfing up everything you eat (and everything you don't eat---bleh), isn't the best way to maintain health. I try and stay so busy that I don't remember to barf, it helps some days and not others.

Claire is having a blast with her daddy. She and he have developed a way to toss a ball. Basically, Nick stands at the bottom of the stairs and Claire throws things to him and he to her. I often find piles of things at the bottom of the stairs thanks to this arrangement. I guess practice makes perfect!

Claire is finally getting her eye teeth! She's been pretty crabby with these. Hope they come in fast!

18 month check up

Claire was weighed and measured:

weight: 22.6 lbs, 25%
height: 32 inches, 50%

She's growin'! She points at my belly and signs "baby", then she kisses it and tries to find my belly button with her finger. what a doll.
