Last night, Claire officially said "Mama".
After much encouragement & practicing on our part, she went from "bbbba bbbba" to "bbmmmaa ma".
Of course I didn't get it on video or anything like that. Which totally bums me out because we got her saying "dada" on video. Oh well.
Tonight, she also figured out that if she shoves a cracker in the doggy's face, the doggy will eat it. So that was a fun little game they played. Not.
At least she likes sharing, no?
And last but DEFINITELY not least, Claire is finally showing some interest & motivation in wanting to crawl!!!
For the longest time, she'd just sit and whine & fuss and move her hands because that's all she knew how to do.
But tonight, out of nowhere, she went from sitting to moving her hands to one side & went onto her tummy. That's about as far as she got before getting frustrated & crying, but she's making progress! I'm only this excited about wanting her to crawl because I KNOW she wants to get moving so bad & I KNOW she will be much more content once she figures it out.
I've had a post full of updates sitting in my drafts for over a week with lots of pictures. I just need to finish writing it so I can post it!
Also, thank you SO much for all of you that gave me amazing suggestions on our upcoming trip! I've calmed down a bit & know it will all be ok! We leave tomorrow! AH!
