Puppy Love

We spent the 4th of July weekend at the lake and much to everyone's delight there is a new puppy! He is 7 weeks old and a bundle of energy and fun. Claire loved being around the puppy and the two older dogs as well as the other 3 kids who were there! Our house seems kind of quiet and boring compared the lake house with the Slappeys and Duncans! It was fun to see Claire with the other kids (Reuben, Judith and Solomon) and it makes me look forward to when she is toddling around and playing with them.
Claire had her 6 month check up today and is doing great! She is in the 90th percentile for height and weight and thriving. We started solid foods last week which is an adventure. She did fine with cereal and tolerated squash but drew the line at peas which she promptly gagged on and threw up! Oh well!

Very Happy Father's Day

We had a wonderful time celebrating Rhett's 1st Father's Day! We went out for a special dinner at one of his favorite restaurants where he enjoyed a yummy steak! We took some family photos and enjoyed the afternoon together. Rhett is a wonderful Daddy to Claire. She is so lucky to have someone who loves her so much and is so proud of her for every accomplishment no matter how big or small.
