longest post EVER.
i’ve been slacking again. honestly i really haven’t felt like writing in some time and taking pictures hasn’t been a priority lately. sorry.
things have been up and down around our house. claire is still on the diet, still having seizures. don’t get me wrong, we have seen major improvements. there are many times she wakes up and doesn’t have them, but sometimes she still does and they can be pretty strong ones. she also has stopped tremoring periodically in her right arm and doing little “jolts” like she used to. she learned how to babble about 2 weeks ago and talks to us every day morning and night! she is also trying to sit on her own, she likes to try and i am very confident that someday she will get the hang of it. she has been super smiley especially in the mornings, which of course makes my day. overall, we are happy with the small changes we have seen and plan to stick to the diet. the doctor reccomended increasing her medicine to see if the combo of it with the idet will work better. so we increased in a few days ago and are hoping we see more improvements.
here’s something else claire has learned to do:
she likes to tell us when she is sleepy. so sweet.
and get ready here are LOTS of pics of just being cute. to catch you all up on the last month.
she likes making funny faces.
the following are pics adrian snapped of us having a girl talk.
she loves bath time.
until her paci falls out.
family pic at schnepf farms festival.
what a cute smirk!
my silly girl.
halloween night. she was a claire bear.
and wanted none of it.
she was not happy with us. and did not get to trick or treat. because she screamed instead. bummer.
at least one vender girl enjoyed her costume.
that’s it for now! congratulations on making it through this looong post! i’ll try to add the pictures to flickr soon so they link up and you can print them if you want!
