While Tom is crashing cars, CJ and I will be trying out the mommy-and-me situation for the week, doing a test run, if you will. Just in time for our test week, CJ has switched from two naps to one nap a day. I've known this was coming...I just hoped it wouldn't be so soon!
Lastly, my little freelance writing business is picking up, and I'm busy most evenings writing articles on baby gear, home energy audits, or whatever. It's a nice change of pace from the all-mom-all-the-time thing.
Anyway, here are some photos from the past month or so of Claire Bear being Claire. Enjoy!

Cousin Crissy's First Communion.

CJ & JJ
I laid out these blankets for a little baby who was coming over, and guess who loved it?
It was fun...
But then it got scary and Claire needed a rescue.
That one time CJ fell asleep in the car.
Lilly and CJ playing around
Here are all the guys, plus the babies. That tiny little one is Archer.
We went to the zoo during one of Tom's days off. CJ is a total pro at the Metro now.
Riding the Metro
At the zoo we saw these cute baby birds.
CJ got to see a cow up close. These are a lot different from the cows in Praia!
I was trying to get a shot of CJ's curls. Her hair is curling a bit, especially in the back, and I love it.
CJ and Tom went into the butterfly exhibit. I think she really liked it. A butterfly landed on her head!
