So, Claire took a ride in the ambulance yesterday at three in the morning. Poor baby's hemodialysis catheter broke off and subsequently blood was everywhere. Luckily, Cooks was able to get a new one placed. They said that this will be the last time they can place one because there is so much scar tissue. … Continue reading Whelp… (Well…)

And, she is no longer wearing 24 month clothes (or size 2T). After being in that size for a year, it's fabulous seeing her wear "toddler" … Continue reading Listed!
After Halloween, Claire had a bit of a cold and the month of November flew by until it was Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving was full of delicious food celebrated with both sets of grandparents. She even tried the food! But, she didn't like it. She ended up playing while Mom and Dad ate at both thanksgiving meals. … Continue reading Between Thanksgiving and Christmas 2016
