Claire had her first little taste of rice cereal on Sunday. She didn't hate it, but it appears to be an acquired taste. More ended up running down her chin than actually going in her mouth and she made some cute little faces in the process. Of course, her first meal was served up with lots of help from her siblings...maybe that explains the straight arm that she's trying to give Spencer in the picture!

Rockin 'n' Rolling

Claire learned how to roll over this week. It's so fun to watch her. (Well, for me it is anyway. I took it easy on all of you and kept the video to 14 seconds!) She did it for the first time on Sunday evening. Nobody saw it happen, we just found her on her stomach. Since then she's gotten better and faster and I can't keep her off of her tummy. Poor Matt is on a business trip this week so he gets to see it for the first time with all of you on our blog! He better hurry home before she graduates from college. : )

Finally, some brotherly love!

Just thought I'd share a couple of pics of the kids. The girls have fun getting ready and going to school together. They ride their bikes and Nicole and Corinne are pretty good about taking care of Paige. Spencer went through a bit of shock (and so did I!) when all of his big sisters went back to school taking his playmates away for the whole morning, but he's doing better and even tries to play with Claire at times. (Still under CLOSE supervision!)
Yesterday Nicole and Corinne made a "card store". They handmade greetings cards that we could buy with play money that they also made. Well, I thought I would share a sampling of their work. This is the poem that Nicole wrote in a card that she made for Matt to give to me:
I leave,
I miss you.
You miss me too even though I hog the T.V. for football,
go hunting without taking you,
come back with no meat.
You are my sweetheart, you can't be beat!
We had a good laugh about this...makes me think that she pays attention around here!
