What a girl!

Claire had some teeth come in a few weeks ago.

She's also been clapping her hands and waving, although both are tough to get her to do on command. (Tyler got this picture like a total GENIUS).

The other day we took her on a walk. While we stopped to chat with our neighbor Charlie she favored him with a high-wattage smile like the one above. He was completely charmed, muttering "what a girl. What a girl!"

I couldn't agree more. What a girl!

For instance, she is a dancer and lover of music. Watch patiently if you want to witness exceptional grace and rhythm.

When my nephew Josh Newman was four or five years old I was dancing really hard to entertain him at the level he so richly deserved. After I had nearly killed myself to do so, he glanced at me in marginal approval, nodded slightly, and said, "good dancin'."

My point in telling this story: good dancin', Claire. Good dancin'.


Finally: I want to take a minute and thank SuperWHY.

SuperWHY, you have given me 25 minutes a day that I can count on. You have given me.....
