Baby San Antonio is now cooing, smiling, laughing, and doing her best attempt at sitting up. She loves facing the world and will stare at you for hours.
I had the privilege of introducing Claire to all her living great-grandparents in these couple of months. My dad's parents (Nana and Napa to Claire) flew out here for Claire's first tea party. Then a couple weeks ago I made a very last minute trip to visit my mom's mom (Grandma to Claire - and to me for the matter!). It was such a blessing to see everyone hold Claire and get to spend some special time with her.
Our predictions are that Claire will be a world renowned musician. Our belief stems from our own biased understanding of how well she is developing, and from how enraptured she is when Mr. SA plays for her.

And now that we have started reading children's books, Mr. SA and I are convinced that we could write something at least as clever as what these authors come up with. In fact we already have our main character (inspired by Baby SA)...

We may or may not introduce an actual plot line (that seems to be a trend in children's books).
