Claire's 9 month update!

This month has gotten away from me! I could go on and on about how I wanted to accomplish so many things for the month but didn't get to any of them. I will skip all of that though and talk about my cute baby because she is 9 months old now! She turned 9 months old on Sunday May 22. We had dinner at my Mom's house that day, because we go to a families house for dinner every other Sunday, and it was a lot of fun spending the day with family.

She is growing so much and it's so fun watching. I love spending my days with her. Even though I can get overwhelmed at the amount of responsibility I have now, her little face makes it all worth it. I have major separation anxiety from her now though. If I am gone from her for more than two hours I start to panic a little. On that note, I am still having panic attacks about once a week at this point. I am trying to find what triggers them and help get through them on my own but I don't know if I can do that much longer. They have gotten worse as time goes on so I may need to seek further help. I am taking medication for them so hopefully there is some improvement. 
I know that's a lot to share to the internet but hey it's life and I want everyone to know I'm not perfect. 
Life is beautiful. It's been so fun being a mom and I look forward to all the adventures we get to have everyday. 
We love you Claire Rachel! Thanks for choosing us to be your mom and dad.
