I'm behind again on postings so these will be short and sweet since the weeks run together. This week Emma Claire made her first trip to the polls to help Mommy vote in the mid-term elections. She also started feeding herself finger foods and mastered the pincher grip (thumb & forefinger) surprisingly quickly. She also started what we refer to as "dancing" where she sits & bounces herself usually while smiling or babbling. It's adorable. She is also really enjoying bathtime these days and plays with her toys for a good 10-15 minutes each night before we soap her up. New foods this week were puffs, cheese, white potatoes, and pasta.
