Happy Birthday baby girl! Yesterday marked 2 years since our sweet Claire entered our lives and turned our world upside down. It has been so much fun having a little girl... dresses and bows, pigtails and sparkly shoes... but she loves the dirt too - she's not afraid to sit down on the lawn and start digging in the dirt with her bare hands. And at the playground she isn't shy either - she takes off for the biggest slide every time, and if Boden can climb it, she thinks she can too.
Claire is really starting to talk alot and in 4-5 word sentences. It's been so much fun to hear her language skills take off. She and Boden have a lot of fun playing together (most of the time). It's fun to listen to their conversations.
Claire loves technology, she can work my iphone better than I can! Today we were organizing in the garage ands she went inside. I went after her when she didn't come back in about 2-3 min, and found her upstairs on our bed playing a game app on Michael's ipad.
She is such a good big sister too - she wants to hold Titus all the time, she tries to help feed him ("open mouth Titus!"), and is always excited when he wakes up from a nap. Recently she has started trying to read books to him too.
Claire is such a fun, crazy, spunky, busy, little girl. She is teaching me so much about motherhood. I always thought Boden was strong-willed, but then I met Miss Claire. Maybe it's just the age, but this girl knows what she wants and is determined to get it!
I am so thankful to be her mama and I can't wait to see the woman she grows up to be. I know God has big plans for her life.
