Happy Birthday Claire!

What better way to spend the day than at the park filling up an entire memory card with photos of my girlies.

A few things about you right now, Claire:

* you make this stink face where you scrunch up your lips & start breathing really fast through your nose.
* you love babies & stuffed animals & anything with a face. you pick them up & make a happy "awww" sound, then hug & kiss them & put them over your shoulder.
*you have been walking for a little while but you're still a little wobbly yet you insist on carrying things around while you walk. It's usually something big & akward like a chair or a toy bus or the dog's bed. You get mad when you fall down with it & grunt in anger, but you keep on doing it. You are determined & persistent.
* you fold your arms for the dinner prayer & you are so pleased with yourself.
* you love to eat.
* you love to be outside.
* you like to sit on the edge of chairs & kick your legs.
* you are so cute when I ask you if you want something & you nod your head or point to the cereal boxes when you want a snack, or turn your hands up in the air when I ask you where something is.
* you get really excited to see daddy at the end of the day & really excited to see Sadie when you two have been apart.
* you are cuter than cute & we love you.

I think we're blogging at the same time! Happy Birthday Claire! I love those pictures, they are beautiful! I'm glad you had a fun day with the girls.

On an awkward note....I totally found that doll stuffed under my couch today!! I have NO idea how it got there, and I feel so bad that you went back to look for it! Thanks again and sorry! Cambria was happy though!

happy Birthday Claire! She is such a big girl! Talan does the same thing with the walking around with something bigger than him! Why do they do that? I dont know... but I love them for trying! I cannot wait to get Talan and Claire together this summer! Oh, and great pictures! I love that they are sitting in a bunch of little flowers!
