Tomorrow is Claire's first birthday!! WOW!! Most people say, "I just can't believe it's flown by that quickly" and that is true. But I really want to be honest and say "We survived It and really ended up loving every minute of it (the last six months)!" Ever since claire's really hard start to life, she has been an absolute dream. But we wouldn't take back a minute of it. God made us stronger and she was worth all the sleep deprivation, dr. appts. and more! She is such a blessing and JOY to be around. Chris and I stand in awe just amazed at what God has given us. We NEVER would have dreamed that we would say we are glad they are so close in age!! :) They love each other and we love watching them. They both think each other hung the moon! We are having Claire's family party next wednesday, so you'll see all the pictures then.
Claire is crawling everywhere, pulling up on everything, and walking along the furniture. She took a while to crawl, but it looks like walking will definitely be in the next month sometime. She still LOVES to eat and doesn't waste any food! I just want to squeeze those thighs and cheeks all the time. She is very kissable!!! Claire is also really a funny baby! She tries to copy everything Wells does, so it's hysterical what she comes up with. They play hide and seek in the curtains, she makes a "freeze" face that makes Chris and I cry we laugh so hard (sorry i couldn't get the video to load) and she just laughs all the time. We could not ask for anything more! To fit in with our family, you just need to laugh a lot!
Happy Birthday sweet Claire Bear! We love you and could not imagine life without you! Our cups runneth over!!!
