Happy Birthday Clairey!!!


Today, Claire Bear is 2. Little Claire is full of spunk and personality! She is so fun to be around and is always surprising us with the new things she learns. She can count to ten, thinks every color is pink, knows all of her animals and their sounds, knows all of her body parts(including thigh, shin, calf, heel, armpit, eyebrows, thumb and etc....), knows about all things that go..(her favorite is an ambulance), in the process of potty training, is obsessed with purses, shoes, books, cars, blankets, phones and Caleb. She loves to watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and is better and using an iPhone than most adults. She jumps all the time and the neighbors below us complained of crashing and banging sounds so loud that it made pictures fall off the wall. Somehow, I don't see how that could be possible, but she jumps a lot and I don't know how to stop her. When she watches Minnie, she jumps, when she plays, she jumps, when she runs, she jumps, when she laughs, she jumps, when she dances, she jumps, and she even jumps while she's whining!

I could go on and on for hours about this sweet little girl. She brings so much joy to our home! And instead of dreading the terrible two's, I'm going to embrace them and let her explore and play like a little girl should! Her dad took her to the pet store and got her her first pet Beta Fish today. It is blue and red and Claire says he is pink. Maybe we'll just name him Pink. She loves her fishie. We also got her a helmet and a scooter and a few dollar toys. She'll open those on Sunday and eat her yummy birthday cake! Thanks Grandma's and Grandpa's for all of the gifts!! We are off to see Toy Story 3.....

Happy Birthday Clairey Bug!!!!!
