Claire is now six and we are beyond blessed and happy that she's in our family. Our one and only blue-eyed girl is a thriving, healthy, witty, beautiful young girl who loves school, wild outfits, climbing, cats, art, and anything thrilling. She is a passionate person who is also very tender and sensitive to others and has an independent streak that sometimes leaves me wondering where she's wandered off to. Most of the time, the answer is...up.
Up a tree.
Up a higher tree.
Up on top of the swingset.
Up on a roof.
We opened presents with some family watching on Skype and she was showered with boots and a scooter, a cat coloring book and a suction cup bow and arrow (she'll be the next Katniss Everdeen...and so far, only one sibling has been shot in the head).
|This sums up Claire nicely.|
|Nervously wondering if she can manage to blow out all those candles...|
We sure love Claire and are happy to have another year with our darling girl.
Happy birthday, Claire Bear!
