Clara turns two soon (but if you ask me I may not admit that fact, I’m still sort-of in denial over that whole idea). With a move coming up in just three weeks (EEEK!) we decided to celebrate while we were at my parents’ house for Fourth of July weekend, before things started to get to crazy around here. And, she couldn’t have been happier about the entire idea.
Starting her day out with her best bud (and also some juice and Curious George).
Oliver was determined to help open those presents.
Trying on her new play dress (my mom made it – isn’t it just perfect?!)
And a matching dress for her baby doll.
Aunt Beki got Clara a box of dress-up hats. That purple one has been worn to the library and the grocery store this week.
And, what’s a summer birthday party without a swimming pool, hats, buckets, and…an umbrella…?
And we got to FaceTime with some of Sam’s family too. 🙂 Technology can be a wonderful thing.
Happiest of birthdays to my sweet, snuggly little girl. Who’s totally girly and obsessed with Fancy Nancy and all things clothing and fashion related, and yet will wrestle and tumble with her brother, stomp through muddy puddles, and launch herself fearlessly off the top of a slide. You’re a joy, Clara Jane. And we love you dearly.
