Today she started saying, “Yes Ma’am,” when I asked her to. It goes more like, “Mess Ya’am!”, but she’s working on it. The fact that she will say it, autonomously, is the best part.
Today, in the car on the way home from my sister’s house, she sneezed and then she said, “Bless You!”
At dinner tonight she danced around the kitchen saying, “YAY! Dinner time! YAY! I eat!!”
She has such a joyful spirit. If I could have 100 Claire’s, I’d do it in a heartbeat.
I’m going to have to start writing about the other kids – people are going to think I’m partial and that I spoil Claire. I’m not partial to her and I do NOT spoil her! But she is my baby – and she’s gonna be my baby for a long time I think! Even if she has potty trained before Hannah! HAHAHA!
Oh, and I know she needs a hair cut, but I’m refusing to cut it. I’m going to let it grow long. I usually keep it pulled back out of her face! Don’t worry – she doesn’t always look like a vagabond…remember, she’s my baby and I spoil her… LOL
