My baby turns 1! Everything is the same and Everything is different.

My dearest Clara...words can not describe my love for you. Really. I'm so thankful you are mine. You surprised me but it was a wonderful surprise. You fill my heart with joy with one look at those blues eyes ohh those eyes. I'm overwhelmed looking back and so peaceful looking forward. You are my third and my completed our family. (well, unless adoption is in our future) Today we're enjoying you. Your family is all around you loving you. My sister and her family are here from England spending 2 weeks with us and my brother, sister-in-law and niece fly in today. Clara will have family (my family) around for her first b-day party...that's something that's never happened for either of my other kids. AND IT'S SOOOO SPECIAL to me.

Clara, you are beautiful! Content and easy in any situation...even when your brother wants to wrestle you! She's starting to walk (with help) and says, "HI!, Dada, Mama, and tickle!" Ohh and she screams in glee all the time.

Soon I will be the Mom of a 1, 3, 6 year old! CRAZY! and incredible. and wonderful.

I took pictures last week and today of my girl...I'll post them soon.
