Happy Birthday Claire.

I haven't blogged for soo long.  

Life has been crazy.  We've been staying home a lot.  It's been the best thing for us right now.  Especially for the little guy. We're still figuring things out.  Figuring each other out.  We learned quickly that Zoomie likes to be home.  After a night out, we have a few days of crazy, whiny, fussiness, so it's just better to avoid all of that completely.  We're slowly starting to hang out with friends again.  So if you haven't seen us for months, it's not because we don't love you, it's because we just need time.  

Felt the need to explain but I'm really writing a post for one specific reason...


 My sweet Claire is six.

How have six years gone by already?  People always told me that time flies when you have kids and it really really does.  

I remember the day she was born like it was yesterday.  She was ten days late and I was so ready to hold her in my arms.  My labor was fast and furious and then there she was.  The love of our lives, our first little peanut, finally.  

Claire is the sweetest, smartest, silliest little person I know.  She hardly ever gets into trouble.  She is so incredibly helpful with her siblings.  She is one of my favorite people in the world to talk to.  She loves to use the word "fascinating".  She is truly an old soul who just gets life.  She is content and happy.  And she loves Jesus.

Claire, I cannot even put into words how proud I am to call you my daughter.  You amaze me everyday with your big heart and your inquisitive mind.  I love that you ask questions, every day, all day.  And I will never get tired of your stories.  You are so beautiful inside and out.  I'm so thankful for you.  You bring so much joy to every single person in our family.  I love you to pieces!  Happy Birthday.
