Beautiful Life

Hey child up and go; A big world is out there waiting for us to live in every day. Outside you will find, there is love all around you; Takes you, makes you wanna' say; That it's a beautiful life and it's a beautiful world and it's a beautiful time to be here, to be here, to be here. -Fisher

One Month!

June 12th was one month since the day we met Claire! She is doing great and has come a long way from that timid toddler that was so attached to Daddy and would push me away! It has been amazing to watch our little girl come out of her shell! Don't get me wrong, she is still very shy, but she has so much personality that she was just hiding until she got to know us better. Her babbling is turning into parroting! The kids love to see if she will repeat the words they say to her. So far she has said: Claire, chair, books, go Papa, see Meme, dirty shoes, socks, and no! But, she still uses her own little made-up signs and signals to communicate her needs and desires. And, she falls to pieces if you say the word "no" to her!

She gives kisses now!

Things we know about Claire:

  • she loves sunglasses and mirrors!
  • she can do simple puzzles!
  • she still hates to take a bath!
  • she DOES NOT like dogs!
  • she loves cheese sticks, grapes, yogurt and raisins...oh, and M&M's! But her favorite food is cherry tomatoes!
  • she WILL NOT eat meat!
  • she still loves her socks and shoes..... but the jacket mysteriously disappeared as soon as we got home!
  • she LOVES to go anywhere in the car!
  • she is very moody after her nap.
  • she learns something new everyday!
