Happy Birthday Clara Elizabeth (one more birthday post!)

One year ago today, you looked like this...


And this morning at Gymboree you looked like this...
At home you looked like this...


And sounded like this...

You're pulling up constantly now, but you can't get back down. So you say "uh oh, uh oh" when you get stuck until someone comes and gets you. I think this is so cute I leave you there just to hear you say it again. You also say Dada, and Ball and Mama and try to say Balloon and Dora. You have brought us so much joy this past year, and we are happy and sad about this new phase we are entering into.
We love you.

She might not say "Mama," but it sounds like she says, "camera" already! Too cute...

What a sweetie!!! I love that she is already talking. What an adorable voice! Will she be a singer too? Ben already is w/ his wheels on the bus! Andrew isn't as much of doing the talking thing as he is doing the moving thing. He has already taken 2 steps and will stand up if I let go for about 5-10 seconds. Crazy! They are growing up too fast!
Hey, and I might be the only one to notice Tigger walking by at the very beginning on the movie. ;)
