Happy 3rd Birthday, Clara.

My little Claire-bear. I cannot believe you are 3.

You are extremely independent, stating “I do it myself” but at the same time, grabbing your blanket and snuggling up with me.

I love how you drink your juice and twirl your hair. That’s how I know you get really tired. When both hands are messing and twirling in your hair.

You are so charming. Your smile and giggle are infectious and always have been.

You may not be the athlete that Addy is, but your ability to put together a puzzle is nothing short of amazing.

While potty training you this year, we finally got you to go by cupping our hands to our ears to listen.. and you continued to do that every time you went, but somehow it’s faded away.

You call yourself “Clara” instead of “Claire” and I fear that it’s catching on and we will all be calling you that before too long.

You are extremely sneaky, constantly getting Addison into trouble.

You will absolutely NOT do something that you don’t want to.

I see traits of mine in you- not a morning person or stubborn, but so many of your Daddy’s- excellent swimmer, singer, and very laid back at most times- I call you my little beach bum. That is, until someone wants you to do something you don’t want to.

You are perfectly happy to sit and entertain yourself. Whether it be by watching a movie or reading a book or putting a puzzle together or coloring.

You are very organized.

You love your blanket, Ariel doll, Sleeping Beauty doll, and Fannie your elephant all in the bed with you.. another one of my traits.

I love you so much my little Clara Bell. I can’t wait to see what being 3 years old has in store for you.
