Claire at 2 years old: 22 pounds & 32 inches tall
We work through each day together, whether we are having a tough day or an all smilies day the three of us lean on each other and talk through it all. At 2 years old we are asking a lot of her, we want her to be kind, generous, flexible and true to herself. All of those things take a very long time to learn and we are all trying to make each day a happy one and work together. At 2 years old I am amazed at her curious nature and her love of making people laugh. Being a parent is hard work but I am thankful that I get to do this with Claire. I am thankful that the child I get to raise is a little baby lady who likes to play games, who enjoys eating while laying on the floor and is already starting to be a practical joker.
- Claire: for being born
- Ryan: for being the daddy
- My mom & dad: All the jello shots that were such a huge huge hit I know they took a lot of work but they were delicious and the yummy beer marge that went quick! everyone loved them and appreciate all of the hard work.
- Todd & Dana: That guacamole & salsa cannot be beat! People gobbled it all up and I am still eating it now, so flavorful! We are very thankful!
