While the blog didn’t recognize the 18- and 19-month marks, they didn’t go unnoticed around here. Clare has really grown into her own the past couple of months.
At 18, she was walking quite well, manuevering steps and using a fork like a pro. She definitely takes possession of what’s hers (or what she wants) and stands her ground. It’s part of the 4th child DNA, I think. She has this cute little personality and ducks her chin when she gets embarrassed. Seriously, kids should not be this cute.
Her second Christmas was way more fun than the first (see picture for proof). And, she’s taken a new interest in dancing. Anytime she hears music – Mass, car, TV, toy – she starts shaking her hips and bouncing her knees. We have a new family song that starts the dance, but if I post it, I promise it will get lost in translation. That, and you’ll think we have way too much time on our hands.
