Wherein a birthday is celebrated

Claire turned 4 last week. She is as wonderful a girl as a mother could hope for. Filled with curiosity, passion and caring. She is tall, strong and her once-black hair has softened into light brown curls that burst from her head.

We frustrate each other some times, but I cannot believe I get to shepherd this kid on her journey. 

Like she once said to me, "You make my heart so very happy, mama."

You too, little girl. You too.

I cannot believe how much I love you both.
Happy birthday Claire! Congrats to mom! She is an incredible girl.

I didn't have time to read lj since the little guy was born. But I hope you will continue to post when you can. I understand too well that the days can be challenging! I hope you are good. And yes, there is a lot more to life than poop. And in a couple years we will feel that. At the moment...well... *sigh*

At least you will have both out of diapers in a year or two. Then their poop won't be the issue. There will be new and bewildering things to worry about!
