She's FOUR

My baby girl is F O U R. Anyone that meets her, loves her. She makes everyone of all ages feel like they are her best friend (whether you're a 50 yr old man or a 12 yr old girl). 

She is smart, thoughtful, brave, adores her dad, has a mind of her own, loves to make people laugh, and is a leader. Sometimes when I look at her, I can't believe how lucky I am that I get to be her mom and be with her every day. She is one special girl. Happy birthday, Claire!!

We rented out the "Bug Room" at Kangaroo Zoo and took some of her friends for her party. It was AWESOME. Especially considering the new babe and lack of time and ambition to do something cute at home. We loved it.

First month

These kids adore their little brother. Claire loves holding him and Alex loves to kiss him.

Everyone (including me) has done well with the adjustment except Alex. He's been struggling without as much attention. Poor kid. I knew his world would be the most rocked.

The 4th of July is my second favorite holiday. I will always have the best memories growing up in Huntsville, doing fund raising booths with the Young Women and spending the whole day with friends.  It isn't the same now that Huntsville is so packed for the day and with the kids, but I still love it.  The kids loved getting candy and good old Grandma Gooney got a lot of their candy for them:) 

The beauty of living on a peninsula is that my parents can just park their boat on the beach and we can go out several times a day. Everyone had fun wake-boarding, skiing, and tubing. 

Little Jace had a blast for his first time, can't you tell? I think he's probably the first 4-week old we've had on this boat.
