Clara just brings so much to our family. Even at 8 months, she has so much to offer everyone. Her sisters just adore her so much. Clara started crawling last week and the girls just love it! Clara loves her sisters so much. All the girls have to do is look at her and she just bursts out in laughter. It is such a special gift to watch our three little angels grow together.
I love waking up next to Clara. This morning, I was awake before she was. She started to stir and I knew she'd be waking soon. I just looked at her in awe. My sweet princess is 8 months old. Then, she opened her ginormous blue eyes, gazed at me for a second, and then gave me the most beautiful smile. What a way to wake up in the morning!
Her sleep is staying steady. She isn't the best sleeper, but she isn't the worst either. Clara is really attached to me, and I really think she wakes at night to make sure I am still around. I don't mind...as much I would love a full night sleep, I know she won't be like this forever, and I'll long for the days where they just want to be close to you. We joke around because if someone is holding Clara, and I walk by, but don't pick her up, she will scream for me until I take her. I love you clingy Clara!
It's so bittersweet. I miss our little baby, but I am loving the little girl Clara is becoming! She is such a doll. She is truly transforming into a little toddler! Each day, she learns something new, and I love watching it! This summer is going to be so much fun with our girls!
