such a snuggle bug. love this big time.
especially on a day when we get two inches of snow..... and no, tomorrow is not december 1st, but may 1st. sigh. we put on some gloves and played in the snow this morning. didn't last long, but did it, just to say we did.
can i just tell you how fun this stage with claire is? she is understanding pretend, babies, princesses, and imagining. she comes up with crazy things to tell us about, and loves to play with her babies. she sometimes has quite the temper, but usually only when she has way surpassed the tired mark. she wants to do things with me, and i keep having to remind myself that this will not last forever, so i drop whatever i am doing and just play. she is a total sweetheart, and loves to share her m&ms she earns for going potty. and feed her dollies. my heart melts when she does this.
miss claire is super talkative (well, i guess she always has been) now, and i have had a huge relief- i understand most everything she says, when sometimes other people don't. growing up, i always got worried when i would babysit and not understand what the kids were saying, and the parents would have to explain what they meant. but i understand! and i have to giggle, because sometimes i think she sounds a little British.
speaking of British, how much did you love kate's dress? oh i loved it. it. was. perfect. i didn't care to see much else, but her dress, oh that dress! so timeless. classy. elegant. i could watch her walk down the aisle again and again. just to see the dress. and drool...... but as i told my mom this morning, poor girl, her husband is already balding!
and now, i wish for a sunnier tomorrow. may 1st, will you please bring some sunshine? i don't want to wait three weeks until st. louis to enjoy.
