I can't believe that is has almost been a year. Claire's birthday is in just 11 days. I so often wonder what she thinks everyday. What goes through there minds as they start out in this chaotic world? What is she picking out of all of this and retaining? I sure hope that I am giving her all that is good. I know that I do nothing but try. What I know now is she is an amazing little girl. She is a sponge for knowledge. She fills my heart each and every day. I can't wait to celebrate her first birthday with her!
