In the last month or two it has become pretty clear that you are a very smart little girl. Your mother and I can almost watch your little mind solving problems and noticing things that you just passed by before. We watch through the two little windows that are your eyes. Your eyes lock onto something and your little brow furrows as you process new experiences. About a week ago your mother was blowing bubbles and you would try to catch them. Pretty soon you just blurted, “Bubbles.” Clear as day. Your mom and I just looked at each other, wide eyed, “Did she really just say that.” Now just a few days later you have quit trying to catch the bubbles and moved on to strictly bubble popping. When you walk out of the room I can say, “Claira you better come back here.”,and I can hear your feet do an about face and in a few seconds you will be waddling back to me. You are becoming a little girl so quickly. It is wonderful watching your mind grow and come to life with new discoveries, but it is a little sad watching our infant fade away. I know this is not the last time I will wonder how time can go so fast, I just wish I could find a way to make it go a little slower. You are such a wonderful little girl and I love you so much.
