My baby girl turned 2 and my RAK from Kristine


On Monday my baby girl turned 2…it is bittersweet!    My husband and I always wanted 4 children but with this economy and with the 3 children we already have we have decided Claire will be our last.  She  is the greatest little girl!  She is so sweet and loving with a touch of tomboy!  She takes flying leaps from furniture (she knows NO fear), gets dirty from head to toe, and likes to cuddle and watch Sesame Street.  She is my baby and always will be.   It really amazes me how unique each child is.  I love watching them grow and blossom…just wish it didn’t happen so fast!


She hated everyone staring at her…she would not SMILE!


This morning I got up did a load of laundry, threw dinner in the crock pot and then my sick baby awoke. She came down the stairs this morning and said "Mommy, where's eye?"(she just turned 2 on Monday). She started complaining of her ear hurting yesterday and her eye started gooping up last night. She woke up this morning with her eye completely matted shut. She has been fighting a cough and congestion for about 2 weeks...I think it's time to go the pedi. After wiping the goopy eye and fixing her breakfast, the mail came. I just assumed it was my xmas swap package...until I looked at the address. Then I thought...did I sign up for another swap that I forgot about ??? I opened the box and it was some wonderful goodies from Kristine! While unwrapping my wonderful goodies it brought a tear to my eye. How very Kind of her to brighten my day!  Thank You Kristine!


I hope everyone has a great weekend!

*** Happy Holidays! ***



  1. What a Beautiful little girl!! Even cuter without a smile. Oh how I wish I could snuggle and watch Sesame Street with her. My Baby girl is 18 and it went by too quickly!!

  2. What a cute little girl! They grow so quickly so enjoy every minute of raising them. Glad you had your day brightened with your package. You've been in my thoughts and prayers Heather. We have to trust that God has a plan for us all even though we can't see it sometimes. I continue to pray that the economy will turn around for our country-there are so many effected by it all. Wondered how your crafting has been coming along. Hugs!

  3. Aww, poor baby girl and mommy. A teaspoon of sugar makes the medicine go down for baby and a surprise gift package in the mail for mommy. Cherish them while they're little. Hugs~
