Happy 4th Birthday Claire!

Dear Claire,
From the moment I found out I was expecting a second baby, I was thrilled. We had our precious little boy, and I couldn't wait to add to our family. The day I found out you were a girl, I cried because I was so happy. I really couldn't believe we would be blessed with a sweet baby girl to complete our family. I immediately started buying all the bows and dresses I could find!
During your first year, you were very laid back. What choice did you have with such a rambunctious brother? You just fit right in and went along with the flow. Before too long, we started to recognize your little personality. You are cautious and sometimes even a bit shy. What you see is what you get with you! It is easy to tell your mood because you never hide your emotions. I prayed for a girly-girl and that's what I got although you still like to play in the dirt!
On your fourth birthday, we celebrate you! Some of the things you enjoy are being a mommy to your Baby Sarah, playing dress-up (especially make-up), reading books, and swimming. I am so thankful to be your mommy, and I pray that you will love Jesus and seek His will for your life. I can't wait to see what He has planned for you!
When you told me the other day that I am your best friend, my heart melted. You have always been my cuddle bug, our ladybug, and of course, our princess.
I love you with all of my heart forever and ever,
