This last week we celebrated our sweet Clarabelle’s 7th birthday. Every time a birthday rolls around it hits me all over again how fast my children are growing up. I would love to be able to slow down time, but as so many older, wiser parents have told me, this is impossible.
Clarabelle, Clairy Beary, Claire, Claire Bear, or Bear Bear, however you know her, is now 7 years old. Claire is extremely observant and notices everything that is going. Every detail in the house she has committed to memory. She is extremely creative and is always cutting up something, gluing something, or coloring. Clarabelle must get her homework done every night or she gets extremely worried. Wherever in the world we are, Clarabelle makes friends. Starting school this year for Clarabelle had no problem, she had several friends within a week, even though they didn’t even speak the same language. We only have to be somewhere for about 10 minutes before Clarabelle has a new friend. The people that Claire loves she loves with all of her heart. Our sweet girl loves everything girly: dresses, make up, pink, purble, princesses. She loves them all.
I am so thankful for my sweet girl and I am so blessed to be her mom. I cannot wait to see all these beautiful characteristics in her blossom and for her to become a more and more beautiful young woman. I cannot wait to see the person that God has created her to be.
