Four Months of Sweetness

It is so hard to believe that our baby Claire is already 4 months old. She is so sweet and fun -and besides episodes with mean gas or acid reflux - she is very delightful. Claire is quite a social little lady; she will smile at most anyone, though she prefers to be held by those with whom she is most familiar. She adores her daddy and can't get enough of her big brother. She loves to watch John David play and entertain and often smiles simply when I say his name (may be coincidence, but I believe it's purely intentional!)

Although she is tiny (we think so, at least), Claire is very strong. She loves to stay moving from one activity to another and prefers to be in the upright position. Claire definitely wants to be where the action is, and if you are around her, she wants to hear what you have to say. David was watching her - it's been a couple months now - and called from the kitchen "Why is she upset?" He knew she had just been fed, changed, etc. "You're not talking to her!" I replied from the other room. The female word bank is definitely larger than that of males from the very get go! :)

Like I mentioned, she loves the men in her life, but it is no doubt that she and I are already best friends. Time spent with sweet Claire is so precious. I love our time of bonding and getting to know one another, and it only makes me look forward to our relationship as she grows. By God's grace, it will be a special one. I am so grateful for the relationship that I have with my own mother, and I pray for one so close with my Claire.

I wanted to share a few pictures from the past month. Though I've already shared a lot, here are some more of my favorites.

We love you, sweet baby Claire, and we praise the Lord for your life each day! May you grow into a godly woman who fears the Lord, has compassion for others, and radiates His glory.

She has grown so fast! What a sweet blessing she is! I'm so grateful for the time I've been able to spend with her over the last four months. :)

Please forgive me for not checking in recently. I think of you SO often. Claire is so beautiful, just like her mommy.

Thank you for sharing your heart as you raise your precious son. Each time you post regarding John David I am so blessed and challenged by your trust in our God and your love for your son. I was reminded in my study this week of the eternal blessing that comes in the form of an earthly thorn. For when we have sadness or challenges here on earth and take them before our Heavenly Father we find that "better is one day in His courts that thousands elsewhere." I know you know this well. God is using your family in great ways for His kingdom. I can only imagine the great things He has in store for JD. All glory to His name!

Much love, my friend.

I don't know how I managed to miss this sweet blog entry until now. I so enjoyed reading all about little Claire's unique characteristics and her sweet personality. LOVED the photos. A friend of mine is sitting here with me as I was reading your blog and she is just raving about how "pretty" your little girl is. And, we both agree that she is definitely NOT "chunky"! Love you!
