One year old

Seems hard to believe, but today is Clara's 1st birthday. She had a rough start (hard birth, 5 days in NICU, cried the first 3 months) but she has turned into a very happy, silly, active little girl. Here's an update of what she is up to:
  • Walking, running, climbing everywhere. She started walking at 10 months and hasn't slowed down.
  • Not really talking yet. She will sometimes repeat mama and dada. She "ruffs" for dogs and "mmm" for cows. 
  • She is very emotional and quite dramatic. If she is happy then she is all smiles, but when she is upset she is sobbing on the ground.
  • She is a mama's girl for sure. If she is tired, hungry, upset, etc. and sees me, she will cry until I pick her up. 
  • She still sucks her thumb, mainly when she is tired or upset.
  • She's a great sleeper. 10 hours at night and usually a 2 hour nap. 
  • Loves to eat! She eats just as much as Esther does. She eats pretty much everything we give her.
  • She is still a big girl. She wears 18-24 month clothes. Her 12 month dr. checkup is next week, so we will get her official stats then.
We got Clara a little rocking chair for her 1st birthday (like we did for Esther).

It is hard to believe she went from this
