Claire at 3 1/2

Dear Claire,

You are 3 1/2 now. I can't believe how fast the time is flying.

Your favorite toy for playing is:  Your Barbie Dream house and Barbies

Your favorite toy for snuggling is:  Your night-night baby doll

Your favorite food is:  spaghetti or anything like it (lasanga, etc)

Your favorite book is:  Snow White or any Princess one or The Berenstain Bear books, which are totally fun to read!

Your favorite activity is:  Hopping on your new giant bouncy ball 

Your favorite place to go is:  Preschool! 

Your best friend is:  Tough call, you have so many friends, but I'm going to have to say Alexander at home.  Your best friend at preschool is Harper.  Your 2 neighborhood friends are Amelia and Christopher.

Something new that you're doing:  Making up silly lyrics to familiar songs without any prompting.  "The Wheels on the Bus" might be like "The dogs on the bus go Poop, Poop, Poop."  Or "Old McDonald had a baby with a wah, wah here..."

Something you've mastered:  Fully dressing yourself in matching outfits 99% of the time, including sock/shoes/coat!  Preschool certainly has made you want to get ready because you can't wait to get dressed and go! 

Something people say about you:  She is tall!  She has pretty eyes.  She looks just like you!  She talks very well.  How old is she?  She can't be 3 1/2! 

Something that you're saying is:  I'm jealous of Alex.  Can you hold me too?  Can you carry me up the stairs too? 

Something Dad and I are proud of you for:  Coming home from Preschool with a "good job stamp" every time! 

Something surprising about you:  You are shy at school and in new situations, but when you are with Mommy, you'd never know that! 

You like to make "cozy spots" which are piles of blankets and pillows and hide in them.  You also like to make your "jumping jack house" which is a big pile of blankets in Alex's room.  Then you like to run and jump into it!  Daddy and I got you a hoppy ball that you LOVE to jump on when Alex is jumping in his jumper.  You laugh at each other.  You love to love on Alex and you get jealous if we are with other small children who want to play with him.

We love you so much!  You've grown so much in the past few months!

Mommy :)

PS:  You may borrow my black high heels when you grow up, per your recent request, but I do hope you have a better sense of fashion than me.

PPS:  You also recently asked if you could live in this house when grow up.  I would love to let you live in this house when you grow up with your kids and then Daddy and I will get a house next to the Children's Museum, like you suggested.  However, the easiest solution, perhaps, is that you just get a place near the museum.  Perhaps you could work there?  Oooh!  Now that sounds fun! :)
