Claire Bear turns 2

 On Monday Claire turned 2 years old. We enjoyed a nice day at home (mom and Sophie were a little under the weather), and had a fun party that evening. Claire is a ball of energy. She is spunky, hysterical, strong willed, stubborn, sweet, cuddly, and extremely loving. She surprises me every day with her budding vocabulary and the things she says. My favorite phrase as of late is "The dentist is very, VERY scary!" We went yesterday and it was not a pleasant experience for her, even though she got nothing done. She just didn't want to see mommy with a bib on lying down on a table with someone else  brushing her teeth. In retrospect the experience was pretty funny. While there I will admit I was very stressed with her screaming beside me and me thinking would you hurry up so I can pick up my screaming baby?

Sweet Claire wants to be big so bad. She has been expressing or demanding rather to sleep in a "big girl bed" for the past several weeks. I have resisted because that means putting all three kids in the same room to sleep and well we all know what a party that's going to be. I might consider it in a few months, so for now she is going to just have to fight me for a while. I have a feeling Claire is going to be a "pick your battles" child for me. She refuses to sit in her high chair and she wants to sit in a booster seat like her big sister and brother. She also wants to go to school, play dates, and does not want to take a nap and pretty much loves to do whatever they are doing. I think she would be happy if the next few years would zoom by so she could really be a BIG girl. For me I want her to stay my little Claire for a while. I am not quite ready for her to grow up so fast.
