30*


Dear Claire,
Before Mr. Baby was born, I worried about how it would be for him. To be compared to his sparkly big sister. I wondered if there would be enough love (there is), and I also worried about how it would be to be second. I knew that there would never be as many photos of him without you and that sort of thing.

He hasn't told me for sure yet, but I feel pretty certain that you are his favorite person ever. Occasionally he forsakes you for the Milk Lady, but always it is you that can make him smile. It's clear that he will not suffer for having you in his life. He's a lucky little guy. We all are, Clairegirl.

Love,
Mama
*Almost every photo of you this month is taken from behind. You can't seem to sit still. The photos aren't as cute as they were when you were small, but the things we get to do are way better (example: watching you get your first kiss, hearing you use the word hilarious for the first time, how you decided not only take your shoes and socks off when you get home, but your pants as well, seriously, who taught you that?).

I love how little brother adores big sister. It gives me hope for my little brother and big sister!

Happy 30th, Claire! You don't look a day over 2 1/2 ;)
