Playtime with Clara

18 Nov

I’ve spent the day hanging out with my girl, organizing the house, and prepping food for Joel’s birthday dinner tomorrow.  We’re having a few friends over for dinner to celebrate the big 3-1.

But in the middle of all that, I had some playtime with my Clara this morning.  And I even pulled out the camera, because clearly I haven’t done that enough. No really.  I’ve been very slack.  I have taken at least one picture a day with my iPhone.  While I’m glad to have them, they hardly compare to the photos I can take with my real camera.  So, today I started playing catch up.  I even edited them the same day.

Gasp!

A quick note of explaination – the gigantic bear in some of those pictures came from Kelli and Brandon.  They gave it to Clara before she was born, and I had this brilliant idea to use it as a scale for a picture of her each month.  Well, I was too out of it to do it when we got home from the hospital, and I missed the 1 month picture, but I thought I’d try it today, as it’s close to 2 months now (can you believe it??).  Clara FREAKED out, and wouldn’t stop crying.  I don’t know if she was scared of the bear, or if the fuzziness was just a weird feeling on her skin or what, but she cried and cried and cried.

And I took pictures anyway.  Cause I’m a mean mom like that.

Enjoy.

    Well I’m glad you’ve found a use for the unnecessarily large bear! 😉 Hopefully she’ll get used to it and not be scared of it for the rest of her life! I can’t believe how big she’s getting, she doesn’t look like a newborn any more!

    She has so many expressions. I love it.
