Zephaniah 3:17

We have finally found Claire's life verse! After almost 16 months we finally found a bible verse that we will teach her and encourage her to claim as her own. This will be her special verse that she can hide in her heart and lean upon.

The LORD your God is with you,
he is mighty to save.
He will take great delight in you,
he will quiet you with his love,
he will rejoice over you with singing.
Zephaniah 3:17

Above is a family photo from Easter (Claire's little brother or sister is also starting to make his/her presence known too!) as well as a few from our recent vacation to North Carolina. We took our first family car vacation - we packed our car to the brim and hit the road for a week! Claire did great in the car - she is a great traveler (thank goodness - she doesn't really have a choice considering who her parents are). We definitely had a our Griswald moments but overall it was a wonderful time and we made some great memories. Claire loved the pool! I was a little surprised since she hasn't been in the pool since last summer and she tends to be scared of big bathtubs but she jumped right in (literally!) and had a blast!
It seems like all of a sudden one day she seems so much older! Her newest word is "more" which she uses when ever she wants anything as in "more, more, more" which really sounds like "mo, mo, mo". Hmm. She also says a lot of "no, no, no" or if she is very serious just "NO". She loves to give kisses especially to her Daddy. She starts asking for him as soon as she wakes up in the morning and doesn't stop until he comes home in the evening. Every so often during the day she looks at me and says "Da Da?".
Claire is a great eater now and likes some pretty interesting things. A few of her latest favorites : pickles, black olives and hummus. She loves Chick-fil-a (just like her mommy) and is so cute as she dips her chicken nuggets in ketchup very carefully and says "mmmm" after each bite. Too cute!
