Celebrating Claire---Part II: The Gifts

The cake was just the first of the treats for Miss Claire. We took her into our family room and she was handed her birthday gifts. She looked at them but wasn't sure what to do. Her cousins tried to encourage her to rip open the paper. Of course she ripped one piece and was then fascinated with it.

Eventually (and with some help from Mommy) we opened her Pop-up!!!

Claire loves this! She hasn't mastered actually pushing the buttons to make the animals pop up, but she loves to watch them pop up and she wants to yank them OUT. And she loves pushing them back down. Thank you, Mishlers!

Next Claire opened her dump truck!

Claire especially like the little man who drives the truck. We've named him Leroy. She likes to take him out (occasionally chew on him) and put him back in the truck. I show her how to drive it around and put her blocks and other toys in the back and dump them out. She still prefers Leroy. Thanks, Grandma and Grandpa!

Next came the corn popper!

This is about twice the height of Claire, but she still wants to try and push it around. And she is one determined little girl!! Thank you, Grandma and Grandpa!!!

Uncle Greg and Aunt Jen and cousins Zach, Ben, and Seth were kind enough to give Claire money, which Mommy put in her piggy bank to save for a rainy day. Thank you, Wingards!

And Grandma and Grandpa blessed Claire with the most beautiful little rocking chair I've ever seen...

(Picture To Come)

So all in all, this was a very joyous day for Claire. She is extremely blessed to be loved so much by so many.
