Carlsbad Beach

Wednesday we went to the beach for a little while and then went over to Uncle Jim's for pizza. It was so fun. We wish we could have gotten there a little earlier. Clara was just starting to get used to it when we decided to leave.

Birthday Party

It was so fun to have some of the family here for Clara's birthday. It was tight in our little apartment but we sure had a good time. Everyone coming made it special. I sure had a fun time making the tissue balls.

New Bed

The transition has gone better then expected but not perfectly. I still think she is to young but I wanted it to be well established by the time John gets here. I don't allow her to jump on it but she snuck it in.

Fruit Loop Necklaces

Yesterday Clara, Laura, and I made them. I wanted to get a photo of Laura with them on but she went down for a nap instead. Clara is really into jewelry so when I told her we were making necklaces she was excited. She helped put several on but certainly ate more then she helped string. The second I put Laura's on her she knew just what to do. I think the color palette that the fruit loops come in is pretty when they are both wet and dry.

Split cast-front and back

A week and a half ago Clara got her cast off. Life is good. I talked to Clara a lot for about a day before the event so she would know what would happen. That the saw would be loud but it wouldn't hurt and that they would cut it down the front and back. As a result she was perfect. The doctor looked so worried that she would cry her eyes out but she was awesome. It was interesting for me to recall the smells that came along with new and old casts. They brought back a lot of very strong memories.
