Clara: 16 Months

It has been so fun to watch Clara grow up over the last few months. She is starting to seem less like a baby and more like a little girl.

She loves to be around other people, and seldom will stay in a room by herself (unless she's trying to play with or eat something she's not allowed to have, in which case she makes a beeline for the nearest exit).

She adores Samantha, Brett and Jesse and can say each of their names. She also adores Nathan, but she sees him more as competition right now rather than an adoring big brother.

She also loves her parents, Grandma, Nana & Papa, and her Uncle Jeff & Aunt Lindsey.

Clara is a very happy girl who smiles and laughs a lot. But when she's not happy about something she will let us know with her dirty looks. Like this:

She spends a lot of time with her two left fingers in her mouth. It's her own unique version of thumb-sucking.

Clara loves to sing. She can actually hum or babble to recognizable tunes (ABCD is one of her favourites. She also loves the Popcorn Song and I Am a Child of God.) Clara will sit on your lap for as long as you want her to if you keep her entertained with songs.

Clara is very mischievous and curious. She likes to explore things and play with anything other than her toys. She empties our kitchen cupboards on a regular basis and she also loves to sneak into the dirty clothes baskets and carry around dirty washcloths (eeeewwww!)
