Claire Bear,

Even though you have been experiencing heavy emotions lately and can arch your back and scream like nobody’s business, you are also my lovely little one and I adore you. We all went out for dinner last night because Mommy was too lazy to make fish tacos (you can’t have them anyway, so no loss to you, right?) and as we packed up to leave the restaurant you made me fall in love with you all over again. You blew kisses to the waitress and then waved and said your breathy little “bye” to everyone we passed on the way out. You are precious and adorable and I LOVE YOU!
