My Claire-Bear is one year old. Here is an excerpt from our baby girl’s first year. There are a lot of pictures, but there are dozens and dozens more that I didn’t post. The first picture in the chair on the left was taken at 10 days old, and the one on the right was taken on her birthday.

How did we get from this…. to that?

Her first steps in October…

These last two were taken on her birthday…

Happy Birth Day to my sweet Claire. I love you, now and always, no matter what.

This baby girl was so adorable. It was obvious that her mommy loves her, and she loves her mommy. She didn’t know what to think of me at first, but I played Peek-a-boo with her for a bit, and she warmed up to me pretty fast. It was cold and rainy outside, but we had a blast during her indoor 6-month session. Look at her rosy cheeks and gummy smile!

We took quite a hike back into the woods to do this little session with Claire. She’s growing up so fast, and soon she won’t need the bucket to help her sit up. Pretty soon she’ll be crawling (then walking, talking, reading, driving…). But for now, she’s still my baby girl. My Claire-Bear.

Dear Claire,

You are two months old… I just can’t believe it! You are getting bigger everyday. You are smiling a lot now, and starting to give a hint of a laugh. You “talk” to us, and we love your little coos and noises. You love to be moving, whether it’s riding in the car, sitting in the swing, being in the rocking chair with me or daddy or Nana, or hanging out with me in the Moby wrap. You do not like to stop!

Daddy put this onesie on you last night, and I cracked a huge grin when I saw you in it. It’s so perfect – you really are my sunshine! You are the one who lights up my day, even in this dreary gray wintertime. You are my beautiful little ray of sun. I love you so very, very much.

This little one was my last session of 2011, and her newborn session was the perfect ending to a great year. And what a perfect beginning for these brand new parents! She is such a sweet little sleeping beauty. I look forward to many more newborn sessions just like hers!!
