Claire is FIVE! It's hard to believe that it has really been five years.
I'm amazed at how much she has changed in just the past year. Her speech has improved so much and when she is playing with her toys, she is having them "talk" to each other. Since a lot of her toys are related to tv shows, she sometimes will have her toys act out an episode that she has seen recently. She is very independent and once she makes up her mind, there is no changing it. She can recognize lots of sight words already. She wants to tell us about life and tries so hard to express how she feels or what she wants to do. When she & I come home from somewhere and we walk into the house, so yells "Daddy, we're home!"
