Happy Birthday Clarabella! I cannot believe you are SEVEN years old today! You have grown up into such a wonderful and sweet girl! We are so excited to see you in a few weeks and hope you have a very special birthday!
Thinking back I have SO many memories of you…..
I remember so vividly your big blue eyes streaming tears down your cheeks the first time I babysat you….it broke my heart to see you cry so hard!
Your sweet little voice singing the song your mom had made up to help you learn how to spell your name….C-L-A-R-A-B-E-L-L-A is a lot of letters for a little girl! You have always loved to sing and love to perform.
I have played Cinderella SO many times with you…and have always played ‘Prince Charming’ so you could be Cinderella!
I remember the weekend you learned to ride your two-wheeler and how proud you were.
I will always treasure the weekend that I had you and your sister and all of the fun we had dressing up, going to the park, and just having ‘girl’ time!
How excited you were when we went crayfishing and you weren’t scared at all to grab a hold of a crayfish and show it off!
I remember listening to you read ‘Dick and Jane’ and being blown away by how diligent and smart you were!
You were such an awesome helper with wedding invitations and favors and sat so quietly for hours putting stamps on the invitations!
You and your sister were the BEST flowergirls a bride could ask for! You were so grown up, so well-behaved, and looked so beautiful….
Bob and I feel so blessed to have you in our lives!
And of course…another trip down memory lane 🙂
