Happy Birthday, Claire!

Yesterday was the kids’ cousin’s first birthday. She is on the only cousin on Aaron’s side of the family.

Today, we went to her birthday party.

She is adorable.

It’s cute to see Lena play with someone smaller than her. When we got home, Lena said that she likes Claire because she is like Lena. “What do you mean?”, I asked. “We… both have hair.”

We tried to get a picture of the 4 of them together. Gus was ready for a nap at this point.

Reed thought watching her dig into the cake was hilarious.2014-01-11_0004

I declined her offer to share the blue frosting.

After the cake clean-up, she snuggled into her daddy’s shoulder. So cute.

When we got home, we were surprised to see a package from my sister at the door– belated Christmas gifts.

Lena had been feeling really bummed that her birthday and Christmas had past, so she was particularly excited about this surprise.
