Claire’s little party went quite well today. I enjoyed the pirate theme. However, I lost all sense of camera discipline and now have to sort through about 360 photographs to find the few that I’d like to share. I do tend to try and avoid: "Here’s Claire opening a present. Here she is with the same present. Here she is again, but look she’s looking at the present. Here she is taking a break from that present. Oh, back to the present." And so forth.
But, it is my prerogative as a parent to take them.
However, this is worth a rush posting. Don’t let this validate your notion of being ‘special’. Alright, it’s because you’re special. Yes you.
Danielle made that. Like, herself. Personally. I grudgingly yield the Best Parent award. The Dread Pirate Claire! Yaaar!
If you haven’t wished the baby a Happy Birthday, here’s your chance to get your name of the assassination list: Congratulate Danielle on her confectionary accomplishment.
