Trying SO hard...

Today Claire and I spent time at home. At lunch Claire practiced eating with a fork. She practically refuses to eat unless she has a fork or spoon in her hand. This makes breakfast, lunch and dinner a very long process. I am posting a video of her using her fork. After her nap we played outside... I can't wait for the cold weather tommorow! I'm not ready for summer yet!

I have a question for a few of you (those of you that read my blog that do not have kids.) Is it boring to read about what someones kid does on a daily basis? I love reading about what my friends kids are doing... but sometimes I wonder if that is just because I can relate. Do you wonder to yourself why a kid using a fork is so fascinating, or why i am constantly trying to get Claire to make a monkey noise? Just wondering... i want your honest opinions on this. I know that I haven't had a kid for that long, but this was never something I thought about when I didn't have kids. Does that make sense?

Okay, this video made me laugh real hard! I know it's not supposed to be funny, yet still I laugh. It's just so Claire- she is so determined. You can even see that at one point she thinks about using her hand and then decides that is too easy. She is such a funny kid and makes me laugh! :)

Emily,
I LOVE reading about Claire! She is such a cutie and it is fun to watch her! I love it--do not stop posting about her. Besides, even though I don't have kids, I post about my dogs.
Hope you guys have a good weekend! We are going skiing tomorrow to enjoy all this new Colorado snow!

I don't have kids---I don't think about forks and monkey noises. But, I should----Claire helps me remember those cute, precious things. When was the last time I realized how great a fork is? The videos and stories of her help me remeber how God made us so beautiful, and I need to recognize that more. So keep posting please!
