Our Baby

2 Years 1 Month

New Pictures added on September 16

Clara is now two years and one month old. She is still growing rapidly, but has definitely hit the "terrible twos." She has a mind of her own and is quite stubborn when she doesn't get her way. She still enjoys reading and playing with her toys and stuffed animals (and with the real animals, when they'll let her close). Her new favorite movie is Cinderella. She likes both the Disney version and the Rodgers and Hammerstein version - it goes in spurts. She is climbing a lot and has become a bit of a daredevil. She starts in the toddler room at the CSDC this month - a big step for her. Luckily many of her friends will be in the same room.

Clara sits in the bathroom.

Hey, it's comfortable in here. You got a problem with that?

Maybe I'll be an interior decorator.

Clara always sings when she's playing. We've tried for quite a while to capture it on video, but she usually stops when the camera comes out. Finally, she cooperated, resulting in these two clips.

Clara continues singing while rearranging various pieces of cloth. (Video - 7.2 MB)

Clara tries on Mama's shoes.

How does anyone get up with these things on?

And walking is pretty difficult too!

Look, I made it to the end of the hall.

Clara walks with Mama's shoes and tries other toys on her feet. Not much sound in this one. (Video - 7.5 MB)

Clara plays the piano.

She likes the feel of the keys as well as the sound.

Trying to imitate Daddy (I really don't play that way).

Look how fast I can play this part!

Just wait till my hands get bigger...

A close up.

Clara piles Daddy with lots of stuff.

And Teddy goes on top.

Clara gets some new stuffed animals.

All the Pooh characters - here's Rabbit.

Look, Mama! Piglet!

Tigger looks so funny.

Playing with Tigger.

There's nothing quite like Pooh-Bear.

Clara wears a dress her Grandma Betty gave her.

Of course, you can't ever get her attention when you want it.

Take a bow!
