Happy Birthday, Mary Clare!

I can't believe my baby is 5! Where did the time go? Mary Clare enjoyed a wonderful birthday party yesterday with a full house of family and friends. She is such a great big sister and good helper for Mommy. She is a "mini-me" in so many ways...from looks to personality! Five years ago, as we spent our first days home with our New Year's blessing, I couldn't have imagined the joys we have had these first 5 years of parenthood. We are so blessed!

Mary Clare, I pray that your zeal for life and your love for God continue to grow in the coming years. May you always know how precious you are to Daddy and I...our firstborn child born exactly one year after our Papal blessing. We look forward to the years to come as you discover more about this wonderful world, as we delve further into homeschooling, and as we watch you be a "little mommy" for your siblings. You are truly loved, by God and by us.

Happy 5th Birthday, Sweetheart!

My Matthew saw the picture of Mary Clare with her cake and just finished singing her a jubilant rendition of "Happy Birthday"! Too cute! We wish her the best...
