September 27

So I’m a little late on this one…and pretty much have been neglecting the blog….I’m trying to get better about that….

But I wanted to stop in with some pictures from September 27, a very special day around here.  We celebrate it as a second birthday for Claire.  She was born on July 21, but spent 10 weeks in the NICU and finally came home on, you guessed it – September 27.  So since her first year, we’ve tried to mark the day by doing something special just with our family.  This year we took Claire to Build-A-Bear.  I have to say, she wasn’t as thrilled about the bear as we thought she would be.  In fact, the fuzzy purple bear has been laying in our office since we came home, ditched in favor of her new favorite toy – a stuffed chameleon named Pascal.  Oh well.  We had a great night and loved spending a little quality time with our special little girl.

Picking out her purple bear…

And now for some September 27 flashbacks…

Oh how far we’ve come! And since I was doing flashbacks, how’s this one?! Taken at the same spot at the zoo – circa 2010 and just last weekend:
