PLAYING THE TRUMPET - Girlfriend is still trying with all her might to make noise with her trumpet. She has come so far (she can pick it up with two hands, bring to mouth and press the buttons) but doesn't quite understand how to blow. She literally did this for 30 minutes one day.
ROCKING THE PONYTAIL - Since her hair is actually really long on top (well, it's long all over but you just can't tell b/c of all the curls), I tried to pull it together in a top pony tail. It worked. Kind of. Ha! And no - I don't think that ridiculously large bow matches her outfit, I was simply trying to see if her itty bitty ponytail would hold a bow. I do not plan for her to sport that thing in public. No worries.
And here I tried pigtails. Didn't work so well. Her expression says it all.
READING BOOKS WITH DADDY - Once Brandon is home from work, this is her favorite spot. She will crawl over to her book cubby and hit them (her way of showing us what she wants, she cannot yet pull the books out on her own) until Brandon comes over to read with her.
LOOKING OUT THE WINDOW - If I ever walk out of the room for a minute and come back and Clara has moved out of sight, 99.9% of the time I can find here right here.

We have had A LOT going on since our beach trip last weekend, but all of that is another post for another day. Have a great week!
