Claire and I slept in this morning so the big kids were up first. When we woke up Molly brought this little shirt in and said "I made Claire something while y'all were sleeping." My sweet girl! She has been telling me lately that she really wants to make Claire something. I asked her for the details about her project and this is what she said: "I used some of my play fabric and some lace that I found. I cut sleeves and a neck hole, sewed it up and sewed on the lace. Sewing the lace on was my favorite part." I am always amazed by what my kids can do when I'm not "helping". I think that we parents may not give these munchkins enough credit. She did a pretty good job for not using a pattern!
I love the age difference between these two. Being nine years older Molly gets to really "mama" Claire, and she LOVES it. She enjoys taking care of her, dressing her, and even changing diapers. I love to see her enjoy her baby sister, and it's so helpful too! I love how Claire fits in so perfectly. God really knows what he's doing doesn't he? (Which reminds me, I will have an adoption update in the next post for those of you who have been asking. :)
This little guy has been a big help too! He is really taking over a lot of the outdoor chores around here. Most days lately he feeds all of the animals (that is a big chore around here), collects the eggs, and brings in things from the garden all on his own. He's loving all of the outdoor work with daddy too.
He wanted me to show you guys his "moon" pepper that he picked this morning from our little garden. I need to take pictures of him in his big garden!
I'll be back with an adoption update. :) xo, Sam
