This is a blog to update all of our many friends and family from all over the map on what is going on with our little one. It will also be great for us to look back on to see how much she has grown and progressed. I think she will have fun seeing it too one day. Feel free to leave Clover a comment.
Clover is now Two!

Clover's first visit with Santa
I was hoping for the Santa picture of all Santa pictures. She was in a really good mood and we took her to Santaland at the mall. It was the first time we took her out in her stroller and she was having a great time. While we were in line waiting to see Santa, we saw a price list of the different packages and sample pictures. In the sample picture, this santa had a great big warm smile that made me want to sit in his lap....the girl in his lap was so giddy and happy. We were asked to order the package before seeing the pictures and if we didn't want them, we didn't have to get them. We got up there and Clover was in very good mood. After one picture, the photographer's camera froze and it went downhill from there. They told me to hold her while they rebooted their stuff. After a few minutes, I was told to give her back to Santa. When I tried, he snapped at me and told that they were rebooting the system. I told him they said it was fixed and he told me again in a hick voice (and louder and slower so I would understand) that they were rebooting. Then when he realized they were up and going, he took her. I think Clover may have gotten a bad vibe from this Santa because after this, she was not happy and didn't really want anything to do with this anymore. This was the best pose. And just look at Santa..he looks like he is sitting on a subway train, trying not to make eye contact with anyone. As unhappy as I was with the ordeal, Johnny seemed pleased that she got to see Santa and we got her first pic, good or bad...that made me feel a lot better about it. We still had a nice time, getting out with the baby and browsing the stores. Afterwards, we drove to old Decatur and looked at the decorated houses and the pretty lights.
