Reflecting as Clay turns 13


My Little Cowboy
These boots were meant for walking


You will have to excuse the quality of these photos. My scanner isn't hooked up and I had to take a picture of the photos. Clay was about 18 months in the photos. They are a few of my very favorite baby photos of him.
It is so hard to believe that my baby boy will be a teenager. Clay is my calm, quite, soft spoken child. He always has a ready smile on his face. He was such a good baby. He liked to take two naps a day. It actually scared me at first. His older brother is our Energizer bunny, so to have a baby that liked to sleep was shocking. Up until a few months ago he went to bed early like a little old man. You never had to tell him twice to go to bed.
He is also my daredevil. He has no fear and will try anything at least once. Sometimes I just can't bare to look. He is always ready to give a helping hand. He loves to take things apart and put them back together. He loves to help his dad with odd jobs around the house. He is truly a blessing to us.

We love you Clay! Happy 13th Birthday!


Love,

Momma, Daddy, Josh and Ana Claire
