It was so sweet. At one point we were talking to Clara about how there had been two babies but one had died. And she asked with a serious little face "so we can't have it?" Too precious! Thankfully though, we are able to tell her that there is still a baby there that appears healthy and well, and she hasn't taken the news hard at all.
In other updates from here - we have ALL been sick this last week with the flu... but are blessed to be on the mend. Cute story from yesterday. Realizing that Clara hadn't had anything to eat in a long time, I asked her if she would like some mashed potatoes or rice (some of the leftovers that were available). She responded "A crepe would be fine." Knows what she wants! :-)
I love this picture! It was captured a couple weeks ago at chapel. First a word about Clara's unusual outfit! :-) She wanted to wear one of her flower girl dresses to chapel and Mommy's wedding veil, and her wise Daddy decided "Hey, why not?" As for the actual picture, Clara said she wanted hold Hilkiah and he was willing to oblige her mothering. I believe one of my friends said "You need a picture of that, Gracie". And I'm sure glad I was able to capture the moment! :-)
