Ever since we brought Clara home from the hospital, her most frequently heard nickname has been “Clara-bug.” If she’s sleeping, she’s a sleeping-bug, if she’s bouncing in her jumper, she’s a bouncing-bug, if she’s snuggling, she’s a snuggle-bug, if she’s wiggling, she’s a wiggle-bug. Well, you get the idea. All day long, Clara-bug is getting called some sort of a bug. So, it seemed fitting that for her first Halloween, she’d be a ladybug.
We’ve had a busy day! This morning we went to our last mom’s group/playdate for the winter. We were missing one of our friends who had a cold, but we got some cute photos of these three babies all together. I’ll miss seeing them the next couple of months. By the time March rolls around, they’ll all be toddling around on their feet!
After a long afternoon nap, Clara and I did a little arts and crafts

And then we took a few more photos.

This evening we went and visited a few folks, and stopped by Sweet Mama and Big Daddy’s. Clara’s too young to really trick or treat, but we enjoyed stopping by and seeing a few sweet friends and letting them get a glimpse at our sweet-bug. (See, that’s how the bug naming thing works.)

After such a busy day, Clara was ready to slip into her ladybug pajamas and read a story before bedtime.

She’s sleeping soundly now. And her Daddy is eating all her candy.
