Charlotte Clayton. A beautiful name for a beautiful girl.
Charlotte is five.
005. 5. five.
I thought she was going to come quickly, but she took her time.
She weighed 8 pounds, 9 ounces and we all fell in love instantly.
This girl is sassy. Ohhhhhhhh is she sassy!
She is also beautiful.
She has the most beautiful complexion – her skin is the perfect shade of brown and her eyes are like chocolate pudding. Her one eyebrow can’t be beat and her lashes go on for days.
She loves her sisters more than anything and without being asked will hold the little ones’ hands or help them reach something they need.
She is such a good friend. B has her heart, but her other friends come in a close second: Wyatt, Hayden, Leighton, Mackenzie, Zephryn, Timothy…so many more. She speaks so nicely about all of them and is always so thoughtful in her words.
She’s a smart little thing. She knows what’s going on around her and it’s hard to get anything past her. She’s intelligent but quietly.
She is full of emotion. When she’s mad, she is MAD. When she’s excited, her whole body moves. When she’s happy, her face lights up. When she’s sad, those chocolate eyes fill with tears. She’s never boring.
Her favorite people in the universe start with: her siblings, Dawn, B, Mama and Daddy and then the rest of the family…then everyone else. And she’s not afraid to let that be known.
We are so happy she is ours. We are so lucky to have this thumb-sucking, Deedee loving, bed-stealing, backtalking, hugging, sweet girl.
Charlotte Clayton, you are a gem.
Happiest of days.
