We were so excited that Clare got to meet her Uncle Chris and Aunt Maddy when they were here for Mary's wedding! Chris is currently serving in Afghanistan with the Army National Guard, and Maddy is attending Immaculate Conception Academy, an all-girls Catholic school in Rhode Island. I figured out why Clare likes to be held all the time: because everyone wants to hold her! Seriously, I don't think she's ever put down...unless she's crying; then you should see how quickly they try to give her back to me! Well, at least I think she's figured out that she is very loved.
