In early October, Mike's parents came for a visit. While Clare has spent time with relatives before, she is just coming to an understanding of what it means to be the center of attention. I think she really has a knack for it. She was quite the hostess while they were her. She took them on a walk to the post office, drug them up and down the stairs a million times to share her toys with them, gave them plenty of opportunities to practice their reading skills, and doled out the love on numerous occassions.
