    The first photo was taken two years ago this morning, right after Clementine made her way out into the world. The second photo was taken this morning, at play-group, right before eating birthday cupcakes with all her little friends… Clementine is absolutely amazing and I’m extremely lucky to have her in my life. I tried to write a post about her, and what these last two years with her have been like, but I just couldn’t capture how I feel about her in words. I decided to just share these pictures of her instead… Hopefully someday I’ll find the words.

    Happy birthday, Clementine! And I’m glad Mark held you upside down before the cupcakes, not after.

    To clarify, she actually said, “Two old,” but it sounded like, “Too old.” She’s not that pessimistic yet.

    I vote for the young Clem stamp. That’s how the fans want to remember her.

    I’m thinking Tangerine or Kumquat for your next one…

    Our own Clementine is about to turn one in another week. I hope she’s as cute at two as your Clementine is. The year has gone by incredibly quickly…

    How about a “Battle of the Clementines”? We can have them compete, head to head, in a series of competitions. We can take bets. We can sell merchandise. It could be huge.

    There’s an old Chinese saying: “You can’t catch flies with your mouth closed.”

    Happy (late) birthday Clementine! Two years already? Man, I’m getting old when I barely notice two years go by.

    And she already has a musical career! This is from the Metro Times

    Not many labels would be jumping to sign a band like Bottom, an all-female trio obsessed with sludge and dissonance. Plus, their drummer’s name is Clementine.

    O.K. — I met her in person today and I have to admit she is pretty darn cute… And brave around fake talking crows…
