I was really tired today. I could barely finish eating.

January 29th, 2007 Feelin’ Fine

I am recovering from my cold. I was able to go back to daycare this afternoon. I have a little cough but I feel much better and I am able to get around the house more.

January 26th, 2007 My First Trip To The Emergency Room

Mary in her hospital gown in the waiting room of the hospital.  She is sitting in mommy's lap and looking back over her left shoulder. Mary standing at a magazine end table looking up and smiling.  Her hands are palm down on the table and she is looking up and smiling. I got sick at daycare the other day. My mommy and daddy got really worried because I was vomiting and had a lot of diarrhea so they took me to the emergency room. We left at around 6:30 PM and we didnt’ get back until late, like after 10:30. I think that is the latest I have ever stayed up. I was very tired.

Mary in front of mommy.  Mommy is holding her hand so that she can walk. Mary holding up a Sports Illustrated magazine. When I got there they gave me my own ‘gown’ that I got to wear around the hospital. It was a little revealing but it breathed well. While we were there I paced around the waiting room, because I heard that is what you are supposed to do. After I had enough pacing I decided to check out the magazines. You know, to have something to chew on. But most of the magazines in the waiting room were older than me. I mean, really, how am I supposed to keep up with current events?

Mary in front of a table looking directly into the camera.  Mommy is behind her looking off to the right. Mary looking at mommy with her hand on mommy's upper arm as if asking her an intimate question. Eventually we got called back and I met a nice nurse who talked with me a bit. I got a little fussy (nosey) so mommy and daddy took turns walking me around in their arms so that I could see what everyone else was there for. After I played a little the doctor came over and decided that I have the Rotavirus. It is not too serious but I have to stay home from daycare and I miss all my friends. Mommy says that I can’t go because I will catch them my cold, or something. Mommy and daddy are trying to give me lots of fluids so that I stay hydrated.

Mary on her belly on a hospital gurny.  She is looking at the camera and the hospital gown is flowing open revealing her diaper.  She looks frustrated. Mary in front of mommy looking up at her questioningly. So I stayed up vomiting last night and I am home from daycare today also. My pictures may not be as fun for the next few days. I will try to make up for it later.

January 23rd, 2007 Having My Own Picnic

I had a picnic in the kitchen today. I ate my food by myself. I can’t be bothered to wait so I drank my milk while trying to pick up all my bits of food and put them in my mouth.

January 22nd, 2007 Struttin’ in my Robe

Mary standing with mommy holding her.  She is wearing a silk robe that is pink with black trim.  She has a big smile on her face and the right sleeve is falling off. I tried on my new robe over the weekend. My Aunt Corinne got me this when she was in Vietnam.

It is definitely better than crawling without a robe.Mary in just a diaper.  The picture is from floor level head on.  She is looking at the camera.

January 18th, 2007 Mary’s Table

Mary had fun playing with her wooden table today. This was a gift from her Great-Aunt Maureen, and her great-cousins Natalie and Maggie.

Mary bent over a table about the size of a stool with her name in wooden block letters.  Her hands are palm down on the table and she is leaning over the table looking directly into the camera. Mary on her belly with blocks strewn about the floor.

January 17th, 2007 Me an Kate

Kate and I got together on Sunday and we played. We played dress-up with our hats. It was really fun and I can’t wait to play again.

January 15th, 2007 Climbing

I’m starting to learn to pull myself up on things. It seems that all the fun stuff to play with is on tables. Look out Ma and Pa!

January 15th, 2007 Monkey Trap!

Daddy and I helped out with the laundry today. Then I got stuck. Daddy laughed and said that it was a monkey trap and that he caught a monkey. He said that my cousin Ashley would love this game.
