March 29th, 2007 Sharing

I took some first steps this past Sunday so I am really busy refining my technique. Look for a video to come out soon highlighting my fancy footwork. Until then, share something you like with someone you love.

March 27th, 2007 All

When Aunt Corinne and Grandma were visiting Aunt Corinne helped teach me how to drink from a big girl’s glass. I like water but I like juice better. Later I learned a little self defense and how to use pressure points to keep daddy in line.

March 27th, 2007 More Fun With Aunt Corinne and Grandma

Aunt Corinne on her knees bowing her head to Mary.  Corinne has a ribbon crown on and Mary is reaching up for it.These are more pictures from my fun time with Grandma Marasco and Aunt Corinne. Here you can see that Aunt Corinne and I had fun playing princesses. In this picture she is wearing the crown. I didn’t like wearing it as much as grabbing it from her head and giving it back to her. I think that a Queen shouldn’t have to wear a crown if she doesn’t want to.

Mary behind the hippo with her head back, laughing, and enjoying herself as she pushes the hippo forward.  Grandma is in the background.Mary in the foreground of the picture but just as a blur because she is moving so fast.  You can see mommy and Aunt Corinne laughing to each other in the background. Here Grandma and I are having a whole lot of fun with the hippo. This is currently my favorite toy and I love to chase every one to catch them and then bang into them with the hippo. They try to get away but I am really fast. Sometimes you can’t even see me on camera because I move so fast that I am just a blur.

March 26th, 2007 Grandma and Aunt Corinne Visit

My Grandma and my Aunt Corinne were both here over the weekend. We played a lot and they kept me busy so that Mommy and Daddy could go out for dinner.

This picture is actually from last week. But it is a good picture of my friend Kate and I eating Graham crackers.

March 21st, 2007 Running with Hippos

A close up of Mary with her hair wild and her mouth wide open in excitement.

Mary running behind the hippo with her hair up and a mess and her mouth open in excitement. A sid shot of Mary behind the hippo walking fast the opposite direction than in the previous picture.  Her mouth is open, as usual, and she isn't wearing any pants. Today Grandma and I played around the house together. I walked with the hippo (my favorite activity ever). Grandma chased me around and I was really excitable. I ran this way and that. Then we went to the park by ourselves. She let me swing and it was really fun.

Mary sitting in the swing with her hood on and a big smile on her face.

Today Grandma gave me my lunch and let me look out over the patio. A bunny even came by to try and eat my carrots.

March 19th, 2007 A Walk in the Park

Today I went to the park with my Grandma. I’ve been there before but she came all the way from Pennsylvania to visit me so I had to take her ‘out on the town’. We had some fun in the brown jeep that I like. I also chased some mysterious fingers on the little kids jungle gym.

March 16th, 2007 I Am The Man in the Box

I got stuck in this box today. I knew that I could lift my foot out but I couldn’t quite get it all the way. I found that it was just much easier and more dignified to just walk around with it on my foot.

March 14th, 2007 Biker Chick

I got to ride on a bike today. It has a wooden seat that you sit on and, if you are tall enough and your feet touch the ground, you can push it and ride around the room. Yes, I know football season is over but true fans never stop enjoying the game.
