April 11th, 2007 Easter Hunny

I had my first Easter and E. Bunny brought me a nice dress, some toys and some candy. I loved the dress, but I was even more interested in this strange “grass” in the basket E. brought me along with some plastic eggs that made fun noises when I shake them. E. also left some footprints to inspect. I wish he wouldn’t have wiped his feet on the back of my daddy’s black jacket.

Mary's easter gifts, A big plush chickie, some stackable rings, an easter basket, some books, a dress, and some blocks. Mary crawling and reaching out to her easter bunny easter basket while mommy is holding it just out of her reach. Mary in her dress wailing and crying. Mary sitting in her dress looking decidedly un-enthused.

April 10th, 2007 Dining Out

I had breakfast at the Peak Grill the other day. I now, regularly, sit in a high chair by myself and eat food from my mommy and daddy’s plates.

April 3rd, 2007 My First X-Ray

Mary asleep in her car seat. You can see a nice purple bruise over her right eye. Mary sitting up in the doctor's office. You can see the eye has swollen up.So tonight I got my first X-Ray (now I know what the letter X is for). I was at daycare and I was learning to walk but I tripped and fell banging my right eye on the bookshelf. I cried. My mommy came and got me and by the time I got home I was happy again and trying to walk. But mommy and daddy were a little concerned and so they took me to the emergency room… again.

This hospital visit was at a different hospital and we were in and out much faster but they were concerned too so they took an x-ray of my face because they were worried that my orbital bone might have been fractured.

I practiced walking more while we waited to get x-rayed. I’m getting pretty good and I can take like 8 – 10 steps without falling.

We wore lead aprons and daddy had to hold my chin up so they could get a good picture. I cried. But now I have my first X-ray and even my daddy is in it You can see his hand under my chin. It looks like he is choking me. He-he.

Mary's x-ray. It looks normal and you can see daddy's hand under her chin.
