October 19th, 2007 Time With Papa

Today’s picture is of me a year ago being “Dope”. Hah! It’s funny how fads fade away. See how silly I looked?

The rest of the pictures are from Nana and Papa’s visit, my hippo wrangling, and Trick-or-Treating. Mostly, there are pictures of me showing Papa how to stay active. Wee.

October 15th, 2007 And I’m Back

Mary sitting on the carpet looking up at the camera. Hey guys. Sorry I have taken some time off, but I have been visiting family at my Aunt Corinne’s wedding and playing with my Nana and Papa over the last month and I have been terribly busy.


A closeup of Mary in her bathing suit.We are wrapping up the year of the POTD’s. We started this around the beginning of November last year and October 31st seems like a fitting time to end this excitement. I will keep posting pictures but since I am not changing as much I will shoot for around one to two posts a week instead of one picture every workday. With this less grueling schedule of posting you should start to see some more videos instead as well.

To end this escapade I will be posting larger groups of photos with a picture of me from a year ago in a, sort of, grand finale. Today’s post is of older pictures of me at school from late August along with a picture of me from late August last year. Boy I have changed. I couldn’t even walk then.

September 20th, 2007 Squeaker

My Aunt Corinne got me some shoes back when she was “in ‘Nam”. They finally fit and I love them. I’m wearing them to school tomorrow.

I’m also practicing trick-or-treating. Daddy is going to take me this year. Last year I was too young.

I got a hold of daddy’s boots the other day. I’m ready to help mow the lawn now.

August 24th, 2007 New Pajamas!

I have my first set of pajamas. They are purple and that is my cousin Kailey’s favorite color. It is also my daddy’s fraternity color. And they have bunnies on them. I had to introduce Bunny Foo-Foo to my pajama bunnies. I’m pretty much a big girl now. Also, I’m starting to whistle now.

Have a great weekend!

August 8th, 2007 Miscellany

Here are some random shots from the weekend. I crawl into my stroller by myself when I want to go for a walk. Also, I can be pretty insistent when I want to be put down.
