Halloween Party 2007

We had our Halloween party this year. I was a bunny. I got to draw on our patio door with markers, and eat tons of crackers. Halfway through the party I slimed the camera with my bunny goo. You can see it in the last two pictures. Hee, hee.

Today’s flashback picture is me in my Halloween costume last year.

Mary in her monkey costume.

Fending off the Doctor

Well, it’s been a long week and we are a few days closer to Halloween. Today’s pictures are of me in my overalls shelving some books and some pictures of me and my fruit. Today’s flashback picture is of me sleeping (Boring!).

Mary swaddled and asleep at daycare.

Dressing Up

Sorry I have been MIA. I got sick on Wednesday. I almost threw up on Mommy right before she had to go to work. Daddy said that he wishes he had a picture of that. Anyhow, today’s pictures are me learning to get dressed and Papa and I reading.

Today’s flashback picture is daddy holding me up (nope, still can’t walk).
Mary being held up by daddy.  She has her index finger up in the air.

Toilet Cleaner

Welcome Back. This is the final week of the POTD and we will start with some wonderful pictures of me “earning my keep” by cleaning up around the house. Last year’s picture shows me as a little baby looking surprised.

Mary from October 2006 laying on a pillow looking at the camera with a surprised expression.

Mary holding a toilet scrubber in the toilet and looking up at the camera in askance. Mary with a toilet scrub brush in the toilet and pointing up above the toilet. Mary holding the toilet scrub brush in the toilet bowl lookign up towards the camera curiously.

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.

These are from the start of my Nana and Poppa’s visit. You can’t really see them, except for Nana in the background of one of the pictures. The picture from last year is from September of 2006. Still couldn’t walk.

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.

Mary at 5 months old.
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.
