She's eating some baby carrots and wearing a shirt that Tracy bought her, in London, that says "my mummy's a yummy mummy". She wore it to the park today, and also to La Leche League tonight.

I love how delicate Mary's little fingers look in this photo~
And here, grinning at her daddy~

We saw Dr. Varga on Wednesday - he was amazed (as usual) by how healthy she looked. Mary had an looong echo done - everything looked great. She still has a leaky valve, which will probably require replacement sometime in the way distant future, as well as a tiny VSD (too tiny, in fact, for the surgeons to repair when they were in there last time). Basically, he said come back in 5 months, but really, she's completely fine.
She's not someone with a congenital heart defect waiting for her open-heart surgical repair - she's, finally, just a baby, sleeping in her mama's arms at the Renaissance Faire.

Nine In, Nine Out. Mary was born at 39 weeks, 1 day. That's exactly how old she is today! Interestingly enough, this is also her 9 month birthday. Tomorrow she will be out longer than she was in. I miss the excitement of not knowing 'who', exactly, was coming, and the awe-inspiring feeling of life growing and moving inside me. But I am glad beyond measure that Miss Mary is here, safe and sound. She's even more amazing in person :)
Today we splashed around at the Carol Stream pool with the Humphrey's. Mary (and her big brothers) loved it. There wasn't much shade, and Mary is getting quite a tan. She's getting closer yet to truly crawling, rocking a bit on all fours. We're really going to be in for it when she takes off - we've caught her snacking on Legos more than once, already.
