Yes it is. It's a magic number. Our baby is a little girl (except when she's sleeping, then she's all baby). I can't believe how quickly time is flying by. I knew it was going to go fast, but I didn't realize it was going to be incomprehensibly fast. Mary was really excited about her birthday. She's been talking about it for the last several weeks. She loved her birthday pancakes (with M & M's) ~
And lunch at McDonald's (her favorite thing is "burger fries") ~
And tonight the Pesek's came to help celebrate (Jacqueline is one of Mary's best friends) ~
Look at the beautiful cakes Jacqueline made~
We're having family over this coming weekend. Mary is doing great. She is so brave every time we go to the endocrinologist (and to the lab for blood draws every three months, now). She sees her cardiologist every 9 -12 months. And since she had the tubes put in her ears, she hasn't had another ear infection. She loves to sing, and read and count and "do math". She spends way too much time playing on PBSkids.com, and loves to boss pretty much everyone around. Her favorite people in the whole world are her brothers. She usually dresses herself, but prefers to run around naked at home. She brushes her teeth every morning and every night and loves to help me in the kitchen. I love her so much (we all do). And thank God she is here, every day.
I can hear her heart beat, for a thousand miles. And the heavens open every time she smiles. ~Van Morrison
