MARY IS ONE YEAR OLD!! Mary turned one on February 28 - what a GREAT day! She had a wonderful birthday party with her friends last Saturday and she sure got spoiled. Thank you to everyone who sent her well wishes for her birthday. We've included a few pictures of her special day!

Mary loved her balloons that Uncle Ross, Auntie Jenn, Reagan and Alexander sent!

She had a great time playing outside with her friends and loved the balloon release!

Here is a picture of her butterfly cake. Her party was all butterfly themed! Thanks Kathryn for helping with the cake!!

As you can see she really cleaned up!! Mary had a great birthday and was spoiled just like she wanted it! Thank you to everyone!

Mary will be starting speech therapy this Friday. She says a lot and likes to have conversations with Daddy - especially in the evenings. She continues to smile and bring us joy every day. We love her so much! She is also very excited to get back to swimming next week! We are so proud of her and are so happy she is such a big girl - we can't call her a baby anymore!!

Hi Mary Grace!

We're glad you had such a great birthday celebration! That cake looked pretty good! And you are looking very grown up and very pretty in your birthday pictures! Did you get any more snow in the recent storms? Well, keep enjoying all your birthday presents, and say hi from us to your Mom and Dad and Sam and Copper and everybody else!

Love, Jane and Bill
