Mary's 17 Month Birthday!!!

Mary celebrated her 17 month birthday today!! Here is a picture of the whole family!!!

Mary got a new computer from her mom and dad, here are some pictures of her using the computer. She took to the wireless mouse very well. She doesn't have the strength to "click" it, but she got very good at pointing, so dad will have to adapt it with a switch to help her with clicking.
Here she is playing a "Clifford the Big Red Dog" reading game. Mary really liked the game and she practiced saying all of the words, hat, cat, bat. . . pan, fan, ran, etc. It was really cool!!!

Mary's mom also made her this cool Balloon Birthday Cake!!
Here are daddy and Mary just before lighting the candles. . .
A picture of Mary, mommy and Jackson. . .

Grandma Julie helped mary blow out the candles. . .

And Mary got a little taste of the frosting!!!

Mary's Stander and The Shenandoah National Forest

Sorry we haven't updated Mary's Blog in a few weeks. . . Yes, we've been a bit busy, twice the diapers, twice the feedings, and half the sleep!! Actually, Jackson has been sleeping quite well, as you can see in this picture!!

Mary has been busy also, getting fitted for her new stander! Here she is posing with her new Bunny, "Hoppy" that she got from Teleflora flowers during their "Make someone smile week" promotion. Mary really likes to stand in the stander and chase Mom and Dad around the gym. Mary also likes to play basketball with her daddy.

You can also see how tall Mary is getting. She is in the 75th percentile for height!!

Here is a cute picture of Mary and Jackson (and Pooh) relaxing on the couch. Mary really likes to hold her little brother's hands. Jackson still doesn't know quite what to think of his big sister, but I think he already looks up to her!!

Grandma Julie has been visiting from Minnesota to help out with Jackson and Mary. Today we took a drive up to Shenandoah National Forest. It was a lot cooler up on the mountain, so it was nice to get out and do a little hiking.

Happy 4th of July!!!

We hope everyone had a great 4th of July! We went to a friend's farm for a 4th of July party and Mary got to pet a horse, a donkey, and a goat. She loved it! Of course we forgot the camera in the car, but here are some pictures of her in her festive outfit!!
