One four-tastic little girl

Today marks Mary Clare's four-month-old birthday. I swear, she just gets more entertaining each month. And cuter. And, as you can tell, with each passing month I just get less and less modest.

And now, for those who haven't seen the little lass in a while, here's a list of her feats to date. Mary Clare is quite determined when it comes to grabbing her toys, she kicks her legs like crazy, stands straight up when you hold her and likes to hear herself talk. (Really, I wonder where she gets it.) Mary Clare gives up the laughs from time to time, and while they have a Beavis and Butthead quality to them, of course we find it charming. She is one smiley little girl, and I would have to say that she is happy most of the day. Well, unless there's a delay in feeding her. Then all hell breaks loose.

Best of all, she is finally working her way into some of the three-to-six-month clothes. Of course, that didn't stop me from cramming her into her newborn-sized Valentine's Day dress on Thursday because it was red day at school and that is the only red item she owns. The skirt was a tad short -- as in only a baby should be allowed to wear such things short -- but she pulled it off. And Chip got props from her teachers for putting her in a dress and tights, so really, everyone won.

On a sad note, work has put a cramp into my photo sessions so there are only (only!) 50 photos in this month's set, but I still managed to get some good ones. Click here for the full set and prepare to be amazed by the smiles.
