Six months

For those of you keeping track at home, it has, in fact, been six months since Christmas. I know. Six months since little Mary Clare decided to make her appearance, surprising all of us with her head of dark hair and well, the fact that she was, in fact, a she.

Mary Clare made this past month especially entertaining for us. She grabs at everything, and loves nothing more than to really dig her hands into our cheeks and pull at our hair. She means it in the nicest way, I'm sure. Everything goes directly to her mouth, including sweet potatoes, which she then so kindly sprays back at us. Mary Clare went for her first outdoor swing ride on her very own swing and even gave swimming a try. Neither experience was received as well as we had hoped. She flaps her arms and kicks her leg like crazy, blows raspberries and gives us big belly laughs when the mood strikes her. She loves it when we mimic her sounds, and does what appears to be a complete 360-degree rotation with her head. That one still freaks us out. And, of course, she made her big Catholic debut this month as well.

All of her firsts and little achievements sound a tad silly when I list them out like that, but combined they make life awfully darned interesting. We wouldn't trade it for the world.
