Merry Christmas!

We will be celebrating Christmas twice this week-- first in Lowell with Nana and Grampy, and then in New York with Grandma and Grandpa Ivan. Mairead is very lucky to have two celebrations for her first Christmas!

We wish all of you a very happy, healthy, and safe holiday, and hope that you all enjoy the time you have with your loved ones. We know that we are very lucky to have our beautiful little girl here with us this year, and for many years to come. We are definitely looking forward to seeing how she grows in 2008.

2007 was an amazing year for us and for our little girl, though it did come with some scary moments. In her short life, Mairead has already overcome such a difficult experience, and she is an incredibly happy and healthy little girl. We hope that she will continue to thrive and to impress us with all that she does.

We will definitely be posting Christmas pictures soon, and we hope that you will check back to see them. In the meantime, Merry Christmas to all of you and Happy New Year!

Rolling over!

Mairead has really been practicing, and is pretty successful about rolling over. She gets pretty proud of herself when she does it!

Happy Birthday, Steve!

Mairead's uncle, Steve, is celebrating a birthday today (December 17), and Mairead just wanted to send along her birthday wishes. Happy Birthday, Steve-- hope it is a good one!

Mairead is having more and more fun in her bouncer. She has learned how to get it bouncing pretty well, even hopping on one foot. Her physical therapist had her doing all kinds of exercises today, and she is doing very well. We are happy to see her gaining skills, strength, and coordination.
