Now that she is almost 1, Mairead is getting so grown up! Her hair is getting long, and has been getting in her eyes lately so she needed some barrettes. She looks so cute and so much like a little girl-- she's not much of a little baby anymore! Although that makes me a little sad, I love how much fun she has become, and how many new and exciting things she is trying! She is standing quite a bit lately; I think that walking is not far behind. She loves talking- she may not say everything perfectly, but so far we have: cat, dog, up, dad, down, what's that (her new favorite), fish (sort of), and duck. She called all the seagulls at the beach 'duck,' and every bath toy is 'fish.' Today she told Ms. Pat (at day care) buh-buh! She says 'mum' on choice occasions-- mostly when she is sad and crying. Mostly it's 'da da da' all the time. It's very sweet- she loves her daddy!
These are just a few pictures of two of her favorite things-- eating cheese and looking cute!
