I have really been remiss about taking pictures this week-- can you believe that I don't have ANY new ones? We have been really busy this week and school starts Tuesday, so we are pretty much just hiding in our denial that summer is really over! So, in lieu of new pictures, how about an old one? The picture above is from just about a year ago at this time. I can't believe how different she looks! One thing hasn't changed, though; right from the beginning, she has always loved her daddy. Dave's birthday was yesterday and Mairead gave him a photo album full of pictures of the two of them. They are so cute together!
I don't have pictures, but I can tell you that Mairead is just doing great! She is on the verge of walking, and yesterday she took three steps before deciding that walking is just too slow. I think she could do it if she really wanted to, but she knows that crawling is faster. And, since she is not known for her patience, crawling it is!
We have just loved being home with her all summer and we will be sad to drop her off at daycare on Tuesday. We know that she loves it there and has so much fun with the kids, but after 2 months of being spoiled in our time with her, it won't be easy on us!
I promise that I will take more pictures, especially when it gets cooler outside and Mairead can wear all sorts of new 'back to school clothes' that look so cute on her!
