Real Crawling- caught on tape!

This is the first footage of Mairead crawling! She has been doing her own brand of crawling for a while now; she crawls army style with her tummy still on the ground, and pushes with her legs to get where she needs to go. Recently, though, she has been pulling herself up on to all fours and crawling for real! To see her do it, you have to watch until about 20 seconds in to the video. We're so proud of her-- she is doing something new every day!

Bath Time

These are just a few shots of Mairead's bath the other day... you can get an idea of how long her hair is getting! Also, if you look really hard, you can see her two teeth that are really getting bigger by the day!

Also, Brynn, the physical therapist from EI was here on Monday and is just thrilled with how Mairead is doing. She has definitely met all of her milestones and is not showing any indication that there will be ill effects from the stroke. In fact, Mairead is ahead of her age group in a lot of areas, particularly in her cognitive skills. We need to get her some new toys because she is ready for 12 month activities! Of course, she would rather play with the TV remote, our cell phones, or the keyboard for the computer! You can imagine how happy we are to hear that our beautiful little girl is healthy. We are so thankful for her and for her health, and we are so happy that she brings smiles to so many people!

Special thanks to Janice (Mimi) for Mairead's Nemo bath toys-- she loves them!

A Big Fan

This weekend, Mairead discovered two things of which she is a big fan-- the Celtics and french fries.

She was all set to watch the game with her dad-- she had her Garnett jersey and her water bottle ready to go.

She does have two teeth in there, but they are tough to see!

We were able to watch the Celts blow out the Hawks and move on to the next round-- Go Celts!

Also this weekend, Mairead was introduced to french fries. She definitely liked them! Thanks to Brian for sharing his Wendy's with her!
