Thank you all for sharing in the lives of our three amazing children- Mairead, Jack, and Ben. We hope you visit often!

Lately, Mairead has been exploring every inch of the house. Today, it was underneath the kitchen table.

Also, she is getting her top teeth, so gnawing on the chairs seemed like a good idea.

It's tough to see it, but in this next one, she is just about to stick out her tongue. For most parents, this is not a good thing, but since Mairead had that tongue surgery, we have been waiting to see if she could do it. Turns out, she can! She has been sticking her tonuge out at us the past 2 days, and we are actually pretty excited about it!

And then it's back to eating the furniture.

We'll have teeth marks on all our chairs!

Musically Inclined?

After checking out her friend Will's blog the other day, Mairead and I were inspired to try a new activity. Dave plays the guitar and Maghan plays the piano- will Mairead play the drums?

Family Resemblance

Mairead has always looked like her dad, but as she gets a little older, there seems to be more of her mom's side in her. Maghan's Nana pulled out this old picture of Jen when she was little, and there is a very strong resemblance between her and Mairead. Mairead took a minute to admire the picture before chomping on it. She and Jen also have that same mischievous look sometimes-- so there is a family resemblance in more ways than one!

I don't have a lot of pictures from this past week because I was so busy with the prom and graduation. Thankfully, both are overwith and both went well. It was definitely a stressful week and I didn't get to spend nearly enough time with Mairead. Dave brought her by the high school on Saturday so that I could see her for a minute before heading out on to the (96 degree) field. We graduated 908, and there were 1,153 at the prom, so there was a lot to be done! I'll definitely post more pictures soon- especially since she looks so cute in her bathing suit!
