Our new stuffed animal

Thank you to the Cracker Barrel in Pearl and Dr. Randy Cotton for encouraging John to bring a stuffed possum, yes that is right, possum, home for Mary Audrey. She actually really likes it! Some of you may know that I have a childhood nightmare with a dead possum so it is not my favorite.

And BTW, thanks Aunt Kristen for the "dddaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwgggggggggg" pajamas. She loves them!

Happy Birthday to Mary Audrey

Eating Birthday Cake

Mary Audrey enjoyed her birthday cake!

It has been a while ....

I sincerely apologize for not updating my blog through the summertime. I would give you a list of excuses but I won't. I'll just say I'm sorry and move forward.

We have seen a lot of "firsts" with Mary Audrey over the last few months. I recommend that you start at the bottom of this post and move upward. That will get the pictures in time order. It is truly amazing to watch a child grow up before your eyes. John and I just love MA to death and thank God for her each and every day.
