'Ridin' in the Big Red Car

We happened upon a red car for Mary in a local kiddie consignment shoppe. It kept her amused the entire time I was hunting for shorts for her. This place is great and some stuff still has the original store tags on, i.e. never worn!

Tu sei qui

Hard to believe that it has been 8 months since we arrived home with Mary. And it's been slightly longer than 8 months since we first met her!

She has grown so much that some of the pants she had early on now fit her as cropped pants instead of full length pants.

Just today, she said walk, aww done and a few other words for the first time. Only a matter of time until she chatters non stop!
