Just Taking Some Pictures

These are just a few pictures I took over the last few days of Mary Paul. She is getting so big and as always is so much fun. She gets excited when we talk about Ellie Jane, who will be here two weeks from today!!! I am nervous about having two kids, but hopefully I'll do okay. Enjoy the pictures of Mary Paul!!!

Mary Paul is Getting Bigger

Mary Paul is getting so big and so smart and so contrary. She argues with everything. For example, while drinking apple juice I said, "How's your apple juice, Mary Paul?" Her response was, "No. I'm not drinking apple juice." When I told her she couldn't lick the play-dough, her response was , "But I have to lick the play-dough." Last week, for the first time ever, I just left a buggy full of items and walked out of the store. Despite the fact she is entering her terrible twos, when I am not exasperated, she cracks me up. She came out of her room this morning wearing a hat, shoes and a "coat" (her blankie around her shoulders). She danced all over the room. She also is loving to tell stories and has the vocabulary to do it. A final funny story that occurred after I left the previously mentioned cart of groceries.

Me: Mary Paul, today we need to go to Target and Publix.
MP: No. I don't want to go to Publix.
Me: Well, we have to go to Publix to get the rest of the food the ladies retreat.
MP: (Sigh) You don't eat ladies for treats.

Playing dress up with whatever she can find. It was 8:15 in the morning so we were still in our pajamas.
