The second of the "I'm a good aunt" blog series is dedicated to Miss Mary Claire, Adam and Aprils oldest girl. She was born July (mumbles something since she doesn't remember exactly what day but is pretty sure it is around the 17th), 2004.
(Look how giant Adam is in the background. No offense Adam. That was before he had the Lapband, wow.)
Mary is awesome because she is a girly-girl. She is all princess and ruffles. (Well, at least she was before they moved to Africa. Who knows what she is into now!)
My favorite story about Mary happened while they were living near Seguin. She had pretty pink hoop earrings in. I said, "I like your earrings." She responded, "Yeah, I had to take them other ones out cuz they weren't pink OR sparkly!" I'm so proud that she learned this at a young age - if it isn't pink, it better sparkle.
Since we knew she loves all things that are pink, princess-themed and sparkly, Larry and I got her shoes for Christmas two years ago:
Apparently she wore them every. single. day. This is what they looked like a year later:
She is really smart and just so cute. So here's to Mary Claire - may your days be filled with all that is pink and sparkly.
