Being an Aunt: Volume Two

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.

Man that picture makes me look like I weighed 400 lbs. Oh, wait. ;)

April said...

That was Adam after he had lost 40 pounds while I was pregnant with Mary!

Mary is still all girl! She doesn't want to wear pants, a dress everyday, and two different ones if Mommy isn't looking.

Sarah is another total girl! She finds matching shoes and brings them to you to put on her and if you don't she starts to hide them in the cabinets in the kitchen. She also likes to take the comb and brush her own hair!

Man are you going to have fun shopping with these girls (and Annie of course)!

Um, I was kind of waiting for one of you to tell me the exact day of her birthday....

What is that little song she sings? Something about a snowman or something? Am I making this up?

Or was it a bunny? I remember a carrot.

"Miss Bee" said...

A chubby little snowman
Had a carrot nose
Along came a bunny
And WHAT do you suppose?
That hungry little bunny,
looking for some lunch
ATE that snowman's carrot nose
Nibble, nibble CWUNCH!

I hope Adam and April have that recorded, it was so stinkin' cute.

Ha! A snowman, bunny and a carrot! I knew I remembered it!
That may have been the cutest thing I have ever seen in my life.
