Mary's Funny Run

We've tried many times to catch this funny little run Mary does on video. She usually stops as soon as she sees the camera. Lisa, however, was able to catch a bit of it yesterday on her fancy phone. It's short, but you'll get the idea.

Head, Shoulders, Point and Point

I suppose it's no surprise that "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes" is one of Mary's favorite songs, sung in this video by "Music Dog" (creative name, I know). You can check out Mary's skills (albeit, very slow skills) below. In case you're wondering, the thing that she does with her arm is copied from me. I just kind of point toward my knees and toes when we sing this song, rather than bending all the way down to touch them. She picked it up and does the same. Lesson learned: laziness is contagious.

apple picking!

Note: since Lisa first posted this we've added a video at the bottom. Enjoy.

Some of the apples were tough to pull so Mary had to use her great strength! This is her struggling face. :)

She LOVED picking the apples (it was like she won the lottery every time she got one off the tree) and she also loved eating them. Good times, all around!

make way for ducklings...

In Boston's Public Garden there is a little tribute to the children's book, Make Way for Ducklings. Mary doesn't really know the book (we have it but it isn't a board book... we stay away from real paper pages these days)... but she loved the ducks.

Today when I was packing our toiletries I looked down and saw this! I couldn't believe she knew what to do with the deodorant. Not sure when and how she learned this because I don't recall doing this in front of her that often... she's usually still asleep when I'm getting ready. It's almost scary to think of what else she could be learning. My big girl!
