Saturday was Mary's 4th birthday. I took it hard on Friday night for about 2 and a half minutes, which was all the time I would permit. I can't believe how old she is.
I blogged about her birth here. I blogged about problems with nursing her, and how she tried hard to starve to death (I am not kidding). I blogged about overcoming that to go on and having to cut her off eventually around her 2nd birthday because I was tired of it. She still strokes under my chin to compensate for her "loss."
So many of you readers have been with me through all of that. Thanks for sticking around. May we have many more good years of sharing.
On Thursday night, I strong-armed a woman into making Mary a birthday cake the next day. With no notice, she did a fabulous job. Mary really wanted a cake with unicorns. She got one. So cute! Notice the broken M. That was not how the cake looked when I brought it home. This girl still can not keep her hands off anything.
We squeezed Mary's cake and party between Peter's football game and his team's end of season party/coach's son's birthday party. The older boys had football later, followed by a party, Mass and camping. A busy day.
I will blog about those photo spreads later today.
