Funny story and unrelated to her teeth... last night when she was eating dinner Hays and I couldn't help laughing at her. She was eating pieces of chicken and green beans and I guess she really liked it. She decided to shove every piece of food that was on the tray into her mouth. This means that at one time, she had approximately 4 pieces of chicken and 3 green beans. The food was HANGING out of her mouth. She kept trying to push it back in with the palm of her hand. Then she would take a huge swig of milk to try to wash it all down. We had to start putting the food on her tray one piece at a time! Also, she drinks her milk like Napoleon Dynamite drinks water, so that in itself is about 30 minutes of entertainment for all.
Margaret Anne really enjoys when the channel Noggin is on the television. She loves Blue's Clues in the morning. I have to say that my favorite show on there is Wonder Pets! MA also likes it, but not quite as much as I do. :)
I think I would rather watch this show than anything else on TV right now. Funny!
I also have a prayer request for you. Sandi had to start chemo again on Tuesday, so she is feeling pretty yucky and will be having it once a week for the next three weeks, then a week off and repeat another three weeks. So please keep her in your prayers! Also, the 2009 Champions of Hope race is October 10th. We are going, so please sign up and race with us! You can go HERE for more information.
I know posts without pics of Margaret Anne are boring, I hope to post more with pictures throughout the weekend!

It is amazing how much you can do these days. You can make so many sounds! You like to bark (like Daisy), you say “Mama,” “Dada,” “Nonna,” something that sounds a lot like “yes” and lots of other fun sounds. You scoot around like a little mad woman and pull up on everything that is steady. You love to walk around, but only when you are sure someone is holding you and you DO NOT like to land on your behind. You will eat everything put in front of you, and you love to drink out of your sippy these days! Even though you eat so well, you do not like to get food on your hands! I am so glad that you are feeding yourself now, because I thought for a few months that you may never do it!
You have outgrown your morning nap. That was not fun, but we are over it and we all made it through. You still wake up so happy from your nap!
You are becoming a gorgeous little girl, not a baby anymore. You are so sweet and good when we go places. Now you have teeth (2 on bottom and I think 2 top ones on the way) and a head full of hair that is getting thicker, longer, and more curly by the day! You let me put it in pigtails and put bows in it, and I hope that lasts because it is so fun and you look so precious!
My favorite part of the day with you is in the morning. I love seeing your beautiful smile when I get you out of your crib. I don’t remember the last time you woke up crying, you always wake up so happy. You are SO happy in the mornings!!! It has always been my favorite part of the day. We sit and you babble to me and play with the cross around my neck.
When I sit down in the floor with you, you scoot to me so fast! Then you are climbing on me like a little baby monkey. Sometimes you even pinch my skin to pull up and stand. You LOVE to give me big, sloppy kisses on my cheeks and chin. I would take all of the slobber, bumps, and bruises in the world to have you want to be near me, because I know that a time will come later on when you don’t always want to be close to me!
Although you are my precious daughter, I know that you don’t truly belong to me or daddy, but to our Heavenly Father. I am so thankful and grateful to God that He is loaning you to us for a little while. You are a precious gift, and you are the joy of my life. I know that your daddy feels the same way. Thank you for being YOU, because you are perfect the way that you are. I look forward to all the years that the Lord allows me to spend with you!

Then, we made our way to the "Tot Spot," which was part of the "Itty Bitty Magic City" for little kids. Here Andrew was allowed to get some energy out, and let me tell you that sweet boy has a lot of energy. He provided lots of entertainment for mommies and babies alike!
Margaret Anne thought he was SO entertaining...
And so did Charlie! At one point Andrew came at Margaret Anne like he was going to kiss her, but knocked her over when she didn't to surrender to his advances. He then barreled over to her stroller and knocked it over and yelled "If I can't have her, no one can!" Well, maybe that last part didn't happen, but he did try to kiss her and knock over her stroller. She doesn't stay angry for long though.
These two are BFF's!
Playing in the blocks...
We then made our way to the "Grocery Store." Margaret Anne wanted to check out...
Next stop: "Ocean Adventure" Class. Andrew and Charlie touched a sea urchin. MA wasn't quite ready for that, she shook her head "no."
Our last stop was the Shark and Ray Touch Tank. We just looked though, no touching yet!
Thanks for a great playdate, friends!!! Let's do it again soon, unfortunately it will have to be on a Saturday!
