mary has experienced a lot of firsts lately.  of course, she is so little, most everything she experiences is a first but some things are too fun and special not to share.  so this post will be mostly pictures.  i am sure you don't mind.

first "big girl" bath!

she definitely loves bath time a lot more now that she's sitting in the water.  we've moved up to using the rest of the baby bath tub in my bath tub because she's getting so much longer.  she outgrew the sink!

first time playing on her floor mat!

she loves the bright, contrasting colors.  we get the most "talking" out of her on that mat or in her bed looking at her baby einstein mirror.

first trip on the blue ridge parkway

it was a beautiful day and we took mom up to eat at the pisgah inn.  i hadn't been up on the parkway all summer either so we all enjoyed the trip up and mary was so good.

first time in her bumbo!
she is loving this seat more and more.  (and yes, we ordered the safety belt.  and no, we never plan to sit her up on a table or counter and leave her there.  or leave her in it unattended, for that matter.)

first time to church!

we are actually back home from church in these pictures but we wanted a trial run before we took her the next week for her baptism.  she is wearing the dress i wore home from the hospital 33 years ago.  she loved church, too.  she looked around quietly most of the time almost as if she was putting the sounds together with the place.  she was always very active during church when i was pregnant.  i hope she'll always love going to church!

first bottle fed by her pops!
