One year today our little girl was born after 2.5 hours of labor at 2:20am. 6 pounds 4 ounces and 18.5 inches long. One week early on Black Friday. We were the only ones in labor and delivery. I remember her little cry as she entered the world, her full head of hair, her tiny fingers and toes. I became a mom, Justin became a dad, and our family grew to three.
This year marked Mary's first Halloween. Everyone in the family wanted to be apart of it, so we had everyone over. I made my traditional chili in the crockpot.
Mary loved trick or treating. We did the big loop in our neighborhood and she filled up her pumpkin pail to the top. Each time someone have her candy she would look down into her pail and back up and them and smile. It was the cutest. Once we got home we emptied out all her candy I front of her and she went straight to the tootsie pop. (Grandpa gives her tootsie pops all the time at his house.)
