More Marissa Sized People!!

Today we went to the birthday party of a good friend of mine and there just happened to be four other kiddos there for Marissa to play with. There was a lot of activity and people so Marissa was pretty overstimulated at times but overall she did very well. At this point in the year we are squeezing out every opportunity to have Marissa play with other little guys her size. She is always leery of adults (because she thinks they are going to poke her with a needle or hurt her in some other way) but she always interacts well with other kids. Here are a few pictures from the day...

Happy Birthday Shannon!!

Oh, and by the way...

This is the first time she has actually said "mama" since the beginning of the summer because of her recurring ear infections. YAY!!!

Did Marissa geta a haircut?!! Or maybe that's just because she doesn't have her trademark pigtails in. Nevertheless she looks great!
