Most Wonderful Time of the Year

I can't believe I used to post a weekly pregnancy update!  Now that Mary Harper has arrived I find it a lot harder to get on my computer at all.  And if I do have spare time, I usually have other stuff I need to get done.  So it's been easy to neglect Blogworld. 
Mary Harper is now three months old and is getting more fun each day!  She smiles and laughs and has started "talking" nonstop.  (Hmmmm...wonder where she could get that?)  Her coos and baby talk are so sweet. 

She visited Paris for the first time over Thanksgiving and had lots of fun with her cousins.  We also celebrated my new niece Naomi's first birthday since being adopted.  It was her very first birthday cake and she was so excited about all her gifts! 

In early December, Josh and I spent a long weekend in New York.  We spent New Year's Eve there last December and I fell in love with New York during Christmas.  It was tough for me to be away from MH for the first time but it was nice to spend some quality time with Josh AND have a few nights of uninterrupted sleep!
Christmas this year was the best ever!  I know it will only get better each year as MH gets older but it was nice to not have to buy her any gifts this year and she had no clue!  Josh went out of his way to make sure my first Christmas with MH was a memorable one and the best gift of all was celebrating this special holiday as a family of three!

Josh and I got married two years ago this coming New Year's Eve!  I am so lucky to be married to such a wonderful husband who is now also the best daddy ever!  We celebrated while in NYC because I will not be in town the night of our anniversary this year. 

My best friend Lori lives in Japan so I rarely get to spend time with her so Josh being awesome and is sending me to Vegas over New Year's Eve this year with her!!  Last time I was in Vegas it was 115 degrees and I was 7 months pregnant so I'm thinking this trip will be a bit more enjoyable!  It was probably 7 or 8 years ago since the last time Lori and I went to Vegas together and I am absolutely THRILLED to spend a few days with her before she returns back to Japan. ):

So there's my much delayed update!  I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and for those of you who blog, I can't wait to catch up with what's been going on in your world. 

I will leave you with some more pictures of my baby girl!
