Friday was Mallory's 9-month birthday. Gosh, it's hard to believe she's been alive for as long as I was pregnant! My pregnancy seemed to have taken FOREVER, but these past 9 months have flown by. On Saturday morning, we took Mallory to Willow Springs park, even though it was a crip 27 degrees outside. The sun helped take the edge off the blistering cold, but it was still cold! Mallory was bundled up in a snow suit we bought for her off eBay and this was the first chance she had to wear it. It was slightly big, but it kept her from the cold! We brought Cayman as well and she enjoyed barking at the others out there with us braving the chill. Patrick brought his remote-control plane that he got for Christmas and enjoyed flying it around the wide-open spaces. He even had a chance to climb a tree (fetching his plane, of course). We had a nice time together and was able to capture some great memories digitally for us to enjoy and share with you!
