On June 4, 2008, my cousin Grant McDonald Smith graduated from kindergarten at St. Bernadette's. He'll be a big first grader next year. He took me to his class party afterward. They had bubbles, cotton candy and craziness. Thanks Auntie Mimi, you're the best!
My Uncle Stephen, or as I like to call him, "Uncle Stinky" had a birthday on May 30th, we celebrated twice on Friday night at Grant & Delaney's baseball games and on Saturday at their house with sushi & pizza.....so good! Happy birthday Stink!
Thursday, Mary 29, 2008 marked an important milestone in my tiny little life. I gave up my pacifier, affectionately known as my "Nuk." I decorated a special bag, gathered up all my Nuks and when I woke up (unfortunately, in the middle of the night) the Nuk Fairy took the bag o' Nuks and left me a huge frog balloon and a cool orange truck. I'm a big boy now!!!
I have a new friend, Tommy. He was born on April 17th. The little guy had a rough start but now he's happy & healthy. Look at him, he's a cutie. He's a lucky guy, cuz he has the best big sister. She's my girlfriend, Alaina. Hope to see you both soon!
May 4, 2008 I was baptized at St. Anthony's in Washington, DC a block from our house. Jimmy Malley & Debbie Higgins, my Godparents came down from Bellows Falls along with my Grammie & Papa. Thanks guys! I love you.
My moms took me to NYC to be one of "Marian's Marchers" in the Parkinson's Unity Walk on April 26, 2008. They took me to FAO Schwartz for a firetruck and to Bryant Park to ride the carousel. I love New York, I love it!
Here are some photos of Rowan's departure from Russia and his homecoming in November 2006. We're so happy to have him home and hope you will all get a chance to meet the little guy soon. Love, Moira & Karen
