Today my cousin Trinity made her first communion (yes I have alot of cousins!) and last night Grammy came over and watched me while mommy and daddy went to a wedding. Grammy brought a little table for me and princess plates, bowls and cups! I kept trying to get Grammy to sit on the chair with me but she shook her head no!
Tonight we went to Magee Hospital for a dedication ceremony for the Emma T. Whalen Family Resource Center. I never knew Emma but her mom and dad are good friends with all my aunts & I know her sister Lizzy. Emmma Whalen was born in 2001 and died 24 days later. She was 3 months premature and weighed less than 2 pounds. Her mom and dad raised money for a library at the NICU at Magee to help other parents that have premature babies get information while their babies are staying in the hospital. Here is a link to the article about Emma Whelan... http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pittsburghtrib/news/rss/s_499582.html.
I asked Emma to watch over my brother Stephen in heaven.
Can you believe I''m 18 months old already? AND, I finally crossed the 20 pound mark (wahoo!), I''m 20lb 7 oz to be exact and 29 + inches. Mom says I''m hanging onto the 3rd percentile by my fingernails! But that''s ok b/c I''m talking up a storm and too busy chasing my cousins to eat! Unless its ice cream or a popsicle :)
Today was a very sad day. My baby brother was born but he was too little so he became an angel and is watching over us in heaven. His name is Stephen Joseph and he was only 19 weeks old. My mommy and daddy are very sad so please keep us in your prayers.

Its Easter Sunday so I got dressed up in my new Easter dress and went to mass with all my cousins and aunts & uncles! Then we went to Great Grandma''s house for brunch and then over to Aunt Bridget and Uncle Matt''s for dinner! We had an easter egg hunt and I found lots of eggs. And my Grandma and Grandpa gave me two golf clubs and balls and I already made a hole in one!! Watch out Pap Pap, here I come!
I went on my first real easter egg hunt with Grammy and Pap Pap! I found alot of eggs but no one let me eat the candy inside of them - no fair! There was also a big horse there but I didn''t want to ride him!! We had lots of fun and I ran around and played with my new friend Austin.
