a special message to Toby's big sister Mary

Many of you are scratching your heads and saying, "I thought Toby was Kelli's first child." If that is you, than you have never met my "daughter" Mary. She is the oldest child in our family and paved the way for all the other children to follow--i.e. she taught me LOADS about parenting!

Mary is such a special young lady and I am ever so proud of the woman God has grown her into. She is a great big sister...even though she is not in St. Louis much (she goes to school in Knoxville, TN)

Anyway, Mary...Toby wanted me to tell you that he misses you so much and wants to know when you will be home to see him and also...he loves you so much! He wants to give you a big, wet, slobbery, toothless kiss!

this was the first picture of Mary and Toby...look how he has grown!
We all love you Mary!
