at fifteen weeks...

at fifteen weeks miss maeve you are something else.  wonderful, curious, talkative, and full of smiles.  in my first week of being fully back at work in the office you were a rockstar.  my phone is filled with texts and picture messages from your caregivers of you during your day.  this is what keeps me going...knowing you are in loving hands during the day.  here are a few of my favorites that were sent this week...

you and august...joanna says you are like an old couple, holding hands and not saying much...
this picture was sent with the text "hello from the pacifier gang"...
just chilling with your guard dog...
working on your laugh...

at fifteen weeks you are a happy girl...

at fifteen weeks this goes down as the best photo...because your buddy is literally spitting up on you in this photo...
but nothing a little towel and clean up can't make better!
 
and speaking of messes, i went to fill a bottle for you this week and forgot to screw the bottom on.  aye...a tired mama.
at fifteen weeks you got together with the girls for nina's birthday...
in the photo above we have babies born on (from left to right) on october 5, november 4, november 5, and october 4), which is amazing!  we are blessed as mamas to have met one another.
 
the best part of surprising nina for her birthday was that this is how she learned that there were more folks there to celebrate her when she walked in...
miss maeve and the ladies...

at fifteen weeks you slept so well.  at fifteen weeks you have so much to say...i could listen to you babble all day.  at fifteen weeks you little nose was running and your head was covered with coconut oil often.  at fifteen weeks i pulled you into bed in the morning and just stared at you as you slept.  at one point you opened your eyes, looked right at me, smiled, and then went back to sleep. there really aren't words.

at fifteen weeks, and as i write this, we spent our first night apart from one another. you made it okay to leave because when i was saying goodbye you were just so happy that i couldn't be too sad.  the special part of being away is that last year when i left for this same work trip it was the day that i found out that i was pregnant...that was you maeve...even then.  when we found out i took the test and i ran back to share the great news with your dad.  were were so excited.  we jumped up and down and hugged and laughed...and then i had to leave on a work trip.  you were my little secret.  and here i am today in d.c. and here you are alive and growing in this world.  what a year.  what a wonderful year.

xo.
