at seventeen weeks...

maeve at seventeen weeks your personality is shining through.  you chatter away...dad says you are going to be a talker...and he wagers you have popsie's energy.  when you smile you look all sady, but you are starting to show a little of the dyer side.  speaking of your dad, this is what i discovered when he got you ready for bed and i asked him to put your lotion on your head...
at seventeen weeks you are more aware of hobbes and love watching him around the house.  he comes upstairs when we are in your room to see what is going on with his lady. this morning he had a sneeze attack and moments later you did, too.
at seventeen weeks you didn't fall asleep immediately when i put you in the carrier for walks.  in fact, you looked around as we trekked through the woods, but eventually you got drowsy from the bouncing.  this week had some warm days (by maine standards) and you got outside often...
you even got outside for a nap...
at seventeen weeks we took you to the art museum.  you were peering out of your carrier and checking things out.  you liked the glass and ceramics cases best...
at seventeen weeks you hung out with elise and you made eye contact and held hands with one another...finally!  apparently the it thing for babies to wear are solid tops, striped pants, and a splash of pink.  so stylish ladies...
at seventeen weeks you had your four month check-up and got some shots.  you've been pretty rashy and your head has been itching a lot.  at the appointment we learned that you are likely reacting aversely to my eating dairy, so i'm dairy-free while we figure things out.

i'm in disbelief that you are four months old...and yet i am in love with your four month old self.  i'm not the only one.  dad and hobbes are crazy about you and our neighbors love to come visit and see what you are up to.  and the grandparents are over the moon with ever photo we send.
you and august continue to have fun together during the day while i am at work.  i get wonderful photos throughout my day....
at seventeen weeks you are on a pretty regular sleep schedule...you go down around 7:30, need to be re-passifiered a few times, but sleep until around 4-6 in the morning.  i bring you into bed, feed you, and then you sleep again.  on sunday afternoon i held you, you fell asleep, and we rocked in the chair in the white room...the sun streaming in.  my favorite moment this week was when i popped my head into our bedroom after taking a shower.  you and dad were both sleeping in the bed.  your eyes were semi-open while you slept. i got closer and smiled at you.  through your sleep you smiled back at me and closed your eyes...bound for more dreams.
as i write this on sunday evening, our friends are at the hospital being induced.  all day i've been thinking about that sunday evening not long ago when we drove to the hospital for the same thing.  i had no idea that when you arrived you'd bring so much love with you...oh and the laugh that you are sharing with us...it's too much.

miss maeve, thank you for being.  you. are. so. very. loved.
