at twenty five weeks...

happy half birthday miss maeve!  at twenty five weeks you had so many firsts...two days at a new daycare, avocado, naked time without a space heater (hooray summer is on the way), time in a swing and in the exersaucer.  suddenly you seem very grown up...grabbing and reaching for things, communicating your needs without a single word, and killing it with that smile and those expressions.

at twenty five weeks you are still working on sitting up, but often end up folded over...
at twenty five weeks you used your exersaucer...and if i put you on the floor next to it you let me know that you wanted to be in it not next to it.  you were moving, shaking, playing with the toys, making noises, and loving the action...
tongue out and having fun...
at twenty five weeks it was the start of summer, but just the right temperature for your new cardigan from aunt helen.  you wore it nearly every day...

outside...
with skinny jeans...
 with friends...
 with a matching beret...
and while dancing on the counter...
at twenty five weeks mr. hobbes made it clear that he likes to be near you.  you woke up extra early one day and were talking and babbling.  i came in to see you and i found hobbes laying next to your crib and you were looking out and talking to him.  allergy-wise hobbes can't sleep in your room...but we let it slide just this once...
at twenty five weeks you are moving through clothes so fast.  i just packed up a bunch of other items and brought out some new things.  clothes with bum decor are being savored, because i know pretty soon you won't be laying still and on your tummy like this...
at twenty five weeks you were your most colorful yet...sporting your onesie from senegal and your yellow ciee hat...
mmmm...saliva and avocado...
at twenty five weeks you had two great days with rachael, august, and wilder.  you went to the bank and got your first sticker...
 you lent august your hat and had a photo shoot...
 you got ready for the days outside with a little sunscreen...
 you and august cuddled in a single stroller...
at twenty five weeks nina and rachael both captured a few more photo series of your expressions...



 and here...
 at twenty five weeks you got together with your buddies for a mexican fiesta in the sun...
 and we did the first (and last) mama pinwheel...
the mamas surprised me with a little early birthday present...photo cards from all the babes...

i'm having a hard time putting into words just what it means to have been a mama for six months...how do you compress such wonder, learning, growth, challenge, and happiness into a paragraph?  how do you take a feeling a give it adequate words?  i certainly can't...at least not right now.  the feeling...i have that and always will.  that is enough.

oh and did you hear what o and uncle ben bought maeve for her half birthday?  a boat.  yup.  a boat.

happy six months baby!
