at thirty one weeks...

wow.  maeve, you are growing up.  look at you all pushed up and so focused!  we had a great week and a special friday together, where we just went for walks, took naps, ate, played, read, and hung out together.  this week it feels like you grew lots more hair...and got more flexible and bendy!  

you've been doing so well with food.  this week brought lots of nectarines, sweet potatoes, prunes, chicken, and avocado. i love having you in your highchair...
 at thirty one weeks we went on lots (and lots) of walks in the stroller...
during one walk we ran into your buddy eating a cucumber, which you seemed interested in...
you wore a special sunhat...
and a big ole sunhat...
 
and your ciee hat...
and often have your giraffe along for the ride...
at thirty one weeks you are sleeping really well.  you still wake typically once during the night, but you are making it much longer stretches and go down quite easily.  i usually bring you into our bed sometime between 4 and 6. and this is what i get to wake up to...
but really it looks like this.  cuter and closer...
at thirty one weeks we celebrated father's day...
yay for dad!
 we played on the floor with your toys...
and read many books...
at thirty one weeks mr. hobbes and i cooked you chicken and turkey and put it in the food processor (gag!).  you are a carnivore...and your dog is, too!
this week hobbes hurt his paw again and all he wants to do is be near you...and sleep up in your book nook.  besties i tell ya!

at thirty one weeks you still make amazing expressions...
i love this photo below of you rolling because your left arm is completely sandwiched under your body.  it happened once...and then you figured out how to roll.  now when i find you in your crib you are on your tummy (sometimes with your legs sticking out between the bars)...
at thirty one weeks, you and august had lots of fun.  it started out with dressing like twins and having a photo shoot...
still small enough to squish into the single stroller...
 pacifier buddies...
 you two look so grown up here...
and here is a shot from pants-optional-thursday...
these next two photos perfectly capture who you are right now.  happy...
and happier...
 
at thirty one weeks you got a visit from your friends from denmark...

and from philly...

maeve, this was a special week for us.  on saturday evening you joined me at a birth stories event that i organized with two friends.  i got up in front of a big group, alongside five other women, and shared a story that i wrote for you.  it wasn't the actual story of your birth that i wrote here, instead it was a story i wrote a few weeks ago as part of a class i took at the telling room.  during the event, you sat with emily and joanna and just listened as i read...even though it was well past your bedtime.  i loved having you there in the audience.  thank you for being there.  thank you for being. xo.
