at thirty eight weeks...

miss maeve.  thirty eight weeks.  on sunday morning i went to get you in your crib.  you were playing with your new musical toy and staring through the crib.  i love those big blue eyes.  and i'm not the only one that loves look at you.  you still loooove looking at your reflection in things...
at thirty eight weeks you and dad had all kinds of fun...
took a nice stroll with hobbes after a rainstorm...
 
practiced your standing up, which you are getting really good at...
you had a great day this week with nana.  she captured some wonderful photos of you...
some silly expressions...
and all the fun that you had together...
at thirty eight weeks we had a little family reunion in new harbor.  lots of cousins, lots of dogs, and lots of fun...
 you loved hanging out with uncle evan and were always looking around to know where he was...
 and you enjoyed cuddling on the couch with shawna...
after new harbor we drove down to york to visit friends.  you did so well traveling in the car.  you love watching hobbes in the back, looking out the sunroof, and snoozing.

at thirty eight weeks we continue experimenting with food, but we are still having a little trouble with things that are too chunky. ah...oh well.  and also in food related news, this week you got into a fight with a jar of prunes...
i mean look at that black/brown eye...
and you loved testing out a popsicle...
and went back for more with the prunes...
and at thirty eight weeks you and august had a gazing meditation. i love august's expression in the photo below.  oh you two!

you also went to story hour at the library...
and that afternoon rachael sent along this sweet photo.  it's one of my favorites.  your little lips.  and that chin.  the new hair.  those sparkly eyes.  two teeny nostrils.  and those indents above your eyebrows... 
it will be two weeks before you and august are back together.  i can't imagine how much will have changed for both of you kiddos.  and speaking of change...tomorrow we take you in for your nine month (!!!) check up.  i can't wait to see what your next raising readers book will be...and how much you've grown.  

some memorable moments from the week include hearing you play the first three notes of "oh christmas tree" on your piano, our pit stop at the transportation center, waking up in new harbor to all of us in one bed...even hobbes, the excitement on your face when we pick you up from daycare, and the way you dance in your sassy seat.

i love laying and playing with you on the floor.  i know these days of you staying in one place are very limited, so i'm soaking them up.  on the eve of your nine month birthday, i'm feeling immensely grateful for having you in our little family, for the love you exude, and for your softness and sweetness.

miss maeve, nine months ago were just hours away from meeting you.  in ways it feels like i've blinked...and in other ways that feels like a very long time ago.  thank you for the privilege of these past nine months.  i adore you.  xo.
