at thirty nine weeks...

at thirty nine weeks we had lots of fun.  we celebrated your nine month birthday, had a great friday together, visited with family and friends, wore a crazy hat, and had lots of activity with rocking and dancing (your two new favorite things)!

at thirty nine weeks we wondered if more teeth were on their way, based on your shoving all of your fingers (minus the middle one) into your mouth at once, but no new teeth arrived this week...
we took a photo of you on your nine month birthday, even though you weren't awake yet.  but look at you already throwing fist pumps, so i submitted your photo to this wonderful blog...
here you are in the waiting room at your nine month checkup.  the doctor said you are doing really well, that you are a young nine months, and that you are a skinny mini with a big head...
you had a special day with nana this week and gave lots of smiles...
and on your day with grandma you talked and sang during your entire walk around little john.   in nana and grandma you have two of your biggest fans...and most excited visitors.

on friday we had a nice rainy day together.  we went into yarmouth and met a friend for lunch.  she gave you the straw hat featured in this week's blog (thanks leslie!).  we came home, got cozy, and were super lazy.  yawns all around...
 we read lots of books in bed...
i swear you are sorting out your favorites, which are mes animaux, quack quack maisy, and hip hop.  i love the intensity with which you open and close the pages and examine the pictures and the mystery/wonder that is a book...
we took a bath in the real bathtub.  hobbes who usually avoids the tub for fear that he's getting a bath was quite interested in the action.  he kept licking the water off of your arms, letting you splash him, and trying to drink the bath water.  oh hobbes...
your bath towel from aunt helen has been getting lots of use...
when we arrived in rockport on saturday you held court in nana and popsie's kitchen.  i came back into the room behind you and saw nana and popsie both had their cameras taking dozens of the same pictures of you.  two of my favorites were this one...
 and this one...
at thirty nine weeks we celebrated amanda's 30th birthday in rockport with friends.  you and alice, who are just a month apart, enjoyed babbling to/at each other... 
buddies...
you helped amanda wash and wrap potatoes for the lobster bake...
you did such a great job all weekend sleeping and napping in your pack and play.  i have to resist the urge to just climb right in there with you.  zzzz...
 on sunday we spent the day with evan, shawna, ian, and megan at hobbs pond...
you loved watching the action...
you are working on standing up... 
and you are doing so well.  you and dad practice each day...
week thirty nine brought lots of walks after work.  the days are getting shorter, but we are getting out there to get hobbes some exercise and all of us some fresh air.  in this picture you look so much like uncle ian...
and i love your little smile when we pop around to the front of your stroller to say hello.  you are always a little off kilter in the stroller, which makes you look extra relaxed and chill...
at thirty nine weeks august and his family were on vacation, so we don't have any photos of you two from the week.  it will be amazing to see how much you've changed when you see each other next.

this week i was struck by how much you understand and comprehend...and recall.  i see it most when we are reading. also, i was noticing some of the patterns that i don't think i realized were there.   it was a week of seeing how much is going on in that little (or big) head.  and this week you made great progress with eating...bring on the chunky foods.  oh but you still love nursing.  when we got home on sunday night we cuddled on the couch and you snuggled in.  while i find myself ready to be done with pumping, i'm not ready to be done with our time together.

it was a great week, that had twinges of fall in there air, which i loved.  xo little maeve, there was lots of love in the air, too!
