at forty five weeks...

oh miss maeve.  this week was filled with so much laughter.  at forty five weeks you were really into all the friends that you saw, with squeals and giggling and smiles.  you are so playful and happy.  and you were a rolling machine.  you have been trying to push yourself up on all fours and without crawling you manage to get yourself wherever it is you want to go.  

at forty five weeks you got a little cold, but still managed to be in great spirits.  no drippy nose can slow you down.  girl, you are moving.  we spent lots of time playing on the floor in your room.  i love to just set you up with some toys, grab a pillow and lay on the floor, and watch you do your thing.  sometimes your thing is getting wedged under your crib or banging on your baseboards...but lady, you sure do have a good time.

at forty five weeks you spent some time with kili...
 you took lots of long walks...
you spent lots of time with uncle ben, whom you love hanging out with...
and you got some quality time with aunt emily, yay!!!
 you wore your striped sweater often (thanks grandma!)...
you hopped in the laundry basket for a ride upstairs to help me pull out and sort your fall clothes...
you played cinderella with isabelle and jo, as they helped you try on a bunch of different shoes to see if any fit yet...
you practiced standing a lot.  you don't pull yourself up in your crib yet, but we help you up and give you time to practice each day...
we opened the blocks that you got for christmas and you loved playing with them...
at the grocery store this week you spent the whole time shaking a box of annie's as we made our way through the aisles.  a woman after my own heart...
at forty five weeks, daycare felt a lot like fall.  you and august went on a nice stroll...
 went to visit a neighbor and her pumpkins...
played pumpkin patch kids...
and posed with your buddy wilder...
this photo came through with the caption "where in the world is maeve?"--a mini carmen san diego...
and you spent lots of time outside...
we took a nice long walk with august and rachael this weekend.  it was the first day of fall, but on that day it felt like summer.

this week was one with lots of love.  one where your face just lit up anytime someone you knew walked in the room.  one where you got time to be with grandma.  one where you let me hold you until you fell asleep, which is something you are usually too wiggly for.  one where it was hard to drive without wanting to constantly look in the rearview mirror and see your reflection bouncing back.  one where i could feel how my love for you grows exponentially.

a friend send me a text this weekend and admitted that when she's having a crummy day she looks at your photos on instragram to cheer up.  and uncle ben said that he just comes over to see you...not me and dad anymore.  you are so popular.

at forty five weeks, i went to the commonground fair with emily, while you had a day with grandma.  it was really special and we had a wonderful day being together.  it reminded me of when i went to the fair last fall with christina when i was pregnant with you and we took a tintype photo to remember the day that us two pregnant ladies hit the fair.  this year, i was determined to take another tintype with emily, who is also pregnant.  we found the booth and as we were posing, the man behind the camera said "i took your picture last year, didn't i?...and you were pregnant!" and now i have my two pregnancy tintypes on the bookshelf.  i love looking at the first photo now and knowing that it was you in there...but miss maeve, who is the little one in there in this years photo? ahhh time will tell.

a high five for you little maeve.  thanks for a fun week baby girl.  xo.
