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...
at forty five weeks, daycare felt a lot like fall. you and august went on a nice stroll...
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.
