at forty four weeks...

at forty four weeks we are finally ready to share some news.  in mid-to-late march we'll be welcoming a new little one into our home.  we are so very very excited.  when maeve saw the photo she tried to eat it, which seems positive!
and speaking of babies, we celebrated oliver's first birthday this week.  this photo was taken by heather.  you, me, and my [pumping] buddies from work and their sweet littles...
you enjoyed hanging out with lydia on a beautiful day...
at forty four weeks you had a great time at daycare.  you went to visit a neighbor in an old fashioned stroller...
you and august played some tunes...
you and the boys did some excavation...
peek-a-boo...
at forty four weeks you wanted to be a part of the action, with prime seating.  so you spent lots of time in your chair at the counter.  you read the circulars...
took control of the spoon...
looked adorable in your little beanie...
and rocked your awesome bib...
at forty four weeks you spent lots of time on the floor playing.  you continued pulling yourself up on things.  what a strong lady...
you and that tongue, always working on something...

a little sleepy before school, but as stylish as ever...

ready to party...
hanging out under the coffee table...
trying out a new look...
on sunday we went in your room and just hung out on the floor.  without actually crawling, you worked your way around the whole room, cleared off the bottom shelf of your bookcase, tipped over your diaper pail, and had a blast rolling around...

you spent some time playing around with uncle mike in the backyard...
and at forty four weeks, dad finally captured the picture i've been trying to get of you and hobbes for months.  i just love this...

miss maeve this week has been filled with you trying out lots of sounds and noises.  i could listen to you babble on and on.  i think you are trying to make a woof or bark sound in response to hearing hobbes, but i'm not 100%.  and speaking of hobbes, he got sick this week and you and grandma took him to the vet to help him get better.  he was so lethargic and all he wanted to do was sleep in your book nook...he loves it in there.  he's better now after your loving care.

at forty four weeks i'm feeling overwhelmed with gratitude and love.  and you my dear, you are so squeezable, the root of so much of that joy.  your love and presence has transformed us and is was what made us want another little kiddo.  i'm giddy, just like you...you are always laughing, miss maeve.
