at forty three weeks...

at forty three weeks the photo above sums it all up.  you and i were sorting your next batch of clothes and i put you in the clothes bin...
when i took you out and sat you on my lap you grabbed the edge of the bin and pulled yourself up to stand...you know like you do that or something!  then i put you on the floors and bam, again...you pulled up to stand.  you were so incredibly proud, as the photo shows.  and then you began sorting clothes...
and once we got into clothes sorting mode we decided to try on your halloween costume. at forty three weeks you are the cutest fleece dragon there ever was...
we went for a bunch of walks this week and it felt like fall.  i loved being bundled up juuuust enough and putting you in cute fuzzy things. if you start to outgrow your dragon costume, well then I've decided we'll just wear it on our walks.  but for now, we just have you wearing your hoodie...
 
or the adorable coat that amelia let you borrow...
 
and while it felt like fall for most of the week, it was summer summer summer for the America's cup party that you and dad threw.  check it out...
 
you loved your captain's hat, which means you are most certainly your father's daughter.  dad used to wear his captain's hat in kindergarten and he kept a carrot in there for a snack.  true story.
at forty three weeks you had lots of daycare fun.  you and timmy thomas appreciated each others' stripes...
you focused on this toy and a rogue cheerio...

you got up close and personal with the critters at smiling hill farm...
you got your regular exercise in the jumper...
 
and then you and august made rachael do all the work as you went for a stroll...
 
at forty three weeks, we went back to school/new job shopping with dad and you rode on my back for the first time...
 
you loved pulling on my hair and checking yourself out in the full length mirrors. and speaking of checking it out...look at you working on your moves with dad...
all that activity means you are gobbling up food faster than we can make it and this week you are officially done nursing.  ready for snacks...


 
all that eating means that sometimes you take it a bit more than you can handle, which means we took some extra baths this week.  oh maeve d/mrs. splashypants...
at forty three weeks we started it off right with labor day...we took two long naps together which was such a nice way to start the week.  this week marked lots of new sounds and lots of da-das.  in fact it was the week of da-da!  dad had this week off between his old job and his new job.  he spent his time doing projects on the house in your bedroom and the upstairs bathroom...and cuddling with you! and you continue to be a good sleeper.  you wake dad up just once in the night to give you a bottle between 2 and 4.  maeve, i think you might be making dad into more of a morning person than he ever thought possible.  nice work.
 
i'm a little late with this week's post (sorry!), however as a result i can tell you with certainty that your forty fourth week is filled to the brim with of all the good things in life.  xo.
