at forty two weeks...

little maeve...it's official, you have now been out in the world longer than you were in the womb.  in those forty two weeks you gone from a little lump of baby to someone who can control the room with her belly laugh and array of expressions.  this week i'm stuck by how special our family is...i'll start with hobbes who trails you in the most adorable way, dad who has been loving on you endlessly and so incredibly helpful in all the tasks and things it takes to keep our house going, and you...i'll let the pictures below speak for themselves...

at forty two weeks you went to camp...twice!...and had so much fun eating sand...
 demonstrating just how far you can pull your pants up...
getting a fishing lesson from wilder and a reassuring hand from august...
mailing letters...
 taking a dip with august...
modeling your new bathing suit...
and showing off those baby blues...
we also spent a day at uncle evan's camp over the weekend.  here you are with lila, you were captivated...
this was a week of lots of new-to-you toys.  thanks nana and popsie for my activity center...
and thanks for the help popsie...
and thanks steve and zelda for my car...
 and my ball dispenser....
and thanks papaw for rigging up a shade for the patio...
at forty two weeks grandma documented the moment when her suspicions that you are a genius were confirmed, when i asked you "where is maisy?" and you pointed to her three times on three different pages.  genius...
at forty two weeks we went for a visit to pemaquid point...

and took a family picture... 
 and we went inside to the indian store and tried on a few hats.  one with lots of shark teeth...

 and one with lobster oogly eyes...
at forty two week you hopped back in the backpack and loved being high up for the ride... 
 the hat posse...
 aaaand ready for a nap...
you've been exploring more with food and eating a lot.  here you are smashing blueberries and watermelon everywhere and then feeding it to hobbes...
at forty two weeks we took some nice walks after work...
made a birthday video for a friend...
 
and practiced rolling all over the place...
miss maeve, it was a fun week.  aren't they all?  oh but this week feels like we are on the cusp of lots of big things.  the discovery, the curiosity, and the wonder...it's amazing to watch.  we are starting to taper off with nursing, which just makes you seem older...you've made your preferences known.  

i continue to be amazing by your capacity for happiness and your range of expressions...
oh and those toes, don't even get me started on those plump love nuggets.  xo.
