at forty eight weeks...

this was the week of foods.  you love using your little pinchers, picking up treats, and popping them in your mouth.  when you are done you usually drop lots of the floor...you haven't quite figured out that you are feeding hobbes yet, but he's certainly figured it out.  from peas to strawberries...yogurt drops to puffs, lady you are all over it.  and we also managed to get food all over you during eating and bib removal...
dad captured this one of you eating green beans.  look at those eyes...only slightly terrified...
when you aren't eating you love spending time in your chair, playing with toys...
entertaining the crowd...
and being a colorful model...
at forty eight weeks you get around.  you cruise over to the stairs and pull yourself up on the first step.  you can get yourself from the kitchen up into the living room.  and you had a scary run in with the lady bug below...we pushed her over your way while you were crawling and you burst into tears when you came face-to-face...
at forty eight weeks we took lots of strolls.  your little ears were too much for me to handle on a recent walk at twinbrook...
i couldn't help but cradle your little face in my hands...
we took a nice walk to madeleine point after work.  dad was away this week, so we went to check to make sure his boat was still there...
here you are at daycare drop-off...
 and all bundled up in your little fleece suit...
at forty eight weeks we found a jumparoo at a yardsale and boing, boing, boing...you are on the move...
you've been grabbing lots of books lately and doing some reading...
at forty eight weeks you had a great time at daycare.  you pulled yourself around the kitchen...

 had mealtime and strawberry sharing with your buddy...
posed next to an m (for maeve) mug that made your eyes look so blue... 
hung out on the floor and did some semi-clothed reading... 
at forty eight weeks we found you sitting up in your crib and also pulling yourself up onto your knees.  what a big lady.  you also pulled yourself up onto your footstool and worked your way around.  you were so proud and you could see how much you were working to get there.

this week one of your notes from daycare said you were very silly that day, which i just love.  you giggle so much and love being playful with dad.  we had a good time this weekend doing the wa-wa-wa-wa sound, where i put my fingers by your mouth and patted your lips.  you figured out how to make the sound and just loved it.  i got my hand licked multiple times in the process.  i love watching you learn and figure things out.

maeve d., i just look and you and smile and i'm in disbelief that we are approaching your first birthday.  oh but that a post for a few weeks from now.  until then we'll keep talking and singing and dancing.  xo.
