at forty nine weeks...

at forty nine weeks fall was in full effect, so we raked up a big pile of leaves and plopped you down in in to play.  you loved crinkling the leaves in your hands and patting the leaves all around you.  and then, a friend joined you...
this weekend was so beautiful.  lots of time outside.  lots of leaves...
at forty nine weeks you are on the move.  no longer army crawling, but up on all fours and getting around...
and you've outgrown you fleece suit, but you look so cute in it that we crammed you in just one more time...

at forty nine weeks you went on a special adventure to little diamond island with rachael and the boys.  here you are on the ferry apparently talking up a storm...
and minutes later you arrived...
here you are having your breakfast and watching the casco bay lines go by...
and rug modeling...
rachael took you on a really long walk through trails...
and down to the sea...
it was such a beautiful day, with the sun beaming down, that you guys build some sandcastles...

teamwork...
here you are back on the mainland after we got to see each other for a few minutes at the ferry terminal during lunch...

you and august were like feral cats when rachael turned her back for two seconds.  together you tipped over your bag, poured out the contents, were eating diapers, and prying open your formula jar.  another example of teamwork...
this weekend we took lots of walks in the woods.  this time of year reminds me so much of a year ago, when each weekend dad and i would take loooong walks with hobbes, wondering when you were going to arrive.  and now, here you are.  the happiest girl on cousins island, seen here giving dad a smile during your walk...

just cruising along...
this weekend we celebrated august's first birthday.  in celebration you wore your most colorful outfit...
at forty nine weeks i took a photo of you asleep in your carseat after a drive from portland.  you looked so peaceful and also so big.  everything seems long...your face, your arms, your body.  a big girl...
and speaking of long, look at those lashes...
miss maeve, at forty nine weeks we had all kinds of first.  i found you sucking your teeny little thumb in your carseat and found you standing in your crib when you woke up from a nap.  these small things are big things...and remind me that this next year is going to be new things every single day.  it's nearly impossible to change you as you wiggle all over, curious about what else you can explore.  so sometimes you crawl off diaperless...which i love.  you scurry around on the floor simply delighted.

i'm overwhelmed with emotions this week...which i attribute to you approaching the one year mark, being pregnant, loving you so fiercely, and the goodness that surrounds us.  xo.
