at fifty weeks...

at fifty weeks you are moving, my dear.  you pull yourself up, you stand, you walk with a walker, you get where it is that you want to go.  it's amazing to see your little body in action.

at fifty weeks you had some fun eating cheerios, which you loved...
and sometimes it is hard to get them all in your mouth...
while getting ready for bed the other night, you went exploring in your closet.  and you found the hat that jeff and weenie gave you.  look how cute you are...
this week at daycare, you and august celebrated his birthday with lunch out at a restaurant...
and you played together (pants optional)...
at fifty weeks it was chilly.  so we bundled you up and hit the road for some fun walks...
a bundle of fleece...
and often when we get home you are already on the move before we can take of your gear.  so it comes off in stages...
this little monster had feet that were too slippery to make it up the stairs...
at fifty weeks you walked with your new-to-you walker.  we put in down, stood you next to it and this is what happened...

and while out for a walk in your stroller, i noticed your blanket moving all around.  i stopped and came to the front of your stroller and captured this...
at fifty weeks you tried on a little orphan annie wig, which was about the cutest thing i've ever seen...
at fifty weeks we had the one year celebration for you and all of your birthroots buddies.  it was amazing to see you all doing your thing, chewing on toys, getting around, and interacting with one another.  you were simply delighted to have so many friends over.  you just kept giggling and laughing...over and over.  nina made a poster for each baby with some stats from the year...i just adore it, mrs. d...
you and your buddies lined up for snacks and cupcakes...
and mr. hobbes parked himself under all the kiddos and was showered with crumbs and snacks...
you took in the sights from your highchair...
and showed off a whole range of expressions...



oh and this one is my favorite.  those big eyes, that wispy hair, those soft cheeks...
this week was so fun.  you are joy and laughter, curiosity and love.  week fifty brought a cuddlier baby than we've seen in a while.  one night you were a bit upset and i held you for a long time.  when i went to put you down, you still wanted to snuggle.  so i brought you into bed and tucked you in by the snoogle and we cuddled.  i loved that and you clearly did, too. xo.
