at thirteen months...

maeve, life with you is just silly.  you are so funny and happy.  you certainly make your desires known, but my do you it with a ton of humor.  and woman, this month you are on the move.  standing...
cruising...

crawling...
rolling...
on the move with your walker (note the bottle placement)...
 walking with a little help from dad...
i had to take this photo when changing your diaper, because this is what your warm little legs do each morning.  i never want to forget this...
and you are a pacifier collector, often swapping out the one in your left hand for the one in your right...
 
 when i was away for work dad sent me this picture.  i nearly melted...
 you and dad have been having lots of fun and you seem to really know da-da...
it's winter in our neck of the woods, so we've been bundling up for our time outside...
and you seem to be having fun out there...
we got some new adorable hats...
 and that darn coat is still a bit too big...
fuzzy bunny...
here you are bundled up for a chilly walk with a friend at twinbrook...

you and august had some fun this month nosing around in cabinets....
 exploring the fridge...
 sharing food...
 playing...
 and making music... 
we had a wonderful thanksgiving and spent time with nana and popsie and grandma and papaw.  you entertained the crowd... 

and ate lots of food...
and slowly destroyed a maeve-sized pumpkin pie...

you make us laugh so much each day...
and this month seems to have the most pictures of you eating in your highchair or seat...






it isn't just food, you've mastered the sippy cup... 
sloppily drinking from a glass...
and the other night you demanded uncle ben's unopened beer and coozie...
 
the other day i walked into the house tand said to dad "it's sooooooo" and i was about to say cold outside, but you thought i was going to say big...so you threw your hands up in the air...
and this month has been a time of bursts of sadness when hobbes comes under your seat to eat things you've accidentally dropped.  you get really upset and scream in hobbes direction and look to us for backup--we don't really react and then very quickly after you are fine, but this photo below sums it up...
we are getting into the christmas spirit.  we went to the yarmouth tree lighting the other night...
i took you last year and it was special to be there again together...
 
we put up our tree, which you like to look at, but aren't as interested in as we thought you'd be (phew)...
and here you are wearing some holiday garb...
we have an advent calendar and when we ask you where santa is, you look over at the calendar and try to say "ho, ho, ho"...but mainly your shoulders just move up and down.

it's been an incredible month.  i'm amazed by how much you understand and by how much you are putting together.  we can actually watch you learn...and it's unreal!  your thirteenth month brought a cuddlier kiddo, which we've loved.  it also brought someone that really loves to dance, is very interested in the holiday photo cards we've received and photos on the fridge, sleeps really well at night right now, is obsessed with books and has many favorites (doggies, hop a little jump a little, and baby faces), and who is quite interested in the remote control.

it seems like each day gets better and better, watching you grow up, learn, engage with us and the world.  it's overwhelmingly wonderful.  xo.
