7 months old...


Guess who is officially 7 months old today?? I bet you can't..... It has been so much fun to see the changes in Maeve in just this short time. When Stacy and I traveled to Ethiopia and met her just a month and two days ago, she acted more like a 4 month old. Since then, she has been making strides and is now right on track with her milestones. These are just a few of the talents that she holds:

She can roll in both directions... depending on how motivated she is, she can actually roll multiple times in a row. It would appear that she's not often motivated however... ha.



She is eating solids... and loving it -- despite the horrific looks she gives when something new is introduced...



She can talk in complete sentences... at least in her world. She has many many stories that she tells. Here she is at the head of the table talking up a storm. A lot of her tales start with "da da da".... umm, Maeve, I hate to break it to you this way, but....



She can sit, with assistance... and no longer folds like a pancake...


She has an impressive plie move when jolly jumping and can reach great heights...


But, despite being such a big girl now... she still needs to come in for a snuggle every now and then.

Just looking at her makes me want to jump up & down right next to her in her jumpy-toy. She is so luminously beautiful.
I know you'll have a merry Christmas! XO
