Well, as you can see, my belly keeps growing! This was Sunday, the 3rd. I was 25 weeks. (I’m over 26 weeks now.) I truly feel as big as I was at 9 months with Maggie, but the scale and the measuring tape say otherwise. This picture was taken just outside our front door. You can see the windchime behind my head. Maggie likes to hit it to make music.
The Picture above is Maggie right after we returned from church Sunday. Can you see her sleepy eyes? She is always ready for a nap when we get home from church – and so are we!
She Loves her bath time!
This is a new development this week. Maggie has figured out how to open the cabinet doors, so here she is, dragging things out of the cupboard.
And with her shades, she’s ready for the day! Who needs clothes?
What else is new? She’s started walking. We’ll have to put together a clip of video from her walking and eating birthday cake. For now, I’ve gotta run – to catch up with her!
Make sure the speakers are turned on… you may have to click the speaker icon.
Oh – Can you believe it? Our big girl is a year old today! This morning we woke up early, and went into Maggie’s room as she was waking up for her first bottle. We sang Happy Birthday to her and gave her a present to open. She wasn’t quite sure what to do with it, but once I got her started she tore into it.
We gave her a colorful book called “Five Little Ducklings”, and each of the little plush ducklings sticks out of the book, so you can feel them. She loved it. We got the whole thing on video, and I’m going to upload it later today. We’re also putting together a slide show of pics from Maggie’s first year, and of course there will be pictures of her birthday party tomorrow!! What a fun weekend! So stay tuned for more to come.
PS – We want to wish a very Happy Birthday to Melissa and Dwayne, who share Maggie’s special day; and also to Teesa and her twin brother Adam, who celebrate their birthdays tomorrow! Have a special day, guys – we love you!
