Firsts:

1/12/15 - goes from sitting to crawling
1/19/15 - pointed to Eric and said "Dada"
2/6/15 - celebrated best-buddy Josh's First Birthday

Milestones:

Maggie still isn't crawling, but is getting closer every day.  She rolls or scoots on her bottom to get around the room.

She can go from laying to sitting but only in her crib. We're not sure how to she does it.

Thankfully, Maggie is back to sleeping through the night.

Both top teeth are about halfway in.

We occasionally give Maggie a formula bottle. She can easily feed it to herself.

Maggie can sort of pull up on things. She likes to stand when we help her.

One of her favorite activities is to pull things out of bags, boxes, or drawers.  She's great at  put-and-take.

Continues to be great at waving and clapping.

I realized this month that her clogged tear duct finally opened up! It's as if over night it was fine.

And oh, the Bewitching Hour.  Maggie really struggled with this as a newborn, but it's back with a vengeance.  She screams like a pterodactyl from about 4:30-6:00pm, of course when I am making dinner. Nothing seems to distract her.

Likes:

When Evie comes in to "play" first thing in the morning
Watching the big kids play
Eating shoes (we use shoes as bait to practice crawling)
Eating my phone
Eating paper
Listening to the bells at Mass
Playing in the bathtub with Evie

Dislikes:

 When I leave her eyesight
Waiting for the bacon to warm up (no seriously, she screams)
Excessive time in her high chair
Having toys taken away by sister


We Are:

So thankful Maggie is such an easy baby and a great sleeper
Anxious for a third though we know we need to wait
Enjoying every snuggle with both our girls
Really hitting a groove with having two kids - we seem to go out to eat, Mass, travel etc very smoothly now

  2. I keep thinking, she's so tall! And beautiful too. That first photo is stunning. Lena's like 4+ lbs heavier at 1, but Maggie is just as long. Love her!
