Neglected seems to be the theme of the month. The blog has been neglected. What used to be almost daily posts has since turned into one or two posts per month. If I wasn't the one writing it I wouldn't be reading it. I'd be pretty pissed off that the posts were few and far between. And frankly I probably would have moved on to other things. With that being said, I will tell you that this will be the new and improved adventures of Marvelous Maeve and the Web. I can't promise daily posts, but I will say 2 or 3 a week will be common. Look for more posts. More pictures of the girls and more media hype. Ok, maybe not the media hype but we will be posting much more.
So since the last post and what has changed. Well for starters, Maeve is taking steps. She isn't officially walking yet, but is close. I would call it walking but in reality its only 4 feet at a time. Walking to me is walking. Not walking a little bit then dropping to the floor to crawl. She listens very well. When we tell her to walk she walks. It's way too cute.
Maeve is also quite the singer. She can't really say many words yet but she sure can sing. Her vocabulary is pretty small. Ball, Daddy, Mommy, Baloon, Thank you,what's that, Bunny, abby and ollie, and MINE MINE MINE MINE seems to be her favorite. Yes its very easy to tell she has an older sister.
She cracks us up. She is so different from her sister. Charlotte made us laugh, but Maeve. Well she just does things you wouldn't expect. She loves making a mess. Ok that is expected. She loves playing with water. Ok, also expected. She loves copying everything we do. She wants to drink out of cups. She wants to eat with a fork and knife. She just acts so grown up it makes us sick. She doesn't like being upside down. She isn't a fan of the thrill rides like Charlotte is. Charlotte loves fast. She will be the first one on a roller coaster. Maeve will get sick on a roller coaster but would be the first one in a haunted house taunting her older sister calling her a whimp. Thats just the way it is. We can tell already. Charlotte is emotional. Maeve is even keeled. Either way we are in for it as these girls continue to grow up.
With that being said, dad had a little Daddy Daughter weekend. We packed as much action into two days as we could. A trip to the Friendly Farm (where the animals are a little too friendly). Charlotte will now be traumatized by the goats that jumped up on her to get the bag full of food. Maeve, well she thought it was funny. Then lunch. Then a trip to the grocery store to pick up lobsters for dinner. A trip to get ice creams. And finally a trip to the beach. Exhausting but so rewarding having them all to myself.
