7 Month Photo Shoot

Of course when Anne was in town we had to take pictures of Maeve and Finn. Here are a few of my favorites that Anne took while Grandma Brigid and Aunt Anne were watching Maeve last Thursday! Isn't she a great photographer?! Wish she lived closer so we could do this all the time!

Mr and Mrs Scott Kirchner

We had a great time celebrating Scott and Morgan's wedding this weekend. We enjoyed the rehearsal dinner at Jake O'Connors in Excelsior where Eric gave his best man's speech. On Saturday,  June 28th, Morgan and Scott got married at St. Bart's in Wayzata. They will share their wedding anniversary with Brigid and Ed who celebrated their 39th wedding anniversary on the 28th. Brigid and Ed stayed in town for the week to watch Maeve during the ceremony and the reception. After the ceremony, we enjoyed a cruise on Lake Minnetonka to the reception at Bayview Event Center. Although the lake had very high water levels and we couldn't go more than 5 MPH and it stormed most of the ride, we still enjoyed looking at the houses on the lake and toasting to the new couple. Maeve was very smiley all night as you can tell from the pictures. She is excited to welcome Morgan into the family.

Edmonds Family Visit

This past weekend was Maeve's Baptism. We had a photographer take pictures so I'll post those when we get them! The Edmonds family - Paul (Kate's brother) and his family (Marcia, Hunter and Kaelyn), Anne (Kate's sister) and her son (Finnegan) and Brigid and Ed (Kate's parents) - visited for a few days after the baptism. Eric's family graciously hosted us at their cabin on West Battle Lake. It was Maeve's first trip up north and her first boat ride. The family enjoyed kayaking, boating, tubing, playing yard games and walks with the babies. More details on the Baptism to come later.....

Enjoy the pictures.

7 Months Old

Maeve is constantly changing - not on the move yet - but will be very soon. She is sitting up on her own, rolling over all the time and making lots of noises. See this video:

She moved up to the next room at daycare so is with older babies that crawl. So strange to see babies moving when we feel like we just saw these babies on the first day of daycare.

Food is the biggest change in the past month. She's drinking about 5 bottles of formula a day and eating 3 meals. We've tried most of the fruits and veggies from either Gerber or Earth's Best. Kate's made some food too but she seems to like the store bought food better right now. Next up to try - yogurt and avocado! She's tried some finger foods and just needs to learn to open her fist of food when she brings it to her mouth. As you can tell from the picture, Sadie knows where her next meal is coming from! Maeve always smiles when Sadie walks by. She is starting to pull Sadie's tail, so we'll have to watch out for that.

Hope everyone is having a great summer so far. We are loving the warmer weather.
