Maggie Update

I can't believe Maggie is already 4 months old, going on 5 months soon! It seems as if so much has happened in that short time. I thought I would post a bunch of pictures to let everyone know what Maggie has been up to lately! I thought it would be fun to write from Maggie's perspective.

Hi everyone! I am only 4 months old, but I already have LOTS of nicknames....

Aunt Carrie and cousin Kirsten call me "Mags-dalena"

Cousin Jon-Jon calls me "Maggie Magoo"

Cousin Vasi calls me "Magdalunee"... and she always says I'm "so sweet!" Her little sister Susy can't talk yet, but I think we will be best friends one day!

Grandpa and Marmee call me "Little Fiddle"

Mr. Tony and Ms. Emily call me "Maggie Moo". They are my best friend Hazel's mommy and daddy. I'll talk about her more later.

My mom warned me that her side of the family loves to give nicknames. I wonder how many I'll have when I am a whole year old!

I spend almost every day going on walks outside and playing with my best friend Hazel. She has a nickname's Hazelbean. We are going to keep growing up together. Having her here in Santa Rosa makes being away from family a bit easier.

Last month, her mom and dad invited me and my mom to go to the Monterey aquarium with them. It was so much fun! I saw lots of the ones daddy always watches movies about. Even though I cried the WHOLE 3-hour trip home, I hope we can go again soon....and that daddy can come next time! He'd love it there.

I've been on a plane 2 times! The second time, mommy and I went without daddy. I had a diaper blowout on the trip there and on the trip back.I don't think mommy wants to take me to Portland without daddy anymore :) In Portland, this last trip, I got to go to cousin Vasi's birthday, and I spent some very special time with Grandjo, my great-grandma. I don't know if I'll get to see her makes me sad. I think it cheered her up to see me. I'm her 35th great-grandchild. I also got to see Grandpa Harold and Grandma Jeanie again! I pulled on Grandpa's was fun! They could only visit for a little while, but I'm so glad they came to Portland to see me.

In March, Aunt Carrie, Kirsten, Jonathan, and my Grandma Jeanie came to visit us!!! My mom was reak sick while they were here, so Aunt Carrie took care of mommy and me while she was here! It was so much fun to have my cousins here! We went to the park every day so mommy could rest at home. I LOVED seeing Grandma Jeanie...she always plays with me and teaches me new things!


For mommy's 1st Mother's Day, daddy and I got up early and walked to the shopping center to get her pastries, coffee, flowers, and See's chocolates. She was REALLY happy....but maybe her favorite part of it all was sleeping in a little. We did all this on Saturday. We went to Berkeley for lunch that day, and this is my mom's new favorite picture of me from when we were there! I love to wear my pink hat!

On Sunday, Mother's Day, we went spent the day in Redwood Valley, at Grandma June's house. Daddy made everyone dinner. Uncle Wayne was there too! He liked playing with me! I love visiting great-grandma June....she is so kind and loving! I'm named after her too!

And last of all, in my news for you...I had my first taste of food last week! Mommy let me suck on a watermelon rind because my gums were hurting, and it was really hot outside. I LOVED IT!!!! I can't wait to have it again someday


WEll, that's all for now! Thanks for checking in with us! We are excited about the summer and lots of adventures to go on as a family! Love to all our friends and family!!

Thank you Christy for the beautiful post. If we can't be there, than that is the next best thing! :) Lots of photos and descriptions...and I love how you did it from Maggie's perspective! The photo of GrandJo and her is something-she is so aware and happy!
Blessings to Daniel, Maggie and you,
Love Aunt Helen and crew.

I just saw this post (it was a low computer week last week!!!) and it's absolutely precious!!! Thanks for posting all the awesome pix. It sounds like you had an awesome mother's day! The part about Grandjo brought tears to my eyes.

I love you,
