A current ritual: late night cereal and comics (with a side of camera shyness).

Maggie at 4.5

Maggie’s half birthday was on April 7th and we celebrated with a colorful cake!  (We’re sitting together on the couch watching the “grownup” Beauty and the Beast while I attempt to write.)

Maggie girl,

  • are determined and so enthusiastic
  • are obsessed with using the remotes yourself
  • play with magnatiles, barbies, and babies
  • love to ride your bike everyday
  • want to be with people as much as possible

Jackson had a teacher workday today and it was BEAUTIFUL outside.  I think NCMA might be my favorite place in Raleigh.

Maggie was very eager to help me this week with thank you notes for both her birthday and baby gifts.  She did an excellent job stamping our return address 🙂

Maggie loves snail mail, she even writes letters back and forth with her good friend Chloe (as I type this she is writing a note to chloe at her craft table in the playroom).
