My sweet little Maeve Alberta is 6 years old! How did this happen? Maeve is everything. She has the best, most infectious laugh. People around us have always commented on her laugh and still do. She is thriving in kindergarten in a way unlike her older sisters (is it because of the pandemic or her personality?). She loves school. She loves learning her letters and numbers, she loves the rules, she loves her teacher and her friends. It's been an absolute joy to watch her blossom and show real maturity I didn't even know she had developed. Maeve is missing her bottom 4 front teeth and thinks the gappy adult teeth coming in look like castles. Her mind works in the most interesting of ways. She loves the cross country electric towers - "look my favorite things!" she said to us once on a road trip. Maeve's favorite thing is to play Toca World on the iPad. She also loves skipping forward in whatever show she watches (drives me nuts!). Enoch worships her. Maeve continues to be a snuggler, and when I recently denied her entrance to my bed in the middle of the night and she responded, "but we usually snuggle in the night," I knew I had to hold firm and tuck her into her own bed. Maeve loved having friends over to build gingerbread houses, eat cake and play traditional party games. It felt so normal and delightful. Her birthday gifts were things her sisters liked to do. It was heart warming and so special to watch Maeve build lego with Greta and then craft with Holly. How lucky she is to have 2 amazing older sisters.

Here's to many more years with my Maeve. Gosh, I love her.
