Maeve, oh Maeve. Tonight when I was telling my mom about Maeve, she pointed out that one of the challenges this big age gap gives us is that Maeve is going to want to do what her sisters do and feel frustrated when she’s too young! Fortunately, the big sisters are really patient most of the time. I couldn’t help but snap a couple of photos of Maeve “helping” sweep. Add a couple annoyed squeals when she doesn’t get to do it her exact way and that’s my baby! Reminds me of Holly vacuuming when she was two.

We don’t have a dishwasher in our apartment which is kind of awesome. Conor and I keep meaning to give our girls more responsibility, but it’s easier to do everything ourselves. Here in Ecuador, the girls take turns doing dishes, wiping the table and sweeping. And it’s awesome. Of course, we sometimes still help them with dishes. But it’s been so great to have them pitch in more!

Also, those cheeks!
