“Maeve Alberta”

One of the first things my girls did when we arrived in Calgary... Dress Ups! Maeve loves wearing this red dress and Holly wore these round glasses almost every moment of every day for the remainder of our trip. Childhood at its finest!

I made Maeve a second Smock Dress, this one in cotton and without sleeves for summer (the first was long sleeved and made from flannel). The fabric I used was from what I already owned. It's leftovers from a dress I made for Greta. I love this pattern. It feels so classic and sweet. I like the princess seams and big pockets. It's a simple dress, but more interesting than others. And, it comes together pretty easily!

Some new favorite photos of my Maeve with her special thing, her baby. Right now, Maeve is in a phase of undressing herself and her baby in bed when she's supposed to be sleeping, which you know, when she's supposed to be sleeping, it's definitely annoying. The baby doll was a gift for her first birthday. You just never know what kids are going to attach to and honestly, for a long time we doubted that she would attach to anything (besides nursing). But Maeve loves her baby (and her blanket) a lot. So sweet.

Some photos from a little neighborhood egg hunt at the local park. I like egg hunts and I don't. I like how cute my 2 year old is finding eggs and putting them in her bucket. I don't like the competition and the expectations that don't line up. Tempted to do our own egg hunt next year with friends? But I also love going to this one and seeing friends!

One of our family's favorite activities is riding bikes. Maeve is so much happier when she gets outside each day, especially if it's on the bike. When we ride fast downhill, she holds on, leans forward and yells, "weeee!" If I slow down, she tells me, "come on!"
