Yay to Swimming!

Maggie just started her first swim class! Seana and I both love the water and wanted to get Maggie in the water as soon as possible! This class is just to familiarize her with water and ensure she is comfortable when in it. It was a lot of fun... we sang nursery rhymes and twirled and swooshed are way through the class!

It was great! I never knew I would enjoy the wheels on the bus so much!

First Word!


She has been babbling it for some time now but today she actually said it with the meaning of saying she wanted me!!

Here is a video of the babble, this was from May 12th...

Maggie got her first hair cut today! She had this little rat tail whose time had come. So we ponytailed it up and Phaedra our Indy Salon Queen did the honors of clipping it off! Here are her before and after photos and a video of the deed, unfortunately I couldn't keep Maggie's attention and get a view of the actual cutting but the clip is still worth showing. We love Maggie's new Do!

Rocky Mountain High~Colorado!

Thanks to Seana's work schedule a trip to Colorado came to being. Of course this meant that Maggie and I got to accompany Mutti on a business trip... So while Seana was hard at work Maggie and I visited.... Or at least tried to visit as many people as we could.

I also attempted to take as many pictures as I could... The day I didn't was of course the day we met up with the most people. So here is a run down of our trip!

Sunday we packed up for our trip... Maggie enjoyed pulling herself up on the luggage and banging on the top!


We got up super early and caught our flight! We packed a little Baby Einstein to entertain Maggie if she was awake and unruly... it is amazing how much she focuses on her show! Here are some pictures of her putting my Fuzzy Pink SkullCandy headphones to good use!

When we got to Denver we met up with Desiree for breakfast at one of my NEW favorite breakfast spots SNOOZE!!

I am in love with their pancakes... I ordered their "flight of pancakes" where you get 3 pancakes and you pick the pancake (that's right they have the tastiest specialty pancake flavors!)... so I went with Pinneapple Upside Down Pancake, Red Velvet Pancake and Blueberry Lemon Bar Pancake!!! OH MY GOD HEAVEN IN MY MOUTH!!!

Then it was off to Colorado Springs where Maggie got comfortable with her new play area!

Once we were settled in we headed over to Robyn's for Pizza!

Here Maggie shows Robyn what else she can use her credit card for!

We got to hang out with Jenn and eat some sushi at our favorite Sushi place AI on Centennial!

We dropped in and visited Willow and her little package of joy Jackson!

Wednesday afternoon we stopped in and had coffee/lunch with Arlene!
Arlene's glasses were a hit!
Wednesday night we met up with a lot of great people at Old Chicago's I wish I had my camera out for more of it but I got this keeper of Angela and Maggie! Needless to say I think our next visit the venue will have to be more kid friendly!

Hanging out in the hotel.... what a mess we made!
We stopped in and visited Tessa at her work!
Maggie and Tessa!
For our lunch on Thursday we got the opportunity to meet up with Perri, a very dear friend of mine... actually a very dear person from my past, I used to babysit her when she was a kid and now she is all grown up and living in the Springs!

Perri and Maggie hanging outside Poor Richards!

Thursday night...
We met up with our friend Susan at Red Robin in Castleton! It was great seeing her!



We met up with some of our favorite Denver people at the Denver Aquarium for lunch and to see the exhibits.

It was a great meal with great company.... FYI there were 2 Heathers present. One being Maggie's Aunt Heather!

One of the highlights was petting & feeding the stingrays!!! Heather (the blonde Heather) got nicked by one when she was feeding it... The video below is not of that instance just of a sting ray I got to pet.

Big Over Night

This last week I keep catching myself in awe of how big Maggie is. It is like she grew overnight. She has doubled in size since she was born looking at her I feel like she has tripled in size!!

I just feel like my baby is turning into a little girl so much faster than I ever imagined that she would.


You all may or may not have noticed a recent on slot of blog posts... but they are all from April... You have been a victim of back dating! I am finally getting all caught up on blogs... I have a list of drafted blogs that needed video or pics to post and I finally got them uploaded and put together to post.

Because I can, I have made the executive decision to back date Maggie's milestone blogs to either the day it happened or within a couple days of the event so that when we go back to read we can see the date it occurred on or near to.

The bad thing about back dating is some blogs get back dated past more recent posts... but a necessary evil for the sake of logging things chronologically.

So if you feel moved to see more of Maggie, you may want to look back through older posts from time to time to see if there is one or two that got snuck in when you weren't looking.

The Stand....

Maggie seems to only be crawling to get to a stand. Here is a little clip of her practicing her moves.
