We’re getting close! Somehow 8 more weeks seems both really short and really long!
In April, we celebrated Maggie’s half birthday (she doesn’t really get that yet but any excuse for a cupcake is a good enough reason for her!)
Maggie at 3.5 is exciting!
Right now, Maggie….
Loves to snack
No longer eats dairy (it “hurts her tummy”)
Has stopped napping for the most part
Is incredibly excited about her baby sister and talks to her already
Loves to play with her friends, her dolls/stuffed animals,
Loves to swim and is confident!
Can be very particular about what she wears
Is still obsessed with Sofia the First (its the best when she sings along in the car, her favorite song is “Anything”)
Things “anything” means nothing (ie if I ask her what she’s doing she says, “Anything”.)
Gets really sad and upset when she thinks she’s in trouble
Loves to paint
Loves to watch shows
Loves to go out and to help Mommy get ready and dressed up
Is super excited about her new umbrella and clock
Has recently started asking for a bicycle
Loves to try the (finally fixed) red truck with her friends in the cul-de-sac
Loves to buckle in her babies as well as herself! (new skill!)
Loves to talk about things she’ll do for the baby
Doesn’t wear her princess dresses nearly as often
Dresses up in accessories (princess shoes, sunglasses on her head, fan, headband)
Can be very moody in the morning (or any time of day…)

What do you think about having a baby sister?: Love her
What do you want to do at the beach?: Be with you and the baby
“I like playing with my baby sister and doing stuff with her.”
Fave color?: Yellow
Fave thing to wear?: Dresses
What do you like to do with your friends?: Play with them (and play with baby sister, she likes this cereal right?)
“Im going to play with my baby sister when she pops out of your tummy. Im going to play with her and help you change her clothes. We can put some cozy pajamas on her. I can hold her when she pops out like this. She’s gonna love that . She’s gonna love me. She’s gonna love her mommy her brother and her dad. She doesn’t know who holly is. I know holly but the baby doesn’t. I tell her who her is. Ill tell her right now”.
Maggie girl, we love you and can’t wait to see how you keep growing and changing (and staying the same too). The next few months are going to be exciting for sure!
