When we visited the Stein's,  Maeve demonstrated that she had learned how to take a pacifier out of someone else's mouth.  Today in church she was playing with another baby, and the other baby demonstrated the same skill, except she took the pacifier out of Maeve's mouth.

Jill thinks Maeve is such a woman because she likes shopping, loves carrying her purse, is always "cleaning" things with napkins or washcloths, and has a southern woman's wave.

Maeve was blowing kisses today.

Maeve and I watched the Indianapolis 500 again this year.  With all of Jill's brainwashing about how great Target stores are, Maeve was happy to see the Target team win.

Maeve likes her bag and doll.  She gets the bag the first thing in the morning and puts it around her neck.  She knows how to give the bottle to the doll, when she isn't chewing on it.  Jill thinks Maeve learned to carry bags around from carrying the milk into Nanny Carol's in the morning.

During Maeve's bath she took the sponge and was wiping out one of the cups that she plays with in the tub.  She was helping clean it.

One of Maeve's favorite places to explore is our pantry.  She likes to gnaw on my little boxes of raisins.  We found her eating instant oatmeal off the floor.  She had chewed through a packet.  Maeve's teeth marks on our food often looks like mice.  Once she even tried to eat hot-dogs that were still in the wrapper.

Maeve has figured out our monetary system.  She got Jill's wallet from her purse, pulled out a credit card, Jill's license and $20 and started heading for her play yard.

Maeve had enough of Liam, the other baby that Nanny Carol watches, today.  When Jill got there and told Maeve that it was time to go, Maeve went into the living room, got the two bags and her sweater.  Jill was talking to Carol for a few minutes, but Maeve was waiting at the door, ready to go.

In Sunday School today we asked Maeve where her belly was.  Matt was surprised that she would pat her stomach when we asked her to.  She knows where most of her body parts are.  I was trying to close the rear door on my station wagon and Maeve was in the way.  I told her to watch her head.  She started patting her head.

Maeve also took a tissue and wiped off the VCR in Sunday School.  She is such a little helper.

Maeve figured out that going off the bed head-first is a bad idea, and today slid down feet-first.

Maeve likes to "pat" Liam on the head when he is at Nanny Carol's.  I'm not sure if she is being friendly or is guarding her turf.

Sunday, May 7, 2000
Maeve got some birthday presents from people at church.  Two people got her horses.  Chris Ehrisman made Maeve a rocking horse in wood shop at school.  Jill almost cried because it was so nice of Chris to think of Maeve.  Maeve loves to sit on it, hang onto the handles and rock back and forth.

April got Maeve a "stick pony", with a horse's head attached to a broomstick sort of thing.  If you squeeze the horse's ears it makes galloping noises or whinnying.
