Six month anniversary and the rescue squad

1 Today marks our six month anniversary of Maisie Day and us becoming a family of three!

I know that I say this each month but it's difficult to remember a time before Maisie, she fills not only our days, nights and all available time but she fills our hearts and we just love her more than words can express. This has been the best six months and we know that there's so much more to come and it's only going to get better and better. A big shout out to all our travel mates and friends who share this wonderful anniversary with us,congratulations!

It's just past noon and Maisie is down for her nap but oh what a morning we've had. This morning we got together with our library play group and just as Maisie and I were about to walk into Erin's home I heard Jessie up at the street start a chant of OMG, OMG and Karen saying she was going to call the police. Maisie and I walked back up to the road to find little Ava accidentally locked in the car. Ava even got the keys out of Jessie's bag and was pushing buttons on the key fob but unfortunately only managed to continue locking the door instead of hitting the unlock button.
2 Luckily cool heads prevailed and a big fire truck arrived within probably 6 minutes of the call to help with the rescue.

3 It took just a minute for the lock to to be popped and for a very happy Mommy and Ava reunion.
4 The firefighters were great with the the children and provided them all with helmets and badges then were kind enough to pose for a rescue well done celebratory picture. The babies from left to right: Alexander, the calm & cool rescued Ava, a screaming Maisie (it's a group piccie would you expect anything different?!?!), Tommy and Katie. This was definitely a play date to be remembered but not repeated. After Maisie's nap we still have a full afternoon of activities so our fun day will continue.


  1. Poor Miss M and those darn group photos. I just don't know what to say...she makes me smile :)

    I have the cell phone if you want it back. Talk to you later and ..
    please stay away from the hot fireman.

  2. Whew! That was a nervous moment for Ava's mom I'm sure!

    Happy six months home! Poor Maisie! Doesn't like group shots, hmmmmm?

    I hope you have fun this afternoon.

  3. Oh Happy 6 month anniversary! What a wonderful day!

    Love the pic with the kids in their hats. Priceless!

    My mom locked me in the car when I was a baby by accident. She lived in an apartment building and ran to get the maintenance man. He popped the lock and got me out. I slept through the whole thing!

  4. Happy 6 months!!!

    Glad everything turned out alright with the locked car incident. Love the group photo (screaming M and all).

  5. Hard to believe it has been 6 months already!

    The firehats are too cute.

    Masie- I'm a friend of Tess'. Where did you get that absolutely fab dress you are wearing in your 6 month a family photo. you are a styling queen.

  10. Happy 6 months!!!

  11. bwah ha ha - never a dull moment!

  12. Happy six months! She is so precious and we love her too :D Especially Ian!

    OMG ~ that happened to me once when Ian was about nine months old. TG for OnStar which we had just gotten :D

  13. Happy 6 months together. How nice if the firemen to give out hats, badges and have photos taken. Poor Maisie girl and those groups photos though. ;-)

  14. Happy six month anniversary! What a happy (except for group pictures)and beautiful girl Maisie is. I remember Jarod locked himself in the car when he was a toddler - he pretended to be the driver (while I unloaded grocceries)and pushed all the buttons in the car and the automatic doors locked. He went from happy driver to screaming bloody murder in one second!
    Never a dull moment!

    happy 6 month anniversary. Feels like 6 years to me!

    Glad it's a happy ending for Ava & her mom. Now, let's talk about where you keep your spare set of car keys.....

  16. Oh my gosh how scarey!!! Down here in FL, especially once summer hits, I swear at least three or four times a week we hear stories of locked toddlers/babies in cars. Good for your friend acting sooo fast. Sadly, one young mother left her baby in the car yesterday to go shopping... eeeyup... for 37 minutes and yesterday was over 90 degrees outside! This mother lied about how long she was gone and even smiled in her mug shot... I just don't get it. Anyway, the baby was taken to the hospital with life threatening injuries (her temp was still over 100 after being out of the car for 20 min) and later released to family. I'm done venting... good for your friend again... glad to hear it all worked out!! :)

  17. Happy 6 months!

    Love the group photo!

  18. Oh Maisie sweetie. You just don't like group photographs, do you?

    So glad the story had a happy ending and fun props for the little ones.

    Happy 6 months!

    Karyn, Jim, and Kai

  19. What a great story. And happy 6 month anniversary, Lisa, Maisie and Eammon. You make a wonderful family.

  20. Happy 6 months! It goes by so quickly, doesn't it? I've been following your blog for a long time and really enjoy it! Maisie is such a sweetheart. I just started a new blog with pics of our little girl we adopted from China in Sept. 05. Check it out if you have a chance. :)

  21. Happy 6 months with Maisie! She's still so darn cute, even upset!

  22. Love those pics with the rescuers.
