Five hundred

file9As of today Maisie has been with us for 500 days. I know that it's not all "that" long but to my ear it sounds so much longer than saying 1-year-four months-and-twelve-days. We had a nice morning of our 500th day with a visit from Georgia & Zoe. It was our first time meeting Zoe and she is such a smiley, happy little girl. And Georgia, even through her sleep deprived eyes you could see how happy she is to be a Mom. 

file5 Seeing Maisie next to Zoe made me think about how little Maisie was 500 days ago and how much she has grown.

file1 Five hundred days ago Maisie was 19 lbs - 2 oz, 29.75" tall, wearing 9 month clothes and size 3 shoes.

file2 As of today Maisie is 25 lbs, 34.75" tall, she mostly wears 18-24 month clothes and is almost into a size 6 shoe.

file3 We had a really nice but oh too short visit and the girls were so cute together.


We have a duck that decided to nest right near our front door, just under Maisie's bedroom window. IMG_1501a Yesterday I didn't see the duck around at all and the nest was empty so I thought the duck decided to just find a new, more private spot.

IMG_1499 Well this morning when I walked out I was surprised to see four duck eggs. I've already seen numerous little goslings and I'm looking forward to seeing the little ducklings soon, yeah!!



  1. Great pictures! It was great to visit with you and Maisie. Looking forward to it again soon.

    I know it was so great to get together with Georgia and Zoe. The girls were so sweet together! I loved the one where Maisie is hugging Zoe and Zoe is looking over Maisie's shoulder to see her mama. What a great day. And EllaKate is just thrilled you have ducks living at your house!

  3. Aw, happy 500 days guys! I got goosebumps when I read that.

  4. 500 days! I can't believe it!

    So glad you got to meet Zoe. She is a cutie, isn't she?

    Love that you are going to have baby duckies soon!

  5. Those 500 days have seemed to pass so quickly. I can barley remember the time when Maisie wasn't brightening your blog.

  6. Happy 500 days!!!!! How wonderful! Love the duck and eggs too! Wow! Maylin has a vine that grows nest to and above her window. She has a little birds nest there with a bunch of birds. She loves to sit in her room and watch them and hear them through the window. What fun for Maise to watch eggs and a duck! Lucky ducks you all are.

  7. Gorgeous girls!!!

    500 days, a nice visit from friends AND duck eggs?
    Well, life just doesn't get any better. Have a nice weekend.

  9. I don't know 500 days doesn't seem all that long to me. But then again I can't wait to get mine. Hope all is well with your family. Keep grinning.
