Today, Mairead discovered another new game. The wind was blowing the curtains, so she investigated and found that they make for a great game of peek-a-boo!

She is also working on feeding herself. Mostly, she just likes to play with her food, but she's getting there.
Here's more hiding... this is the bottom of her changing table. In looking at these pictures, I think it's pretty funny that every time she does something she is not supposed to do, I stop and take a picture before moving her to safety.
This one isn't really a trick, but when Connor came over this weekend, he sat in her walker and she used it to pull herself up to play with him. They are so cute together!

Then, her Grampy made pancakes in the shape of her initials. He used to do this for Maghan and all of the Monaghan kids when we were little.
Mairead loved the pancakes, and especially loved eating them all by herself.
Now that she has mastered the skill of crawling, she is ready to move on to bigger and better things, like climbing up steps.
And she loves to feed herself those little cereal puffs.
She is definitely going to be an independent person, which is both good and bad. We want her to be a strong and independent person, but we can already tell that the word 'no' is not going to be one of her favorites! Hmmm.... maybe she is actually more like her aunt... She is definitely fascinated by Jen, and she seems to have inherited her mischievous expressions. We could be in for a lot of trouble!
