Maeve loves weapons. She loves to make weapon-y noises and loves to come after anyone. Especially Daddy.
Aren't Z's suspenders super awesome? I'm being serious. Mostly.In Irish history/mythology, there's a famous Maeve, the warrior queen of Connacht. She was brave and strong and powerful and wily... but had a few not-so-good qualities, too. Our Maeve will only be similar to her in the good ways, I have no doubt! She's a sweetie, our Maevesters. A tough sweetie.
Bran is, of course, a master instructor in the art of swordsmanship.
Yeah, our little not-yet-one-year-old knows what to do with a toy gun. She makes really cool sound effects, too. I remember perfectly the first time Bran thought about a gun, after not ever being exposed to them (as far as I know). They were a couple of months past two, we were actually on the Antarctica cruise, and the little guy accidentally made a gun with his index finger and thumb, and he looked at it... and we saw something just click. He made a tentative gun noise and the rest is history. Maeve... yeah, there was no way her innocence was lasting even that long.
She likes the light sabers, but they're a little heavy and awkward for her to wield one-handed.The foam swords are perfect! She likes Bran's ax, too. It's really cute. Almost every day when Z gets home from work, she'll jabber at him and have him hold her, and when he puts her down, off she'll go to get a sword to attack him with. She sure loves her daddy :)
And a little video, since obviously your life will be unfulfilled until you see her in action, and we can't have that...
