"This is just plain old Maya face."
"I like to call this 'squishy face.'"
"This is called 'piggy nose.'"
"I think I will call this one 'sleepy eyes.'"
"I'm leaving on a jet plane. I'll be back next Sunday."
"Don't try to feed me turkey, or I might sneeze on you."
"Mommy, I feel yucky."
"Please let me take this Tylenol."

"No, this is not an optical illusion - I'm actually standing on my own! Not gonna lie though - it was only for a second."
Anyway, on Saturday, we had brunch at our house, and then we met our friend, Beth, for some chat time. It was a really nice weekend. Yesterday we laid low and Kevin reformatted our pokey computer. It was an eventful, yet relaxing weekend. We'll be travelling to Connecticut on Wednesday morning. I can't wait!
"Thank you for putting me to bed, Mommy. Now that it's morning, let's get our brunch on!"
Oh, and here's a shout out to cousin Jacob, who is getting his tonsils out this morning. We're rooting for you, Jacob! Can't wait to see a tonsil-less Jacob and have some ice cream together!

"I'm ready for brunch!"
"Alex, come here and play with me!"
"I'm very interested in playing with my bottle."
"Hey Nash? Tell Margot to wake up and come play with us!"
"Mommy, look at all my friends!"
"Nashy, watch what you're doing with that hammer!"

"I've never had pork before, but this little piggy tastes gooooood."
"Hey Alex, whatcha doin' over there?"
"Can I have a hug, Alex?"
"Please deliver that book, directly into my mouth, Alex."
"Or... yeah... I could just eat your finger."
"Mommy, I can't wait to babysit little Charlie!"
"That baby is a lot smaller than me..."
"... but he's so cute!"
"Charlire, wait 'til you're big enough for the Jumperoo. You'll love it!"
"Mom, that was fun, but babysitting is exhausting!"

"I went to my favorite store yesterday. Can you guess where I am?"
"You like my furry slippers?"
"Hi, we're home."
"We're having fun at home!"

"I'm just hanging out in the doorway, waiting for dinner, and watching Mommy cook."
"Wait, we're eating the same food? Wahoo!!! But Mom? I still want what's in your bowl... even though it's the same thing."
"That was soooo good, and I'm sooooo full."

Anyway, did I mention that Maya has learned how to wave? Yes, she now routinely waves to Kevin and me. It's so cute. She'll be playing with her toys, and when she looks up at us, she waves and smiles. It's too adorable for words. She has also learned to take off her bib when she's finished eating. She'll eat until she's full, and then she'll just go ahead and take off her bib. It's like she's telling me that she's done. Hmmmm... What else?? Oh, she's working really hard to get up on all fours, but hasn't quite mastered it yet. I'll keep you posted. I can't wait!
"Good morning! I feel better today!"
"That baby doesn't look sick at all!"
"You like my ponytail? Mommy thinks it's silly, but at least I can see!"

Maya has a cold this weekend. Yup, her very first runny nose. Unfortunately, it's taken a toll on her good sleeping habits. On Friday night, she was awake for almost 4 hours in the middle of the night. No fun. No fun at all. She was kind of a bummer yesterday, so we had a very boring and low key day at home. I think she started to feel a little better at night though, because we took her to Sweet Tomatoes, and she ate like a champ, and behaved like a little lady. She slept a little better last night, and seems in better spirits today, but her sweet little nose is still running like a faucet. Oh well.
Anyway, Maya has recently taken an interest in the baby in the mirror. She smiles at her, touches her, and laughs with her. It's awfully cute, and provides many minutes of enjoyment and laughter every day. Today, Maya especially liked that the baby was wearing pigtails.
