A quick Maya update

Dear Maya,

Just a brief post tonight as mommy wants to spend some quality time with Grandma and Poppa Stan. They came up from North Carolina this afternoon to visit us for a couple of days. You got a two-hour head start hanging out with them while mommy was at work, and you already learned how to push around the safari jeep toy they gave you. After having daddy's homemade pizza for dinner (you had your own smaller version with spinach and peppers), Grandma helped mommy give you a bath and put you to bed.

Who needs mascara when a bath gives you lashes like this?
New things you do:
"Wash" your chest and belly yourself in the bath.
Go to the bookcase and reach up when we say "Do you want to read a book?"
"Read" your book yourself, making garbledy talking noises while turning the pages of your books.

Looking strangely surprised by your most-read (and chewed!) book

New things you've experienced this week:
Getting a bottle of milk from daddy first thing in the morning instead of nursing (yeah!)
Playing a special game of chase with us using ogre masks to celebrate Setsubun
(For more info on this Japanese festival, click on this link to last year's post)

Wearing your ogre headband agreeably

New things you've eaten:
Cottage cheese
Daddy's homemade bagels

Closing your eyes while playing Supergirl with Uncle Matt
Well, that's all for this week. Love you!

Reading Mommy's favorite book before bed
