The purple Christmas tree

Dear Maya,

Lots of firsts this week to report...

*First time writing the letter "M"!!!

*First time saying so many new big words and phrases: "Possible" (though you might mean "impossible"), "terrible" and "amazing" (you've got those ones right), "perfect" and "correct" (pronounced without the "t"), and "no big deal" (though it was a big deal when you gave that as your reason not to kiss daddy goodnight!)

*First time cutting your own hair: We were wrapping Christmas presents. You were using your kid-safe scissors to cut little triangles of paper. Daddy looked over and saw hair on your table. Luckily it didn't require cutting much to remedy, but the sides are shorter now. Thank goodness for forgiving curls! Sigh...

*First time sleeping in your big girl bed: You fell out a couple times the first night, only once that we know of last night, and we haven't heard anything yet tonight. You love sleeping in there and, though you required a variety of stuffed animals for sleeping for a while there, you're back to only requesting your Kermit again.

*Aaaaand, as you can tell by the photos peppered throughout this post, we decorated our first tree of 2013! We still intend to get a real tree and do it up traditionally, but we wanted one to put presents under for when Grandma and Papa Stan visit this week. After a pillow fight to warm up, we let you pick the color scheme of the tree from the various ornaments we have and you chose purple. Of course you clumped a lot of the ornaments together and you seemed to like that we compared them to grapes. You love this tree!

Well, mommy needs some shuteye. We've got a really fun Thanksgiving week ahead!
