Purple zebra, baby bear

Dear Maya and Emi,
We've had another rough and rewarding week with you two. Rough in trying to figure out how to get everyone the proper amount of sleep, food, and attention at the proper times. Rewarding in that you're both so sweet, lovable, and adorable in so many ways.

We came up with a 'backup' costume one night thanks to
a few pipe cleaners, several hair ties, and your purple zebra PJs.

Maya, you've been such a rockstar lately. You always clear your plate from the table after breakfast and lunch. You try to keep quiet when Emi's sleeping or not quite sleeping, which is more often the case. You try to say "please" and "thank you" and "excuse me" when you should. You are always kind and sweet to Emi, especially when you first see her in the morning or after your nap. You've been really understanding about how mommy and daddy are twice as busy. We're so proud of you!

Just LOOK at how my muscles are developing!
This is my pretty blanket from Auntie Rhi that I like to stretch out on.
And this is an outfit I inherited from my awesome big sister, Maya.
Cute, huh?
Emi, you've been giggling and smiling a lot more lately. Mommy loves to give you tickly kisses on your neck, especially when changing your diaper, as it always gets you laughing. And you've been more chatty, too, even one time this week at 3 or 4am you decided to start a one-sided conversation in your breathy little voice. Unfortunately we've had some hiccups in your nighttime sleep in the last week, but daddy has helped get us back on track in the last 24 hours so all fingers are crossed!

Looking forward to lots of fun to come in the next couple weeks. Love you two!
