Good morning, birthday girl! Maya you are six years old today so this post is all about you. Mommy asked what you would like to do today and you said you wanted a surprise. Since you won't be reading this post beforehand, I can report that I plan to take you out to lunch, to a movie, and to see your buddies Wyatt and Natalie. Then we'll come home and have your requested waffle dinner and open some presents!

Maya, you're growing up so quickly. You're very much into Beauty and the Beast and the Nutcracker right now. You can read tons of words that are 3 to 4 letters long and even figured out 'family' and 'polar' in the car on Christmas Day. Your artistic skills always amaze us. You have been very snuggly lately. Last night you told us that your mouth hurt a little and we discovered a 6-year molar peeking out. Mommy and daddy didn't even know about 6-year molars. Whoa.
Here are your answers to our annual interview. Previous years are here, here, and here.
