Let's Try, Putting it in My Mouth

Maya has taken to putting everything in her mouth. Her kitty, The birdie Cori made her and sent from Portland. It's her fave. She seems to enjoy it more than her pacie, but not more than her hand.

We took her to the park and showed her the geese and the pretty flowers. She's like her momma, she loves being outside. A big day equals a nap in the car seat, and a big bottle when she got home.

Busy Week

Sorry such a long delay between posts. We've been really busy. Actually, I've been busy trying to balance work and home. Maya's just been busy sucking on her hand and trying to reach her feet. So hard!! And yet she wants them so badly!!

She's also been trying to coo and talk more. Oh and her cute baby laughs!! You know when it's not quite a robust laugh but they are trying and noises come out? She especially likes to talk to "Mr. Guy" which is a smiley face I Sharpie'd onto a card. She just sits on her changing table and coos away to her black and white friends. She laughs at mommy and daddy.
Also, she's trying to figure out a routine and so far it goes like this: Up around 6:30AM, nap around 8:30Am...wake up whenever with baby naps in between, back to sleep for a long time around 1PM, Up again around 4....sleep for a few minutes here and there until 8 or 9, then it's bedtime. What we're witnessing is a big girl in the making. A big girl who keeps out growing (in length, not width) all her clothes. Three months old on Monday!!

Two Month Check Up

This week Maya had her two month check was a week late, and on Monday she'll be ten whole weeks! We found out that she is 24 and a half inches (97%), 12 pounds 2 ounces (80%), and 39.00 cm for her head (55%). So she's for some reason a very tall baby even though mom and dad are not tall adults. At the check up she received three shots in her legs which resulted in her having a silent scream, turning purple and then finally letting out a real scream. She didn't feel very good that night and needed some tylenol.

This week was also a big week for mommy....she went back to work so Maya has been hanging with Daddy. Daddy says that Maya is loving bath time now that we moved her bath into the big tub. She gets really upset at Daddy for not pouring the water into her mouth. She gets even more upset at Daddy for not letting her slide down her tub into the water so she can drink it that way. She gets EVEN MORE upset when Daddy takes her out of the tub.

Daddy says that Maya also enjoys watching him play guitar. She likes to watch his hands for long periods of time. She's been enjoying watching people talk and will imitate mouth movements. She also has been fascinated by her "piggies" as Mommy calls them. She really wants to get those toesies in her mouth, or at least in her hands but she can't figure out how to do it. This is starting to frustrate her. When I get home in the evening, I take her outside on the porch swing and we rock together, looking around at everything. I mean everything! She's taking it all in and really loving the world! And then she falls asleep.
