Christmas Part III Christmas Day

On Christmas morning Dadda and Momma woke up with a cold. But we had to muster the energy to go over to Great Grandma and Grandpa Patterson's for Christmas.

First, some presents with Momma and Dadda.

Eating Bows.

Eating more bows that night.

By the Christmas tree which has my jumperoo under it...(photos coming soon)

Grandma Paula has the best bows to eat.

Christmas wore out Momma and Dadda who are still recovering from nasty colds (Momma more so than Dadda, she missed two days of work!) but I'm just happy as can be and enjoying all my new stuff. Thanks families!!


Christmas Part II Grandma Jo's Part II

Here are some more pictures from Grandma Jo's. Needless to say, she absolutely loves her cousins and thinks that big kids are the bees knees.

Watching Pete jump.

Maya and Maisie playing.

Maya meets Darth Vader.

Christmas Part II Grandma Jo's Part I

Grandma Jo's Christmas had a lot of activity going on which fascinated and excited Maya. All those cousins and all that paper!! Gifts being handed out and ripped opened! She wanted to put it all in her mouth.

Maisie takes a break.

Christmas Part I

Maya went to a lot of family Christmas gatherings so I've decided to have several posts just to include as many photos as possible. First up, Grandpa Greg and Peggy's.

Maya and Daddy crash in Grandpa's magical vibrating chair. Kinda like a bouncy chair for grown ups.

The Long Roll

This is how I roll. Yeah, I'm a rolla'...

Who needs crawling when you can roll down the hall to Momma's lens cap?

On Thursday is Momma's Work Christmas Party, and on Friday we go to Grandma's for two Christmas' in Ames!

For Thanksgiving we went to Grandma Jo's in Ames and we also went over to Grandpa Greg's. Maya was so happy to final get to meet her Uncle Aaron, Auntie Leah and especially her cousin Maisie.

Maya so loves kids. She just watches them constantly and follows them with her eyes, much like a mall security guard, but slimmer... So she got to play with Max, Maisie,and Nika and loved every minute of it. She was a good baby all weekend and let everyone hold her without any fussing. (Daddy says she's just glad to be out of the house finally!)

(Here is Maya with Grandma and the taggie blanket that Grandma made for her, she loves to sing to her taggies.) On Monday we went in for Maya's six month check up and found out that she's in the 85th percentile for her noggin and her height (27 inches!), and in the 55 percentile for her weight (16 lbs. 9 ounces). And last night she only woke up once for milk! Six whole months! How time does fly.

Just for fun, here's a picture of Max showing Maya how to do The Force, you can see that she's getting because she's lifting her hands up like Max. Soon she will be a Jedi Master like her cousin Max.
