Thanksgiving Weekend...

We had a great thanksgiving weekend with Dad, Rebecca and Tessa. There was lots of cooking--holy turkey, batman! We stuffed ourselves silly and passed out (well, the girls did--Peter and Dad went to see the new Bond movie, which Dad pronounced "Fantastic!").

On Friday and Saturday we had Mike and Amanda's wedding activities. The wedding was beautiful and I think they had a great time. Peter and I actually spent the night downtown on Saturday while Dziadek and Wai-Puo watched Maya. For those of you in the dark, Rebecca is now Wai-Puo which means maternal grandmother in Chinese. No, we are not Chinese. Yes, my father wants to be. is a pic of us at the wedding...

And here is another one of us with Mike & Amanda:

We've had quite a few guests over the last 2 months and it seems like we are winding down--no more guests for a while...but we are going to take our first airplane trip this month--we'll be going to NY for Christmas.

More pics of Maya to come..I know that's why y'all come visit!

Happy 2 month birthday Maya!

Maya had her 2 month check up today! The stats:

Weight: 10 lbs 8 oz!!!
Height: 22 1/4 inches

She is a growing girl--She has basically doubled her weight since she left the hospital!

It wasn't all fun and games though--she did have her first set of immunizations..which she did not enjoy. But she recovered quickly and spent the afternoon napping.

She said her first word last night ;) Well, she was cooing and it sounded like Hi! Peter and I both heard it--it was right before we gave her the bath. We ran out to buy a video camera today to capture the next word on film..coming soon to a blog near you!

PS. Hopefully technical difficulties are coming to an end, since I am coming to you from my PHat new iMac.

More pictures soon!

Technical Difficulties...

That's why there haven't been updates--but hopefully those will be rectified in the next day or two.

It's no updates. But we go for a 2 month check up today..

Here are some latest "8 week" pics:

So. Stupid. To. Be. Up. This. Late.

A new leaf..

I am turning over one--I swear. I was so good with the regular updates and pictures, and all of a sudden life just started getting really busy!

Maya is doing great--she is growing a ton. We don't know how much she weighs right now, but we have our 2 month checkup a week from today. My bet is about 10 pounds! I can't believe how fast time is flying!
She definitely isn't the little squirt that we brought home from the hospital..she smiles regularly and can lift her head quite a bit.

Best of all? She's sleeping! (kind of). A good night is sleep from 10-3, and then from 4-7. Who knew I would be so excited to get 5 hours of uninterrupted sleep?

Here are some pics of Maya from the recent days:

And more sleeping:

Hanging out with "aunt Amy" this weekend:

Chillin' in her favorite chair from her Aunt Karin, Uncle Paul & cousins, Jack, Kate & Kira:

And just because I can't resist Ajax's random hang out spots:

Tomorrow's the Big Day!!

Election day, that is! It's been a crazy few weeks leading up to the election and we are really excited. We hope that there are lots of reasons to celebrate tomorrow..

I have been helping the Seals campaign with their election night party, so that's been taking up quite a bit of my time--and Maya takes up the rest.

Maya is doing great--she sported her Dan Seal's t-shirt on Friday during a rally. She smiles and is very sweet--most of the time! She is still sleeping in 3-4 hour increments--but we've been lucky to have some 4-5 hour stretches here and there.

More pictures to come very soon--as soon as the election is over we will have tons of time!

In the are some "brand new" pics--we finally managed to get Maya's first moments off of Peter's camera phone..
