Good Christmas..

Here we are in East Hampton hanging out..not much to report and no pictures to post. I did forget to mention that Maya laughed for the first time on Friday, the 22nd. She is so happy! Peter loves to make her laugh which means he laughs and talks like Elmo and she thinks it's hysterical (although, of course, she has no idea who Elmo is).

Christmas was nice..Peter got new gloves and a navigation system for the car, and I got beautiful black pearl earrings and Photoshop! Tessa scored the best-she got a new iMac laptop.

We are staying around here through the weekend and then we may head over to DC before going home.

Alright off to entertain the munchkin..though she is pretty self sufficient these days!

We're off to NY tomorrow..

So wish us luck! I'll be flying with Maya and Peter will be driving with Ajax & Kona. It's kind of a bummer that we won't be travelling together, but it'll be easier this way. Maya would not be happy in the car for 14 hours and Ajax & Kona have never flown before..and we aren't starting. Kona is enough of a stress case as it is! Luckily I'll be travelling lightly (other than the 12 lb baby strapped to my chest)--Peter's taking all the gear and luggage in the car.

We are looking forward to a relaxing week with Dziadek, Waipo and Tessa. Ha! Hopefully we'll take lots of pictures of Maya's first Christmas..

Happy Holidays!

3 months!!

Well, no new pictures to post--I've been a slacker this week. Actually, it's just been hectic with all sorts of running around seeing people and preparing for our trip out to NY on Saturday.

Maya is 3 months old today! I can't believe it. She is so stinkin' cute too. I think she is starting to laugh a little. Everyone says there is a big change at 3 months--but I didn't notice anything today :)

I'm THAT mom..

OK, so I know everyone thinks their baby is cute..and not ALL babies can be so yummy, but look at her! She is so darn cute! I have become one of those moms that thinks their baby is the best, most gorgeous baby ever..

But isn't she???

Lazy Saturday Mornings..

Some pictures of Maya from this morning..

She's sleeping like a champ--last night she slept from 10-9!! She likes to sleep in like her parents...

Loving her "siblings":

Smiler Wiler..

A couple of pics I took this morning of the little one smiling..she looks so cute, I can't resist!

And one where she isn't smiling..but still darn cute!

Not much going on here..except I think I hear Maya waking up from her nap--there goes the idea of that shower! Oh and we had our blinds in our bedroom installed today only about a year and a half after living here ;) Thanks to Babcia for those--now maybe we can all sleep in a bit in the morning..They look really nice..I'll post a before and after pic when I get a chance.

Peter made a friend...

Peter is very proud and wants to post this picture:

He met Bill at a luncheon a little while back, right before the election..thanks to his friend Dave. He is very excited about the picture and it redeems us from the time we met him when we first moved to DC and forgot our camera (before the advent of camera phones).

Perhaps this picture will mean more in a couple of years when he is the "First Husband?"

We shall see...

Obama '08 is our hope ;)

One more pic...

I took a bunch the other I thought I would share two more..

Our weekend was fairly uneventful...but quite cold! The snow stuck around on the trees and everywhere and made for some beautiful winter scenery. We kept wondering why we were so cold today, and then saw on the evening news that the high temp today was 19 degrees! Maya is getting a lot of use out of the yummy Patagonia snowsuit that her friends Peter and Carrie got her!

Maya has gotten very interactive lately...she loves to make funny sounds that we love to interpret into words--"Did she just say hello? Did she say Baa--does she want a bottle?" Peter is sure she is about to say "dada"...

She also loves to give big gummy smiles. Those are the best--we are eagerly awaiting the giggle..hopefully soon!

Snowy Day pics..

Maya made a friend today...

She was a bit cold..but she should get used to it if she's going to grow up in Chicago:

And then she hung with her siblings and the new friend:

She also hung with her siblings inside:

It's a Miracle!!

Maya slept from 10pm to 6:45 am! That's a whole night in my book!! I've never been so happy to be up at 7am.

We also woke up to a couple of inches of snow and more coming of that adventure to come!
