Well, I think Maya is officially not a newborn anymore! I'm not sure when they official become toddlers, but she has definitely become a monkey and a worm. She can't sit still! She doesn't really like to be just held anymore...she'll only stand being carried if you're actually going to go somewhere. Staying in one spot is unacceptable.
Crawling is now definitely Maya's favorite mode of transportation. She's been getting better and better with each day-it's amazing. She'll almost come when called, which is a skill Ajax still hasn't mastered at almost 7 years old.
We were very punctual and took Maya to her 9 month appointment on the actual day! The stats:
Weight: 20 lbs, 12 oz (85th percentile)
Height: 28 1/4 (75th percentile)
Pretty impressive, huh? The word on the street is also that her two front top teeth are on their way..but the doctor said it could be anywhere from a few days to weeks..so we'll just have to be patient.
I didn't get a chance to take a whole lot of pictures today, but we managed to snap a few before she went to bed:
Yesterday with Ajax..funny how he all of a sudden wants to be her best friend when there is food involved:
