Mmm...Spinach Rice

Papou cooked come great Greek food on Sunday and we had leftovers--guess who enjoyed them??

Do I have something on my face?

I think I might have some spinach rice on my back?

Riding in my automobile...

Wow and Papou visited this weekend..unfortunately we forgot to take any pictures of us all together! We did manage to get out on Saturday night without Maya to celebrate Peter's 30th birthday at a restaurant in DC. It was a great meal. (For those of you who live in the area-Blue Duck Tavern is a must try!).

I can't believe that the summer is almost over and Maya's birthday is fast approaching! Here are some pictures of her riding her car:

11 months! (Yesterday...)

I was a slacker and didn't post anything yesterday on her actual 11 month birthday--I was still recovering from Peter's birthday weekend in Vegas (no, Maya did not accompany us!). We had a great time, but it was nice to get home.

Maya has been developing a little willpower...good for her. Frustrating for her parents ;) She definitely lets us know if she doesn't want to go in her high chair, stroller or be put down from our arms. On the other hand, she is so adventurous! Last week, she was playing at an indoor playground and went crawling right through a 5 foot tunnel-no encouragement or anything. She crawls right up to people to say "hi!".

No signs of walking-she's adept at crawling, pulling up, etc-and can stand for a little bit, but is too unsure of herself to do it. I think she figures she can get wherever she wants with crawling, so why bother with the walking?

I need to take more pics, but here is one with her dad from last week:

Dinner made difficult...

Maya has found a new form of entertaining herself..unfortunately it makes her actually eating pretty difficult:

However, I think the end result is the fostering of a beautiful friendship between Maya and Ajax. He clearly puts up with all her ear pulling, eye poking and crawling all over him because he gets some good grub at the end of the day.

Maya is such a little ham nowadays. She loves to flirt with pretty much anyone and will smile and laugh until everyone smiles and laughs back at her.

She's been getting more comfortable cruising while holding on to furniture and is standing for a couple of seconds on her own.

Playgroup Mania

On Saturday we had 9 families from our playgroup over for a potluck BBQ. Yup, thats about 20 adults and 10 children. Don't ask me what I was thinking. However, I think a good time was had by all (even if it was a bit chaotic).

Here are some pictures:

I have a feeling that my mom will say there aren't enough of Maya...so here are a few extra:
