In need of a bang trim...

Baba is on my case that Maya needs a hair cut and that she is miserable with all her hair in her eyes. We tried to go on Friday, but her stylist was very busy. Perhaps tomorrow..

Preparing an elaborate meal:

We can also file this one under Ajax's random spots #423..where did this dog come from? Perhaps he would be more comfortable if he actually reclined the chair...

16 months! (a bit late...)

Here are some pictures of Maya-she turned 16 months on Sunday!

Hugging Grace:

Some little updates-words are getting clearer! Baba was tickling Maya and saying "tickle, tickle, tickle" and now she will say "ticka, ticka, ticka". And today she said Grace. Like perfectly--she didn't repeat, but it was heard by multiple people.

She's repeating a lot-so I have to be careful with the profanities that come out of my mouth when I'm driving!

Otherwise, we've been a bit under the weather with a nasty head cold (that apparently sticks around forever), so we've been trying to lay low. That's kind of hard with a toddler!

Happy New Year!

Sorry it's been so long since my last post-that was way too long of a stretch!

In that time we've managed to spend quality time at home, have a fun New Year's with friends and go to Arizona and Mexico and come back! We went to Arizona so Peter could help out with the Obama campaign and then managed a quick visit to Mexico to see Papou and Wow.

Maya's been a lot of fun (for the most part)! She's in love with dogs. She is saying new words every day and really understanding when you speak to her.

Maya had her 15 month checkup back on 12/28. She weighs a little over 23 lbs, is 31 3/4 inches tall and is in 65th and 75th percentile respectively. The doctor was very impressed with all the words she can say and even said that she is advanced ;) And she counts "Woof" as a word, which Maya will say if you ask her what a dog says..Actually it sounds more like "oooh oooh", but it's close enough for government work!

We had a great time on our trip and got to enjoy some warmth and sunshine-it's a bit of a shock to be back in chilly climes! Here are some pictures from our trip (you can see the whole set on Flickr).:
