Happy 2nd Birthday Maya!

We've had a long and exciting day here celebrating Maya's 2nd birthday! This morning we had a playdate in the park with Maya's pre-school class. After that we had a yummy breakfast at the Silver Diner. That was followed by lots of birthday party prep and a nap (for Maya only, unfortunately!).

Here are some pictures from her birthday party. Mr. Don performed some children's songs and the kids had a great time just hanging out. The theme was "neighs". :)

Check out all our birthday party pics here!

First Day of School! (Yesterday...)

Yesterday, Maya had her first day of school! She is going to a toddler Montessori program every weekday for 2.5 hours every day! We drop her off at 9:15 and pick her up at 11:45. On the first day she was very brave, running right into the classroom. I don't think she realized I wasn't right behind her, but I scooted away before she could come back for me. When I picked her up she was crying a bit, but the teacher said it was normal and had nothing but nice things to say. This morning she was a bit more trepidatious about going back in, but she did and survived and made new friends in school. Hopefully she'll get used to the transitions soon and start enjoying leaving me every day-that will warm my heart!
Here is a picture of Maya ready to leave the house on her first day. She insisted on wearing a "jacky" even though it was close to 90 degrees outside. And she wore it the whole day. She also loves her new shoes.
