the big 0-2 :: maya @ 24 months

blowing out the candles
maya @ 2 years old :: november 4, 2007

  • as of 11.05.07 :: 22 pounds, 4 ounces (4th %ile), 31 inches (1st %ile)
  • it seems like she has a crush on ian's best friend, A. she always tries to sit next to him or kiss him when he comes over to our house. rupert commented that, "maya's going to be one of those girls who gets crushes on her brother's friends." i think he's worried already ...
  • likes to pick up "wan wan's unch" with a plastic bag.
  • had her first modeling "job" for the tag toys catalog (if you click on the catalog link you'll see maya on the cover and on page 41).
  • her bowel movements are getting a tad bit more regular (twice a week as opposed to once a week).
  • instead of "no thank you" she says "no please"
  • she unlocks the car door on her side
  • her blue's clues obsession continues :: her first full sentence was, "i wanna watch blue clue;" sort of sings the blue's clues song; and every paw print (or hand print, even) she sees is a clue.
  • trying to figure out how to count with her fingers.
  • her favorite food is clearly rice; she screams for it at meals ("wice! wice!") and devours it by the fistful.
  • likes it when we play guitar hero II and asks us for "tar"
  • dances in her car seat, and insists we acknowledge her "dance dance." if the song is not danceable she demands we change the playlist.
  • every hour she screams, "eat! eat!" but isn't very good at telling us what she wants to eat :: "what do you want to eat?" "yes."
  • she asks, "what?" with the inflection and pronunciation of an old eastern european lady :: "vaat??"
  • juice boxes are a piece of cake :: she can get the straw out of its packaging and puncture the straw hole, all without spilling.
  • she's always been into peeling labels and stickers, but now she's into peeling the wrappers off of crayons.
  • i'm beginning to think she doesn't like chocolate -- what's wrong with her?!
