This week with Maiya G.

Maiya with Mama

Today, Maiya is 2 1/2 months old. At her 2 month appointment last week, she was 12 lbs, 3 oz, and 24 1/4 inches long. We have settled into somewhat of a groove. She nurses about every 3 hours during the day, give or take an hour. This week, she has started sleeping a little bit longer, going from an average of 3 hours of sleep a night to maybe 5-7 hours. We think it's because we started swaddling her again at night. I'm still waking up every 3 hours, but last night, she slept from 3am till almost 9am, skipping the 6:30 feeding.

Some days, we are out and about, and other days, we stay home all day. When we're home, we do baths, have tummy time, and air time (no diaper).

--Monday night, Tony had a J-townvoice meeting, so Maiya & I went to have Thai food with Monica and the very adorable 2 1/2 year old Dyami.
--Tuesday night, we went to The Talpa for dinner, then went to visit Grandpa Larry and Uncle Bill.
--On Wednesday morning, we went to visit my cousins, Cherie & Roxane. Cherie is visiting with her husband Didier and two boys from France, so it was great to see them. Then, we went from there to Great Leap, where we visited phloe, Luke & Harry. Lily stopped by too.
--Yesterday, we stayed home all day, and I went grocery shopping after Tony came home from work, then we had a visit from Arvin last night.
--Today, after her bath and filing the tax extension, we're going to go run some errands.

When Maiya's awake, she's much more alert now. She "talks" with Max the Monkey, when you put him up on the mobile above her pack n' play. When you put her to the mirror, she will flirt with herself and laughs at herself. She smiles widely and will follow a picture of Bert & Ernie when you move it from side-to-side. Last night, Tony put "Lamb-y," a soft fuzzy white lamb rattle in her right hand, and she brought her left hand up to hold it in both hands. Tony said that she's a genius. I think he's right.

Maiya looks cuter with every picture. And you're looking pretty good yourself, mama.
