7 months

Maya turns 7 months today - here's a few recent pics:

She loves to spend most of her time playing on the floor. She's pretty steady now and can catch herself when she starts to fall sideways, but still falls backwards occasionally. She's trying to crawl but doesn't get anywhere. She can lift up on her arms but doesn't quite get up on her knees enough.




and my personal favorite. She's taken to breathing real hard out of her nose, almost grunting, when she is playing with you. It seems to crack her up when she does it.

Christmas 2007

Christmas has come and gone. We had a good time opening presents


Maya did pretty good with lots of nice presents from family and friends, she got lots of books this year and we are looking forward reading all of them to her.

From me she got a giant tivo doll:


Her Aunt Kerri gave her a mechanical duck that she just loves


Our friend Jordan got her a saucer that she enjoys playing in.


and best of all the family got a 52" big screen for her to watch sesame street on

Doing Maya a solid

Now that Maya has turned 6 months we've started her on solid food


We started her on rice cereal and have moved on to bananas, carrots and peas. We are introducing one new food every three days or so in order to watch for any allergic reactions. So far she's liked everything but the peas, whic make her look like this:


We went out and got a high chair so she can eat dinner at the table with us, she also got a cup so she can try to drink some juice as well. So far she likes to chew on it.

'Tis the Season

Santa paid a visit to TiVo this week and Maya got to meet him (saves us a trip to the mall...whew)

She wished for peace on earth and goodwill toward man (and a pony). Unfortunately she's starting to get a little weary of strangers. Not yet at the screaming stage, but definitely at the "getting sad when she's not sure what's going on" stage.


Here she is back to her bubbly self at home in her christmas outfit.

6 Months!

Maya turned 6 months old yesterday! We didn't have a big party as we were just back from Hawaii that morning (pics soon!).

She's starting to roll over but still needs a little help when her arm gets in the way. She's doing lots of babbling (sometimes very loud!) and loves to sit in her chair and play with her toys.
