Maya turned 29 months old this week and she's been doing great! Her memory continues to impress us, she still talks about the trip to New Orleans and can think about and talk about things we will do in the future. She can now carry on long conversations about things and is enjoying longer books.
She's enjoying day care but has some trouble leading up to the drop off but as soon as she gets there, she is fine. She's learned some new songs and really enjoys the painting and drawing that they do.
We've done a few fun things this month, a couple weekends ago we spent the day at the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
The highlight of the trip was when we were hanging out by the beach and a sea lion came up right out of the water where we were standing. He was close enough that we needed to back up to get out of the way (and so Maya wouldn't try to pet him).
Maya's Uncle Mike came for a visit and had a great time. Maya really loves playing with her Uncle Mike.
Halloween came and went. Maya dressed as a Ladybug.
We went trick or treating during the day in Saratoga and scored a good amount of candy. They have a good set up for a couple hours where all the stores participate.
And of course, I had to teach her the correct way to sing for her candy...
(Trick or treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat)
Our evening trick or treating was a disaster, we only had one trick or treater all night and when Maya and I went out and knocked on doors, no one was prepared with candy. Maya loved knocking on the doors but got a little scared when someone actually answered so we cut the evening short after just a few doors.
The day after Halloween we went to a birthday party and the hosts gave Maya a beautiful outfit from India that Maya has been enjoying wearing.
