Maya has learned to say thank you. She says it all the time. It is so sweet. When we say thank you, she says "welcome". If I slip or hurt myself, she asks "otay, Mommy?". When she wants a turn she says "Maya turn". Yesterday I had her outside on the deck with me while I shoveled snow. After a while she came to me and said "I'n cold!". Last week I gave her Cheerios with milk and bananas. After a few bites she said "all done". When I asked if she ate anything she replied "buh-nana". Sure enough, she had picked out all the bananas. She is starting to work on 3 word sentences now, like "Maya brush teeth". It's still hard to understand her at times. For example, Gramma, Sarah and Trevor, all sound like "Da-wa". But she is making great progress.
Matt gave Alana these awesome "coffee glasses" for Christmas!
Maya cooks up some oranges in her new kitchen. She calls them apples.
Look who I caught playing with Maya's kitchen! After I snapped the photo he flips over and pretends like he wasn't! He's also the one who steals her tricycle the most. After keeping up with the big brother for 6 years, it's nice to see him acting like a little kid once in a while.
