Maia Week #44 Battle Report

Maia is now 10.126 months old and still right around 16 pounds. We need to fatten her up soon as her preferred brand and size of diapers just doubled in price while the next size up remains the same (no doubt some strange Amazon algorithm that has deduced we have a never-growing baby). The photo blocks we bought only have one "4" on the 12 faces, which is why there is a Pinterest-quality 4 added to one of the blocks.

Maia is rapidly accumulating new skills along an exponential curve, to the point where we started a list on the whiteboard to capture anything new. She plays the game where she'll hand you something and then expect it back, although she's something of an Indian giver half the time. She also turns the pages at the appropriate breaks during story time and occasionally skips all of the boring character development to get to the last page. Just last Tuesday, she pulled herself up on the diaper changing station and started interacting with stuff on the second shelf -- this milestone means that the height level of chaos has increased slightly all throughout the house. She supported herself for about 10 minutes before sitting, but cannot just stand on her own.

We still take daily walks in the park although more and more I'll just sit her in the grass and let her explore at her own pace. She's started crawling through the grass like an army soldier, following me around a six foot radius while I steer her clear of goose poop and overprotective mama geese.

Rebecca and I are divided on first words. I believe that just before Maia's 10 month birthday she said both "CAT" and "KITTY" in succession when pursuing Amber down the hall. Rebecca does not concur. Maia is also pretty close to saying "DADA", but that's a Novice level word and probably does not count.
