Maia Month #13 Battle Report

Maia is mere days away from being 13 months old, although she still weighs just under 20 pounds and can fit in many onesies in the 6-9 month range. She's had a pretty weird sleep schedule the past week or so, and sometimes will only sleep for about 90 minutes in a single nap midday (and 10 - 11 hours straight through the night). When awake, she's crawling everywhere and recently figured out how to get up into the rocking chair using her side-saddle leg methodology.

Maia is very opinionated now, quick to get frustrated if she isn't getting what she wants (Cheerios) or we take her away from a dangerous situation (picking her up when she keeps trying to crawl into the street at the park). She still isn't speaking, beyond calling everyone and everything "dada", but she's very vocal and has her own collection of grunts paired with finger-pointing to express herself.

She now likes a few of her stuffed animals, notably Two-ty the ostrich head (so named because she reminds us of Booty the cat, so it's Booty Two), Chippy the chipmunk, and Leeloo the llama, but her favourite at the moment is her nameless bunny head on a blanket that she takes to bed with her. Other regular activities include "reading" all the books on her shelf, emptying out lower drawers, library storytime with Rebecca, and afternoon mall walks with me when the humidity is too high for a park visit. She loves water-based activities but hates when I turn the water off in the bathtub because the environment is not as important as playing with running water.

On the parent side, we're doing well. We have the routines down pretty decently now and even squeeze some time in here and there for pre-baby activities like yoga and video games. A couple times, we even had friends over for real meals!
