Maia Battle Report: Year 2 Month 4

Maia is now 2 and 1/3 years old, somewhere around 33" tall, and about 24 pounds. Her favourite part of last month was the build-up to Halloween and her Sister Bear costume. We discovered that she had gained an instinctual fear to realistic decorations like creepy humanoids or giant spiders, as she wouldn't enter the Halloween costume store without being carried. This is also where she started giving us big, tight hugs -- sometimes now, she initiates big hugs unprovoked while lazing around the house.

Maia likes the new variety of clothes she can wear now that the weather is changing, and we spend a great deal more time outside. She's a climber at the playground, able to go up ladders without considering heights (like a cat chasing a squirrel up a tree). Her current game of the moment is to order me around -- "Daddy, come here", "Daddy, drag me across floor", "Daddy, roll!". In the woods this week, she "invented" the game of "Red Light, Green Light" based on her extensive experience sitting at traffic lights in northern Virginia. We spent a good portion of the nature walk standing still then running 3-4 steps ahead in little spurts.

Daylight Savings Time absolutely broke her brain. We put her to bed on Saturday with the common sense expectation that she would wake up on her normal cycle, now 1 clock hour earlier. Instead, she woke up 2 hours earlier, resulting in the longest Sunday ever. Napping went poorly and the night concluded with a huge meltdown. This repeated on Monday and it wasn't until Tuesday that we found some semblance of normalcy again.
