Maia Battle Report: Year 2 Month 8

Maia is now 32 months old and 26.6 pounds of joie de vivre. She regularly talks about herself as if she is the Original Bunny that she carries everywhere, like "Bunny wants to go to the payground". If Maia doesn't want to eat vegetables, sometimes Bunny does, providing a useful loophole in the logic. Bunnies are her obsession, and I have drawn far more bunnies in the past three months than anyone should.

Maia understands cycles like days of the week and the sun and the moon. She likes to consider things in order and regularly asks what comes "after" whatever I just said. She is in the "what" phase of annoying questions which sometimes feels like she wants to ask "why" but doesn't know any of the other Five W Words. She can consistently get Alexa to play "The Goodnight Song", "Let It Go", "Under the Sea", and "Bunny Foo Foo" (except the one time Foo Fighters played instead).

A couple nights per week, we'll watch 15 - 30 minutes of TV together, usually Mr. Roger's (her current favourite), Sesame Street, or Superwings. When she plays with her stuffed animals, she has no problem pretending and has even taken to reciting dialog from the perspective of the animals. On Wednesday, I bemoaned the lack of horses in our pasture. She said, "Maybe Flower Bunny will dress up like a horse" and proceeded to call that animal "Flower Horse" for the rest of the day.

Maia's naps have been replaced with quiet time in her nursery. She seems to enjoy the downtime which also gives us a chance to recharge between our morning-to-evening childcare handoff. She sleeps 12 hours per night, although a few times recently, she's woken up around 2 AM and talked to herself for about an hour before going back to sleep.

All is well on the parent front. We're looking forward to warmer weather to increase the amount of outdoor time we can have (especially in our new screen porch)!
