Birth Day

Maia is 5 today!

Her most recent favourite activities including drawing or painting bunnies and cutting endless crafts out of her Don't Let the Pigeon Finish the Activity Book activity book. However, bunnies have taken a slight dip in popularity -- on June 3, she said that she might not need Original Bunny anymore and that maybe Ian could have him as Ian grows up. She still carries Original Bunny around, but always pairs it with Lyla Cat, a fluffy white cat from her wall of stuffed animals.

Speaking of cats, Maia's favourite pretend game is to be a cat. She wears cat ear headbands (paired with a princess headband to be Princess Cat) and changes her name monthly. In May, she was Pussy Cat, June, Timmy Cat, and July, Hello Kitty. Drawing inspiration from real life, she will pretend to be a cat that has to throw up a hairball so Daddy Cat has to hold her over the kitchen floor so she doesn't get throw up on the carpet.

When not being a cat, Maia will walk around the house making continuous nonsense sounds (think "Lerdle lerdle lerdle..."). Her trifecta of movies is still Frozen, Frozen 2, and Encanto, although the classic 101 Dalmations occasionally pops up.

We're throwing her a little family birthday today, and then a bigger kid birthday in our backyard on Saturday. The latter will not be ostentatious -- a pinata and sprinkler from Five Below, a plate of wrap sandwiches from Costco, and little gift bags for her friends.
